1929 Wedding Dress

I have a great collection of vintage keepsakes and I want to share them with you.  My first post on this blog is a great vintage wedding dress of cream silk. The dress is sleeveless with a sort of smoking just below the hip area and the three layers of gathered fringe The original Lyle stocking remain with the dress but the veil shown is not original.  Over the years the dress was re-worn and some vintage flowers are were hand sewn to the dress.  The picture of the bride and the dress were given to me by Mrs. Dorothy Russell of Clarksburg Ontario
