1970s Organdy, Silk and Lace Liz Williams Wedding DressRegular price £750.00 Save £-750.00
This truly epic vintage wedding dress is absolutely exquisite. Made from sumptuous cotton organdy, it's floaty but has just the right weight for a luxurious hang. While it's undoubtedly a piece from the Edwardian revival of the 1970s, its Empire line cut in is also a classic design device of the time.
A high collar that gives way to an elegant V-neckline is trimmed with delicate cotton lace, and its breast and back panel are made from beautiful off-white raw silk. Likewise, its era-defining mutton sleeve gives way to a long, tight raw silk cuff that measures from the wrist halfway up the forearm. Its skirt is made from three organdy lace-trimmed panels to give it a tiered effect, and is lined with satin-effect viscose. It has a long integral sash that starts at the sides of the waist to tie at the back. It fastens with a hidden zip at the back: the covered buttons are purely for decoration, but demonstrate the designer's appreciation for comfort and ease-of-wear, while not compromising on traditional aspects of appearance. Hem is slightly longer at the back of this incredible vintage wedding gown to give a small puddle train.
Best fit: UK 6 (label is marked as a vintage size 10 - and note that we can't fasten it up properly on our mannequin!)
