Description

A stunning strapless original 1950’s wedding gown in a confection of crisp white tulle, satin and romantic lace. What a statement this gown would make at the approaching prom season. The fabric is still winter white without yellowing. Maker’s label reads “ De & Pibs”. No fabric contents label but this is likely a synthetic blend.

Note the details on this stunning gown – the strapless (boned) lace over taffeta bodice with tufted tulle fan accent at the bustline, and the very full layered tulle skirt with lace cape overlay. There are actually three layers to this skirt – an underlayer of ivory satin acetate, a middle single layer of ivory tulle to give the skirt extra body, topped with a layer of ivory tulle and lace.

The dress comes with a lovely matching lace bolero shrug with bracelet length sleeves. Note the jacket is open face without closures.

This dress closes down the rear with a hidden metal zipper and fastener. The entire dress is lined in ivory satin acetate. The dress is photographed using a crinoline to show the skirt to full advantage – the crinoline is not included.

No vintage size label, so please see measurements below for a proper fit. This is a small size that would likely best fit a modern size 0 or 2.

Condition

This dress is in excellent vintage condition. No stains and underarms are clean. Amazingly I found no tears in either the outer tulle or lace. Only one minor mention – a small repair to the lining of the rear bodice. With the lace overlay this is relatively inconspicuous and resembles a slub in the pattern. There are also several tears to the inner tulle layer, but these are invisible from the exterior. No significant exterior defects to note.
