This is a beautiful dress from the 1930s and what my tailor dubbed a museum piece! The lace itself is so old that there are tiny breaks in it here and there, these are not noticeable when wearing and it is in perfectly wearable condition. No major holes but it would benefit from restoration and maybe a backing to strengthen - I just didnt have enough time to get it done before the wedding, but I can recommend some people who might be able to help.
The floral trim on the neckline and sleeves were added by me as the original had disintegrated. This is genuine Victorian Lace trim that belonged to my great grandmother and the glass buttons are from that era too. The sleeves are slightly marked and would benefit from being professionally cleaned. The original trim on the hem is close to disintegrating and will need to be replaced, I can include any leftover Victorian Lace. I was a UK 6 - 8 at the time of wearing.
Waist (stretchy) 24 - 28. Shoulder - hem at front 55. Due to the delicate nature of the fabric, I just cant risk this if it doesnt fit you so please make sure you read the listing carefully.
