The Dress

I knew I wanted to wear a gown by Grace Loves Lace (GLL) to my wedding in January this year. I absolutely love the combination of designer French lace and Australian design, so I had been following their work for some time. However, when it came time for me to actually select and order one, I just could not find what I was looking for in their current range! I looked at a bunch of other designers and I just wasn't feeling them, so, I decided to write to GLL and ask if they had any leftover fabric from the out-of-stock Harriet gown (my long term favourite). It took them a little while to check whether there was enough to make a dress in my size, and there was! Just! I ordered the very last Harriet the same day and it was, as I had hoped, the most amazing dress to get married in.

When my gown arrived in Melbourne, it needed some significant adjustments to make it fit snuggly, and to flatter my figure. I used the highly reputable dressmaker Heather Sellick to make these adjustments over a period of weeks. It now has better breast support, slightly less bulk around the hips, and two finger-loops on the train for dancing.

All up, I paid $2900 for the gown and adjustments.

This dress will be perfect for anyone with a small upper frame. I am short (155cm) as well as small around the waist, but I wore some pretty intense heels (10cm)! The skirt is very flowy so it would work for anyone with a pear shape (like me) as well as someone who is quite petite all over.

I have had so many guests telling me, even months later, how much they loved my GLL gown. It has been described as "stunning", "classy", "beautiful", and "literally the perfect dress".

I had the most amazing wedding day. I loved every moment, and I hope the buyer of this gown will appreciate wearing this piece of art as much as I did. xo

Note: I have listed the gown at a reasonable price in the hope that doing so will encourage someone to buy second-hand rather than new. If I have one regret, it is that I did not work harder to reduce waste during my wedding planning. I should have looked at Still White! As such, I have thrown in my Tania Maras Wynter chapel length veil in ivory for free, which I think goes perfectly with the Harriet gown (see pics). It retails at $265.

* This is a ridiculous bargain now at $600AUD!

Alterations

Added subtle breast support (for size 10B); reduced bulk around hips, added 2 x finger-loops on the train for dancing.
