1930s Original White Silk Satin Bias Cut Wedding Dress



This enchanting 1930s silk satin wedding gown is in really good vintage condition and of exceptional quality. The opulent silvery white satin fabric is unlined and expertly tailored to create a flattering fairytale silhouette that would complement a classic hourglass figure. Delicate piped seams run at diagonals across the front of each shoulder and are mirrored by seams that triangulate to a point at the centre of the bust. The fabric is tightly gathered beneath the seams at the shoulders and gently rushed over the bust to allow for extra give. The long sleeves taper at the wrist to form a point over the top of each hand. The gown is bias cut to allow for greater freedom of movement in the hip and falls elegantly to the floor. The train at the reverse of the gown is tapered gently to a point and there is a discrete satin loop that can be worn over the finger, or held by the bridal procession to elevate the fabric. There is a satin belt that loops through each side of the waist to be tied at the reverse. The reverse of the gown features exquisite piped seams in a zig-zag Deco style motif to accentuate the waistline. There is no zip and the gown is accessed like a slip, so there is a beautiful fluidity to the way the piece travels over the body. The gown is unlabelled. This magical piece would best suit a US size 4, UK size 8 - 10, although there is some extra give at the bust and hip.
