Beautiful vintage possibly antique wedding dress
Approximate size 8/10
Relisted item This dress is difficult to date as it could range from late 20's to 40's in style. I feel its a late 30's piece due to the zip. There are som beautiful details and a very high level of craftsmanship.
The dress appears to be duchess satin. Tailored high bodice. Embellished with a trailing floral lace piece. Tapered sleeves that finish to a finger point with matching covered buttons at the wrist. Central back zip. The real uniqueness to this dress lies in the tiered skirt. The skirt again has the same floral lace. The tiers are all separate to provide a piece that looks fabulous in motion. The waist is finished with a bow.
I feel this dress could be worn as it is or have a chiffon back piece added. This could be functional for a bride who wants to have a dramatic train for the ceremony but be able to remove and dance freely and move around on her evening celebrations.
I have shown the dress styled in an edwardian way with fur, and a parasol. These items are not included but show this piece as a non bridal look. Potentially for theatrical, film or steam punk events.
As a bridal dress an arctic fox fur and diamond hair comb or sheer veil would channel different eras. The dress has a downton feel which apparently is THE look for brides this year.
