The Dress

Hi!

I'm selling this gorgeous Berta gown, style number 17-102, that I wore for only 4 hours at our wedding brunch in NYC in October 2018 (this was my second wedding dress; we had a destination wedding and I had a separate dress for that!)

This gown is a true showstopper and is boldy sexy and effortlessly elegant at the same time. The dress has an extreme off-the-shoulder neckline, with a form-fitting mermaid silhouette, hand embroidered floral lace, delicate flutter sleeves, and subtle polka dot details. The back is truly spectacular, with a beautifully boned, semi-sheer corset and a dramatic train that sweeps around in a beautiful and ultra-feminine arc.

Alterations

This is a Berta size 38, but I had it altered to fit my US size 4 body. My measurements are 34D, 27 inch waist, 36 inch hips. In addition to having it hemmed for my height (5 feet 9.5 inches with heels on), I also had my seamstress use extra Berta fabric and lace (taken from the dress itself during the hemming process) to create beautiful scalloping that makes the chest area a little bit more modest. She matched the lace floral material exactly to the existing lace on the bodice, so that this alteration looks seamless. I think it really enhanced the dress, but this piece could be removed by your seamstress if that was your choice. The gown came with a hidden built-in pencil skirt piece of fabric underneath the skirt that helps everything lay completely smoothly. My seamstress also added a hidden fabric loop under the train of the skirt which allows you to gracefully hold the skirt up in your hand while you walk around your reception.

My husband absolutely loved this dress and said it was stunning and sexy. So many of our guests complimented it and asked who the designer was. It’s a truly unique style and I think it’s impossible not to feel like a beautiful bride in this gown!

If you’re in the NYC metro area, we can arrange a time for you to try it on. Please feel free to message me with any questions you have. Thanks so much for looking!
