STELLA’S TRUE VINTAGE 1940’S 2-PIECE WEDDING DRESS

IMG_0937
This is the ensemble that Stella was wearing when I met her.  Remember the white satin 1940’s wedding pumps that I showed yesterday?   Wouldn’t they be just perfect with this dress, too!

A relatively modest choice for her wedding, the bride probably had this suit custom-tailored.  Naturally, it has many of the details popular then – shoulder pads, nipped peplum waist, a handkerchief hem and a rare coil metal zipper in the skirt.

But, some of the favorite classic features of a wedding gown are also present – rows of tiny, covered buttons and medieval-style points on the sleeve hems.  The fabric is a substantial brocade/jacquard floral – not a high-end textile, but nice.  Clearly, this wedding took place in a formal setting.

I wonder about her hair . . . . bridesmaids? Wouldn’t it be fun to go back as a guest? . . . . .
