Congratulations on your engagement. Finding the right dress was for me the most exciting and simplest task. Our wedding was set at beautiful Terrara House - a country estate that feels like you are walking back in time with manicured gardens and vintage charm. The setting was laid back but with a sprinkling of grandeur. And my wedding dress fit the theme beautifully - simple yet exquisite. It has a gorgeous capped sleeve in french chantilly lace with a little sparkle and beading. The bust has a fitted bra within so no need to wear anything else. Following from the waist the dress is a straight satin that falls to the grown hugging slightly and leading to a small train with bustle. Lisa Gowing gowns also have something unique - a tulle skirt that can be worn over the dress. It really gives the dress an added wow factor. Then when it is taken off, it appears as if the bride is wearing a completely different dress! The tulle skirt is separate but I would like to sell the two items as a pair. It also has a train and bustle. I have also included a picture of the flower girl dress because it matched really well with the capped sleeve. I would be happy to sell it also if interested.
I encourage you to look up Lisa Gowing gowns to see how beautiful her dresses are. You will also find they start from over $3000 and that the tulle skirt alone is over $700. But they are beautiful and I want someone to enjoy my dress as much as I did. It seems like such a waste to have it stay in a box. I have paid over $300 for it to be professionally dry cleaned and it has come up beautifully except for the minor damage - please read under flaws.
Anyone interested in this dress is welcome to come and try it on because you have to see it on to know just how flattering it is and how wonderful you feel in it. I can meet you in Sydney or Newcastle. I am 165cm tall.
Unfortunately there is a small tear/hole in the train of the dress from a high heel. It would not be noticeable particularly under the tulle skirt or once bustled. Alternatively the train could be altered to cut the tear out completely. The tulle skirt also has some slight tears but is not noticeable due to the nature of the fabric.
