BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL 1950’s BESPOKE IVORY SILK SATIN WEDDING DRESS MATCHING BOLERO UK Size 10, US Size 6. HAND MADE. Wedding Bridal.
A beautiful original vintage bespoke wedding dress, hand-made in gorgeous pale ivory silk satin brocade, with full skirt and silk taffeta full underskirt. There is scalloped edging to the front where the dress hemline goes up and it is topped off with a large bow. It is very flattering on and looks even prettier in real life than on the model. It would have been made by a seamstress, as a ‘one off’ bespoke piece. Most of the seams are french and there is also quite a bit of hand sewing. You just wouldn’t find anything like this nowadays, or if you did… it would cost an absolute fortune!
There are a couple of very light marks and a couple of spot marks on the petticoat (please see last two photos). This is to be expected with an older piece, but you don’t even notice it with all the ruffles and folds of fabric and there is nothing which detracts from its immense charm. The dress has been in storage for a long time and would probably benefit from a clean before wearing anyway. It is a Fabulous piece in Wonderful Condition for its age.
I do have the original carboard box for the dress, which I can include, but the dress may get crumpled in it as it’s quite small. Please mention at time of purchase if you would like it.
The ‘pearl’ necklace is not included, but is available to buy in my Shop.
