White Wednesday


For White Wednesday, I decided to share a few photos of one of my favorites in my personal collection:  a divine lacy organdy dress, circa 1920, with unbelievably beautiful pink ribbonwork flowers at the waist.  I have such a vision of what its owner might have worn it for.  I think it would have been the hit of any garden party.  What do you think?

The detailing of the embroidery work and the lace is simply stunning.  This vintage dress form is in her glory with this beauty adorning her. 

Please check out Kathleen's blog for more White Wednesday participants.

Until next time,

  6. Yes, I bet that beautiful dress was worn to a garden party. And the wearer must have been the center of attention in it too! How incredibly beautiful it is. Wouldn't you love to wear it, just once?!
    Happy White Wednesday!
