A Rare Sight

Ashburton is a pretty little town in south Devon, it lies to the south east of Dartmoor National Park and is a former Stannary town. As well as it’s fair share of traditional shops, including an ironmonger, it has a lot of vintage and antique shops, expensive but intriguing.
I had a wander earlier in the week and found this wedding dress hanging in a charity shop. As soon as i saw this weeks challenge I knew this was my entry. It’s a pity I used my mobile, but you’ll get the idea.

My first thoughts were vintage late 1960’s, but an image search failed to confirm that, there wasn’t anything that risqué. Do you have any ideas? The lace doesn’t seem modern to me.

So this is my rare entry, do you have one to share?

  1. Intriguing Gilly ~ I’ve never seen anything like it! I’d have to take the circles out and wear a camisole underneath.to preserve my modesty ~ I’m thinking shell pink. I’m getting a 20’s vibe from it but I could be wildly wrong! 🤔

  2. Not very attractive at all, Gilly. I can’t imagine a husband waiting at the altar and loving the sight of his bride marching down the aisle in this creation. 😆 I see that Eliz mentioned Madonna. Yes, maybe her risqué style influenced the design. 🙂

  3. This should definitely win the prize for the Most Rare item presented in this challenge. I am in my 60’s and I have never seen anything like this. In lingerie, yes, but not in wedding dresses.

I would love to hear from you . . .
