Product Description

Ultra-femme confection of sheer ivory crinkle cotton blend lavished with tiers of lace & satin trim, very romantic, perfect for a summer garden party on your estate, or as a wedding dress for a simple sincere wedding ceremony.

Girlie, romantic & expertly sewn, this Gunne Sax full length party dress features all the femme details for which now- retired designer Jessica McClintock was known ~ check the never-ending flourishes here.

Tiers of lace frame the face & are repeated at the hem; satin ribbon trim outlines the square neckline and acccents the waist; tiny "pearl" button closures accent the ends of semi sheer sleeves;  a bow tie finishes the back, and the materials used are arguably better than one finds in factory produced Gunne Sax items.   Created by an expert seamstress and perfectly matched--crinkle ivory cotton blend fabric, lace & satin ribbon, every detail in this lavish dress is expertly sewn and custom color matched.

Suggested modern size:  Small (U.S. 4-6) ~ As always with vintage, go by the actual measurements & compare yours carefully.

Condition & Details:  True vintage in very good condition.  Expertly crafted by a professional seamstress using Simplicity pattern 5362 by Jessica McClintock for Gunne Sax Wedding or Bridesmaid (copyrighted 1981, see last photo for pattern image.) Lined lace trimmed dress with square neckline in front, has front insert, gored skirt gathered to bodice above normal waistline, back zipper, and gathered sleeves.  Ribbon trim & lower ruffle, long sleeves with "pearl" button closures.  Expertly matched sheer ivory crinkle/pleated  fabric satin ribbon and lace, likely a cotton blend.  All seams are finished/serged.  Issues:  Minor all-over wear, hem of underskirt droops slightly, & very slight small stains to one sleeve that tend to be hidden in sleeve folds. No odors or tears.
