The dress can be any length and i made to your measurements. I use white silk-cotton (55% silk, 45% cotton) to line the dress, and a very high quality french cotton lace (like an unembroidered alencon) as the overlay and over the upper chest and back. The dress does have cute little silk cotton and tulle covered buttons which I make, but sadly no one noticed that we forgot to button the dress in the back when we photographed it! The buttons are only functional at the very top of the nude lace, once the lining begins, so does a hidden zipper, and while the buttons continue to the low hip, they are only there as decoration.
The skirt is made with a gorgeous teal silk dupioni belt which has a slight dip at the front. Then I use five yards of gathered silk chiffon in iridescent "peacock" and sew it into the belting. The very front of the skirt is gathered up a few inches so you don't step on it, and the back is left long to brush the floor. The skirt is shown as being tied on with organza silk ribbon, but we can also make it hook on if you would prefer.

Don't forget I am a custom couture artist and I am happy to make your wildest dress dreams come true. I don't use patterns, so I can make anything you can think up. Every dress is hand cut by me to flatter your very specific measurements and shape. I use the highest quality natural (non-synthetic) fabrics, and to adorn your dresses are a huge selection of Swarovski crystal beads and rhinestones, freshwater (or saltwater) pearls, vintage sequins and vintage lace and crochet appliques!
All My dresses are available as dress kits, which are cut and pinned to your measurements and come with all the notions and directions necessary for you to sew together your very own dress! Its also much less expensive.
