Welcome to the Fab Gabs 50% off Blowout Sale! In four years on Etsy, we've never had an event like this, but our shop has outgrown our space - we want to downsize to the comfortable 250 item size shop we used to be. So, this very special sale runs now through 11:59pm on August 2nd. Don't miss out - there's no Reserves and no Layaways, so get your favorite pieces while we run this special one-time-only sale. This stunning late 50's wedding gown is the height of elegance and simplicity. The exquisitely unadorned satin will put you and your features in the highlight. The gown features full length sleeves with a fitted point and button closures. It closes with a zipper up the back, but has buttons that actually button closed over this to conceal the zipper. The best detail is the perfectly bustled back, with deep pleats to create two heavy draped gathers of fabric. It features a short train. There is a built in underskirt of heavy interfacing, then a layer of tulle. There's also plenty of room to add an additional crinoline (as shown.)

Condition: Very Good

This dress is in very good condition, but will need a professional wedding dryclean before your special day. The satin at the front is fresh, clean, pure and lovely. On the back, there are some light smudges from storage wrapped on a hanger, primarily at back right, although these are almost entirely hidden by the draped effect. The heavy underskirt has soil at the back bottom of the hem. I cannot find any other issues to note with this beautiful gown - no underarm discoloration, spots, runs, etc. It is absolutely lovely.
