Pretty 1970s vintage wedding dress - size 8

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This lovely little cream or ivory long-sleeved A-line wedding dress is around a modern size 8 or 10. It has been photographed on a mannequin that measures 33" round the fullest part of the bust, 25" round the waist and 12" round the neck. It is very tight on that mannequin (which thankfully doesn't need to breathe!) so if you are bigger than 31-32" bust 23-24" waist with a slim neck it probably won't fit you.

The high neck, waist and cuffs are trimmed with what feels like cotton lace. The main fabric is some sort of synthetic, possibly polyester, and the care label says dry clean only. The cuffs of the gathered sleeves (the only part of the dress which isn't lined) each fasten with four pearl-effect buttons and double loops. In addition to the 22" zip at the back there is a hook and loop fastening at the neck and at the waist.

There is a short train measuring 60" from the mid-point of the waist trim lace, corresponding length at front is about 43½". Back waist length (nape to that same mid-point) is 15". Shoulder width (flat on a hanger) is about 13½". Sleeve length 22" plus 2" cuffs will fit wrist up to about 8" circumference.

This dress is in lovely clean condition, just crying out for the right bride to wear it.
