This lace wedding dress is absolutely beautiful. From the basque waistline to the pointed sleeves, and the extremely full skirt to the just-off-the shoulders neckline, this is a lovely example of 1950s style. It is very well crafted with lots of extra touches. The nearly perfect ivory lace is backed with a layer of tulle for added durability and stiffness. And it is fully lined with a heavy satin. To show off the skirt to its full advantage, an extra layer of tulle was added between the lining and lace and horsehair is sewn into the hem. Sweet little self-fabric covered buttons line the back (no zipper here!) and wrists while a chain of sequin and bead leaves augment the neckline. Can’t you just feel the lace tickling your calves as you waltz down the aisle?

Very good condition. There is some minor discoloration on lining at back and on a few buttons. Also a handful of tears in the lace netting, which well hidden since the lace is lined with tulle.
A 1” separation in lining at the waist seam was reinforced.
