Beautiful ivory lace and silk beaded vintage antique wedding dress size
Modern UK size 8
During my time recycling antique textiles I came across some extraordinary antique dresses and accessories. Buying all the pieces I loved, I set them aside for inspiration - designing and making a range of vintage inspired wedding dresses which I now sell through wedding boutiques across the country. My studio is bursting at the seams with these treasures so I have decided to sell some of my pieces. This is one of them.
I loved this dress from the first moment I saw it in London a few years ago. It's a real treasure with its' wonderful combination of ivory lace, silk and hand beaded design. As with all vintage dresses, they're not always easy to get on and this one might benefit from enlarging the opening at the back. It's a size 8 but fits onto my size 10 mannequin.

Good vintage condition.
There are some tears in the lace which isn't unusual with a dress of this age (see photos). The flower pattern is on a tulle background and this tulle is the part that has been damaged in places, mainly on one sleeve. It would be a relatively easy fix - for an invisible and strong mend I would hand sew a new tulle lining under the damaged parts. This dress would benefit from a good clean. I tend to gently hand wash but it could be dry cleaned.
Please take a moment to read my terms and conditions before purchasing. I am always happy to combine postage - you can either use the basket function if you have it which will calculate the discount or contact me.
Thanks for looking!
