Item v6263 ... Price: $255 SOLD
An outstanding 1940's wedding gown in a dark ivory (not quite cream) marquisette. Fitted, sweetheart bodice with ivory braid, embroidery and tiny faux pearls. Sheer yoke. Pointed, sheer long sleeves with snaps at the wrists. The dress is lined in acetate (except for sleeves and yoke of course), however it is a lightweight acetate and will probably require an additional slip underneath (if you look closely at the photos you can see the seams of the mannequin through the acetate on the skirt). Side button closure. Store label for "Frank R Jelleff Inc. Washington D.C."
Size: (need help with your measurements? click here)
34" bust, 25" waist, MAX 38 hips. Approximately 59" from shoulder to hem (about 89" to the tip of train).
Condition: In strong, wearable condition. A few pin holes in the marquisette at the underarms. A faint underarm ring on the lining of both sides. A pin hole and one dark thread towards the point of the right sleeve. One pin hole on the neckline and one on the center back (both are hard to see). The rear bodice has a hole about the size of half a pea thorugh both the marquisette and the acetate. It is located about 1" from the button placket and will be mostly obscured by the arm when on (see photo). You may also be able to extend a little embroidery over it to mask it. One black pin dot on the skirt. A few pin holes scattered on the top of the skirt. Quite a few scattered small holes in the lower third of the skirt and train... a few may be visible (pay close attention to the main photo of the dress at the bottom right side). Although you may not see it depending on how the train falls (we have the train arranged so that you can see them), there is a cluster of six quarter sized yellow spots on the train. Although I can't pick them out, I would assume there are probably a few missing pearls.
