Vintage size S cream wedding dress

£100.00

Product description

A charming Victorian inspired wedding dress, unbranded, probably 1970s.

This lovely dress is simple in shape, with a stand-up collar edged in ruffles, and on decorating a curving band of ruffles across the bust extending out to the shoulders, and curving down again on the back. Adding to the turn-of-the-century look, the dress has long sleeves which are pulled in tightly at the wrists with wide cuffs, fastened with three pearl-shaped buttons. Unfortunately the pearl effect finish has worn away, so the buttons may need replacing. The dress is fitted at the waist with a wide waistband, and the skirt has subtle gathers which gives the dress some softness and movement, and the hem is finished with a band of gathered chiffon, as on the bodice. The dress fastens with a concealed zip down the centre back.

It is made from chiffon embroidered with a delicate flower pattern, white on white for a subtle effect, and is fully lined with a stiff white polyester, which gives some structure to the skirt and the short train.

This is a feminine and elegant dress in a classical style, reminiscent of the Belle Epoque - perfect for a Vintage loving bride, or it could be easily updated for a more contemporary twist.

Approximately UK size 10, please see measurements.

Measures 34" bust, 30" waist, 44" across hips, 18" inside sleeve, 59" length from shoulder to hem, with approx. 18" train measured from front hem length.
Full length down the back measured from nape to train hem is 75"

Please note there is some dust/marks along the hem, which should come out with gentle cleaning.
