Richard Lester

WW1 / Edwardian ivory silk wedding dress, circa 1914

 

DESCRIPTION

A wonderful original WW1 period ivory silk satin and chiffon wedding dress with stylish stand-up lace collar, ruched satin waistband and pretty floating chiffon panels to the skirt, edged with a fine satin band.

Like so many dresses of the period the cut is simple and incredibly feminine, the cross-over lace to the bodice front secured with tiny hooks and eyes. The superb collar is supported with three sections of fine wire woven into the lace.

The dress closes with a network of hooks and eyes and poppers to the front with a narrow petersham band to the the waist.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries. I am always happy to combine postage at cost on multiple purchases.

SIZE

Equivalent to a modern UK 6, the waist measures 24 inches maximum, from shoulder to hem is 50 inches.

CONDITION

Overall in strong condition but with holing / tearing of the silk chiffon layer across the right shoulder. Luckily a 120 x 47 inch section of the original unusued silk chiffon survives and this is included, so the the damaged area could be replaced. Otherwise very good, some overall yellowing and occassional rust spots but free of other shattering and fabric weakness.

  • UK £4.00 
  • Europe £8.50
  • Rest of the world £9.50
