Edwardian Wedding Ensemble

Another beauty from my collection.............


The most exquisite silk and lace Edwardian wedding dress.  It has been stored away very carefully as it is in the most beautiful condition aside from a few little foxing marks.


The bodice has the most exquisite lace and pin tuck detailing, and the lace around the neck has stiffeners to help keep it upright.


I have carefully stuffed the sleeves with tissue to help keep the shape.


Even the back has the most beautiful detailing.


The wedding dress came with it's original wax flower bridal head dress, now very fragile.


and even the original kid leather wedding shoes.........


I am totally in love...but I may be good and part with it one day!
Have a great week.
