This truly is a once in a lifetime dress once owned by Clementine Churchill, wife of Winston Churchill.


I have photographs of the dress before the beadwork was lifted off the original dress then adorned on this modern re-structure. Plus I have the remains of the original dress which I will include.


Set onto a pure silk bias cut dress, the back being a very deep V to the waist and the sides cut away with illusion net to secure the dress.


This dress would be a fabulous wedding dress, knowing the history attached to such a piece.

Should be worn by a person with a small bust as there is no support.  Fully lined.


Main dress is pure silk Morocain, bias cut. 


Model 5ft 5in

Size 8/10 UK

Waist to train hem 62.5" 1m 2.5
