1950s William Cahill Beverly Hills Pleated Organza Vintage Wedding Dress Train


This is an absolutely outstanding vintage dress from William Cahill of Beverly Hills. I have sold several Cahill vintage wedding dresses over the years and this one is one of my favorites! The simple ivory organza wiggle dress is pleated and has a back metal zipper and short cap sleeves. The train attaches with hooks and eyes and is pleated on the diagonal. This dress is in amazing condition and would make a stunning one of a kind wedding dress or a show stopping party dress! Please use the measurements as a guide, but I estimate this to be a modern day size 2/4, and please pay special attention to the circumference of the arm holes as they are quite small. A Magical dress! BUST: 34" WAIST: 24" HIPS: 34" LENGTH from nape of neck to waist: 12" LENGTH from under arm to waist: 8" LENGTH from waist: 26" ARM OPENING: 11"
