Handmade Vintage 1970s Medieval Renaissance Wedding Gown/ Kaftan Handmade - Size: 12 - Cream / ivory

£38.00

Product description

A beautifully handmade vintage Medieval, Renaissance style wedding dress from around the 1970s.

Many layers of beautifully draping cloth with flowing panels and a short train make this the dream of a dress.
The giant bell sleeves give a Medieval or Renaissance silhouette.
The semi-fitted bodice is square necked at the front and v-necked at the back fastened with a zip and a pair of beautifully handsewn rouleau loops.
The elegant katfan type skirt is multi layered and bell shaped with princess lines making it drape like a dream.

As it is handmade there is no size label It looks like a size 12, but measurements are as follows:

90 cm around the bust
86 cm around the waist
63 cm over arm sleeve length
97 cm under arm sleeve length (!)
130 cm around cuff
115 cm from neck to front hem
130 cm from shoulder to front hem


As there is no label I am not sure of the fabric, but it feels like drapy polyester taffeta.

There are a few small marks on the underside of the sleeve, which I have shown in the final picture.

This gorgeous dress is one of a kind that would make any bride look and feel amazing.
