Ah! I loved this dress!
I was so comfortable to wear on the day, I had no trouble sitting through dinner and dancing into the evening!
This is a Truvelle (Canadian made) custom made dress, adapted from the Natalie design.
I made some alterations to the skirt, the belt and the back fastening to make it slightly simpler and to my own tastes. I was wearing this dress with a heavily beaded cape, so wanted something more simple than the original Natalie design.
The bodice is a lovely layering of ivory lace. It is so delicate, yet beautifully structured. You wouldn't need to wear any under garments with this, it holds you together nicely! It's a fully boned corset, so the structure is strong. The front of the bodice is a sweetheart neckline, the back of the dress is low cut, roughly sitting at the lower middle of the back. I had the dress customised from a lace tie up corset back to a simple invisible zip. This is because I was wearing the dress with a beaded cape and wanted the back to be as simple as possible.
The dress includes a hardened fabric belt around the waist in ivory. I can include an unused off white ribbon that was supplied to me with the dress in case you would like to tie it around your waist and have a bow at the back.
The skirt is floor length and made from an almond/ blush chiffon- this is so subtle though, it's not a stark difference to the ivory bodice at all. I had this simplified to a straight drop skirt as part of my customisation of the dress. The skirt includes a very very small train at the back. I'm 5'2' and wore 3 inch heels with the dress, the front of the skirt is floor length, you were not able to see my shoes unless i lifted the dress up.
This dress could very easily be taken in for someone of a smaller size given how structured and simple the design is. However, I recommend showing this to your dress maker to ensure they're comfortable with any changes you would like to make.
I am more than happy to help with additional imagery (assuming I have what you are looking for!) or any other specific measurements you might like in order to ensure you're comfortable with it before purchase.
The dress has been dry cleaned 3 times (to ensure any marks on the bottom of the dress were completely removed).
The original dress included a cascading wave through the skirt that made it look as though the skirt was layered. I removed this feature to make the dress more simple, it was made with a simple straight drop skirt as you'll see in the images.
The original dress included a lace corset back and bow, which I removed in favour of a simple invisible zip instead.
The original dress included a loose ribboned belt around the front, I had this altered to a more solid structured belt in order to define my waist more.
There is some coloured dye on the inside of the bodice which ran into the fabric from the confetti. This cannot be seen from the outside.
