@Gizmo19: Etsy, ebay, and every thrift store you see. Wink  Seriously, and not very much help, but that’s where I would look first.  And be prepared to hit “next” for a loooong time because etsy, in particular, seems to be chock full of lace dresses.  Trust me, I’ve seen almost all of them!

Also don’t forget the vintage dresses thread here, always something interesting!

Wow, that is one gorgeous dress!

You could possibly try creating an alchemy on Etsy (though make sure you check the seller’s other clothing before you accept any offers), or going to a seamstress for a custom-made one. Unfortunately none of the photos really show the dress clearly.

But yes, what a beautiful dress! Now I’m kind of in love as well. 🙂

Ooh, wait, I read the comments on the photo page! The lady in the photo was so helpful–as lovely as she looks!

“As for the wardrobe… so much fun!! I purchased my pokadot dress and shoes from Anthropology earlier in the year – best place to pull off the vintage look!! My hairpiece actually fell off my favorite pairs of shoes which I then turned into a barrette. 🙂 My hats and John’s newsboy cap came from Belk. My lace dress was actually something that I borrowed from one of my best friends she also purchased it from Belk.”

So there you go!

like someone else said, the Etsy Alchemy section is really great.  just post a pic of the dress with your measurements and how much you want to pay and if it’s realistic you’ll get lots of offers to make it.
