Hi there, This dress was handmade in Europe and fitted by an Armani seamstress in Wimbledon Village, unfortunately... we had a little 'surprise' about a month before the wedding and my breasts got much too big to wear the dress. I had to get an emergency one (sad face) so this one remains in perfect unworn condition - it still has the 'keep in place' thread around the zipper! Its so upsetting I didn't get to wear her.
As you can see in pics I have removed the straps but they have clips at the back so can it can be worn strapless or with the spaghetti straps on. I also had a fun underskirt made so it can be worn sleek without or in the more dramatic victorian gown style. The bodice is silk and has delicate lace applique sewn into it. Its amazing!! Also, the stud buttons down the back have elastic fasteners so it is very comfortable. There is two layers of silky chiffon in the bottom, one white and one dove grey then a layer of tulle over the top. It creates an nice shadow and stops the whole dress being to 'princess-y' The last 3 pics are it worn with the underskirt and the underskirt itself.
The alterations carried out were: - the bust was taken in (oops!) -the front was shortened to create a drape effect. It was made extra long with getting it the right length.
measurements are 88cm bust - it a 32B/C 70 cm waist I am 5"7
The dress cost £750 including import taxes and the alterations and extra skirt came in at £200
get in touch if you have any questions, need to see more pics or would like to try it on. i would love to see it go to a good home so have priced it generously!
