SOLD An absolutely exquisite 100% SILK satin dress and jacket set of the most unbelievable, HAND MADE Battenburg style lace that is entirely made of pure silk satin tubing, silk thread and handsewn glass beads----handwork like this is very rarely found in any contemporary-made garment, the quality of it is stupendous! It truly reminds me of some of the beautiful antique Battenburg lace pieces that I own---creating this all-silk lace must have taken hours and hours, and then to top it off, it's also accented at intervals with tiny glass beads. Has a separate silk satin slip, all in a wonderful soft sage green. This ensemble is vintage NEW with tags, never worn. It would be fabulous for a wedding or any formal occasion--all the incredible handwork has to be seen to be believed! I believe this was originally sold in the 90's or early 2000's at Nordstrom in their high end formal wear department.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE, please be sure to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and condition, and examine ALL the photos, BEFORE asking questions; and do be absolutely positive this piece will fit your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. I'm a degreed and experienced textile scientist/antique garment restorer and seamstress, and I very, very carefully note any and all condition issues or repairs to every piece of antique/vintage clothing that I'm selling, so I can't stress enough that even if they're in pristine condition, remember they are all decades old and NOT new clothing, so if you desire modern perfection please don't purchase vintage! I don't do layaways or take offers, so please don't ask, thank you. Jewelry/accessories/props in photos are not included and not for sale.

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....I've translated that love to my own contemporary creations as well as now offering some choice pieces of my extremely large collection of vintage and antique beauties!

Measurements of this wonderful ensemble are as follows:
On the dress:
Bust max: up to about 38-39".
Waist: 38"
Hip: about 42" max
Length is 50" from shoulder to hem; this fits and drapes SO beautifully on the body for a multitude of sizes, as you can see. Mannequin is approx. 5' 6" and a modern size 6/8, the outfit is a bit loose on the mannequin so in my opinion a modern size 10 would fit this best (but check measurements to be sure!)
On the jacket (open cardigan style, no fasteners) :
Bust: about 40", meant to be worn open. The lace on both the jacket and dress has a little stretchiness and can accommodate curves, in fact this would look much better on someone curvy than on my too-thin mannequin!

Condition: New with tags, no rips, spots, stains or other damages that I can see; I will go over the dress and jacket very carefully before shipping just to make doubly sure there are no loose threads anywhere. Gorgeous and a very rare quality ensemble!

Please make sure this will suit you as to measurements and style before you purchase; I don't do alterations or accept returns.....Also, please be sure to read my shop policies/shipping info in full before you purchase (click on "policies" on my main shop page).
