This stunning wedding dress was custom made for one of my relative’s wedding in 1973.

The dress has layers of glorious cream chiffon that flutter in the breeze, with a small train at the back and long flowing ‘angel’ sleeves.

It has been custom made and is of a very high quality (all the chiffon edges have been hand-rolled). It also comes with a separate petticoat.

The style is elegant and demure with the arms and shoulders covered in chiffon. Please note – in the photos the zip at the back of the dress has not been done up as it was difficult to put on my mannequin due to the way she is posed (as a result the dress does not sit as well as it should in the photos). When zipped up the dress fully covers the shoulders and upper back. Due to the delicate fabric you wouldn’t want it to be too tight a fit (suited to a size XS – approx. Australian Size 8, but please check measurements below).

Chest: 38.5cm (15 inches)
Waist: 29.5cm (11.6 inches)
Hip : free
Shoulders: 35.5cm (13.9 inches)
Full Length: 145cm (57 inches)
Top of shoulder to waist: 39.5cm (15.5 inches)
Waist to hem: 105cm (41.3 inches)

The dress is in good vintage condition with no major flaws that are obvious when worn. Due to the delicate fabric there are some signs of wear (eg. pulling on seams) and there are some light marks on the hem. These signs of wear are only seen when you carefully look for them – at more of a distance or in photos they would not be noticed. Due to these minor signs of wear I have reduced the price of the dress. It is also clean and fresh with no bad smell or yellowing. The dress has been stored very carefully and has been periodically dry cleaned.

The bride and groom are still happily married with two kids - so this dress must be good luck!

*IMPORTANT POSTAGE DETAILS*

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA, THE US OR UK PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR A POSTAGE QUOTE.

This dress will be sent using registered post for extra security. It will require a signature on arrival.

Please note that I am actually giving a $10 discount on postage to the US and UK due to the expense of posting it from Australia. Unfortunately Australia is a long way from the rest of the world and we have an expensive postal service. Please bear in mind that it may take longer to reach you than you may be used to due to the distance.
