WEDDING DRESS + BOLERO 3/4 sleeve (hand made, worn separate) + SASH/BELT (hand made, worn separate) + FINGERTIP VEIL
This Essense of Australia fit and flare wedding gown features lovely ivory lace appliqués on romantic ivory Lustre satin. The dress has got a gorgeous chapel train and zipper closure under pretty lace buttons.
This dress is strapless but I personalised the look to make it really unique : - the dress comes with a separate bolero which was made from the original lace (I ordered extra lace for the bolero from the designer so it matched the dress. Nobody on the day noticed it was separate from the dress.) - I also added a beautiful sash/belt made with crystals to complete the look . The sash was hand made (ordered from the same designer) and it was also worn separate.
The dress was only worn for my wedding day and it's in a very good condition. After the wedding it was professionally dry cleaned and to a very high standard + packaged in a special box for protection.
The dress size on the label is UK12 but in reality it's UK10 and it was taken in slightly in the waist, bust and around the hips.
I am 158cm/ 5.2 feet and worn 9cm heels.
Cup size 75B/ 70C
- a tiny bit of lace was added to the edge of sweetheart neckline to make it scalloped and soften the overall look when worn without the bolero
- bust cups are sewn in to the bodice but can be easily removed if required
- for the train hold up there are loops and buttons underneath which make it easy to bustle it up
The dress itself is still in the designer's catalogue and its original description can be found here: https://www.essensedesigns.com/essense-of-australia/wedding-dresses/d1998/ .
I really loved the dress and got a lot of compliments on the day. I am sure you will love it too! :)
