I absolutely adored wearing this dress and am struggling to part with it but it's been a year since our wedding now and it really just needs to be worn again. It's feminine and sexy, with a vintage feel and embroidery to die for... the train itself was enough to make me want it!
I wanted to have one look for the ceremony and another for the reception/photo's so I bought some matching lace and had some off the shoulder capped sleeves custom made. I also purchased the Rue De Seine 'Beau' Flared Sleeves to wear for our beach photos. These have an elasticated armband.
That means there are 4 options depending on how you would like to wear the neckline. The off the shoulder short sleeves and over the shoulder straps (that actually come with the dress) are detachable so it can also be be worn with no sleeves at all.
The dress is a size 8 and I usually take a large C or small D cup.
I am 164 cm tall and wore 13 cm heel with 4cm platform shoes (my hubby is 6 foot 4 so I needed some height!)
The lace on the bodice is a cotton blend. It is boned to the waist and has silk lining. The cups are slightly padded with underwire. The skirt is silk with spandex lining and the train is a soft toile with incredible floral detailing. The dress was surprisingly comfortable to wear and photographed beautifully. The dress has been dry-cleaned by Regal and is in near perfect condition.
If you happen to live in NZ then I would be happy to allow try-ons.
Please feel free to ask me any questions :o)
I had the dress hemmed and also had it taken in slightly to make it more fitting through the top of thighs. I had some of the lace on the bodice removed to stop it from bunching/creasing too much. I wanted it to be nice and flat against the body. There is also a wrist band attached to train.
As described above, the lace off the shoulder sleeves were also custom made for me.
I have all receipts from Megs Tailoring and Rue de Seine which I am happy to share.
The retail price I have listed is what I paid for the dress plus the Beau Sleeves and the extra amount I have spent on alterations and additions.
