Beautiful Genuine Vintage Hand Made 1950s Short Embroidered Wedding Dress

Something Old
Vintage Bridal

Your chance to buy an absolutely stunning genuine vintage wedding gown from the 1950s. Be a truly unique bride & add to the history of this beautiful gown. 

The dress is made of an exquisite floral embroidered fabric which is used sheer in the half sleeves & upper bodice & is continued throughout the length of the dress. The neck line at the front is scalloped & at the back dips to a scalloped v-shape. The dress has the original metal zip which is fully working & moves smoothly. There 2 hook and eye fastenings to help conceal the zip and give a neat finish (1 at the top of zip & a further half way down).  The Dress is fully lined. The skirt consists of the upper embroidered layer, a netting/ tulle underskirt layer, a silk underskirt layer & a final cotton underskirt layer. All adding to the fullness of the skirt and creating the classic 1950s look.

The jewellery, ribbon, belts used in the photographs are not included in the sale
