Simple wedding dress- White wedding dress- 1940s bridal

228.00

This is a gorgeous dress from the 1940's. It has a high set sweetheart neckline with gathering and ruffles as well has puffed sleeves. The left side of the dress has small buttons (no zipper) and the fit of the dress comes from the straps that come out from the waist to tighten at the back. The lower/ skirt part of the dress is covered with a sheer layer of accordion pleated fabric. This would be a sweet and feminine wedding dress! 

Details..

Fits like: Small/ Extra Small- The measurements in the dress are larger than the normal small/extra small size, but it is supposed to have some extra room in it so that it can pull back the extra fabric and tie in the back. I am usually size 4 US dress,a 34C bust, and 5'9. This dress does not look good on my frame and would be much better on a petite frame with a smaller bust. The neckline sits quite high. It is pictured on a model closer to a US size 2 or 0. 
Bust: up to 37 inches
Waist: up to 28 inches 
Hips: free
Length: 51 inches
Material: N/A- feels like a silky rayon top section and sheer lightweight crepe fabric for the skirt layer. 
Label: N/A
Condition: Great vintage condition. There are a few small imperfections in this dress. As seem in the last photo, there are a few tiny holes in the top section as well as a light brown spot (lower back of the skirt) and a very very light almost pencil-like mark on the sheer fabric (middle front of the skirt). Please ask any questions prior to purchasing.
