Other Vintage Wedding Dress

1980s pure silk beaded gown (xs/s) with raw silk lining. Bought this dress on Once Wed (I've posted the original seller's photos as well as my own since we have slightly different body types). She bought it from Shop Gossamer Vintage. Its a STUNNING gown – sadly it doesnt have the tag inside anymore – but it fits like a size 2/4.

The beading detail is GORGEOUS and it photographs stunning. Because its vintage, when I purchased it, it was missing sequence here and there, but you cannot tell in photos or really unless you were inspecting it - also, no beads or sequence fell off during my night of wearing it.

All hand beaded and from the 80’s. Has a slit in the back to show some leg. There's not a lot of give in the dress, so I'd look closely at the measurements!

Dress Alterations

This dress is heavily embellished, so I did not make alterations, and I don't think you'd want to try. Since its from the 80's it has slight batwing sleeves, which are gorgeous! However, I chose to put one safety pin on the inside of each armpit and it worked perfectly to narrow the batwing - couldn't feel it or see it, as you tell from the photos of my wedding.

Dry Cleaning/Preservation

The dress has no stains or odors and has been preserved in a garment bag in a non-smoking home.
