This elegant vintage Edwardian wedding gown is made of lustrous silk satin and delicate silk lace. A 1912-1913 style, the fantastic bodice features a high bustline above a ruched midwaist. The center and neckline are edged in faux pearls. The sleeves are short, and the entire bodice is covered in delicate net lace. The balance of the dress is lustrously sleek satin. The gathered midwaist at back becomes a part of the closure, hooking asymmetrically. The skirt is split a few inches at each side, with decorative buttons at either side of the vent. The train is sleek and narrow, weighted with three heavy covered buttons.
This dress would ideally be worn with a corset of its era. This flattens the bust and creates a columnar shape with subtle curve - not as dramatic as the S curve of the earlier Edwardian era.

I am delighted to report that beautiful gown is very wearable, although of course, it should be worn with care. At the left underarm, the fine net lace has a two and a half inch repair. This is not so pronounced as to detract. There are two tiny spots just below the gathered waistband at the back. There are about seven small smudges or spots on the skirt - nothing significant. There is one small hole, probably a cigarette hole from the size, at the lower left-hand side of the skirt. This gown is spectacular and sophisticated. I find no other issues to note!
