Label Size: 8 AU
Designer: Sottero & Midgley
Dry Cleaned: Yes
This stunning gown is from the 2014 Sottero and Midgley Spring Collection, purchased brand new and worn once for my wedding in late October 2014.
This dress features a gorgeous ivory beaded embroidered lace on tulle overlay featuring dazzling Swarovski crystals with buttoned back closure over a separate champagne demure stretch satin slip dress with zipper back closure. The dress has a small train and capped sleeves, and together with the champagne hues vintage elegance is created.
This dress currently retails in Abbey Bridal at its original price of $4998 but can be yours for a fraction of the price.
This decadent gown is sure to stand out on your big day. It is most flattering on the body due to the way the dress falls as a result of the weight of the beads. The dress photographs beautifully in any light and looks just as textured in black and white.
It has been professionally hemmed (both satin slip and lace overlay) by a bridal tailor. The waist of the satin slip only was taken in slightly with all material remaining in the slip so you are free to adjust it to its original size. Bra cups were added for extra lift but can be easily removed. A small loop was attached to the train hem which I held comfortably (looped around my finger) while dancing later in the night. No other alterations have been made. A tailor can easily bustle this dress if preferred.
The dress is in very good condition and stored in its original garment bag with spare beads and tags attached. It has been professionally dry-cleaned with extra care given to the beaded lace.
Unfortunately due to the form fitting nature of the dress it cannot be let out. This dress will fit a size 8 (Australian), with a margin to fit a large size 6 or small sized 10. I am 168cms in height and wore 9cm heels with the dress. I am a size 8 on top with a 10B bust and am between an 8-10 around the hips and bottom.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, want to see more pictures or if you would like to try it on. I hope someone else will love this dress as much as I have.
A chapel length ecru coloured veil, headpiece with beading and Swarovski crystals and ivory satin peep toe heels (size 7 1/2) are also available for sale if interested.
