~ ANTIQUE 1915 FRENCH EDWARDIAN CHIFFON & SILK Alencon Lace VINTAGE BRIDAL GOWN ~
FABULOUS ivory-colored silk & chiffon bridal gown in exquisite Edwardian fashion.
The delicate French Art Nouveau Edwardian style and delicious Needle-lace with the fine sheer gauzy effect of the chiffon and intricate silk detail -- captivate this incredible fashion statement in magnificent Edwardian couture style, design and finesse.
An elegant simplistic design of silk and chiffon luxuriousness and opulence in a late Edwardian Bridal Gown approximately 1912-1917.
The bodice is an underlay of fine netting with a candlight chiffon overlay. On each side of the torso are vertical layers of ivory-silk that shimmers with magnificent grandeur. The center front has a divine layer of French Alencon Needle-lace (see photo #5) emphasizing the front and flutters with delicate feminine flair. On each side and tucked under the lace is a 1" band of chiffon. Circling the waist is a cummerbund of the ivory-silk that is so typical of many styles during the late Edwardian Era. The inner waistband has a wide cotton gross-grain band for comfort. There are 7 hook-and-eyes that enclose the garment interior and a overlap of silk fabric with 4 snaps for exterior enclosure (all are present).
The candlelight chiffon sleeves are splendid in finery with sheer delicacy, have a 3" semi-ruffled layer, and ending with a 5" French Needle-lace cuff. The Needle-lace has a soft feathery touch it is so fine and exquisite.
The beautifully cut silk skirt with chiffon overlay edged in 2 1/2" bands of ivory silk adds dramatic flair to the style. The skirt other than the double layered silk banded chiffon is wisely left unadorned, emphasizing the substantial quality of the delicate sheer chiffon. The layers of chiffon flounce with graceful form. The under-layer of silk satiny fabric flows downward from under the layers of chiffon ending with the ivory-silk and a 4" silk hem - appearing as a dramatic deep layered band of the ivory-silk (see photo #14). The back of this divine bridal gown has an 18 inch tail of ivory-silk fluttering down from the cummerbund for added detail.

You will not find an exquisite French Edwardian Bridal Gown of this quality, condition, nor this low of a price.
NOTE: I saw one 1cm spot near the front on the chiffon, but so faint it is not noticeable at all. It may be gently attended to at your discretion. There is a tiny 2cm break in the lace on one of the sleeves. I also saw a teeny minor 1cm hole in the chiffon ruffle, although when I went to look for it again I could not find it - so it really is nothing at all if you have to search for it! These minor vintage age flaws are virtually NOTHING considering the age of this immaculate near MINT condition Edwardian Bridal Gown!
I acquired this lovely gown about 10 years ago from an antique textile dealer in France.
