Description:
This satin wedding dress has a lace overlay over the bodice. The fitted point sleeves, which are sleeves that taper to a point that rests at the back of the hand, are made of unlined lace and have cloth covered buttons at the cuff. The dress has a tulle yoke and darts can be seen around the bodice. The bodice has a basque waist and closes with cloth covered buttons along the back. The skirt is gathered at the waist. One key feature that indicates this dress is from the 1950s is the new look silhouette, which was created by Christian Dior and displays a wasp waist and a full skirt. This style of dress was the most iconic of the 1950s.
