This week's shop updates feature some of the loveliest vintage dresses and gowns from the 1920s and 1930s I have in my vintage stock. I've been holding on to these for awhile and to be honest I don't really know why...I just do that sometimes. I don't have anywhere to wear them to, they're not my size... but yet I just like having them hanging around the studio looking all sorts of pretty and dainty. *hehe*
VINTAGE 1930S LACE WEDDING GOWN
This 1930s lace wedding gown is so gorgeous! On a hanger it doesn't look like much, but when it's on...wowee zowee! Some of the lace on the shoulders came apart, but since this dress needs to be worn with something underneath, a stitch here and there should do the trick!
VINTAGE 1930S SHEER RUFFLED GOWN
I've had this dress for over a year. I kept thinking I would wear it somewhere, some kind of garden themed 1930s wedding or something...but alas, such an invitation never arrived in my mailbox...so to the shop this dress goes. It's a rescue piece. The armholes were raw and had to be reinforced. The lace ruffles actually weigh down the chiffon (so if you're a ruffles girl...this dress is for you!)
VINTAGE 1930S BLACK LACE ILLUSION GOWN
When I first spotted this dress again I just fell in love with the black lace (I love lace!) But when I saw it on the form, my jaw literally dropped. It is so much more gorgeous worn than it is just hanging! The back of the dress has the most demure of a bustle...well not sure if bustle is the right word, but you can kind of see the layered lace and how it would create a soft swish swish when you walk.
