Pink Princess Dress ~ Vintage Tulle

 Vintage Pink Princess Dress

Vintage tulle dresses.....  one of my favorite things in the whole world.  
I absolutely love them!
I have a large collection of vintage 40's and 50's prom dresses.  All in pastel colors.  They remind me of cotton candy and sherbet ice cream.
These dresses are soooooo beautiful.  Most are hand made and one of a kind.  Frilly works of art.
This one is especially pretty.... with layers and layers of tulle ruffles, bunches of white millinery flowers and of course.....  it's Pink!
I love it and hope you do, too!

Have a lovely day!

These dresses are beautiful! I would have to say, hand made dress making is a lost art. So glad someone is doing it! This post would be great for my "let's Talk Vintage!" link party... in my second to last post if you have a free moment! :)
(If not, I post it every Tuesday at 9 am)

Only time I ever had a dress remotely similar to this was in my dreams. Never had anything this fancy.

Just beautiful, Elizabeth! Love the dreamy layers and layers of tulle ruffles! Makes me smile!

Elizabeth, This beautiful pink dress has reminded me of two bridesmaids dresses my mother had which my sisters and I wore for playing dress up. I'm sure she must have worn them in the early 50s before she was married in '56. Oh, I wonder what ever happened to them? I thought I was a princess when it was my turn for one of them! Thank you for the memory! Linda

Oh, this dress is just wonderful! The frills, the color, those terrific millinery flowers - perfect! I've always thought vintage prom dresses would make the most wonderful filtered light window coverings. Then the more practical side of me says that the sun would ruin the delicate fabrics so I don't purchase them. I'm glad you shared!
Have a lovely weekend,

Oh what a lovely dress. How perfect, indeed, for a princess dress. Or a princess tea party (can you tell I'm enjoying both Pink Saturday AND the Mad Tea Party 2015 ;) )

Have a lovely week,
