Vintage Wedding Dress From 1948

This is a One Off Dressmaker Made Bespoke Wedding Dress.
Made from Japanese silk brought home by a serving airman.

The silk is very fine and hangs beautifully. There is huge yardage in the skirt but it falls in a straight.column.
The style is true to the time and would have been very fashionable then.

High peaked empire bust seam with front fastened by a row of eight self covered buttons.
Slim fitting over the bodice midriff it falls to a dropped waistline. It has a side fastening placket with press studs.
The bottom of the bodice is custom cut in peaks to echo the bust line.
The back of the garment is the same design.

The Sleeves are long and slender fitting with fastening at the lower in seam edge.

This is small, the lady who wore it was 5'2"
Underarm to underarm measured flat. 17 inches  so  approx 32" bust.
Waist measured at narrowest point 14 inches. so approx  28" waist.
Length shoulder to hem. 54 inches.

Carefully stored for a long time. Was  Dry Cleaned before storing. Quite a while ago.

It was never a bright white as far as I know. it is now a uniform creamy white.

There are a couple of small black marks on it as shown. this is tar from the road, It was such a hot wedding day that the road surface melted
