Vintage 1950s Wedding Dress
50s Wedding Gown
Ivory Taffeta
New Look Style
Long Sleeves with Chapel Points
Chapel Points are Edged with Ivory Battenburg Lace and Six Covered Buttons on the Inside of the Arm
Bodice has a Basque Waist Edged with Piping - With Covered Buttons from the Mid Bust to Below the Waist
The Neckline is a Narrow V - with a Ivory Battenburg Lace Small Collar
Bodice has Long Piped Seams Starting at the Shoulders - (Which also creates a back yoke)
The Skirt is Full - and has a Small Chapel Length Train
This Wedding Dress Comes with the Original Cotton & Satin Hoop Skirt (shown worn under the dress in the photos) and Ivory Tulle Headpiece (the tulle veiling was ripped and shattered - so it was removed) - This dress would be perfect for a bride who is a bit taller - as we all know, finding a long enough vintage wedding gown is often difficult!

Measurements (measured in inches)
Bust 35" (add another inch for bodice darts)
Waist 25" - Snug 26"
Hips Free
Length 60" (from the shoulder to the front hem)
Length from Waist to Train Hem 52.5"
Shoulders 18.5" - There is no real shoulder seam, so this dress could accommodate almost any shoulder width, in the small to medium size range)
Sleeve 23"

*model is 5'6" and her measurements are 32C/24"/36"*
This dress fit the model, but was a bit large in the sleeves, bust and waist - not fitted perfectly but not TOO big.

Size (if marked): -

Label: -
Material: Taffeta (medium weight) Battenburg Lace, (hoop skirt is cotton & satin)
Condition: Near Perfect! - Ive counted four tiny spots on the dress, all the size of flecks and all are quite faint. There are two on the right shoulder and two more (cluster of pin dots) on the right side of the bust, near the underarm. There are also extremely faint pale yellow rings under the armpits, one side travels down under the sleeve - again, I had to hold the dress up to the light to see these - and they will likely lighten greatly with a professional dry cleaning. The cotton on the hoop skirt has some minor spotting throughout - which is NOT seen when worn under the dress! - Other than those flaws, just a handful of small dust smudges along the skirt - this gown is in near perfect condition for its age. The original bridge who wore it was married in 1953.

Era: 1950s, 50s, fifties, mid century
Style: new look, classic, elegant, royal wedding, modest
Type: wedding gown, wedding dress, long sleeve wedding dress, royal wedding dress, kate middleton wedding dress
Color: ivory
Provenance: This dress belongs to a lovely woman who lived in Pennsylvania, I acquired this dress from her niece. (I am also selling a few other pieces of hers in my shop!)
