The Dress

Oh my beautiful Ellis Bridals Napoli. What a dream dress!

As you can see, I customised my dress, adding sleeves, after searching long and hard for a dress that I loved with. A fantastic seamstress named Sahra Vass, who has worked on wedding dresses for over 20 years did a wonderful job, and somehow improved on perfection. If you wanted to remove them it would be oh so easy, and wouldn't damage the dress.

The dress is made of duchesse satin, which has an overlay of tulle and a satin waistband, studded with pearls and sparkly bits. Satin buttons (with a simple zip fastening) run all the way down the dress, from the top to the toes. The dress had an inner corset so even I (DD) did not need to wear a bra!

The dress made me feel like Grace Kelly, and I adored swishing around on the dance floor in it. Everybody marvelled at it, it is a dress that makes people gasp and will not date - it is truly timeless, and I felt like a princess. It is also very light to wear.

Other than the much sought after sleeves, I simply had the dress taken up and in to fit me, this dress could be altered to fit sizes 12-16 (UK street sizes). I also had a button strengthened on the back so that I could hook my dress up for dancing (see dancing pic!)

The dress has only been worn once on my wedding day, after which I had it professionally dry cleaned by the famous Beach Road Dry Cleaners in Littlehampton at a cost of £85. It looks as good as new.

There are some minor tears at the very bottom of the tulle overlay - to be expected after a day of dancing! I have not attempted to repair these as the next lucky owner can simply have the tulle overlay trimmed to their height and they will disappear.

FYI: My height is 5ft 5.5, bust size 38DD, UK size 14.

Thank you for looking, I am very much of the opinion that the dress should live on and find its next joyous day.

The dress is sold as seen. Serious buyers only please.
