Professionally cleaned and vacuum-sealed after wedding day.

Other Vintage Long-sleeve Empire Beaded Lace Wedding Gwn Wedding Dress

For Fall or Winter wedding, this Victorian-styled gown of Ivory satin is fashioned with a round neckline, empire waist, lace-topped bodice, long Camelot sleeves - trimmed with a border of white beaded alencon lace.  The gown was custom-designed, worn once at the wedding then promptly professionally cleaned and vacuumed-sealed.  It was only opened today to take pictures to post.

Size:  Since gown was customed-designed, there is no size label; however, the bride was about a petite size 6-8 at the time.  She was 5'1.5" tall.  (The hem on the gown is 2 1/4".) The front empire seam measures 13 1/2" under the bustline.

Mantilla:  Although lace mantilla headpiece is unique and may not appeal to you today, the empire styled gown is classic.  The mantilla is gathered to a cap of matching lace and has a wide border of the beaded lace.  It forms a long train on the floor behind the gown.

Train:  A separate panel sewn with the skirt into the bodice seam.  It extends to the floor only not behind the gown as the mantilla.  

Condition:  Gown requires gentle ironing only at fold seams where boxed.  The gown is almost pristine, except there are two light tan marks at bottom of train panel - one on on bottom left corner, the other to the right of center a bottom.
