#7563 $850Normandy lace dress, c.1930
Very popular around 1910, Normandy lace has patchwork designs of lace and whitework embroidery. This lovely dress features an assortment of high quality lace and fine hand embroidery.
The unconstructed style is comfortable and easy to wear. The skirt, flared below the gently shaped torso, dips to a small back train. The dress closes on the side with small snaps.
The symmetrical floral pattern is worked out with great ingenuity. It uses budding flowers, daisies, supporting floral stems, intermixed with abstract star/flower hybrids.
The design motifs are executed with exemplary delicacy and refinement. Nature and art together have flawlessly finished the floral jigsaw puzzle to adorn the female form. What an ideal choice for an informal wedding!
The condition is very good and wearable. In the lace are a few tiny holes, luckily invisible when worn over a white slip. This is reflected in the price. The dress is a great buy if you do not require pristine condition.
It measures: 40" bust, 38" waist, 42" hip, and 53" from shoulder to front hem. The dress is ankle length to floor length, depending on your height. The mannequin in the pictures is 6' tall.
