1930s Ivory Satin Wedding Dress with Cowl Neck and Beading

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Amazing vintage 1930s bias cut ivory silk satin wedding dress with fabulous decorative collar around the front and scooping down to follow the shape of the low back. At the front there is also the addition of small cowl neck and some dainty white beading all the way around. It has a small train and could accommodate a range of sizes due to the flattering and extremely well executed bias cut from size UK 8 - 12 or US size 4 - 8. So that the train falls on the floor, the dress would also be best on someone under 5 foot 7” or 170cm. These dresses are extremely difficult to find in pristine condition, we grade our example in excellent to very good condition as there are some very subtle marks in the fabric to the front of the skirt. These are only noticeable in very bright lights but do not detract from the overall beauty and rarity of the dress.

Approximate measurements are:

Bust 84-92cm/ 33-37"
Hip 90-100cm/ 35-40"
Front Length 145cm/ 57"
Back Length 175cm/ 69"
