Description

The Doretta Dress is named after a dreamy love story in one of my favorite Puccini arias, "Chi bel sogno di Doretta..."

"Ah! mio sogno! Ah! mia vita! ... O sogno d'or poter amar così!" (Ah ! My dream! Ah ! my life! ... Oh golden dream to love like that!)
-La Rondine

***********************************************

The Doretta Dress is made from the highest quality 100% silk duchess satin. The classic silhouette is based on a vintage 1960s pattern, and the hand-beaded illusion bust/neckline is intricately hand-beaded and inspired by the beadwork of one of my favorite vintage designers, Mr. Blackwell. The beading is done with vintage beads, rhinestones, and sequins from the 60s, so they have a gorgeous patina. The bust is fully lined beneath the illusion net. (The illusion net can me made lighter or darker upon request if you would like it to match your skin tone.) Invisible zipper in back. Dress available in White, Ivory, or Champagne.

The color is perfect and will make me feel very "Marie Antoinette" on my wedding day! Thanks so much for a great custom-garment purchasing experience!
