Original vintage 1940s cream hand made lace wedding dress and slip.
This exquisite gown is hand crafted from a beautiful floral lace that starts with a delicate collar, fits tightly over the bodice and down the slender sleeves to a pointed cuff. From the fitted waist the lace design falls in a cascade from the centre with detailed borders and a panel at the back to a graduated hem, gently overlapping a floor length tulle ballgown skirt.
Underneath, a peach taffeta slip delicately creates a blush to the whole gown.
Fabric: Hand made tambour lace on tulle, tulle and rayon taffeta

Condition: in wearable condition, damage to the lace in places as pictured but strong enough to wear. There had been more damage at the waist (a possible waistband may have been here) and has been repaired with an invisible bond of tulle. This is reflected in the price.
