Item details

Beautiful ivory gown that makes an incredible statement. This dress buttons down the back with 33 satin covered buttons. I can find no label, but I was told it is a dress from the 40's. It has a classic style and glass "pearls" in the middle of each circular lace pattern, which makes me believe it is at least earlier than the 60's.

This dress has a V neck that sits low on the neckline, almost off the shoulder. There are glass beads that decorate the lace that is around the neckline and then down the front of the dress. The satin has a rich sheen to it.

After hand washing, then steaming this dress, I did find some yellowed spots. There is one on the front of the dress, near the bottom, and perhaps two to three more. The yellowing spots are hard to find and I would not have seen them had I not been on my knees for three hours hand steaming this dress. Were this my wedding dress, I would take it to the cleaners to see if they could be removed, but the dress looks great as it is and will arrive to you clean.

The 33 buttons have fallen off and when I am recovered from steaming the 12 yards of fabric in this dress, I will put those back on.

I love, love, love the simplicity, elegance and flattering style of this dress.

Waist: 30"
Bust: 36"

Payments

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I usually ship within three business days of confirmed payment. Please note that Paypal echecks take 5 to 7 days to clear, during which I cannot send your item.

On receipt of item:
I list items as carefully as I can and ship them in protective packaging. Should something not be as described, please send me a convo within three days of receipt.

Holds:
I will hold an item for you for three days. If you are in need of more time you may lay an item away. To do this, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit fee. The remaining 50% plus postage is due within two weeks. If the item is not fully paid by that time, I will return it to stock and the deposit is forfeited.

Returns & exchanges

Because the fit of your wedding dress is especially important, I have the following policy for wedding dress fitting issues: if the dress is returned to me postmarked within three days of receiving the dress and in the same condition, I will return the payment except for a 15% restocking fee when I have the dress back. Postage both ways is paid for by the buyer.

Because of the unique and delicate nature of vintage clothing, I do not accept returns for other reasons, unless the description is significantly different than the item you receive.

Shipping policies

Because I work full time, as well as run this shop, I ship twice a week. Your item will be sent within five days of purchase. Please send me a note if you are in need of immediate shipping and I will do what I can to make it happen.

Please note: I will ship your item in protective plastic. It isn't as pretty as tissue paper, but it is far safer. If dropped in water, your item is protected, if the package tears, your item is protected, if it is raining when it is in transit, your item is protected.

I am happy to upgrade shipping and to send to most countries. Please ask for fees.

My shipping fees are approximate and based on a flat rate fee. If the difference between the actual cost of shipping and what was collected from you is $2 or more, I will refund the difference.

Custom and insurance fees are the purchaser's responsibility and I list the actual cost on the customs label. I will not honor requests to falsify customs forms.

Additional policies

Please ask if you have questions. I want you to be happy with your purchase and I strive to earn your positive feedback. Should you find that the item was not what you expected, please send me a note before leaving feedback. I want you to have a great Etsy experience with me!

I don't hang delicate garments on hangers! That wears at the fabric and can ruin the dress in time. I store my delicate items folded in bins.

I will put items on hold for two days.
