There’s something about velvet that turns practically anything into a heirloom piece. I especially love when it’s paired with a vintage wedding dress and millinery flowers. I believe the velvet sashes below are vintage too, and they would look equally stunning on a brand new dress with a soft, dreamy tulle skirt…

    I am in love with that first dress pictured! Can someone please tell me how it would be described? Is it 50’s?

  • Thanks so much for all the lovely compliments about our collection!

    Betsy: Here is the info on that dress. It is also featured on our site: http://www.millcrestvintage.com/1950Â’s-custom-vintage-ribbons-wedding-dress-p-121.html

    1950’s Custom Vintage Ribbons Wedding Dress

    This Custom Vintage Ribbons Wedding Dress is a real one-of-a-kind made of the softest white netting with a matching satin under-layer and embroidered chiffon over- layer on the bodice. The strapless bodice has a sweetheart neckline, is covered in floral embroidery and adorned in the front with two small ribbons. The full skirt flows from the waist, and is adorned with tiny ribbons all along the skirt, which falls in two lengths. The dress fastens up the left side with a metal zipper and we have accessoriezed this gorgeous dress with a deep green velvet ribbon sash (not included). Though wonderful for a wedding, would also be dynamite for prom or other special occasion. We recommend that this dress be cleaned by a professional dry cleaner.

  • Thanks Amanda for this great post! I love vintage style and everything that has to do with it. Those velvet sashes are truly wonderful.

    “The velvet sashes below are vintage and and I believe they come with the vintage dresses”

    Don’t count on it. I bought a gown at Mill Crest and she tried to charge me $125 for a satin ribbon sash. Even though the dress I was buying (for a pretty penny) clearly had belt loops meant for a sash.

    It was a ribbon.

      Hi “M”,

      That’s my bad, and I edited the post with the correct wording. Each dress description will note if the sash is included.

  • M

    No problemo, Amanda. I would’ve assumed the same thing, too!

    P.S. I adore this blog… which is why I was far enough back in your archives to see this post. Please excuse my brashness.

  • Amanda, thank you for revising the post. I can understand the bit of confusion. The reason why we show the sashes in our images of the dresses on our site is to accessorize and offer options on how the dresses can be worn. We also accessorize with jewelry, corsages and petticoats. We do indicate in each description whether or not the accessories are included with the dress.

    M- I apologize for any misunderstanding. It is very important to us that each bride enjoy their experience at Mill Crest Vintage….as they are honoring us with choosing a dress from our collection for one of the most important days of their lives. If you are still in need of the sash to go with your dress, I will gladly mail it to you with my complements.

    Thanks again Amanda for all your help!! We too LOVE your blog!! XOXO
