Product description

A beautiful, handmade 1960's or 1970's, Empire Line wedding dress.

The front and back part of the bodice are made of lace, with an underlay of opaque white material.

This dress is a beautiful, full length dress with lace detailing around the cuffs and a pretty floral lace around the hemline and a long train.

Very small, delicate gold button have been added for decoration only the lace of both of the cuffs and at the back of the neck.

There are some extremely small marks on the dress, which are almost unnoticeable and do not detract from the beauty of the dress. Please see photos.
