Victorian Peachy Silk Wedding Gown w Long Train /Ruching & Ruffles SmThis beautiful victorian gown is made from a very soft, light peachy silk. The front is ruched diagonally and it has rows of silk ruffles as well as ivory lace ruffles. ]There's a wide ruched ruffle along the edges of the front that continues down around the long train. The skirt is on a waistband, the back has box pleats in the center. The skirt is interlined with cotton and there's a gauze fabric, this gauze fabric is in poor condition and should be cut out. The skirt is overall in good condition, it has some small scattered holes in the ruffles and lace, a few small light spots and the silk covering the narrow yoke is mostly gone, just cut it away and use the cotton, it would be fine and there's some worn areas to the silk right under the bottom of the yoke, a tear on the bottom of the lowest ruffle and the lace edging on the inside lining ruffle is loose for quite a bit, but that's on the gauze fabric that needs to be taken out. It measures 26 inches around the waist, hips are full, it's 40 1/2 inches long in front and 87 1/2 in back. The bodice is lined in cotton and lightly boned. It buttons in front with pretty cut steel buttons, 1 is missing under the lace ruffle at the neck and 2 others are similar but not a match. The back hangs in long points with looped silk ribbons attached to the points. The underarms are damaged, the upper sleeves have splits, worn on the bottom fold, a few small holes on the body, sleeves have holes and tears, lace ruffle has some small breaks and a long tear where it came away from the neckline, it should be OK just to take it up, if it's a tiny bit narrower than the rest it won't matter. The dress was taken sometime in recent history to the cleaners. Bodice is 33 1/4 inches, waist is 24 1/2 inches and it's 24 inches long from shoulder to bottom of center front point.
