For sale is my stunning Jenny Packham 'Ruby' wedding dress in ivory silk chiffon and satin. The dress features beautiful Swarovski crystal and glass beading detail under the bust onto the waist and on the front section of straps at the neck.
The dress represents beautiful vintage styling typical of Jenny Packham. The upper silk satin section of the dress which is fitted is made up of wide satin straps to the rear which cross in a striking racer back down to a deep back. The front upper satin section pleats down vertically over the bust forming a deep v-neckline and down onto the hips in a glomourous classic 1930's Hollywood movie star style.
The silk chiffon main body of the dress drops down in an soft A-line from the satin section. This is cobweb light silk chiffon made of two layers and forms a slight train at the back of the dress.
I wore the dress at my wedding in June 2017. I ordered and bought it from The White Closet, in Didsbury, Manchester who specialise in just a few classic designer dress makers such as Jenny Packham. I paid £2650 for the dress. Ruby is in perfect condition. The dress has been specialist silk 'green' cleaned without harsh chemicals at a cost of £185 and the dress looks the same as the day I picked it up from the bridal shop.
I wore a Poirier plain ivory bustier with the dress, as recommended by The White Closet as this is the only bustier on the market affording a deep low back. I have this for sale too for £40. Size 38b. This is also in immaculate condition.
The straps were professionally shortened by 1.5 inches at the back by my seamstress because I lost weight between original fitting and when I collected my dress. Although no silk was taken away at all in doing this. There are two little hooks sewn onto the inside of the back of the dress to secure it to the bustier but these could easily be removed leaving no trace if not required. I am 5ft 6.5 inches in height and I wore 4 inch high Irregular Choices heels and the dress skimmed my toes at the front perfectly.
This dress is utterly stunning, beautiful to wear and I felt truly amazing in it on my wedding day! You can't ask for more than that!!
I am promoting the sale of my dress on more than one platform.
