Made from an off-white silk with an embroidery of ecru silk thread brocade, this 1950's wiggle vintage wedding dress (think Mad Men) is simply charming. The bodice features a square neckline with tiny rhinestone embellishments that carry through to the back of the neck. The simple capped sleeves offer just the right amount of coverage. We have paired the dress with a simple silk ribbon sash (not included) just to show the versatility of this amazing piece, but without the sash the dress is a sheath. The dress is partially lined in cotton and fastens on the side with a concealed metal zipper. The bottom back of the dress features a small pleat for ease of movement and there is also a 2" hemline for alterations. There is a tiny tear at the top fold of the hemline in the front of the dress and one at the left seam of arm-hole under the arm and another at the right bottom edge of the sleeve, all three of which can be easily repaired. There is some slight discoloration, which can be restored by a professional dry cleaner .

The skirt falls from the natural waist, which we have adorned with a chiffon sash (not included) to show off the waistline. A concealed metal zipper encloses the dress on the left side.

Designed in the 50's, this unbelievable vintage wedding gown is done in a lace appliqued and embroidered net over an acetate lining in the bodice and two layers of lace embroidered tulle over an acetate lining in the skirt. The bodice features an appliqued scalloped v-cut neckline done in sheer net, high back and capped sleeves. The entire bodice is embroidered in lace and encrusted in clear sequins. The acetate lining can be seen through the sheer net of the bodice and offers a scooped neckline, thin spaghetti straps and high straight back. The full, three layered skirt is done in a layer of lace embroidered tulle over an additional layer of tulle and is lined in acetate. Two panels of embroidered lace are seen at the front and back of the skirt, which falls from the Basque style waist. The skirt offers a generous self train and a concealed metal zipper encloses the gown in the back. We recommend a professional dry cleaning. There are a few inclusions in the second layer of tulle, which is not noticeable when worn and can be remedied. There are a few pinholes in the lace, which is easily remedied.
