Product description

Francia Vintage Size 6-8 Flower Print Full Length Long Sleeved Wedding Gown

Francia is an American bridal brand that was established in the mid-1940's and is still loved over generations. We think this piece is from the 1970's due to the maxi length and the styling of the collar.

This beautiful cream silk crepe chiffon outshell has big elegant brown flower prints, and the eye-catching sparkling charm on the centre waist enhances gorgeousness. The bride looks more feminine and stylish with the see through sleeves and decollete zone. The collar is fashionable; it stands on the front but it has a keyhole detail at the nape. The dress fastens with a zip and a hook at the centre back. This fabulous dress would suit a lady who is looking for a simple but stylish vintage outfit. It would also be suitable for formal occasions after your special day.

The dress is mostly in a good condition, although some stains are seen, the right side part of the front skirt hem is frayed, and two holes on the back bottom part of the skirt, as you can see on the last photograph. However, this damage would not be very noticeable. The marks may be removed by dry cleaning, and it would not be difficult to mend the fray and the holes - for example this could be taken to a tailor who could re-hem the garment to a shorter length. This would mean losing 4.5" from the overall length of the dress.
The cost of the dry cleaning and the repair have been taken into account when pricing.

Despite the damage, this is a unique 1970's silk crepe piece which no other bride will have. With a little loving care to restore it to its former glory, it sure to receive many compliments on your special day.
