Exquisite 1930's Vintage Black Chantilly Lace Dress...
a sumptuous example with a svelte 1930's silhouette and in great ready-to-wear condition. The sturdy machine lace has a Chantilly lace pattern of various lush flowers and leafy scrollwork, and the imaginative designer has created a tasteful but sultry presentation by carefully varying the placement of the various pattern elements based partially on their density. Nicely tailored through the bodice, the dress releases to a flouncy full skirt with a tulle-backed, 108-inch hemline.
In excellent vintage condition, very strong, clean and ready to wear with one tiny, difficult-to-find-twice opening in the lace, the dress slips on easily over-the-head with tiny snaps at the wrists and measures 56-inches long with an unexpanded 36 bust, 32 waist, 40 hip and 23-inch sleeve.
