The Romantic Dream Dress:

Gorgeous William Cahill vintage 1940-1950's cream ivory wedding dress. The neckline is laced to the nap of the neck and lace sleeves. The dress zips down the back with two hook closures over the zipper, however their thread hooklets are gone. There is one layer of fabric under the skirt. Tag inside reads William Cahill California. I love the simple silk rosettes on the train. They add just the perfect subtle touch of femme charm and elegance.

The dress comes in the "Wedding Dress Keepsake" box and original shell covering—it, too, is in 'mint' condition with graphics and details reflecting the era of this rare, antique treasure.


This gorgeous dress has not been cleaned and there are minor bruises and 3-4 surface light spots on train and yellowing lace. On the front of the dress there are spots on the scalloped lace. The back train area has dirt marks from dragging when worn, and the scalloped lace in one area has a rip but the lace maybe repaired. Some sequence and beading maybe loose, but it does not appear to be noticeable. Unsure if the stains are removable and the dress is labeled "Professional Care Only". My experience, to date, has been very positive. I work with a very good local cleaner (here in Sacramento) that specializes in 'vintage' and are able to use solvents and cleaning methods effective and appropriate to the era.

All buttons are fully and beautifully intact! (And there are many, many...many...buttons!)

MEASUREMENTS: (all measurements are approx.)

Bust - 32" –cup size B
Waist - 24"
Hips - n/a
Skirt length (front) - 38" to floor
Skirt length (back) - 68" to end of train
Sleeve length - 18" from underarm to wrist

It's my hope this well-cared for and very 'special' dress is united with a beautiful, blushing pride who will celebrate it's history and create a new chapter for both the dress and future brides in their family!
