  • THE STORY

    I got married in December 1970 in a winter wedding in Chicago, so I needed a dress that was warm and I would not have to wear a coat in the limo or walking outside. That’s why it’s heavy satin with a high round collar, long sleeves and a train. It is for a modest look by today’s standards. The bodice is appliqued with satin flowers and the waist is high; the sleeves have buttons at the cuff.

  • ALTERATIONS

    This dress was made by a tailor to my specifications. At the time I was a size 8. There were no modifications made once the pattern was sewn. The dress now is in perfect condition - no stains, dirt, tears, rips; not missing any of the fabric-colored buttons. No coloration anywhere on the ivory satin, not on the hem or under the arms. The satin was very expensive, which is why there has been no change to the fabric.

  • PRESERVATION

    My parents had the dress cleaned and boxed right after the wedding. It has been in storage in the back of a closet for 45 years in a closed box sealed in plastic. When I opened it last month to show my future daughter in law (who is getting married in the summer in California so this dress is way too heavy for her), I was amazed at how perfectly preserved it was. I have since returned it to the back of the closet in its box prior to sale.
