This beautiful vintage lace, cocktail length wedding dress and matching bolero came to us in a pretty sad state. Both pieces were severely yellow with a large oxidized stain on front of the skirt, and small oxidized stains elsewhere. This wedding dress has a zipper on the left side, with a scalloped neckline in the front and back.

We gave this heirloom wedding dress some of our expert tender loving care. We cleaned it by hand and restored it’s original color with a chemical restoration bath. Both pieces responded beautifully and this wedding gown can now be worn again and another generation will love and cherish it.
