Description

This dress is made from a rich gloss satin with a flattering sweetheart neckline, with a beautiful black lace overlay and has lovely black satin halterneck straps and bodice trim.
It has three pearl buttons down the bodice with a tightly fitted waistband that defines and flatters the waist.
The full skirt trimmed in black and white lace flatters the figure.
It has a black belt trimmed with a bow or a flower and a petticoat made from gloss satin with a organza overlay.
It has a layer of tulle under the organza and has a windsor elastic casting.

This petticoat and trim can be made in any color you desire.

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

Please message me for more color options.


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.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I am very sorry but due to high demand, I no longer offer payment plans, all payments must be made in full when placing the order. (I would prefer to use the time I would usually devote to sorting everything out relating to them to sew :) )

Returns & exchanges

I ask customers to double check their measurements before purchasing garments, if the fault is my own I am happy to refund or send a replacement, if a customer is living locally I am happy to provide a fitting so get the best possible results!
If a customer sends the wrong measurements that is their responsibility and I will not replace the dress or give a refund.

Shipping policies

Due to the great expense of Shipping from New Zealand all of my dresses ship in plastic shipping bags to save on shipping expense.
If a customer would like to pay the extra shipping cost am happy to pack the dresses in a box with tissue paper (This may cost an extra $20-50).
(All of my parcels ship from Christchurch, New Zealand and will take between 5 and 14 days, All wedding dress will shipped courier which take around 7 days and all cotton dresses will shipped airmail which takes around 10 days
All fees relating to customs, duty and importing are the responsibility of the customer, I do not take into account delays caused by customs.

Additional policies

All Quotes are valid for 6 weeks and I do not do wholesale orders.
Customers are responsible for their own import and duty tax.
I reserve the right to refuse service.
All garments are solely made by me, I do not use outside labour.
