Antique French white Communion dress hand embroidered transparent cotton gaze


Antique French Communion dress in white. Made of thin gaze cotton, this dress is so beautifully made by hand, with gorgeous hand embroidery details and lace incorporation. It is very delicate and extremely fragile, so it is best advised to hand wash it softy with a mild soap without rubbing it hardly. Due to its age, small imperfections are present: very tiny holes in some areas where two pieces connect, last top button is missing but it does not really matter as there is the collar button at the same spot that hides it. The collar is half removable, you can see in the video how beautiful it is and how delicately it needs to be handled.

Best fits XXS-XS, but please refer to measurements below for precise sizing:
Underarm seam to underarm seam 39 cm
Sleeve length 39 cm (diameter at the end of sleeve 18 cm)
Waist (from seam to seam) 39 cm
Full length 106 cm
Since the fabric is thin, it is not recommended to try to stretch it to fit in.

Typically, vintage clothing are garments at least 20 years or older. Buying vintage means you are purchasing something that it is pre-loved, pre-worn, and pre-stored so normal signs of wear and age should be expected. Items are cleaned and ready to wear. All imperfections are noted as accurately as possible. I'm picky, but I’m human and may miss something. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I love to help my customers find the perfect piece.
