This gown is a stunning, more unique Maggie Sottero (Deloris) original. It is a flattering Fit and Flare with one added layer of tulle petticoat to the bottom for additional volume. It has a moderate train with a bustle. It was purchased New, not as a sample from Spybaby Bridal in Syracuse, NY in 8/2014 for my 10/2015 wedding. Minor alterations were made at the same bridal shop. The gown was worn once, barely altered and is in perfect condition. It was dry cleaned once after the big day, then stored lovingly in a black cool, dry space. Prior to the wedding, it was stored at the bridal shop in their dark, gown storage space.
Details - The dress is light ivory with pewter raised floral embellishments. It is not a yellow ivory. The color looks more white. It has Crystal beading on the bodice that extends to the hips and the raised floral pattern is scattered throughout the entire fabric of the dress. The gown has three tired layers of tulle on the bottom and you can see each layer slightly. The back has a hidden corset so you can really tighten it up. The bodice has boning and quality ribbing to prevent it from falling down. I wore this dress from 10 AM until 10 PM and it did not fall down! The veil is not included, but added a nice layer of detailed lace to the bottom for my church ceremony. Price dose not include shipping. Measurements: My Bust - 36" D cup. (There are cups sewn in delicately and they can easily be removed if needed). My waist- 29 1/2 " My Hip - 41" My Height 5'1" (The dress is not a petite, so I had to have it shortened by 1"). The French bustle has clear buttons sewn into the embellishments. (It took 3 bridesmaids to find them, but they are there). Other alterations ( A breast tuck was done to slightly shorten the top of the sweetheart under my arm pits where it was too tall for my petite height ).
