Vintage Wedding Gown Late 1940s by Cahill LTD California in Ivory.
Satin bodice and skirt with Chiffon overlay. Beautiful appliques of leaves on the Chiffon. This gown has 3 layers. First layer is the satin skirt and bodice, then a layer of stretchy mesh over the satin skirt and lastly the beautiful layer of Chiffon over the skirt and bodice. The sleeves and above the sweetheart neckline are of Chiffon also.
The skirt zips up as the back has clasps then 2 satin buttons at the neck. The sleeves have a satin button each. Corded lace on shoulders, around bust and waist.
Great Condition - The only flaws I found were 4 breaks in the Chiffon at the waist (See photo #6) and a small one in the back.
There is slight fading on the satin skirt but underneath and can't be seen under the Chiffon. There are 2 separations in the stretchy mesh that doesn't have a hemline but can't be seen since this is covered by the layer of chiffon.
