The Dress

I bought this gown from Bluebell Bridal (Melbourne) in Nov 22, for my Sep 23 wedding in Italy.
I thought it was perfect for a modern minimalist bridal look - the craftsmanship and structure built into the dress hold you in like a glove, whilst the split at the back makes this dress super playful. It made me feel like a bride without looking frumpy or drowning in material! I considered hemming to an ankle-length gown to get another wear out of her, but hoping someone else might want to wear her for their special day.

DESCRIPTION FROM ALEX PERRY WEBSITE:
Paige is a classic column gown. Crafted in crepe, the gown has a centre back split. Featuring a sleek satin belt and dome buttons that line the centre back zip.

FABRIC DETAILS:
Main: 82% tri-acetate | 18% polyester.
Lining: 82% tri-acetate | 18% polyester.
Details: satin belt | satin dome buttons | back split

COLOUR: White - personally i think it's more like a natural ivory, and not intense white.

The dress has been dry-cleaned, and come up absolutely spotless! I only wore the dress for the first half of my wedding before changing into a mini, plus the dress was hemmed just above the floor, so it stayed very clean and didn't have any major stains after wearing it.

Currently hanging in a full-length dress bag, but if postage would be required I can find a way to package it safely.

Alterations

Purchased a size 10 (as Alex Perry sizing usually runs small), and altered back to my size. My dress size is usually a size 8 and B-cup on the top half , and 8-10 on the bottom.

ALTERATION WORK: bodice bought in, and boning in the underarms moved in the process. Side seams along the skirt from from waist down to hips also bought in, as well as bottom hem. I'm 164cm without shoes, and wore a 11cm heel, therefore dress is currently altered to a total height of 175cm.
For future alterations, the hem could be let down a further 2cm (in case you're taller than me!), however would advise that the upper half of the dress could probably only be altered smaller and not larger. I asked the seamstress to remove any excess seam allowance, so that the dress sat very nice and flat around the bodice.

Alterations were completed by the team at Bluebell Bridal, where the dress was purchased.
