Vintage 1950s Wedding Dress / Tiered Lace 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.
It is in almost perfect condition. The only issue to be found is a little seam stress at the hip, which is very easily fixed by a tailor, shown in last photo. This dress is so bright and clean, it looks as if it has never been worn.
