1950's Lavender and lace wedding dress

When I think of a fairy tale wedding, this dress comes to mind.  Imagine this 1950's handmade lace gown floating across a dance floor at an enchanted garden evening wedding.  It's very "fairy princess" to me, but could easily fit into many wedding styles and themes.  It has a lace top that has a side seam zipper and a full and puffy floor length skirt.  The top layer of material has a linen-like quality to it and is a slightly gray/off-white color.  It's gathered very heavily at the waist to produce some really great volume.  The dress is lined in a silky lavender fabric that gives the perfect purple hue and tiniest amount of iridescence.  So, it would be great for the nontraditional bride who doesn't want an ivory or white gown!  Check it out in the shop today!
