CREAM COLORED SILK WITH LACE OVERLAY. LOTS OF FINE DETAILS AND EMBELLISHMENTS INCLUDING WIDE SATIN BAND TRIM, and LARGE LACE APPLIQUÉ DOWN THE CENTER FRONT. Pictured here on my modern size 2 dress form and it fit well. Contact me for measurements if interested. Additional photos available upon request.
CONDITION: ANTIQUE CONDITION WITH NOTABLE ISSUES: Silk fabric has become thin and delicate with age and needs professional heirloom dry cleaning. Yellowing (this gown was likely an ivory when new, these do tend to yellow with age so it has taken on more of a golden hue).
This has been stored indoors in a closet for last 50 years, but does have some storage smell. Tiny spots, primarily along the hemline-refer to last photo for most predominant Notable Issues.
Hook and eye closures down the back. Some raw edges along the cuffs and collar, refer to last photo. A truly gorgeous example of Wedding couture, perfect for a collection, study, pattern making, display, PROPER HEIRLOOM DRY CLEANING IS RECOMMENDED.
