I can even see it worn as a wedding dress! (Imagine a pretty colored silk ribbon laced through the neckline and repeated as a ribbon in the bouquet).
The bodice is hand crocheted with a fine cotton thread, and butterfly motifs are centered in the front and the back. So I think a bustline of no more than 36 might be a good fit. The body of the dress is a soft cotton that has some pleats on the sides, giving it that flapper look and adding width and drape to the garment. The hemline is finished with a wide pointed lace crochet trim. I think the dress could be easily tailored to be shorter, by adding some horizontal pin pleats near the hem, or by removing the lace, trimming the length and then re-attaching the lace.
This is a one of a kind dress! The backstory: This came from at an antique store in the old South. I never wore it but I carefully saved it for my daughter's trousseau.
But ironically, her honeymoon was a camping trip to Colorado. Maybe this dress will fit your dreamy occasion (one that will not include rugged outdoor wear or hiking boots)!
