VINTAGE PAT SANDLER WELLMORE LACE SANTANA KNIT WEDDING DRESS
Wellmore is known for their santana knits very much like st. John knits - this lovely dress is in ivory or a light beige santana knit with off white or ivory delicate soft lace overskirt which floats over the knit - the shade of the knit is somewhat deeper than in the photos
It is very unique for a knit to have an overlay of lace but it is a beautiful combination - lovely scalloped lace on the overskirt hemline - sheer lace on the sleeves
For a glimpse of an arm - tiny little poof of organze for a bit of shaping on the shoulders which could be removed - elastic in the ends of the beautiful scalloped lace sleeves - back zipper - matching santana knit belt with loops
Just exquisite for a summer affair or an informal wedding dress

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
