plus size tea length wedding dresses
This mid-1930s cream stretch lace gown & jacket set is so special. The gown is sleeveless and has a deep back v design, below which the garment fastens with covered buttons. Flattering vertical seams and bias cut so fabric has stretch. Jacket fastens down front with covered buttons and has rows of these same buttons running from elbow to cuff for a subtlely dramatic effect. Pointed cuffs, little peplums, satin backed collars, gathered slightly puffed sleeves, and tiny shoulder pads add interest and shaping to the jacket. plus size tea length wedding dresses
My favourite element of this set is the lace's motif appear to roses and spiderwebs. Truly, it is an elegant yet glamorous example of Art Deco wedding design. I acquired the set from the daughter of the bride, so have a photo of the original wearer in the gown (first pic)

Condition: I'm impressed by how intact this set is, considering its age and composition. While the set is delicate, it is not fragile. It seems stable and very wearable, though a bit of extra care when wearing and storing is recommended.
Aside from a couple of invisible repairs to a couple of thread breaks and slight rust spotting on a few of the covered buttons, the only other aesthetic issues I note is a slight patina along the. Slight yellowing along back v-of the gown making the lace look a bit more antiqued, and a cluster of tea-colours rust spots near the back seat area of the gown. I spot treated these areas and was able to reduce their size and lighten them, but I didn't want to risk damage to garment by further rubbing, so am selling as presented.
Really, these areas are not glaring especially when the garment is worn and they don't affect the wearability of either piece. Still, I want to be thorough. Truly, this is a gorgeous and unique vintage set that is just waiting for an elegant
Modern bride to wear and cherish. Also a gorgeous set of garments worn separately.
