Vintage 1960s Modernistic Wedding Dress with Train Ladies Size XS S Excellent


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful 60s era wedding dress featuring a very modern form, simple with clean lines.  The dress is made with a “jewel” neckline and long sleeves.  It has an empire waist, delineated by a panel that is decorated with rhinestones and cording.  The dress is made in an ankle length and has a longer train that is attached at the back under the waistline panel.  The dress does up with a metal zipper at the back and ten covered buttons with loops along the top back.  The cuffs closes with similar buttons.  The dress is unlined. 

Age: 1960s

Label: No maker’s label    

Color: White

Material:  A twill fabric that looks to me to be a polyester blend, but I’m not sure.  Good weight and appearance.

Sizing: No size is indicated, but it should fit an extra small size (note that it was too small for my mannequin, so I couldn’t button the back) - please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  14” across seam to seam

Sleeves:  20 1/2” from the shoulder seam

Sleeve inseam:  15 3/4”

Bust: 31” around, taken at the armpits

Waist: 25” around

Hips: 36” approximate - meant to fall loosely

Overall length: 52" at the front/66” at the back including the train

Condition: It is in very clean condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors. There is one rhinestone missing and there are some snaps on the interior neckline, so I guess that there had been a collar that would attach there, but is missing.  Otherwise, this dress looks like it saw one use and was well cared for over the years.

This is a wonderful 60s era wedding dress - modern style that would still work today without anyone knowing that it is a vintage dress!
