20’s wedding dress

The Costume Museum of Canada is putting on a display this month of things attributed to the Eaton’s store.  I steamed out a wedding dress from the 20’s that has an amazing amount of detail for a store bought item!

It is a very fine fabric that would have been wonderfully cool for a summer wedding.

The collar has embroidery and tiny little tucks.

Those tiny little tucks are also on the back.

There are little tucks and bigger pleats and two little panels that are like little pockets.

The same tucks and pleats are on the back but minus the little pocket things.

There is a sash that I didn’t know about so didn’t photograph.  I liked it better without the sash.

Man, it is good to be back in the museum!
