Stunning white wedding gown by Arden of Campus Bridal, circa late 1940s-early 1950s. This dress has long tulle sleeves with the same scattered daisies w/ faux pearl centers as the rest of the dress; the sleeves end w 5 tiny buttons with loops (exactly like the ones up the back) and are trimmed in the daisies sans the "pearls"; HOWEVER, I have tucked the sleeves in for the pictures as I think it is much more beautiful without the sleeves; the sleeves would be extremely easy for a tailor to remove. The construction of this dress is absolutely impeccable - it is fully lined in a white satin fabric which is most likely a rayon satin. The bodice features a beautiful V neckline followed with diagonally pintucked layers of tulle surrounded by a train of ivory diasies embroidered in a train each witha faux pearl center; as you can see in the 3rd pic, this goes up to shoulders on sides. Bust has darts; below daisies, the center is pintucked diagnoal tulle, while the front sides are just white tulle covered. A V shaped waistline gives this the ultimate slimming look. Below the waistline, the dress absolutely "EXPLODES" with layers of white tulle over the lining, 3 layers - the second and third layers have 9" ruffled tulle tiers. As you can see, the outermost layer is scattered with the same faux pearl center daisies as the bodice; also, as you can see in the 2nd pic, the front center has a large vertical daisy train leading to a large satin "bow" applique, followed by another vertical daisy train. In back, there are tiny covered buttons with loops all the way down to hip area; back of bodice has same diagonal pintucking as front to midway down bodice. The tulle from front comes around to back on each side and casades down the back sides in ruffled tulle tiers trimmed in trains of daisies. Dress has a slight train, as the back of the outter layer of tulle curves downward to form a longer hem in back than front and sides. This dress has a couple of very minor flaws: It could use a good cleaning - a few of the buttons are discolored and the satin bow in front has some tiny faint spots - nothing major; and the lining is a non issue since it doesn't show under the tulle, etc but it has some scattered faint spots also - dry cleaner should be able to get all this out.. Also, in the back where the "train" is, a seam repair is needed where the tulle has separated from the ruffled tier - about 16" - this would be a super easy and quick fix with a sewing machine. Otherwise, this dress is in excellent condition.
