What followed was a long discussion with Mr N about why , when we are already married, I 'needed' another wedding dress, & why he needed to build said dress it's very own room.
Sounds like crazy person talk? Reserve judgment until you've seen this dress I say...
According to the website this breathtaking piece (seriously, I get a little breathless) which is currently in the Brooklyn museum is handmade bobbin & Pt de Gaz needle lace c. 1860-1870 (!) possibly a veil remade into wedding gown (!!!) c. 1940, has a fitted sleeveless bodice, full open-front, skirt w/ train & a cream underdress.
They neglect to mention that it is made by the fairies of awesomeness...
Can. You. Breathe.
- Sure, the measurments of 34/24 are likely to remain a thing of my pre baby past, but you couldn't risk wearing something as divine as this in any case so that's ok!
- The low estimate for auction is $1000 & the high estimate is $1500.
- THAT is what you call real crazy person talk people. I don't think it could possibly go for so little, it will be interesting to keep an eye on...
On a final note, if this jaw dropping gown is indeed a veil remade into a dress as suggested, can you even begin to imagine what the dress that went with the original veil looked like?
