From the 1970s (1973 to be exact), a wedding dress with ornate cotton lace over deep olive-green.
- Sheer chiffon is smooth in front, gathered below the empire seam at back to create a subtle, flowing watteau effect (see photo).
- Olive green underlayer at empire bodice and cuffs.
- Daisy-chain embroidery trims the modified bishop sleeves and under the scalloped empire bodice.
- Acetate underlayer with horsehair trim and buckram lining for shape.
- Nylon back zip with top hook&eye.
