Upcycled handmade mauve color ladies' formal bridesmaids wrap dress, Great Gatsby dress

You are viewing my upcycled design from 1980s dress , this time it is not a Gatsby Dress; but, it could be the 1920-30s era dress , only without a drop waist This dress is a wrap dress that closes on the side with few buttons and from the inside as well with one button. Originally this dress was white with 1980s  puffy sleeves , that I removed . I hand dyed the dress in light brown tone color which breaks the lace and lining into two different tones , make the lace pattern to stand out , creating more definition of the pattern . I added a generous lace ruffles on the button of the dress and made this delicate cape from the same fabric ( I hand dyed this delicate shear fabric in light mauve color ).This cape is made from scratch.Then I added coffee dyed pieces of thin vintage lace on the cape creating the pretty design on the front and the bottom of the cape. The cape DOESN’T come with the dress , just in case if you dont want to combine the dress and a cape together ,but you can purchase it separately. I added some thin coffee dyed lace in the side of the dress ruffle as well; looks so fabulous ! I made this little bow pin from the same fabric and will include it with the dress at no extra charge ! you can pin it on the top of the dress, in your hair or your accessories The dress size marked 8 , but please double check your measurement just in case , since the dress sizes sometimes different on vintage pieces Convo me in case of any questions please.
