Vintage 1971 Bridal Wedding Gown With Detachable Train in Excellent Condition V3099-333

HOME

Vintage used bridal wedding gown. 1971.
 
Off-white vintage bridal wedding gown from another era, 1971.  I am guessing the inner gown fabric is a rayon acetate. It has a paper-like back. The back zipper is metal with a hook and sewn eye at the top. The trim is possibly cotton and has yellowed nicely. The appliques are white and they are glued on. The pearls between the appliques down the entire front center of the gown are sewn on. None are loose or missing.
 
The detachable train attaches with two hooks onto stitched eyes.  It is the same fabric as the underside of the gown without the paper back but only goes to the length of the gown skirt. Three flat net layers, one being shorter (the skirt length part of the train) and two are the full length of the train. 
This gown has a high collar, long full sleeves lined in tulle ending in a tight cuff with snap closure. The bodice above the underside of the gown is also lined in tulle.
 
The measurements for this gown being held flat are:
Bust:   17" Front seam to seam underarms
           16.5" Back seam to seam underarms
Waist: 14.5" front, doubled = 29"
Hip:  18" front,  doubled= 36" 
Length shoulder seam at collar seam to hem 54.5"
No size label. Possibly size 0.
 
The gown is exceptional for it's age. It is ready to wear with a slight pressing of the bottom of the train. The yellowing that gives vintage it's beautiful hue is just right...soft and even. The fabric has not lost it's crispness due to cleaning. There is a Garment Workers Union label sewn into the gown. I'm always excited to find one.
 
Gown is clean and unstained. No rips, tears or other defects found. Condition is excellent including taking into account the normal color changes in vintage wear and further enhancing it.
$199. Plus $20 Shipping and Handling
