The Dress


This Essense of Australia bridal gown masterpiece is a sheer vision. A soft, barely off-the-shoulder neckline is held in place by ivory illusion tulle before following into an ornate pattern of richly beaded lace detailing that flatters and sculpts the shape—varying in opacity as the sheer side panels cut into the narrowest part of the waist. The fitted silhouette of stretch crepe is smooth and effortless, making for a dress style that is as striking as it is easy to wear. These strong lace patterns make their way onto an extraordinary floating keyhole detail, for an otherworldly wedding dress design that is simply breathtaking. Fabric-covered buttons run the length of the skirt as it extends into a sheer, scalloped lace dream come true.

As a "COVID bride" I was disappointed that this dress did not get as much use since we had a small intimate wedding- however my loss is your gain! This dress is in EXCELLENT condition post-dry cleaning and will be shipped to you in a new bridal bag, ready to hang and wear out of the bag if you wish!

Happy to send additional photos or receipts as needed.

Note: Designer website photos picture a woman with her hair down. In my personal photos I have an updo!


Notes on the alterations:
I spent $647 in alterations at a high quality seamstress for only a few key alterations!
1. Hem was brought up for my 5'6" height plus 3 inch heels --> 5'9" total height brushing the floor.
2. The top of the shoulders were taken in since they came with excess fabric- I still had plenty of room for hugs and lifting my arms!
3. Traditional bustle

Otherwise, the entire dress is as it was brand new and ready to wear if you have the same measurements as me! I also fluctuated in weight 10-15lbs from initial alterations to the wedding (135-137# at fittings, 123# on wedding day #anxiety), and since the crepe is so forgiving it was not even a problem!

NOTE: THIS dress was custom ordered in IVORY illusion from the designer, which was perfect for my lighter skin tone and to create that timeless look! The typical stock dress has a darker, tan colored illusion (the sheer fabric on shoulders and around waist).
