Here is some difficult to find silk vintage Chantilly lace. This is an exquisitely delicate and unusual 12" wide Chantilly lace. Simple flowers and leaves are strewn gracefully across a loose netting background, with one gently scalloped edge. Both edges are adorned with wispy eyelash trim. Once hand-washed in cold water, this lace softens up delectably. This would perfect on the bodice of a romantic vintage-inspired wedding gown!

Laura is wearing an enchanting handmade double-tiered wedding veil. The veiling is made of silk tulle, and it is adorned with silk ribbon and vintage silk lace edging. The edging lace has a pyramid motif that is reminiscent of the Art Deco era, and is lightly embellished with glass seed beads. One veil is 21” long, and the other one is 24” long ($345).
We have paired it with a stunning, understated silk from our 1st floor. This gleaming ballet pink silk is scattered with luminous white pearls. It is $49.99/yard and 45” wide.
