This heirloom quality gown is made from double faced satin, featuring a sweetheart neckline and train. Fully lined in bridal taffeta, netting gives the gown just enough structure to stand out at the lower portion of the skirt, foundation bodice is set between the lining and outer layer and has steel boning to provide great lines and keep it securely in place!
Sweetheart Neckline Bodice is covered with Alencon lace - the scalloped edge of the lace dips in front and back then rides higher on the sides with the rest of the bodice covered with individual motifs cut from the mesh and individually hand applied one at a time to create the background for the beading. Along the petal baselines irridescent french sequins are placed under tiny pearls to create some sparkle. The top edges of the rose petals and centers of the smaller petals feature more pearls - in all nearly 9000 pearls each hand sewn to the bodice! Top edge of the bodice is finished with a pre-beaded and sequined Alencon trim lace. Back zipper that has additional lace motifs crossing the opening and snapping in place on the opposite side.
The simple princess cut flows from the bodice to the floor and out in a short train. Hem is trimmed in more of the Alencon lace trim. Train is approximately 2 feet in length (a little longer than a court train but a bit shorter than a chapel train). Bustles into a low french bustle so you can dance the night away!
A finishing touch is an embroidered label with the intials of the bride & groom along with your wedding date. Blue thread is used for your something blue!
YOUR gown will be made to precise measurements (provided once order is received) with the fit refined using a muslin. A muslin is the base layer of the gown constructed in cotton muslin that is shipped to you so the fit can be refined the same as it would in a fitting. Once returned to me (return shipping is at customer's cost) your gown will be cut from the "real" fabrics. White or ivory is available in the double faced satin. Regal Duchess Satin or Silk Duchess Satin can be used as well, however, there will be an additional charge for the higher priced materials.
Understandably a custom garment of any sort, but especially a wedding gown, is a major step so please don't hesitate to contact me with questions you may have.
If you'd like to pay installments that is great (you can see full detail on my installment policy in policies) just check out with other and I will send you invoices along the way. Down payment must be made before any work begins.
Lead time: Ideally we will have a 4 months or more to create your gown as most brides plan for their wedding well in advance. However, if you're on a shorter lead time I can work with you to get it done sooner! In every case I will gladly work with you to make sure you have your gown in time for your wedding.
Shipping: Gown ships in a garment bag inside a 36" x 24" x 6" carton. Due to the size and weight involved I've included shipping only for the United States. This is an estimated shipping cost to cover the entire US including Alaska and Hawaii with full insurance and signature delivery for your protection. I will adjust the cost with your actual location once known either on the final invoice if paying in installments or in a custom listing if you prefer. If you are interested in this gown and are outside the United States please contact me with your location and I can provide you with the cost of shipping.
