The Dress

This dress is a complete 1 off. I had it designed from scratch by an incredible lady, who sadly does not make dresses any more.

The fabric is a silvery blue roughed silk. All the silver embroidery on the bodice and on the over skirt is hand sewn. There are 6 tulle petticoats and a hooped fabric under skirt. Though the dress is in no way heavy, and the hoops make it really easy to walk around in.

The attention to detail is amazing, With everything trimmed around the edges so nothing is scratchy or uncomfortable. The train hooks up nicely for later on in the day when you don’t want it getting in the way.

There is discolouration on a couple of areas:

- The binding under the arms
- The pointy section at the bottom of the bodice at the front.
- A couple of areas on the bottom edge of the skirt.

Train on the skirt needs a steam to get rid of creasing from being stored.

All of these could be swapped out easily by a good seamstress. I have detailed all this in a video. (Copy and paste the YouTube link below) or Happy to send extra pictures if that sort of thing is allowed.

Sizing:

12/14 (bust size 14, waist size 12)

The waist is around 31”, but there is a good extra inch of fabric that we left just in case it needed letting out nearer the time.

I am quite busty for a size 12 so the boning in the bodice allowed for my larger chest. The measurement I put was with the corset near its maximum. There is a 3” panel at the back of the bodice to allow for a fair amount of pulling in to suit.

I was keeping the dress to one day convert into the knee length 50’s style dress in the picture, but I have just never got round to it, and my daughter has said it’s not her cup of tea, so I am hoping someone else might love it or transform it as I had always hoped.

Will include the short plain veil if wanted.

Matching blue and silver and Pearl handmade bespoke Tiara if anyone was interested. £100
