£80.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This pretty, vintage1980’s wedding dress is in a style reminiscent of the gown worn by Princess Diana. Cut from fine white slub satin-type acetate, it has a fitted bodice and full, gathered skirt. Both front and back of the bodice are shaped with lace edged princess seams and have central panels covered with beautiful floral lace which finish in a V-shape below waist level. The deep V neckline is trimmed with a centrally stitched 2.5” lace edged ruffle and the elbow length puffed sleeves are lightly quilted and gathered into a 1.5” lace edged frill. The sleeves are padded and lined to keep their shape. The classic, flared full length skirt has a beautiful drape with a lining and stiff layer of tiered net inside to hold the skirt out and make your movements very elegant. At the back the skirt extends into a chapel train, part of which is covered with floral lace to match the bodice and a large satin bow is placed just above the lace panel. Inch wide lace trims the skirt hem and around the train and the gown is fastened at the back with a long, invisible zip and hook and eye. There are some small brown stains inside the bodice lining, mainly around the arm holes and another stain on the front of the skirt, to the left of the V, concealed by the folds. The lace edge of the hem is also stained in places and there is another stain low on the train lace panel. Other than this the dress is in a very good condition and can be dry cleaned. The gown also has it's own cover and was made in Great Britain.
