Antique Victorian Silk Wedding Bustle Dress With Train~beads And Lace For Study For SaleWE WILL BE AWAY FROM TUESDAY JULY 23 THROUGH SATURDAY JULY 27 AND WILL HAVE LIMITED INTERNET ACCESS.
For your consideration today, we have a silk Victorian two piece wedding bustle dress this dress is so small, that I could not get in on my dress form. The bodice has a cross over front that closes with hooks and eyes. The opening is trimmed with a ruffle, lace, and tiny beads surrounding a pearl like stone. The sleeves are trimmed the same way at the cuffs. Above the lace trimmed ruffle in the front and back was a layer of sheer fabric with silk bands, the sheer part is gone. The neck area has the same bead and pearl trim, the lace is almost gone. The bodice has stays, is fully lined, and hooks to the skirt in the back. The skirt is really heavy, it is fully lined with a lace ruffle at the hem, and a train in the back. The dress displays nicely, but has condition issues. Besides the missing sheer on the bodice, there are some missing beads and pearls here and there, more at the neck and the sleeves. There is some wear spots on the silk here and there, the sleeves at the shoulders, the hem, and the dress has darkened over time. The skirt has a lot of wear near the waistband and the hem, one bad spot, that you can see in the pictures. The gauze looking fabric that holds the lace is somewhat brittle in spots and has some splits and tears. Even with all of the flaws, this is still a lovely display or study piece and the flaws are reflected in the low opening offer.Measurements with the dress laid flat are:TOP
