On the blog today, my Vintage Wedding Dress of the Week. This pretty 1930s dress is made in cotton lace with so many wonderful details.
|1930s wedding dress, Daisy, in cream cotton lace. Price £995|
I call it the Daisy Dress, as the lace is sprinkled with a charming repeat pattern of daises.
The style is a flattering bias cut – very easy and comfortable to wear. It just slips on over the head, with no zips or openings, and moves beautifully with your body.
|1930s wedding dress, with beautiful art deco ‘zigzag’ panelled skirt, £995|
The skirt is a ‘zigzag’ construction, very popular in 1930s wedding dresses. This gives it a lovely swish, and beautiful art deco seam patterns.

And with its pretty flutter sleeves – just like those on famous dancer Ginger Rogers’ dresses from the period – this is the perfect dress to take you from ‘I do’ to the dance floor.
Lace wedding dresses from the 1930s are becoming harder to find in good wearable condition, as the lace dries out and can become brittle. So I was specially pleased to source this gorgeous dress in such wonderful condition. As it’s bias cut, it’s a flexible fit from size 8 to 10. I’ve teamed it here with a lovely original 1930s satin slip, included in the price of £995.
