The first layer is a natural waist gazaar bustier with a sweetheart neckline, while the outer layer is a rigid, detachable piece with trapunto stitching. It fits over the gazaar layer beneath, giving the bodice a beautiful level of texture and a very fitted construction.
The skirt for Hannah is very artful, with an abstract, degrade floral motif in motion all over: this is another example of the delicacy and delightfulness of laser-cut organza.The skirt is stunning up close and truly one of a kind. The overall fit is incredibly flattering on any shape for any venue type.
The dress will come with the the original ribbon sash but also the black sash that was custom made and shown in the pictures.

The dress went through alterations to get the correct fit for the big day. The label size was a 4 but the final street size for the dress was closer to a 2. The bodice was taken in for an accurate fit and the hem was shortened to accommodate the appropriate length needed. With shoes my final height, and corresponding length, was for someone with a height of 5’ 5”. There were no major changes to any of the skirt/bodice materials or layers. A bustle was made by the seamstress to make the dress easier to move in. You can see the bustle in picture dancing. The bustle is made with clear buttons
