1955 Vintage Priscilla of Boston Wedding Dress
This dress defines timeless. This was my mothers dress which she purchased and wore in 1955. I wore it in 1985 as seen in photos. I also have photos of my mother in the dress. The color is ivory. The bodice of the dress is rembroidered lace and the skirt is lovely douppioni silk. The gloves are original and also douppioni silk. The veil I had made. At the time I wore the dress I was 5′6″ and about 120 lbs so I would say by today’s standards the size of the dress is a 4-6. It was cleaned and sealed after my wedding and is in excellent condition.
I have searched the internet for a like dress found nothing that comes close to it’s elegance. Dresses like this one stay in the family and get worn again and again.
