Style: D1787 Sheath Ivory Lace & Tulle over Cafe Lustre S

The Story

Featuring dropped-waist lace detailing and a scalloped sweetheart neckline and hem, this beautiful vintage-inspired dress with its rich fabrication falls elegantly to the ground and into an understated train. With its straight lines and body-hugging shape, this versatile, sheath-styled wedding gown from the Essense of Australia collection is perfect for the beach and beyond.

This style has since been discontinued and they had several variations of the same dress in different colours. This one is the 'Ivory Lace and Tulle over Cafe Lustre Satin'. It is very warm in appearance and made my skin glow compared to the other dresses that I tried. We had an autumnal country wedding surrounded by the rich yellows, golds and reds of late autumn and this dress was perfect. It was advertised as a beach dress and it is certainly light enough for a beach wedding.
I'm a standard size 12 and this dress fit me like a glove. The back is fastened with a zip and covered with crystal buttons and there is also an internaI 'corset strap' to keep it in place. It is not heavy and cumbersome and the train does lift up into an unobtrusive bustle. Special underwear is not required.

I was able to move with ease throughout the day, eat as much cake as I wanted and also danced the night away without any desire to change out of this dress. It was so beautiful, I felt so beautiful in it and I loved every minute that I spent in it. It's no point stowing it away in a dark cupboard if someone else out there could get the same amount of joy out of it that I was lucky to experience.

I purchased this dress from Alma J Bridal in Mr Eden, Auckland in mid-2017. Other than to lift the hem slightly, no other alterations were made. I am 1.68m in height and wore a wedge heel 7cm high.
The dress has been drycleaned and is in excellent used condition. There are no tears or pulls.
It does come with spagetti straps which I didn't use.

Alterations

The hem was lifted. No other alterations.
