    I am having a hard time finding a dress that is similar! @[email protected]
    I guess it is just not that popular?
    Huge Angel sleeves
    Fancier looking lace (not chunky crochet lace or cheap one)
    Long
    Flowing

    Help?

    Jenny, the dress is heavily influenced by Edwardian white cotton styles, but the sleeves as you've pointed out are more '70s. These are not particularly common styles - if you like the look of it you'll probably find it easier to find Edwardian originals.

    I feel like people are very confused between victorian and edwardian style when i was looking through search. lol I checked Edwardian dress and I just love Edwardian's (early 1900s) Lace patterns! Now it is super rare to find this style lace in modern time. Sadly, like you said, the sleeves is more of 70s and it is not common to be found with an Edwardian dress. But I want that sleeves! :USING:

    Your other alternative would be to find the table cloths and get a dress made. Then you can have the most extravagant sleeves you like! But you need to find a good dressmaker, preferably someone recommended to you and who you can visit for fittings.

    I don't know if you are still looking, but I found this pattern for a tablecloth dress in one of my sewing books from the 70's. Thought of this thread immediately :)
    The pattern is very basic, but it might be helpful as a starting point. Good luck!

    Try looking at Anna Campbell's designs. Vintage inspired, they are really beautiful

    I feel you! I've been looking as well. I haven't found anything yet, except this amazing designer dress that is probably 20k. :D 12687923_10153268039596962_8717319633790490026_n.jpg

    Try Silver Moon in Chicago. They specialize in vintage wedding gowns. One of the largest, if not the largest, in the country.

    I found this a couple months back at an estate sale. I can take better pictures if you are interested. It is very pretty.

    The Vintage Fashion Guild has a member who specializes in bridal gowns...most are 1960s and before, but you might want to contact her to see if she carries younger vintage gowns, too, possibly. Her online shop is Cherished Vintage Bridal Salon.
