Original vintage 1950s oyster white beaded tulle ballgown dress.
This beautiful dress is cut with a strapless sweetheart bodice embellished with iridescent swirls, rhinestones and glass beads. Under the bust sits a duchess satin band with bow at the back and a tulle covered waistline. A very full tulle skirt is gathered to the waist and the skirt fall to ankle length, fit for a ballerina.
The dress is fully lined with a stiff taffeta lining and boned support to the bodice.
This would make a stunning wedding dress, in off white the colour lends itself to silvers, crystals and pearl accessories. Leave the neckline naked and opt for long drop earrings instead.
