Item details

Materials

taffeta, satin, organza, lace

This figure flattering dress is made from a rich luminescent taffeta and has a beautiful lace overlay. The dress bodice has a sweetheart neckline with the lace overlay, a fitted taffeta waistband that defines and flatters the waist and a full taffeta skirt with lace overlay.

The petticoat is made from satin with an organza overlay, and has a double layer of tulle under the lace. It has a windsor elastic casting and can be made in any colour you desire.

This dress can be made in plus sizing or with boning for no extra charge.

This dress can be made in White, Ivory or Black please leave a message in the note to seller section about color.


All my dress bodices are lined and double stitched, and all inner seams are overlocked and can be top stitched (if required for extra strength), They are sturdy and are up to heaps of wear and tear.

Measurements

Only basic body measurements are needed to determine your pattern type and size. Remember to wear proper undergarments and shoes when measuring. Also, make sure the tape measure is held snugly and firmly (not tightly) against your body and is always parallel to the floor for circumference measurements.


BUST- Measure around the fullest part of bust and straight across back
UNDER BUST- Measure around the body under the bust
CHEST- around body above fullest part of bust
WAIST- around body at natural waistline
HIP- around body at fullest part around the bottom—usually 7-9" (18-23cm) below waist
BACK WAIST LENGTH - from the most prominent bone at base of neck to the natural waistline
DRESS LENGTH - from the top of the shoulder (where a seam would sit on a t-shirt) to where you would like the dress to finish at the hem.
LENGTH FROM SHOULDER - this is the length from the shoulder to where you want the sleeve to end, if wearing a tight t-shirt with sleeves you can measure from the top of the sleeve seam.
BICEP - this is around the widest part of your upper arm
SLEEVE END - when measuring the sleeve length it can help to put small marks, then using these marks measure around the arm at this point. this way the sleeves will fit really nicely with being baggy or too tight.

Please make sure you send these measurements, using measurements that start from different places (i.e. Dress Length from Armpit will lead to a dress being to short)

    I love my wedding dress so much! I cannot say enough good things about working with Charlotte. I sent her my measurements (I’m in the States), and she mixed and matched the bodice and the skirt to create something truly “made to order.” She was quick to send me messages throughout the entire process, and answered all my ”nervous bride” questions with clear and friendly answers. And the shipping was fast and easy. My dress fits perfectly, abd I couldn’t be happier!!!
