The Dress

This dress is exquisite and very comfortable, easy to move and dance in and makes you feel like the most special person in the room, from the Karen Willis Holmes LUXE collection. It has a wonderful shimmer to it with the head to toe beading and sequins.
This wedding gown features a stunning bodice with hand-beaded corset panel lines and beautiful floral detailing, with a signature bias cut skirt and scattered sequins, offering both supreme fit and comfort. It is finished off with a fine beaded belt. The fit of this dress is that it looks like a tailored dress, but by beading the sequins onto the bias cut skirt, this dress has flexibility in the fit and to accommodate different body shapes. Because of the flexibility in the dress it should reduce the amount of alterations needed. Due to a little weight from the sequins, it allows the dress to skim the body in a figure flattering way, without making it heavy to wear.
This listing also comes with the stunning Genevieve overlay skirt, made of silk Georgette, which beautifully draped over the hips, creating a soft, romantic finish to the dress. I loved it because it meant that I could have an 'outfit change' or reveal, part way through the wedding. I wore the overlay for the wedding ceremony and photos, then I took it off to reveal the full beauty of the beading for the meal and dancing. As the Addison dress is very sleek and fitting, I loved the look that it gave in the evening and for dancing, and the softness of the overlay for the church.

I purchased this dress in a boutique in the UK in 2019 with my wedding at the end of 2019. The dress was in near perfect condition at the end of the day. However I have had it professional dry cleaned. There are a couple of very tiny holes in the hem. These are unnoticeable, but they are also easily fixed.

This is honestly the most beautiful dress. I spent months visiting multiple dress shops and trying on everything from over style. This dress feels incredible and special, as well as comfortable and flattering. It has a great balance to it with the tulle straps and the overlay skirt. It is brilliant in all weathers as well. I got married in October in the UK and I never seemed to be too hot or too cold, which was amazing. It would also work well for a summer wedding. Such a great find and such amazing detail and work that has gone into the beading and the cut of the dress, with a beautiful soft silk on the inside, it also has a great shape around the bum area.

Alterations

- I have had the dress taken up slightly. It measures 165cm from the top of the shoulder to the ground at the front and longer at the back, with the train.
- I had a wonderful seamstress who, instead of adding a bustle, devised a very clever and easy to follow popper system, where you popper the train up inside the dress, so that it is not seen and isn't dragging on the floor. This allowed my to keep the dress clean and in perfect condition.
- I have also added beautiful tulle straps, however these can easily be taken off and the original spaghetti straps are underneath.
- There are a pair of bust pads in the dress for shape, however these are also easily removed.
- I have all of the original material and spare beads, so alterations can easily be made.
- The dress has been taken in very slightly at the waist. I have added my measurements above, the dress has a good amount of give in it.
