Amazing candlelight satin early-1950s long-sleeve wedding gown with collar. It sits at the natural waist and has a beautiful full skirt and long train. The fitted sleeves end at a point on the hand and close at the wrist with snap fasteners. The bodice is cut in a V shape at the waist and it is ruched at the sides. There is a wonderfully large bow at the back waist and it buttons up the centre back with covered buttons and loops. A collar drapes from the shoulders and is embellished with cord embroidery and beadwork, creating an illusion round scoop neckline. Above this, is a sheer tulle section before it finishes at the neck with a pointed collar. Includes shoulder pads. Unlined.
