    I am pretty sure its late 40's early 50's Small shoulder pads Lace bottom, sleeves, and across the top. But the area next to the lace is cut leaves that the lace is stitched to. I did a couple black and white photos.

    I thought crewel work was a type of embroidery? Please enlighten me if it isn't! Nice dress and you did a good job of showing the details in the close-ups!

    That looks like cutwork over lace - and it does show up very nicely.
