A beautifully made silk wedding dress, from the vintage designer Mr Gubbins.
Cream in colour, this dress bears the marks of its high quality finish throughout. The silk bodied dress features an across the shoulder gypsy style neckline, trimmed with delicate lace, small ribbon bows and dinky dot perlised beads. It has to the elbow, lace trimmed sleeves, decorated with pin tucks and lace panels, is elasticated to the waist and has a full netted skirt.
The detailing on the skirt of the dress is really beautiful, it has horizontally banded pin tucks, ribbons and intricate lace panels. This detail is finished and shown off perfectly with the body given by the netted underskirt.
If you are looking to customise a dress for your big day, incorporating quality vintage design features into your own vision, this dress would be an ideal canditate.
The dress is in worn condition but bears minimal wear and tear. It has been categorised as in good condition, because there is very faint staining to the underarms and a small amount to the lace on one of the sleeves.
