It’s a beautiful dress and I’d keep it but I already used it for one shoot and it’s to small in the bust.Plus I’m not one of those that can keep something pretty like that in pristine condition if I keep wearing it,so I figured I’d pass it along to another gal that can appreciate this lovely dress.
You can find the pic’s and info on my ebay bidding starts at 1.00 http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZuglyartdollsQQhtZ-1
There are allot of pic’s please give them time to load. 🙂
Dress is a size 34 bust,30 empire waist,52 hips and the front is 56 inches and the back with the train is 71 inches long.
Please make note the dress doesn’t have pink tones ect that is from the lighting gels in the photos from the photoshoot.You can see in the pic where I’m not wearing the dress it IS white.
This is a absolutely gorgeous hand made vintage wedding dress.
I’m a alt model and I only wore it once for a photo shoot.I had to let out the arm seams because I was a little too “busty” for the dress.But I have since not only fixed that but refurbished the whole dress as sewing is a hobby of mine too.
It’s the bodice and skirt of the dress are fully lined.The dress is made from a fine gauzy cotton.With flowered thick cotton lace trim at various parts of the dress.It even has the lace trim on the sort of blouson sleeve cuffs which snap closed.
One of the best features of this dress is not just the huge ruffle at the bottom of the hem or all the lace trip,the sleeves are also very cool.They are sort of split down the middle so when you bend say your elbow a peek of flesh comes out.The sleeves are also unlined giving it a very feminine look.
The other cool part about this dress is the way it closes in the back with Chiffon ties.It really gives the dress something special.
I couldn’t find any holes or stains on the dress or anything like that.
Disclaimer the item IS vintage from the 60’s so there could be a pulled thread or something like that I missed.But Like I said I redid any of the loose seams on the dress,washed and ironed it by hand.And this is also a HAND MADE vintage dress.So the seams won’t be say surged ect.
