This stunning vintage bridal gown was made in the 1960s as a nod to Regency-era styles (hello, Bridgerton!) with its true empire waist, bateau neckline, and column shape with fullness and a train in the back. The cut of this dress is really phenomenal and unique: the underskirt is a slim column shape, to balance the fullness of the sheer overlay— the material has a great structure which underscores this silhouette. Additionally, it's very fitted through the chest, shoulders, and sleeves. The lace appliqué details at chest are so beautiful, which continue onto the neckline, leaving a scalloped edge for a romantic look. The ribbon-woven details are the cherry on top.  There is slight volume at shoulder, the shape tapering through the sleeve towards the cuff, which has beautiful embroidery and button details. The train is exquisite; the lining stops at the front length, with the sheer chiffon continuing, and the sheerness really showcasing the beautiful lace appliqué details. At the hem, there is a loop that can be used as a wrist loop to hold the train up; a bustle could easily be added. It closes with a zipper up the back, with snaps on the appliqué for a seamless hidden zipper. This dress has been lovingly restored, with some alterations that were not original to the 1960s-era dress.

The Vintage Baroque-Revival Double Drop Pearl Earrings pictured are also available.

Measurements: Fits like a size X-Small or Small. Please refer to below measurements to be sure.
Shoulders: 16.25" (between where sheer sleeves start)
Chest: 32.5"
Empire Waist: 27"
Hips are free
Sleeves: just over 22"
Length: 51.25" from shoulder to front hem (lining stops just short of here, to let details on edge peek through, dipping very slightly longer in the back); train extends an additional 28"  

Great vintage condition, with minor general wear commensurate with age. There is a snag in the train's chiffon in one place but due to the placement it isn't very noticeable and doesn't detract from its beauty as a whole. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
