A handsome Victorian style 1970s wedding gown Reminiscent of Laura Ashley prairie style dresses it is made from sheer & crisp self-stripe organdy fabric in an off-white colour, fully lined at the main with white satin backing Floor length, it features a high collared neck with V shaped ribbon & lace frills, a fitted bodice & empire line waist. Gathered shoulders create a full & sheer sleeve to the elbow which is then fitted, Gauntlet style, tight to the wrist with ribbon & lace frills & fabric covered rouleau/button fastenings all along the lower arm in a Juliette style The skirt is A-line & sweeps beautifully to the floor Secured by a concealed back metal zip which is covered with a full, large bow at the small of the back Circa 70s, possibly earlier in good vintage condition. I believe it to be handmade (superbly so). There are quite a lot of tiny nibble holes to the inner satin lining, & also to the exterior fabric, notably about the lower hem, however these are almost completely unnoticeable due to the layering effect of the lining & overskirt (refer third last pic). There is a distressed hole to each of the underside of the sleeves right near the pits (see second last pic). These are not too noticeable when the dress is on. The RHS sleeve has two holes at the upper gathered shoulder, one is 1cm long & the other 2cm. They are noticeable due to the sheerness of the fabric on the arm (refer last pic), but could be backed with some interfacing or carefully stitched to repair, although the fullness of the fabric conceals them well. A few of the buttons at the sleeves are discoloured as pictured, nothing major. One uppermost button missing from the RHS sleeve, but the dress comes with two replacement buttons. The dress is in overall great, wearable but delicate condition & should be treated with care – it has been priced to take these flaws into account please note there are no returns SIZE: No size label it would best fit a modern Aus size 6 to 8 – please check measurements carefully MEASUREMENTS (LAID FLAT): shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 33cm neck opening: 16.5cm full sleeve length: 71cm wrist opening: 8cm underarm to underarm: 44cm waist: 33cm front bodice length: 37cm front skirt length: 102cm full back length: 141cm full sweep (bottom hem): 208cm approx Thanks for looking, please contact me with any questions x 70S Prairie Wedding Dress Size 6-8 – Off White Organdy With Empire Waist_Leg O Mutton/Juliette Rouleau Sleeve_Victorian
