This exquisite dress is from 1976

Worn by my sister once and was cleaned and preserved after the ceremony


Originally purchased from Bullock's Department Store which was headquartered in Los Angeles and catered to a luxury market clientele. They ceased operations in 1992.

This beautiful dress was featured in a magazine from 1976 but  we are still searching for the magazine and was hoping to find but it appears to have been lost

The dress features a empire waist and we were told  possibly alencon lace but I can't verify

The pattern is that of wisteria / grapes which would be perfect for a winery wedding 

Sheer chiffon lace

Neckline looks as if a keyhole design but there is  fabric so not an actual 'hole"

 3 button bustle in the back with two different loops for 2 lengths for bustle

Completely lined inside the dress

There is a slip that is included and shown in pic 12


This is wearable vintage and was altered as the tag is shown as well as the seam  to show that there is room to let out.

My best guess with final alternations that this is approximately a size 6 and the measurements are as follows with all measurements approximated

Shoulders 14 inches

Collar 2 inches

Breast 34 inches

Empire waist 29 inches

Slip that is enclosed has a control top zippered slip that is 40 inches long and 22 inches across

Waist to front hem 39 inches


There is a small spot on back  and may be others but two people checked thoroughly check pic 4

This was cleaned an preserved after the ceremony but due to the age of 40+ years there are several small holes that are insignificant to the beauty of the dress with the largest being less than 1/4 inch at the back of the train, but was told this is natural with age stated

I will be more than happy to send pictures of what I could capture and due  to the nature of this garment there are no returns so...
