Antique French White Communion dress transparent cotton gaze


Antique French Communion dress in white. Made of thin gaze cotton, this dress is so beautifully made by hand. 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: the cotton fabric is stiffer in some parts, a hole is present as shown in the last photo, a tiny red stain is present in the lower part of the dress. The dress was found in very bad condition, with yellow staining everywhere and the seams at one of the armpits were torn apart. I have carefully treated and removed the stains and sewn the armpit seams. None of those flaws are present anymore.

Best fits XXS, but please refer to measurements below for precise sizing:
Underarm seam to underarm seam 33 cm
Sleeve length 35 cm (diameter at the end of sleeve 16 cm)
Waist (from seam to seam) 32 cm
Full length 108cm
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.
