This is such an enchanting vintage wedding dress! There is the most lovely pearl beading detail throughout the Chantilly lace and crepe silk bodice! The skirt of the gown is the softest, thickest, Ivory satin, that is buttery and just so lovely! This modest wedding dress has a satin outer layer, then a thin silk layer, a full layer of tulle, then another inner silk layer with tulling on the hem! 4 layers in all!
The floral Chantilly lace that covers the short, cap sleeve bodice is just so beautiful! There are raised 3-D lace flowers that are beaded in seed pearls!
The train is long, has bows and satin covered buttons all the way down the train! This lovely gown also makes a beautiful bustle in the back when buttoned up! There is zipper in the back, and an internal waist band for support to hold up the 4 layers of skirts!
I am not sure the era, but the tag looks old fashion, and there is a sweet little vintage enamel heart, pinned on the inside of the bust! (something old something blue) :)
