This dress has only had 2 owner's (before coming to me.) The original owner and the lady that bought it from the family and sold to me.The most magnificent floral beading is fully covering the dress. There is a metal 'gold bullion' ribbon threaded through the drop waist. This has snaps down the side and hook and eyes at the waist. The lace side panels have hoops in them at the hip. Please notice the wedding picture of the original owner. This dress is truly museum worthy.
Bust: 34"/34.5" approx.
Brand: N/A, this is definitely not a home made dress, very high end.
Condition: She is beautiful for her age (but not without issues.) There is a very tiny bit of underarm discoloration (mainly on one side and in a very small amount.) There is a tiny hole on that side and a very tiny threadbare bit close to the seam so it could be taken in just a smidge and completely gotten rid off. There is some discoloration throughout the dress, esp. on the back . One light pink spot on front bodice. Very minor bead loss and because the beading is so heavy it has slightly weighed the dress down at the shoulders. The real issue is that the lace is very fragile and needs repair/replacement as it is tattered.
