From the last Costume Museum of Canada event that Shirley and I helped with, I have another dress to show you. It is from 1912 and is covered in lovely lace!
The lace makes this simple dress quite pretty! I wish I could make lace like this!
For some odd reason, the under dress is the original with the big red flowers and all. I guess they were meant to peek through, giving just hints of color. I don’t care for that detail myself. It kind of looks like a mistake and it takes away from the lace.
I like the little dingle balls. I’ve seen some cars, back in the day, done with these….
