1990s Silk Wedding Gown and Venetian lace Jacket, Size M
Stunningly beautiful in its simplicity with unique detailing, this dress appears to be a one-of-a-kind professionally made wedding gown. The fabric is natural dupioni silk which is crisp, as light as air and has a slight slub (natural weave) to the texture and a lovely openwork lace pattern to the hemline. There is a second layer of fine silk lining in the complete dress. The dress is A-line with a high empire seam above the waist, which is the most flattering of all the silhouettes. You could add a crinoline/petticoat to under the lining if you would like the dress to have more volume. There is a sweet small rosette at the back of the dress that could easily be removed if you wish.
The jacket is rich Venetian lace. The bodice is lined with the silk but the sleeves are just the lace. A simple snap closes the front of the jacket.
This is a stunning dress and would be suitable for a garden wedding or really formal event. As you can see, it is a little bigger than my mannequin - it would be best on a medium size frame where it would fit close to the body.
Bust: 36" Waist:29.5" Full length: 57"
The jacket is 16" across the shoulders and the sleeves are 25" long.
Condition is very good and has been cleaned.
