YOU CAN BE A PRINCESS. This is a true princess dress but very tastefully done. It's a classic 1950's dress made of chantilly lace. The train consists of tiers of the lace and from the waist to the end measures 80. The front is the same and the top is very true to the picture.

The caps sleeves are sweet and their are the optional gloves. Underneath all the frill there is a heavy satin slip and there are "holders" to put the train up. I didn't attempt it as the dress is hard enough to handle and measure and photograph without doing that. I think the pictures are pretty good although difficult to photo as a whole because it didn't fit on my mannequin. Measurements are Bust 32" (not a lot of fullness there) waist 26", hips are under the full skirt so probably not an issue.

The shoulder to waist measurement is 15" and waist to hem is 44". I show the dress against a pure white bedspread in some of the pictures so you can see the color. I would consider it very white not ivory or faded at all. I see no damage and no soiling - it almost looks as if it was never worn. I bought it from an estate sale and was told it was made for the bride in New York City. It does have seams that could be let out a little but not a lot. I thought I had the veil and I will look again but I didn't find it with the dress so thinking I was dreaming.

Due to the beautiful detail of the back, I would think a very simple veil would be pretty or a headpiece of some sort. This was very difficult to photograph so if you need more pictures I can try again. The dress is in a wedding dress box so is oversized.
