This couture cream silk dress is embellished with beautiful hand made lace. Circa 1960s. It is fully lined with white acetate.
There is a zip at the back with a hook at the top and underarm dress shields to protect the garment from perspiration.
The shoulders have tabs to hold a bra in place, and also a long piece of adjustable elastic secured by two buttons (to hold a bra in place?).
The top of the dress is trimmed with ornate hand made lace. The fine lace has been finished with beads and faceted glass diamantes.
There is a superb lace front piece which the original owner removed, but which can easily be reinstated. This fits around the waist and fixes with two hooks. It is embellished with beads and sparkling diamantes.
There are a very few marks and imperfections due to age, but this vintage dress is in excellent condition.
This stunning luxurious couture dress would make the most fabulous wedding dress!
