I found the perfect fairy dress. I'm ready to put it on and dance off into the woods . . .


This dress was part of a large vintage stock purchase that I made last week. I am madly in love with it. First, it's a pretty pale green - and you know that I love green. It's sheer creped silk over a silk lining. The shoulders and upper back are ivory silk lace. There is a group of ribbon flowers on the front and the back where the lace  matches up perfectly with the cutout lining. The narrow sleeves have wide lace bells on the ends and the skirt has a pretty floaty angled hemline.



Hidden on the underdress are more pretty ribbon flowers.




Yummy.

It looks like it is late 1920s.

What a darling dress! I'd definitely say late 20s too. I love that they hid embroidered flowers in the underskirts.

It's a perfect fairy dress, but I'd also love to see it on a bride!

I would just die to own this dress! What a fabulous find! Thanks so much for sharing...

When I find something I absolutely love, I usually need to enjoy owning it for at least a year or more before I can even consider selling it. No wonder I'm not making any money!
