Vintage wedding gown 1920s silk for study restoration

This is a beautiful vintage wedding gown from the 1920s fashioned of a silk charmeuse. The gown has a net appliqué lace yoke of a Brussels lace appliqué. The gown has rushing at the waistline and a side snap closure. There is a netting ruffle that drapes down the front and goes all around the dress.

Condition: The silk on this dress is actually very strong and can be worn. The problem area is the netted yoke which is fragile and will need replacement. The netted ruffle has a silk charmeuse piping at its edge and it has torn away from the netting.... you would have to hand stitch it back to the netting. The dress has no perspiration staining and no deterioration. There are 2 small stains on the surface of the front. I do not know if they would remove. The dress is a classic 1920s design and would be a fabulous piece for study, as not many gowns have survived from this period. It may very well be possible to restore this beauty.

Color: Ivory

Size: Laid flat armpit to armpit across the bust is 18-1/2". Shoulder to shoulder across the back measures 16"
