Vintage Vogue Special Design old white brocade wedding dress with train

£100.00

Product description

This elegant, figure hugging vintage wedding dress is from the Vogue Special Design collection, estimated to be from the 1950s but without size or fabric content labels. Please see below for actual measurements.

It is made in old white satin brocade that has an attractive pattern of what are best described as sprays of pine needles.

Front and back necklines are scooped and the dress closes with a long centre back zip and is fully lined.

The side panels of the front bodice are princess line bust shaping down to the waist where they are stitched onto the skirt. The centre panel is cut all in one with the skirt front.

Where the skirt is joined to the front side panels you have two pleats to give extra fullness.

The waistline at the back drops down to a V and both bodice and skirt have darts for a trim fit. The skirt curves out at the hemline into a 16 ins train.

The long fitted sleeves dip down to a point at the wrist and the vents close with the ever popular rouleau loops and covered buttons.

There is a tiny spot on the back of the left hand sleeve and a pale yellowy stain near the end of the train, neither stand out.

Due to the ambiguity of "standard" sizing from retailer to retailer, clothing from the Bournemouth Depot is now being measured. Please check these measurements before purchasing to ensure correct fitting. Use the "standard" sizing as a guide only.
