1940's Lace wedding dress

I found this 1940's handmade wedding dress tucked away in an antique store the other day.  It was tied up and shoved in a corner to look like an unassuming blanket or lace cloth.  You can imagine the surprise I felt when I opened it up and found that it was actually a darling vintage wedding dress.  Pretty exciting!  This ivory lace and tulle gown is fit for a petite, slender type.  It honestly looks like a ballerina's dream dress.  It has a pleated and boned lace top that extends past the waistline and two layers of tulle that sit on top of a satin skirt.  This gorgeous 70+ year dress is quite the looker!  Check it out in the shop today!
