A stunning wedding dress dating from 1940s. 
A super dress in wonderful fabric - a smooth figured brocade with pretty scroll flowers. 

A lovely genuine 1940s wedding dress with a V shaped collar and peplam waist.  The dress is ankle length with long fitted sleeves.  Such a pretty dress. 

The dress has a round neckline and an over collar in a V shape which sits over the shoulders.  The dress is fitted to the waist and has a peplam V shaped panel over the waistline.  The dress flares from the waist giving a full soft floaty skirt. 

The dress fastens at the back with two metal zipper fasteners - one at the neck down to the collar and one at the back down to the waist.

The dress is not lined and there is no makers label - so possibly made to order or home made. 

SIZE small  - PLEASE CHECK THESE MEASUREMENTS.  I would guess a size 10 UK size ( size 8 USA) may fit a slender size 12 .  The  bust measures 34 inches.  From armpit to armpit is 17 inches.  Waist size 28 inches.  Shoulder to shoulder is 15 inches.  Length from nape of neck to hem 55 inches.

Condition -  In very good condition - no marks or stain under the arms - no rips or tears in the fabric and no obvious damage.  There are a few minor marks on the hem where it has trailed on the floor but I am sure these will come out with cleaning.  

A fabulous costume for a vintage fashion event - or a great display piece.  A stunning wedding dress for any slender bride.  

Please see photos and email any questions - I am happy to help.

I am always happy to combine postage and reduce your costs for multiple purchases. Postage in the UK £5.50 may take up to six working days after posting for your item to arrive.  I would recommend special delivery to ensure your dress arrives quickly and is covered by full insurance.  This costs slightly more but for an outfit of this quality is a better way of delivery. 
Postage to Europe £20 - this item is very heavy due to the quality of the fabric.  
USA, Australia and rest of world postage costs £28 including tracking and insurance.  Sorry I cannot send this item by untracked delivery. 
 I have negotiated a good deal with a courier firm and can provide cheaper shipping to Europe - please email for details. If you buy several items it is possible to send at one combined rate to some countries.
