Wedding Rhapsody in White

Behold! The most exquisitely intricate and beautiful item I have ever found for my shop: an impeccable 1900s-1910s white wedding gown with crocheted 3D flowers and raspberries.  In amazing condition and not a minuscule size!  SWOON! Some lucky bride is going to be a rhapsody in white on her wedding day!

I agree; an absolute stunner.I bet it's TINY too; that's why I don't bother with vintage clothing: hardly anything fits me (I am not big enough for "plus-size" but only just barely small enough to fit "large" regular sizes, and I'm not overweight, either, just tall and large framed) and it's just TOO DAMN FRUSTRATING.

That being said, I will remark that that Erte-style HAT you featured recently was FABULOUS. I would have thought "Erte" right away when I saw it, even if you hadn't already mentioned it! Great minds think alike!

My stars, this truly is a show-stopping, incredibly beautiful piece. I don't know if I could bare to part with it, no matter if it was my size or not. The wee little raspberries just melt my heart and make me yearn for a time machine back to the Edwardian era. Stunning find, dear gal, completely stunning!

Gosh what an incredible dress! I'd wear it every day of the week, forget needing to wed as the excuse! What size is it then?

Bust is 37, waist is to 32 or so! So at least a modern US medium!...the mannequin is a 37-27.5-36 and it fit with some room in the waist :)
