    NWT 60\'s Saks dress - what is this lace called? And other questions :)

    The lace is just one of my questions about this beauty ~

    And the underpinnings - boned... corset? Boned corset-style lining?

    It also has 4 layers of underskirts - it's really something!

    TIA for your help - and if you know me at all, you'll know that I'd be eternally grateful for any title suggestions :)

    I am not a lace expert, so I will give you a temporary semi-educated guess at either Carrickmacross, or Maltese, and then someone who knows will come along. I know what its not, but not sure what it is...

    Open weave, resembles handwork lace.

    Thanks Jonathan & Queenie!

    Is the boned bodice lining nothing more than just that? I have a knack for making the simplest things difficult :)

    You could probably get away with calling that a bustier foundation underbodice.

  6. I would use bustier and corset top, both of which get many hits. Also lace. Also Saks. Oh my, you have lots of key words.<p>That dress is just beautiful and with the pink sash, it will fit right into May's Tickled Pink VTA theme!<p>I agree. I think it's 60s.:)

    I think that would be a gorgeous wedding dress for a casual spring or summer outdoor wedding.
