♥ DESCRIPTION: A stunning ONE OF A KIND, very rare indeed, true vintage, luxurious and incredibly opulent, rich proper red, real velvet wedding dress/evening gown/ballgown in brilliant condition and with the most beautiful & unusual styling & also features matching red velvet hand muff & hair piece.
The dress features a deep and very flattering v-neckline framed in two frills of the red velvet, which create a cross-over effect in the centre, with the frill from the right continuing down to the waist seam ~ beautifully shaped over the bust for enhanced fit & shape ~ seam at the waist creating a very 'nipped in' shape and with a red velvet narrow waist belt, with matching red velvet buckle, threaded through belt loops ~ concealed side zip ~ and the most wonderful gorgeous long full and flowing skirt, with swathes of fabric, which drapes down into loose pleats, with small triangular inserts at the sides, close to the bottom hem, to create an even fuller skirt at hem ~ the sweep of this dress is beyond fabulous ~ & with full length sleeves which fall into a point over the top of the hand, with a small popper fastening on the underside. ~ The back is just stunning also ~ beautifully shaped bodice shaped to the waist & enhanced by the matching belt ~ & then the beautiful, long, flowing incredibly opulent rich red velvet skirt. ~
The headpiece is just such a beautiful addition, again included in this sale ~ again in the red velvet and slightly stiffened inside to maintain shape ~ in a semi-circular shape, so it fits either over the hair, if you wear your hair down, like a hair band, or under, if you wear your hair up, whichever way you choose, it's beautiful, ~ with a scalloped top edge ~ & two red velvet narrow ties at the ends ~ can be tied, or secured with hair grips if needed.
This dress is just ABSOLUTELY beyond amazing ~ you will not believe how beautiful it is until you actually see it ~ so incredibly rare to find and a real ensemble to treasure FOREVER! ~ This dress with the muff and headpiece is stunning and luxuriously opulent ...breathtakingly beautiful...
The dress is delightfully detailed to create an 18c/19c/Victorian/Edwardian influenced evening gown, or riding/equestrian habit ~ and the mix of the rich blood red and the swathes of velvet, which catches the light so beautifully, and the very fitted bodice, give it a sensual and very sexy undercurrent ~ it also has a real sense of the Medieval, the richness of the Tudors, the Pre-Raphaelites, and you can certainly imagine worn in the court of King Arthur's for a castle banquet or on horseback......
True vintage late 30s early 40s creation, beautifully tailored for a bridesmaid at a wedding ~ and yet in our opinion it fits in with a number of styles and eras and is almost timeless in its appeal being just so unbelievably beautiful ~ and beauty never ages!!!
Would be just sensational as a wedding or bridesmaid's dress for a themed wedding, beautiful enough to be worn as a wedding dress for the bride herself ~ or as an evening gown/ballgown, or just when you want to add a touch of period elegance & style to a special event...Gorgeous!!!
Excellent vintage condition ~ lovely quality fabrics ~ Dress, hairpiece & hand muff are all created from a very good quality velvet, soft and sumptuous and which hangs and moves beautifully ~ in a very regal & rich red ~ a real beauty! xxx
Please see measurements at the end of this listing...This dress can be easily altered to fit by a seamstress if required xxx
