This vintage wedding dress really has the wow factor! The halter neck style is very glamorous and flattering and the white silk with sequins and beading just adds to the impact of this 1980s vintage long dress. I think of this as the Marilyn Monroe dress for its film star appeal. This dress is made from pure silk chiffon which is fully beaded with tiny round pearl beads and small silver tube beads. The hems are edged with the silver tube beads. It has a sequin feature on the right side of the bodice which extends up the right side helter neck. The dress is fully lined; the lining appears to be acetate or viscose. The beading gives this dress a lovely feel to wear; the skirts swish marvellously around the legs! It feels good; it looks terrific; a dress to be seen in on a special day.

This dress is in good condition. I have had it in my collection since the 1980s (it may be older) and have cherished it. Some small areas of beading were missing but I have replaced these by hand to match the original hand beading. I challenge you to spot the replacements! I will include a small bag full of replacement beads so that if any more are lost (these dresses tend to shed them) they can be replaced.

No labels; here are the actual garment measurements, taken with the dress flat on the table:
Bust 36" (92cm)"
Waist 31" (79cm)
Hips 36" (92cm)
Length, underarm seam to hem 50" (127cm)

This dress has caused me some problems in taking its measurements. There is some give in the fabric so it is hard to be precise. What I mean is that if I measure the dress on the mannequin, it stretches and is longer and thinner but if I measure it flat it depends how I arrange the fabric. I suppose this means that the sizing is fairly flexible as is the silk chiffon that carries the beading! Please contact me if you require any more detailed information about the sizing of this dress. This dress weighs around 2.5lbs (over 1kg).
