This stunning, one-of-a-kind wedding gown features a Watteau cape-back, creating such gorgeous movement with your every turn. It was originally made in the 1940s and lovingly restored and reworked by me and my seamstress, so it is completely one-of-a-kind. The ivory charmeuse has a soft, silky handfeel, with a liquid look. The bodice features a pleated "tulip" shaped chest, with sheer lace, hand-beaded embellishment, and floral appliqué. The dress remains fitted through the hips, flaring out in a slightly mermaid shape. There is a slit up the center back for ease of movement. Custom fabric-covered buttons fasten the back, with a Watteau cape overlay in two separate panels engendering such gorgeous movement with your every turn. The dress is unlined but not sheer.

The Vintage 1960s Diamanté Arc Earrings pictured are also available

Measurements: This will best fit a size X-Small as it is; I also think it would be beautiful if the dress was cut shorter (leaving the Watteau cape back long) and in this case it would fit a larger size because the Hips are much more restrictive than the waist or chest measurements. Please refer to below measurements to be sure.
Chest: there is a lot of gathering at the chest which makes it very flexible. It measures 30.5" laid flat with all the pleats flat, or up to 41.5" unfolded
Waist: 26.5"
Hips: 34.5"
Length: 56.5" from shoulder to hem

Good vintage condition overall, with some minor scuffing to the fabric, which is not visible from most angles and in most light (as that is the nature of the charmeuse fabric) but these minor flaws are less noticeable on the body, don't show in photos (see photos), and don't detract from the overall beauty of the dress, which presents beautifully. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
