Item v5220 ... Price: $345 SOLD
An exquisite 1950's wedding dress in ivory tulle and lace. Gathered, cap sleeved bodice with basque waist and FABULOUS lace trimmed stand-up collar. Dress has a full skirt with four scalloped panels of lace and two insets of accordion pleats (shown here with an additional crinoline... not included). Dress is fully lined. Side metal zipper. Bodice is boned. To see a close up of the bodice, please click here. To see the rear of this dress, please click here.
Size: (need help with your measurements? click here)
35" bust, 25" waist, full hips. Approximately 58 1/2" from underarm to hem.
Condition: In good condition. Freshly cleaned. A hint of yellow remains at the underarms. The hook at the top of the zipper had oxidized (it has now been replaced) and left a tiny orange spot on the lining (not visible outside). Two yellow pin spots and one very small, faint blue mark on one panel of lace. A broken thread in the tulle on the rear bodice. There is a section of tulle missing at the hem of one of the pleated insets (this sounds bad, but I looked at this dress half a dozen times and didn't notice until I put the dress on the table and fully spread out the skirt).
