Description:
This home-sewn wedding dress of satin features a wrap bodice and a v-neck. It also features a tie decorated with velvet and satin flowers. This dress is accompanied with a satin, floor-length slip and matching shoes 159737. After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the silhouette of women’s dresses changed. Dresses became longer and focused on hemlines several inches below the knee. Vertical seams, slanted pockets, and fur collars and cuffs were common among this style of clothing. Many of these dresses still cinched slightly at the waist but belts were normally contrasting colors. This wedding dress is significant to the collection because it is an excellent representation of the fashionable attire worn by women during this time period.
