Designed in the 60's, this beautiful vintage wedding gown is done in a rich cream colored peau de soie silk and lined in a silk lining in the same tone. The bodice features a slightly scooped neckline, a lovely v-cut back and 3/4 length sleeves, which are adorned with 5 self covered buttons on each sleeve. The bodice is embellished with a trailing floral lace motif accented with clusters of pearls. A self fabric bow is seen on the right side of the bodice. The back of the gown features the same lace embellishment and pearl cluster accent, but done in a V-shape midway down the back. A self fabric bow adorns the center of the v-shaped lace embellishment. This gown fastens in the back with approximately 2 dozen self covered buttons and loops. This gown looks like it may have at one time had a train, since the hooks are still attached. These hooks can be easily removed. There is a bit of staining throughout the dress, which can be easily remedied by a professional dry cleaner (recommended). The seam at the left cuff has opened a bit, and can be fixed. One of the self covered buttons on the right cuff has lost it's cover, but can easily be replaced, eliminated or fixed.
The Alencon Lace, which is a French needlepoint lace with a floral design on a sheer net background, makes this Vintage wedding dress from the 60's a knockout for sure.

The bodice features a simple jeweled neckline, which has scalloped edging and is adorned with daisy appliques from the front to the scooped back. Some of the daisy appliques in front feature tiny pearls. The empire waist includes a semi-attached (snap) satin band with a tiny self-fabric bow in front and another in the back. The dress is lined with a silk satin and an additional lining of cotton batiste. The asymmetrical hemline gives the dress a natural train and is trimmed in the same banded satin as the empire waist. The dress fastens in the back with a concealed metal zipper and hook n'eye enclosure. There are some areas of staining on the satin band of the train, which can either be professionally cleaned or easily replaced.
