Item v5533 ... Price: $395 SOLD
A positively exquisite 1950's wedding dress in a fine gauge pale pinkish beige tulle. Sheer gathered bodice with high neck and gathered short sleeves. Lace appliques on the bodice are arranged to give the appearance of a sweetheart neckline. Attached, heart shaped strapless acetate liner. Gown has a VERY full lace appliqued skirt with a layer of fine gauge tulle on top of a layer of a heavier gauge tulle, lined in acetate. Buttons up the back with tulle covered buttons. Dress is shown on top of (and comes with) the original short hoop that was worn with the dress by the original owner. Dress also comes with matching candlelight tulle gauntlets. Label for "Hess Brothers Allentown, PA."
Size: (need help with your measurements? click here)
33" bust, 24" waist, free hips. Approximately 51" from shoulder to hem.
Condition: In good condition. A small hole in the tulle under the buttons (I think this area may have been repaired but it really doesn't stand out). One of the lace appliques on the bodice has two tiny orange pin dots. Two of the buttons have a little fraying. Hoop has some spotting (has not been washed).
