Vintage 50's Gordon Gowns, size 10 Ivory Bridal Dress

WAS £200.00 £170.00

Product description

We absolutely love this vintage Gordon Gowns Bridal Dress from the 1950's.

This beautiful vintage wedding gown is made from an embroidered lace.

It has a Mandarin style collar that hooks at the throat, there's a metal zipper that goes mid back to below the waist, sheer sleeves and is lined in taffeta.

The dress has a fitted midriff trimmed with large pearls and iridescent white sequins. There are tucks for the bust along the top edge of the wide midriff panel.

The lace skirt opens in the center front, it has folded back, scalloped edges that widen toward the bottom and is trimmed with pearls and sequins.

The centre front skirt has a gathered tulle panel where the lace opens.

There's a stiff crinoline lining under the taffeta skirt lining which has a few pinholes, please see the third photograph.

It measures 35.5" inches around the bust, across the back shoulder is 14.5", midriff is 28", waist is 24" and is 57" inches long. All measurements are approximate. The dress is unsized but we would suggest it would fit a Size 10 well.

There is a certain degree of discolouration due to the age of the piece and it would benefit from a professional clean, we have reflected this in the price.

A great opportunity to purchase a genuine and beautiful vintage wedding dress.
