Stunning vintage 1930s wedding dress. Originally worn in 1935. Light champagne bias cut rayon duchesse satin with cowl neckline and full leg o'mutton sleeves. Attached satin half-belt in back with silver-tone buckle encrusted in faux pearls. Lovely satin flowers down the left side of the bodice. Snaps up the left side. It is in good condition, there is little wear to the satin in under one arm at a pointed seam, and the buckle is missing a couple pearls. There is one small section of open seam at the bottom of the snaps, a professional seamstress should be able to close it easily and it would look good as new. All are shown in last photo.

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.
