Ethereal bridal gowns from the early 20th century are perennial favorites and this one is a wedding show-stopper. The garment's effortless style is so modern; the intricate hand embroidery and fine fabrics are a treasure trove of couture needle art. This beauty, fashioned in a light-weight ivory crème silk satin, is also mixed with lavish net lace and sensational silk tulle. I love the way these antique textiles come together in such a magnificent way. The semi-sheer net lace goes down the front so you can either wear a slip, bodysuit or unique lingerie to create your own modern look. The ultra flattering slight empire bodice has elegant short sleeves. The exacting perfection of the fringed detail is beyond compare, while the dramatic back train has such magical allure. We needed to add many detail images so one can appreciate the masterful achievement. This museum quality gown resonates powerfully today, not only because of its intrinsic beauty, but also because it is an important aesthetic artifact from well over 100 years ago. The pictures say it all.

This antique Edwardian couture bridal dress is in beautiful wearable condition with no serious damage. The garment slips over the head with numerous metal snaps and hook/eye closures down the backside. Only sign of wear are some darkening to the fabric from age and a few spots which do not at all detract from the gown's beauty. Please message for detailed pictures. A true work of art.
