Twenties Wedding Dress from Lindsay Fleming - Clara

Perfect for any girl wanting to ''charleston' or 'bunny hop', Clara is made from sandwashed silk crepe, with a deep band of pale gold embroidery embellished with AB crystals around a dropped waist. The AB crystals are also around the neckline, shoulder straps and down back. However the most stunning part of the design is the 'handkerchief' skirt made from 20mtrs of pure silk tulle, which gives the dress an uneven hemline reminiscent of the 'roaring twenties', which floats elegantly as you walk.

As with all Lindsay Fleming designs, Clara can be changed to suit your own taste. For example many clients have preferred to have their dress made with silver or coloured embroidery.

They’re worked from the toe up, so simply stop knitting and add some ribbing when they’re the length you want. Then, to keep these thigh-highs from falling down, wear them with garters (sexy!). When asked if this stitch had a name, I had to think for a moment, and realized that this was a pattern that I’d use to make windowpane vests for my Barbie doll in the late ’60s. Since I don’t recall seeing it in any stitch dictionaries, it may very well be the product of a seven-year-old mind. In any event, when stretched over a shapely leg, it becomes an attractive openwork stocking pattern. Baile pattern by Heather Dixon. Seamless, top-down skirt with lace ruffles.
