Velvet Burnout Gown
Delicate custom vintage velvet burnout gown is perfectly understated. Sheer burnout fabric whispers across the body, with bust seaming for subtle shape. A high neckline is trimmed in pearlescent beadwork, and slim sleeves taper to a curved point. Velvet covered buttons and satin button loops line the back of the dress, calling to a time of dressmakers and buttonhooks. A wedding dress perfect for a low-key bride, or as a delicate summer day dress. Cream.
*Faint discoloration under both arms visible only at specific angles, not visible when on (pictured). Discoloration on nearly all buttons; noticeable (pictured). Right sleeve snap needs to be replaced (pictured). Slight wear to the neckline facing. Missing 1 button.
