Practically Perfect – With extra volume: by Sarah Seven Wedding Dress.
This strapless dress features a beautiful sweetheart neckline, pleated at bust to waist and then falls to a fuller skirt. Features a built in bra with sewn in cups (can be removed) and an invisible zip in the back.
I purchased this dress from The Bridal Atelier in Melbourne and wore it (once!) to my wedding in November 2013. It was ordered brand new from Melbourne bridal boutique, The Bridal Atelier who got direct from Sarah Seven in the US. Only available at selected Australian bridal boutiques.
This dress is flirty, feminine, romantic and most importantly, comfortable! My wedding was in a garden and this dress perfectly captured the mood of a relaxed outdoor setting.
Colour: Off-White (against a white white, it appears a beautiful warm very pale cream colour) Size: US 0 (Australian 6) Cup size: A Silk chiffon fabric. I chose the one with extra volume as this added a beautiful dynamic to the dress.
Will it fit me? I would describe myself as petite, usually wearing an Australian size 6. I am 154cm tall, and wore 7cm heels with the dress. My mother (seamstress) took the hem of the dress up for me to just skim the top of the ground with my shoes on. After the wedding, she trimmed the long side trains a fraction as they got a little worn throughout the days festivities! This dress would be perfect for someone who like me, struggled to find a well fitting off the rack dress.
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to arrange a time to dry the dress on 🙂
I have so many happy memories in this dress, I hope someone else will too!
