This beautiful evening length silk lace gown would make a lovely wedding dress if you don't want to be married in white. Alternatively, it would make a fabulous formal dress or bridesmaid's dress. Have it shortened to mid or lower calf length for after five or wedding guest. It has a high V neckline and gathered shoulders, fitted sleeves which extend to points over the top of the wrists where they close with press studs and a shaped yoke at the top of the skirt over the hips. The bias cut skirt flares out from the yoke. Closes at the side with a metal zipper. The original tie has been lost but I have added a satin ribbon. Totally sheer, you will need to wear a long nude or coffee slip. Delicate fabric, wearable with care.

Good condition. There are a number of very discreet mends in the lace, done with matching silk and hard to find. A couple of larger darns right on the hem, (see photo 5). There are a few small holes in the lace that just blend in with all the legitimate holes!
