Edwardian 1920s Gatsby Downton:

Downton Abbey,late Edwardian,1920s,vintage lace

Antique Style Victorian Edwardian Gatsby 1920s Dress Romantic Ivory Pink Lace


























Absolutely gorgeous, one of a kind, and decadently fabulous Edwardian/1920's Great Gatsby Downton Abbey vintage lace handsewn lavish DRESS...made to coordinate with my matching pink & ivory lace Edwardian/1920s hat (shown in the pics, NOT included in this listing)....it simply takes one's breath away! So perfect for a garden party or incredible vintage wedding....or a stunning gift for someone special....For many years I've looked at many of the "shabby chic" type garments made from vintage lace, but never cared for the "shabby" part; am just not into the frayed and tattered look....! So I decided to design my own very antique-inspired pieces that incorporate some of the exquisite laces & materials in my neverending stash, with more elegant & clean details....you won't find any raw edges or haphazardly tacked-on doilies here, only the fabulous vintage elements and fine-couture quality finishing that is the standard for all my creations ;-)

PLEASE BE SURE to read ALL of the description especially the measurements, and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. Also do take a moment to view all the numerous photos of this dress I have posted on my Facebook page..lots of closeups and different views. The coordinating hat and earrings can be found elsewhere in my listings, they are not included in this listing. This is all ready to ship, so still time to purchase for gift-giving!

I must take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who've become fans of my work...I love to know that my pieces inspire and delight others and am so appreciative of your wonderful encouragement and praise. :-) Am also very proud to have created the jewelry for America's Got Talent finalist and extraordinary performer, Prince Poppycock, for his last four performances on NBC's AGT during August and September, 2010! Please check out my fanpage at http://www.facebook.com/SavannahParkerDesigns on Facebook as I have many MORE photos of each of my items there, posted there in fullsize albums...be sure to click "like" on my FB page and you will be among the very first to see my newest creations + special offers just for my Facebook followers. I will very soon be opening my new website at Savannahparker.com as well, so do stay tuned :-)

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine, freshly-cleaned condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or rotting pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here!

This incredible piece was inspired by my love of antique Victorian, Edwardian and 1920's fashions and the flowing gorgeous lacy clothing that's SO in style right now....I've shown this over a plain ivory slipdress (not included) as an idea--but it would look equally fabulous, and even more PINK with a pink-colored slip underneath, for a vintage-themed wedding (would make a truly awe-inspiring piece for bridal wear!), Victorian/Edwardian tea or 1920's Gatsby/Downton Abbey event.....perfect tones for all-seasons, too. It has so many possibilities, and ever better, is a good size range---anyone from a x-small (the mannequin is a 4/6) up to about a 14-16 could wear this as it's fairly loose and free-flowing. VERY easy to put on--just slips over the head and does not have any fastenings. It's made of a melange of exquisite vintage/antique and contemporary fine laces: venise, antique filet, hand crochet, etc starting with a gorgeous intricate ivory net lace bodice, upon which I've lavished rows and rows of hand-dyed and completely handsewn delicately patterned light pink and ivory layered lace ruffles and elaborate antique filet lace insets at center front and back....as well as some exquisite vintage hand crocheted pink lace around the neckline and hand sewn ivory appliques as well as pink silk ribbon rose clusters on the front of the bodice. The lower part of the dress, which flares out from the slightly raised waistline to a complete circle at the hem, is all vintage very fine handmade, hand knotted intricate filet lace with more of the layered delicate pink lace flouncing added all around the hem of the skirt; and the dress is further accented by dainty handmade silk ribbon roses applied here and there...All of the lace is very soft and very comfortable-feeling next to the skin....again, so perfect for wearing to an event where you want a true vintage/antique look as well as modern comfort. This fabulous dress, with the exception of a couple of seams, is entirely sewn BY HAND as well as all of the exterior ornamentation, plus: I only use pure SILK thread for sewing both by hand and machine.

This has the loveliest cascading lacy ruffled sleeves which drape down on both sides, giving it such a romantic, ethereal look... like angel wings! The bodice is loose fitting and drapey as well, making it able to accommodate a range of sizes.
Measurements of this beauty are as follows:

Approx 44" around the slightly raised-waist--this is the smallest circumference area of the dress. Please keep in mind that it is shown here on a size 2/4 mannequin that is 5' 10", and a size 8-10 dressform; it will look and fit differently on other sizes and heights ..... Though the actual bust measurement is free-size as the armholes are open to the waist, I would say this would be best on not larger than a 44" bust measurement as it's not meant to fit tightly.
Length is 46" from shoulder to hem....hemline is a super-wide full circle and the skirt drapes beautifully down the body as you can see!

Since the major portion of this is made from antique laces, there may be some very slight variations in shading, etc. which is to be expected from vintage materials.....however as I mentioned before, I don't like shabby, off-color, mismatched or raggedy anything, so you can be sure this is as impeccably sewn and crafted as possible! As far as cleaning, I would strongly recommend dry-cleaning this dress; it could certainly be hand washed but one would have to be prepared for ironing of lace, etc (caution: do NOT use too hot an iron if you must iron it!!)-- so it's best trusted to professional cleaners....and care should definitely be taken when wearing this beautiful garment. Also, the patterning of the delicate lace makes it "see through" so a slip should be worn underneath; a pink one worn under would enhance the design elements even further! Be sure to check out the exquisite matching pink and ivory lace Edwardian/early 1920's hat that matches this dress, in my other listings....hat is NOT included in this listing.

Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase.....I don't do custom work or alterations, sorry! Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full BEFORE you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page). There are MANY more pics of this piece on my Facebook page so please do go there and check it out, if you would like to see closeup details, etc. Slip shown in photo with the dress is NOT included and is not for sale.

Please check my other listings for more clothing coming up very soon, as well as my very popular antique-stye hats, accessories & fabulous jewelry,.....I try to list new items at least weekly....always a great selection of handmade vintage and antique inspired beauties including the gorgeous coordinating jewelry for the total vintage look.
