1920s Princess Lace Dress
This dress dating from the 1920s is most likely made from older Victorian and Edwardian lace. A common practice has always been about recycling one's grandmother's laces into a more modern silhouette. The body of the dress is cotton princess lace and embroidered net. The center front of the bodice is a piece of machine Irish crochet. The tank shape of the dress has a dropped waist princess line, which is both flirty and pretty.
