CREAM COLORED SILK WITH FRONT APRON OVERLAY. LOTS OF FINE DETAILS AND EMBELLISHMENTS INCLUDING PEARLS, LACE, and INCREDIBLE BEADED EMBELLISHMENTS THROUGHOUT. HOOK & EYE ALL DOWN THE BACK. A SQUARED TRAIN THAT DRAPES DOWN THE CENTER BACK OVER THE SKIRT.Fully functional hook & eye closures, it was just a little too snug on the upper back and I did not want to force, pictured here on my modern size 2 dress form and seemed to fit well with the exception of the upper back. DRESS MEASUREMENTS: 30-32 BUST (MEASURED FLAT) 24 WAIST, 1/2 SLEEVES, BODICE LENGTH 14, SKIRT LENGTH 39, TOTAL LENGTH IN FRONT 53, IN BACK 70. TRAIN SIZE 60 LONG x 48 WIDE.
CONDITION: ANTIQUE CONDITION WITH NOTABLE ISSUES: Silk fabric has become thin and delicate, but is in relatively good condition for its age. There are some small holes/pinholes/faint spots and some small hand stitched repairs, (the most predominant is a 1hand stitched repair center bust area) most likely from the pull on the fabric from the heavy weight of the glass beads over the years (it is best not to hang a gown like this, it is rather heavy from all of the beading). Im not sure whether some of the black beads have faded, or whether there was a use of clear and black in some areas (refer to photos). A few isolated loose or missing beads. A couple of areas of missing or shortened fringe.
Hook and eye closures down the back. A truly gorgeous example of Wedding couture, perfect for a collection, study, pattern making, display, or theater. Refer to last photo for up close notables. Some slight storage smell-needs airing (Refer to last photo for up close notable issue details) For any attempt at cleaning: PROPER HEIRLOOM DRY CLEANING IS RECOMMENDED.Additional photos available upon request. We are honored to be the new owners of this rare and exquisite collectionReflecting the love and passion of a fellow a vintage lover, that took nearly 50 years for her to amass her collection... Which includes over 200 dresses, capes, purses, shoes, childrens, toddler/baby and menswear. Please understand that vintage clothing and vintage fabric have age to it, and even when in excellent condition, they show wear. They are not new items. Even the most cared for vintage items of clothing is likely to have some wear and tear and vintage pieces can commonly have tiny spots/marks, fading/yellowing, or pin holes. I attempt to present all damage by describing and photographing it but sometimes little things get by me. Items are sourced from local estate auctions, and business liquidations. Items will have some wear as to be expected with used goods. Please read the description and look at pictures carefully as all items will be as described.
Measurements are taken to the best of our ability, but there may be a 5-10% variation. Please remember that colors photograph and can display differently depending on the camera and/or the computer.

Some are new, but most are pre-owned or vintage, so I have no way of knowing the complete history, or if the item has always been stored in a smoke or pet free environment (my home is smoke free, and pet friendly). But mistakes do happen from time to time.
(However, all items MUST be combined on ONE invoice). If you have any questions, please contact my PRIOR to placing your order. (Feel free to contact me should you have any questions).
Thank you for your interest! It is my promise to you that I will work very hard to resolve any problem that may have occurred.
