1940 Embroidered Voile Vintage Wedding Gown

$288.00

Designed in the 40's, this magnificent vintage wedding gown is done in a creamy white sheer lace embroidered cotton voile. This gown is sheer and we have paired it with a slip (not included) to show how it can be worn. The bodice features a jeweled neckline, high back and long sheer sleeves with point cut cuffs which enclose with a self covered button. The long skirt, which offers a self train, falls from the Basque style waist and finishes at the floor with an organdy ruffled hemline. The back of the skirt offers a semi apron effect with two asymmetrical bands of organdy ruffle, which begin at the base of the back and finish at the sides. 32 self covered buttons enclose this gown in the back. We recommend replacing the self covered buttons with pearlized buttons, as they are smudged and discolored. There a few makeup smudges on the bodice, which should be addressed by a professional dry cleaning. A few pinholes throughout the voile cannot be seen when worn

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to know about sizing?

Because great care is taken to provide accurate measurements on each item, returns due to poor fit are not eligible.

To ensure your garment is well suited for your figure, please double-check as you compare the sizes in the descriptions of the garment to your own sizes. It is best to leave a bit of room for comfort and ease of movement, so please allow for some wiggle room when taking your own measurements. Measurements should be taken with a dressmaker’s tape measure. Please measure yourself over the undergarments you plan to wear.

If you are unsure and have a question about the size of a garment or how to measure yourself, please contact us and we will gladly assist you.

What is your Return/Exchange Policy?

RETURNS & EXCHANGES

PLEASE SELECT CAREFULLY AS ALL SALES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL
Though all sales are considered final, returns/exchanges are reviewed on a case by case basis and honored ONLY if there was a gross misrepresentation in the description of the garment. If something isn’t right with your order, please CONTACT US within 24 hours of receipt (USPS delivery time) for assistance and we will do our best to fix it for you.

Specific flaws, if any, are noted in the description of each garment. Please read descriptions carefully and feel free to ask questions regarding flaws. We are not responsible for the remedy of any specific flaws noted.

Returns will not be considered due to poor fit.

What should I know about buying vintage?

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.

Are all of your dresses really authentic vintage?

Yes! We pride ourselves on the quality of the vintage we curate, so you will know that each and every piece we carry in our online store and boutique, are truly authentic wearable vintage. It is important to note that some may show signs of general wear.
