Dress Alterations

Can be taken in easily. Lace could be removed for a simple strapless dress - it would then be 100% light ivory silk. Jacket could be made out of lace? Waist could be moved higher and hem would move up to mid-calf. May be able to increase hem with lace?

Other Vintage Custom Made Dupioni Silk Wedding Dress Wedding Dress

Custom made dress by local professional wedding dress designer/seamstress - worn once - in what was probably a size 4 when it was made and may be a size 2 now? Professionally packed in keepsake box, and removed yesterday (see pictures on hangers). 

Dupioni silk for skirt and bodice under lace from waist up. Lined.

Color of silk is offwhite / light ivory, lace is white-white.

Sorry - the only pictures I have currently of someone wearing it is me 30 years ago! It needs to be pressed - if anything looks wonky in the photos, that is why. 

Happy to send more detailed pictures. But, unfortunately, I don't know anyone close to me who can model it during Covid and who would fit in it (no - I cannot still fit into my dress!)
