Lizzie wanted a dress that was both fabulous, easy to wear and be relaxed in. This extraordinary dress from about 1912 (what our American cousins like to refer to as the “Titanic” era) perfectly fitted the bill.
This exotic and bold Oriental style blend of Guipure lace and silk brocade skirt was incredibly fashionable about the turn of the last Century. We highlighted the lace by the removal of the lining of the sleeves and then slightly slimming them down. We also sympathetically neatened the silhouette though the bodice.
