Vintage 60s Ivory Cream Silk Wedding Gown with Beaded Over Top

Iconic Mad Men era, white/cream silk wedding gown with separate beaded top. Gown is fashioned of a luxe silk and features a "V" neckline, spaghetti straps, wide fitted waistband and pockets tailored into the side seams. Heavily beaded over-top with sparkling platinum pinwheels accented with round and marquis shaped, dazzling rhinestones (the camera just did not capture the brilliance of the beadwork. it really is dazzling in person!). Scattered silver sequins create a snowfall effect. Hemline and sleeves have a dangling fringe of crystal beads. Beautifully designed, masterfully constructed.

The perfect winter wedding gown with great versatility offering two looks in one. Wear the two pieces for your wedding ceremony then slip off the beaded top for dancing! After the wedding, wear the amazing beaded top with a slinky black skirt or black pencil pants.

Both the dress and over-top zip up the back (though the zipper of the beaded top does not work and will need to be replaced). Skirt has a built-in crinoline and holds the shape as shown in photos.

Color is cream, best represented in the second photo. Please bear in mind that color representation will vary from one computer monitor to the next.

The prestigious label~ Victoria Royal Ltd, Made in British Crown Colony Hong Kong

Measurements:
Labeled a vintage size 8, not the same as a contemporary size 8 so please go by measurements.
Dress~
Bust - approx 34" (measuring 16" across back and 18" across front. please measure this way)
Waist - 25" at bottom of waistband (26" at top of waistband/seam under bust)
Hips - free to 52"
Top of Spaghetti Strap to Bottom of Waistband - 16"
Bottom of Waistband to Hemline - 41"

Beaded Top~
Bust - 34"
Waist - 29.5"
Shoulder Span - 15.5"
Sleeve Length - 22" to bottom of sleeve plus 1.5" of beaded fringe
Shoulder to Hem - 18" to bottom of fringe

Condition:
Overall excellent condition. Presents beautifully. On close inspection, there are a few (emphasis on *few*) scattered missing beads/rhinestones but truly nothing you would notice unless you were looking for it as we did. All of the crystal beaded fringe is intact. As mentioned previously, the zipper of the beaded top will need to be replaced. Zipper of the gown is not super smooth but works fine. We find no overt stains or holes and there are no odors. There are a few minor, light marks on the dress, nothing that stands out. There is one very small "line" on the lower skirt that we thought might be a tear but it does not go through the back of the fabric. It looks like it is either inherent to the fabric or has been repaired. We would recommend backing it to make sure it is secure. It won't be noticeable when wearing. Initials are written over the labels. We have photos of all of these areas so please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to email them to you.This is truly an exquisite vintage piece and a most unique wedding gown you will not see on anyone else!
