Vintage 1930s White Silk Chiffon Bridal Gown
Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.
The charts on this page are here to assist you in understanding how vintage clothing and kimonos are measured and where you should measure on your body.
This dress is in very good condition. It is all custom made, no tags. There is one faint mark at the bottom on the right side of the dress, several small holes in the skirt and the very narrow hem needs refolding and tacking down in some spots. All of these can be easily mended and all are generally hidden within the drape of the skirt. There is minor seam separation on one sleeve, also very easily mended. All can be seen in the photos.
Measurements are approximate, taken flat and doubled where necessary.
