Exquisite original 60s Wedding Evening Cocktail dress
Beautiful bespoke dress, a real show stopper!
Constructed in a high quality satin with Guipure lace overlay in light coffee colour.
Elegant fitted boned corset under bodice with lace overlay in crossover style.
Gathered fitted waist band around the dress.
Dress is an elegant hourglass shift, slightly nipped in at the fitted waist
The lace overlay has been sewn by hand over the bodice by the cleavage to fit the original owner. The stitching is a little crude but I have left it so as you will want it to be adjusted to your shape.
It fastens with a matching "AERO" branded metal zip along the centre back
This dress could be lengthened it has a 9 cm hem
Kick pleat at back with modesty underneath which also has the 9 cm hem.
There is 6 inches of material in back skirt seam which could be used to widen.
This dress is more than 50 years old with that in mind I have looked carefully over this dress and it looks to be in very good condition for age.
One hook missing around waist band
It has a label which states C28 1676 6/10/62 5 c28
6/10/62 I presume is the date
It appears to be handmade and hand finished.
The hem has been loosely stitched.
This dress is too small for a uk size 14.
I suggests it will fit a modern UK Size 10- possibly 12... Please check the measurements below!
