Product description

Vintage late 1960's Handmade Bespoke Size 6-8 Victoriana Style Finest Swiss Lawn Cotton Bridesmaid Dress

This lovely light blue dress is Victorian high collar design for a bridesmaid. The dress is individually designed and sewn by hand in the late 60's. It is truly only one special dress for an unforgettable day!

This dress comes with a note from the kind lady who donated it - to describe how and when it was made. Apparently it was worn for a wedding on 28 June 1969, in Folkestone, Kent.

The fabric is stripe-patterned and made from finest Swiss lawn cotton. The simple frills are decorated on the stand collar, upper arms, upper waist, the edge of sleeves, and the empire line, and they make your look elegant. Features puff sleeves contrasted with feminine fitted lower sleeve to make your arm look elegant. Classic style self-fabric buttons are lined on its back and cuffs. The girlish ribbon bow on the centre back makes this simple dress all the more beautiful.

This dress is in good condition, although it has some small stains on the middle part of front skirt and hem that are shown in the last photographs. The damage would not be very noticeable when worn and might be removed by dry cleaning. The cost of the dry cleaning has been taken into account when pricing.

The Victoriana style of this dress would suit a lady who loves a vintage look. There is only one dress of this special design in the world!
