Product description

Amazing find

Photograph of the dress being worn at its wedding in Torquay
Full length. long sleeved lace dress over polyester under dress

Long length white chamois leather buttoned gloves a small tear at base of thumb.
As you would expect from a dress of this age, it is showing its age, with a number of brown age spots and a few holes in the lace.

68 cm around waist
86 cm around bust
40 cm underarm
129 cm from neck to back hem
101 cm from waist to back hem

A truly remarkable dress, with a great history.
