The original item from Tresors-de-Belles is now SOLD.
An authentic antique lace custom wedding dress made for a small child in the bridal procession as a 'flower girl', who carried little baskets and threw flower pedals behind the bride as she walked down the aisle. This beautiful old dress is made from fine lace, silk ivory sash with additional curling silk ivory detailing and little wax flowers set with crystal paste stones set inside the loops of the curls.
The detailing continues on the reverse of the dress which has some beautiful silk covered buttons down the back to the end of the sash. Little bunches of wax flowers on either end in the front of the sash. The white netting coming out of silk pipping along the collar and end of the sleeves is particularly enchanting with more wax flowers around the edges. I have gently hand cleaned the dress with gentle soap and water as it should never be submerged in water or dry cleaned.
The dress is in good condition for being delicate antique lace and considering the age, but it is not perfect: there are a few holes in the lace in the collar but the are hidden by the lace underneath, a few wax flowers missing and the very bottom of the dress shows lace repairs which reinforced the bottom as well. The silk buttons going up along the back are gorgeous but some of them show age to the color of the silk and maybe some of the flowers could use more reinforcement.The dress measures flat about 23" long in the front, 9" across the waist, 8" across the opening at the neck, 6" long sleeves with a 31" sweep.
A beautiful, old flower girls dress for the Victorian Bride's procession, this lovely little girls dress still has a few more weddings left in her if worn with care! Please see photos for details, it is a gorgeous one of a kind antique lace dress that is not often found.
