img_1315img_1314 Beautiful!  This vintage dress is most likely dupioni silk, although there was no tag to indicate.  I measure this as a size 6, and it fits the size 6 mannequin almost perfectly!  Measurements are approximately 32 bust, 26 waist, and 35 hips for the dress.  This beautiful gown features whiteappliques over a sheer layer and ivory silk (?).  Lower back zips close, and upper bodice fastens by nice, covered buttons.  This dress is in great condition, but I would suggest having it dry cleaned before wearing, unless you plan to cut off a couple of inches of length, because there is some dirt along the hemline from being tried on/worn.  This dress is a bargain at $129.00!  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!

img_1211This vintage dress is divine and reminds me of something vintage, although isn’t that old.  Has beading all over, and would pack extremely well for a destination wedding.

I took this out of the box and hung it up and the wrinkles fell out immediately.  I’m offering this size 14 dress for $149.

The lining has some stretch to it, so it possesses some forgiveness on the fit!  Forgiveness is so nice!  Measures about 39″ at the chest.  As always, contact sherry_george@comcast.net to inquire or purchase!

img_1193img_1194The front is a tank style, scoop neck, with rhinestone accents on the straps by Aspeed and is considered a Large, however look at the measurements below for more accuracy.  I’m offering this dress for $79.  It was worn for one occasion and then cleaned.  The dress falls straight to the floor with a slit up the front left leg.  Scoop back with hook/zipper closure.

The material is unique and amazing on this dress.  It is an embossed lace overlaying a glittery silver lining.  As you move, everything shimmers.  This would be a great dress for a designation wedding because it would pack well without too much wrinkling.  I hung it up after receiving it and the wrinkles just fell out immediately!  The lace is white/ivory tones. img_1195

Bodice is fully lined in white under the silver, to make sure that nothing shows.  The dress straps are wide enough to probably wear a regular bra.

Dress Lace: 35% Polyester, 65% Rayon.  Lining: 50% Nylon, 50% Polyester.  Style #9103-E  Cut #3061-01.  Hand wash only with cold water, no steam iron.

img_11911img_11912This vintage wedding dress is from the House of Bianchi and dates to the 1960’s.  I’m pleased to offer this stunning dress for $109. The beads and sequins are sewn on.  Boston’s House of Bianchi went out of business in 2001 but was previously considered a premier maker of beautiful, elegant custom dresses.  In fact, Courtney Cox(Monica) wore a House of Bianchi wedding drimg_1192ess on the TV show Friends when she married Chandler in 2001. It is rare to find a dress that is both a small size but long enough for a tall woman.

The bustline measures 34″ and the waistline measures 26″.  According to size charts, the dress would be considered a size 4-6.   From the shoulder to end of hem, the dress measures a lengthy 58″.  A shorter woman could, of course, easily have this dress hemmed.  The dress is a soft ivory shade.

The dress is in wonderful condition.  The front of the dress is fitted and adorned with lace covering the chest.  The back of the dress is cut much lower, but not to the waist. The sleeves are voile in the wispy, butterfly style.

There are three layers to the full skirt: voile, netting and fabric.  The beads are tiny cultured pearls(man-made) and sequins are sewn into the lace flower centers.  The style is the classic princess design and is exceptionally flattering.  This dress cost several hundred dollars in the early 1960’s and is easily today still an heirloom item to be passed through generations.  Contact sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!

img_1118img_1119Another vintage find!  This one has all the qualities of a very old dress, with the lacey bodice, juliet-type sleeves, empire waistline, high victorian-style neckline, and long, flowing train edged in lace.   However, it is in excellent shape.   Be sure to click on the pictures to see more detail.  I’m offering this dress for $109.  I believe the 26″ waist means it’s between a 6 and 8.  However, it was too snug on my size 8 mannequin to close at the bust and hips.  I would say it’s closer to a six in “bridal speak”.  The fabric is unique in that it’s not the typical satin.  It feels like a crepe.   I’ll try to dig out more information and add it later.  This dress has lots of possibilities for a Victorian-style ceremony.  Nice soft ivory color.

As always, for questions, to set up an appointment, or to order, contact sherry_george@comcast.net!

img_1117A vintage wedding dress offers the possibility of uniqueness without the hefty pricetag.  This dress could be perfect for a garden or beach ceremony.

This ivory dress by Jessica McClintock is a size 4 and features allover lace and a sweet chiffon train that is topped by beautiful chiffon fabric roses.

I’m offering this vintage wedding gown for $89.  The dress is considered full length,  but keep in mind that is a pre-owned and may be a little short if you’re very tall.  This dress would be just as attractive tea-length.  The bust measurement is 34″, however it fits my 4-6 mannequin, so it’s a roomy size 4.

img_1111img_1116This lace is some of the softest I’ve felt.  The necklace and slip underneath aren’t included, however adding a special “something borrowed or something old” such as a necklace would be a fabulous touch!  Contact me at:  sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!img_11131
