IRISH LACE ANTIQUE WEDDING  DRESS.  I PURCHASED THIS DRESS IN 1966 IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER

 AT BUTTERFIELDS AUCTION.  THEY WERE SELLING A MAJOR ESTATE AND THIS DRESS WAS INCLUDED.  I WAS TOLD IT WAS WORN BY AN OPERA

 SINGER IN THE 1890'S FOR HER WEDDING.  IT IS A PLUS SIZE SO PLEASE CHECK THE MEASUREMENTS.  I STORED THIS IN A COTTON BAG UNTIL THE

1980'S WHEN MY DAUGHTER MARRIED.   IT WAS MUCH TOO LARGE AND I PUT IT AWAY AGAIN UNTIL NOW.  I KNOW THERE IS SOMEONE IN THIS

WORLD THAT WOULD TREASURE THIS WONDERFUL ORIGIONAL COTTON LACE GOWN.  THE FLOWERS, LEAVES, ETC, SEE PICTURES, ARE THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL I HAVE EVER SEEN.  I HAVE BEEN A COLLECTOR OR 60 YEARS.  I HAVE COLLECTED ADDITIONAL IRISH LACE TO ADD TO A VEIL.

WILL LIST THOSE ITEMS WHEN I SELL THIS DRESS.  THERE ARE 2 LONG PIECES THAT MATCH THE QUALITY OF THIS LACE.

SEE PICTURES.  I AM NOT GREAT AT PICTURES SO LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED MORE DETAIL.

NECKLINE IS LOW IN FRONT.  THERE IS ADDITIONAL ROOM FOR LARGER BREAST.

BACK IS CLOSED WITH 14 TINY BUTTONS MADE OF LACE YARN.

THIS DRESS HAS NEVER BEEN ON A HANGER BECAUSE OF THE WIDE NECKLINE.  PICTURES ARE TAKEN LAYING FLAT FOR THAT REASON.  I CUT A

LINER FROM A SHEET TO SHOW THE LACE DETAIL.  I HAD CONSIDERED A COTTON UNDER DRESS FOR ADDITIONAL LENGTH.

THE PRICE REFLECTS AN APPRAISAL I HAD IN THE 1980'S.  I COULD SEE THIS DRESS ON QUEEN VICTORIA OF ENGLAND.

MEASUREMENTS LAYING FLAT SO THERE WOULD BE SOME STREACH IF NEEDED:

LENGTH FROM  SHOULDER TO FRONT HEM:                 56 INCHES

LENGTH FROM SHOULDER TO BOTTOM OF TRAIN:      71 INCHRS

WIDTH OF HEM LINE:                                                    135 INCHES

SLEEVE LENGTH OUTSIDE:                                      23 1/2 INCHES SLEEVES ARE GATHERED AT TOP

SLEEVE LENGTH INSIDE:                                               20 INCHES
