This is an absolutely stunning vintage wedding gown from the 1980s that was made in the USA by Jessica McClintock, and it has a Victorian style to it. The material is a gauzy cotton polyester blend that is semi sheer, and it is a creamy ivory white color.
The main body of the dress is lined in acetate, but the sleeves are unlined and slightly sheer. The dress has long sleeves and a high lace collar.There are also lace accents on the chest, at the ends of the sleeves, and all over the skirt. The dress has a fitted waist with a large bow accent in the back, and the skirt has a very full cut. There is an attached tulle crinoline lining the skirt to help show off the fullness of the dress. The dress closes with a zipper down the back. The tag labels this a size 14, but vintage sizes tend to run smaller than modern sizes, so this may be closer to a modern size 12. The actual measurements are as follows. Across, underarm to underarm (39 inches around, taken with the material pulled taught) Shoulders: 15.5 inches across, seam to seam Sleeves: 23 inches from the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve Waist: 15.5 inches across (31 inches around) Hips: Full and roomy Length: 56 inches. These are the actual measurements of the garment, so please leave yourself room for comfort of movement. All measurements were taken with the item laying flat. The flat measurements were doubled to give an approximate measurement around. This dress is in very good vintage condition. I did notice a couple of tiny marks on the fabric (see last two pictures) but these are very small and should not be too noticeable when the dress is worn!
I also have many other items in my store, so check out my other listings! BY PURCHASING, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE FOLLOWING STORE POLICIES. I go to the post office every week day, Monday - Friday. Ive had some customers get their packages in around a week, and for others, it has taken a month.
The large majority of the items in my store are vintage, and therefore pre-owned. I do my best to only put items up for sale that are in very good to excellent vintage condition, and I will list any major flaws that I notice. However, most vintage clothing has been around for several decades or more, and it may have some minor snags in the fabric, the occasional loose thread or other minimal signs of wear. Vintage items may also have raw seams that have not been serged.
By purchasing, you are accepting that these items are used and may not be 100% perfect. However, if you feel I have overlooked a major flaw, please let me know! I personally have a SMOKE FREE AND PET FREE HOME.I won't sell a piece of clothing if I notice a smoke smell on it from a previous owner. I have no way of knowing if the original owner of the clothing had pets, but I will use a lint roller to remove any fuzz or stray hair I notice. Because most of what I sell is vintage, an item may have been in storage for quite a few years, so I always recommend you wash or dry clean your item before wearing it. If for some reason you have a problem, please CONTACT ME before leaving negative or neutral feedback, and I will do my best to help you with your concerns!
