Designed in the 60's, this extremely formal vintage wedding gown is done in a poly chiffon over a crepe lining with a large net petticoat. The bodice features a semi-scooped neck line and a full-scooped back. Long sleeves have been cut asymmetrically at the cuff so that the point of the cuff adorns the top of the hand and also feature 6 self covered buttons that would fall at the inside of the wrist. The bodice is adorned with a lace applique, which is encrusted with tiny ivory seed pearls. The applique© follows down over the natural waist and flows freely to the mid skirt. The full skirt has a very dramatic bustle (lined in both tulle and acetate), which frames the full train. A simple poly-chiffon rosette sits at the crest of the bustle. This gown fastens in the back with concealed metal zipper and hook n'eye enclosure. There is a bit of staining on the train and on the front of the skirt. There is also a bit of discoloration at the waist line. A professional dry cleaner can remedy these minor issues. Part of the netting of the petticoat has come loose and needs a few stitches.

Vintage garments should always be worn with care and consideration of their age. Please note that some garments may show signs of general wear.
Vintage garments were often tailored to fit an individual woman and evidence of seams and darts being taken in or out is not uncommon. For this reason, it is often possible to have a vintage garment altered to achieve a customized fit.
We will be happy to answer any questions about available seam allowances, darts, and hem allowances, along with recommendations on alterations before you purchase.
