This is a stunning VINTAGE TEA LENGTH TEA STAINED 1950's Wedding or party dress. Gorgeous lace boned bodice, satin and tulle to die for I think the tea staining came out quite well. The dress was originally a creamy white but had some stains and such. Following the stain removal I immersed this beautiful dress in 200 teabags in my back garden. The result is this gorgeous dress suitable for a wedding or a formal party.

There is a metal side zipper and hook and eye closure. This dress is quite vintage so there are some loose threads and hooks but the only issue that might be more difficult to address is noted in the last photo. About the size of a quarter, the lace has pulled away and has left a bald spot. If I fell in love with this dress and wanted it to be mine, I would stitch the lace back together given I had enough room in the dress to do so and if not I might stitch a similar lace piece right into that spot and since it is on the back of the dress, I would wear it proudly!
Now for the details: Remember that there is a boned bodice.

Vintage, is well, old and has traveled through time. The items I present have been loved and have their own stories to tell. Most have natural occurring flaws, which in most cases add to the visual interest. I do my best to point these out for each item but if you are looking for perfection you probably won’t find that here in my shop unless otherwise indicated.
I ship just about anywhere so if you are outside the USA convo me with an address and I will reserve it for you while I get you an actual quote. I will ship the most economical route but if you have a preference, please let me know prior to payment. Any shipping costs over $2.00 will be credited to you. I love to combine shipping and I LOVE to use recycled packaging.
