This 1950s wedding dress is heartstoppingly beautiful. A rare treasure of tambour lace, it is floating, ethereal and romantic. A sweetheart bustline of satin is covered with scalloped tambour lace that plays against the shoulder line and creates short tea cup sleeves. The basque waist is exceptionally slimming, creating a true nipped-waist hourglass. The bust is crisply darted. The full skirt has plenty of room for a crinoline (as shown) or even a hoop skirt. The skirt is a total of five layers - a satin underskirt, a layer of gathered tulle, and then a third layer of tulle, to which ruffled tiers of tulle are sewn, which support and fill out the tiers of tambour lace. This frothy creation closes up the back with a metal zipper, so dressing for your special day will be simple.

I have many more photos of this gown, including close-ups. Please write to inquire, and I will be happy to provide more.

There is small spot of soil to the embroidery on the tambour lace at each side of the waistline on the bodice. This is a curious location for such soil, so I imagine it might have happened from storage on a hanger, or from being held at the waist with slightly soiled hands. The discoloration affects small spots of embroidery only, and of course, being at the far sides of the body, are in very unnoticeable locations. I found one 5" tear in an under layer of tulle, and one torn scallop at the edge of the hem.

I find no other issues to note. It is sturdy, crisp and wears beautifully. This stunning gown can absolutely be worn as is, but I always recommend a professional dryclean and press prior to your special day.
