Antique Edwardian wedding dress from the 1910s with alterations made possibly in the late 30s. This antique dress features beautiful lace inserts, floral embroidery, and ruching added at the hips (a motif often seen in 1930s dresses). This was mostly likely a grandmother's dress that a bride during the Depression era recycled for her wedding day. Faint discoloring along back neckline. Side snaps. Slightly elasticated waist. Sheer.

condition: excellent vintage condition, note slight discoloring along back neckline / dry cleaned but stain not treated, dress is cotton so with a little bit of bleach and gentle hand washing this may come out

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.
- Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
- Wear your garments more than once before laundering
- Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
- If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
- Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
- Spot clean garments immediately
- Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
- Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
