Designed in the 40's, this elaborate vintage wedding gown is done in a soft apricot toned sheer silk chiffon adorned with a swirl pattern done in silver metallic thread. We have paired this gown with a slip (not included), which we recommend. The sleeveless bodice offers a scooped neckline and plunging v-cut back. An additional layer of silk chiffon is attached on either side of the v-cut back, which work their way over the shoulders and finish as a shawl collar. The shoulder is adorned with a chiffon flower corsage and red pom-poms. This can be removed if so desired. The long skirt falls from the natural waist and offers gathering at the drop waist and finishes at the floor with a horsehair hemline and fishtail in the back. 20 Self covered buttons enclose this gown in the back. We recommend a professional dry cleaning. Some reinforcement is needed throughout and a few of the silver threads show a bit of wear. Given the age of this gown, it is in remarkable condition.
