Vintage 1920s Summer Cotton Lawn Dress

A gorgeously simple 1920s lawn dress!  The semi-sheer white batiste hangs beautifully.  Faggoting (open latticed cut-work) runs down the front and the back.  Ruching on the cap sleeves.  Light gathering on the side of the hips.   This dress slips on over the head; there are no openings.  Such a lovely dress for a lawn party!

NOTE: this lovely dress will require your favorite vintage slip.
