This romantic georgette bridal dress is by high-end occasion designer Vera Mont. We've had several early pieces by this designer over the years and they never fail to disappoint, they're always really well made with quality fabrics and attention to detail in the design. This is a very typical mid to late 1970s bohemian design and is loosely based on Edwardian wedding dresses which came to define this period of romanticism within fashion.

The dress has a high ruffle neckline and the decolletage is trimmed with a double row of ruffles. It has long gathered sleeves with a buttoned cuff and elasticated waistline. Its floor length, full skirt is separated with a ruffled flounce toward the bottom hem. Fastening at the back with the original zipper; thread loops to the sides hold a long sash belt which can be wrapped around several times. It has three fabric covered buttons closing the top of the neckline. The bodice is lined whilst the sleeves and neckline have been left sheer. Such is the quality of the dress, there is a double acetate lining on the skirt portion which gives a real feeling of fullness.

In excellent vintage condition; no issues of any note. This ethereal design would make a fantastic understated wedding dress or could even be worn for the races paired with brightly coloured accessories. Made in what was Western Germany and labelled a vintage size 36; due to the waist measurement, the modern equivalent is now a UK size 8-10, US size 4-6.
