xxM1011M My beautiful wedding dress destroyed by accident.My beautiful wedding dress 1896 destroyed by accident ; This is the most beautiful wedding dress I have in my collection. I bought it at a New Year auction in 2005. Then it was in excellent condition. The following happened. I took it with me to a new apartment in 2006. It was lying in a box in plastic. I put the box on the sidewalk when I would open the car door . Then came a strong wind took hold of  the  dress and threw it into the air . The dress fell down in the street where it had rained The entire skirt got big spots and silk fabric had huge gashes .
However, the upper part with brussel lace is in excellent condition. The top is quite a sight with balloon arms and lots of handmade lace . It is made in the most exclusive silk. It has a typical corset waist and tight boned . It has twenty whalebone . The skirt is thin shiny silk and very large volume. The inner layer of the skirt still can be used. I'm thinking about buying silk and sew a new skirt by hand. The problem is that I can not find the right silk..  SOLD
