Modest Vintage 1969 Wedding Dress - Vintage Bridal Gown
With Accessories and detachable train.
Off-white modest vintage wedding gown last worn in 1969.
Fabric content is unknown. This modest vintage bridal gown measures: Bust 40". Waist 33 1/2", Hip 50". No size label.
Possibly size 14. The bottom of the wedding gown skirt measures 73" around. Length from underarm to hem of the gown 49". The
sleeves are 18" from underarm to underside of wrist and 25 1/2" from shoulder to tip, that extends over the back of the hand.
Nine covered buttons and loops on each sleeve. There are slight gathers at the waist of this vintage bridal gown.
The train is detachable and can be bustled. It measure 32" out
from where it hit the floor. About 25" of that measurement is enhanced with appliques having sewn pearls and crystals.
The train attaches easily with 10 hooks sewn under the lace and pearls on the waistband of the wedding gown. It is pleated
for fullness and style.
The bridal gown has both a hook and snap closure at the back of
the neck and waist at the back zipper making the closures disappear. It even has bra strap holders. The bridal dress
is completely lined, including the train. The lining was cut and sewn together with the gown fabric.
The hand stitched detailing is exceptional. On the bridal gown
skirt it extends to the back. On the bodice it extends to the shoulder and top of the sleeves. There are pearls and crystals
on lace applique. The lace stand-up collar has pearls hand sewn completely around the neckline, as does the waist of the bridal
gown. You can see some of the detail in the picture with the headpiece below.
The wrinkling seen in the photos is because this wedding gown
has been professionally boxed and was just opened. Many of the creases have already come out.
This gown is beautiful. It is clean and unstained.
The pictures don't do it justice. I could find nothing wrong with it. There is nothing missing. There are no imperfections.
The condition is excellent. There is a headpiece, veil and money purse that go FREE with the purchase of this wedding
gown. They are the same fabric as the gown and the appliques and beading are the same.
This is a vintage bridal gown at its very best. Please
measure yourself carefully because there is very little seam fabric to let out.
$1199. plus $36.00 shipping and handling.
