Above my take on the lovely 1954 dress. I used ivory Alencon lace with a bridal weight satin in ivory as the under fabric. The dress is fully lined with a built in petticoat. The bodice features a sweetheart neckline front with boning and bra cups and a lace overlay with a boat neckline. Lace is lined with a light weight netting to support the lace and keep the edges smooth. double straps in back. Invisible zipper up the back and matching covered belt. The skirt is a full circle with seams at the sides and center back. I used two vintage patterns for the dress, one for the under bodice and one for the lace overlay.
