Tiny Tucks and Crochet Lace Mexican Wedding Dress Vintage 1960's Here's a charming white and cream cotton Mexican wedding dress, circa 1960 to 1970. The white dress is beautifully made and the work is a combination of fine vertical tucking and horizontal cream crochet lace. It has a lace trimmed neckline, full length sleeves gathered at the wrist with crochet lace trim and edging and hem with crochet lace finish. Closes with a zipper up the back. It has no size label, but its measurements are as follows: Please rely on these measurements for sizing. You should be smaller than the measurements as the dress is not meant to fit too tightly. Bust: 31" Sleeve length: 22" Shoulder seam to shoulder seam 16" across front Waist: 28" Hips: approx 50" (full skirt) Back length from neck to waist 16" Overall length: 53 ½” In excellent condition. No obvious flaws I can find. Clean and ready to wear. Very nice example of a true boho Hippie Chic wedding ethnic look dress. Cute for a prom or graduation. These were popular in the Washington DC area where I found it, sold at the Phoenix in Georgetown back in the day. Still gorgeous now!
