The Ivy Retreat


Ivory chemise

VintageRachel ChurchComment

This is a such a lovely vintage chemise that could easily be dressed up as a wedding gown.  It's from the 1980's but has a very 20's or 30's Hollywood glamorous feel to it.  The base is made up of an ivory satin and there are additions of blush pink lace details put at the back, front, and at the leg .  Check it out with more bridal in the shop

Sorry for the delay, folks!  It has been a crazy couple of weeks.  I participated in my first vintage market and moved into a new house (among many other things).  So, life has been great, but just really stuffed with lots to do!  I'm super pumped that The Ivy Retreat's studio is finally taking shape, too.  So, there will be plenty of new pieces popping up for your viewing pleasure! Today I'm posting pictures of a pretty 1950's chemise that I picked up recently.  I think it would be the sweetest little wedding dress with a nude slip or tight dress layered under it.  The accordion pleating with lace trim that scoops to the back is such a lovely detail.  Check it out in the shop!
