Lovely vintage late 1920s wedding dress. White bias cut satin with v-neckline and tiered handkerchief hem. Drop waist style, long set-in sleeves, and snaps up the left side. It is in very good condition, there is little wear to the satin around the back v-neck and one small hole at the shoulder. There is some slight puckering to the skirt near the hem. See these things in the last photo. There are no other significant marks or stains, the satin is bright white! Professionally cleaned and ready to wear.

ABOUT VINTAGE CLOTHING SIZES
Vintage clothing sizes run smaller than modern clothing sizes and there is no industry standard sizing chart for modern women's clothing. When purchasing vintage clothes, it is important to know your own true body measurements and compare those to the garment measurements provided. Please take a moment to review this chart on how to take your own body measurements, so you can correctly determine if this item will fit you. Be sure to always leave several inches between your measurements and the garment measurement for proper fit and ease of movement. Returns due to improper fit will not be approved.
