Description

This elegant dress is made from an Ivory Silk Dupion which has a bright tone. With a delicate Ivory floral lace overlaid on the bodice and continued in the cap sleeves, this dress is our take on a more classic and romantic wedding style.

The dress has a snugly fitted Sweetheart bodice that dips to medium high 'V' at the back. A cinched in waist accentuates the smallest part of the figure. The Silk Dupion has an organic texture and a luxiourious subtle sheen to it while the lace has an intricate twisted floral design. The demure 28" Tea length circle skirt is a new addition to our Wedding dress range and we think that it is rather gorgeous!

Alternatively this dress can be made in a range of different fabrics, please see our website for fabrics currently available.
(Please contact us for fabric listings)

This dress is made to order and so will take approximately 5-8 weeks to make and 1-2 weeks for international shipping, depending on location. However, if you need a dress for an event sooner than this please get in touch and we'll let you know if it is do-able.

IF YOU HAVE SELECTED 'MADE TO MEASURE' (see sizing variations) YOU WILL NEED TO ATTACH THE FOLLOWING MEASUREMENTS IN THE 'NOTE TO SELLER' WHEN PLACING THE ORDER:

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

Overbust (around your chest above your bust - with the tape measure going under each armpit and around your back)

Bust (the fullest part of your bust – taken whilst wearing whatever type of bra you would normally wear under the dress)

Underbust measurement (around the ribcage just under the bust)

Natural waist (it is important that this measurement is taken at the smallest part of your waist which is normally 1 or 2 inches above your belly button)

Low Waist (around the circumference of your belly approximately 1 inch below the belly button)

Shoulder seam to underbust (from the top of your shoulder with the tape measure going over the middle of one breast to the bottom of your bra - this is to make sure that the top of the waistband sits snugly just underneath your bust)

Underbust to Natural Waist (this is to determine the width of the waistband on the dress – the standard width is 11cm/4 inches but the waistband may need to be a little narrower if you are petite or high waisted or a little wider if you are taller or have a long torso)

Back length (from the nape of your neck – the knobbly bit – to wherever it was you took your natural waist measurement)

Arm Scye (This is the measurement that determines the size of the arm holes of the garment- please take this measurement around your shoulder/arm pit.)

Shoulder width (this should be taken straight across the back of the shoulders – from the corner of one shoulder to the corner of the other - without curving the tape measure around the sides of the arms)

Natural waist to the middle of the knee (This will determine the length of the skirt, so if you would like the skirt shorter or longer, please let us know and also take the measurement accordingly)

Upper arm circumference (the fullest part of the upper arm)

Above elbow (the circumference of your arm just above the elbow)

Bra Size

Height

Any extra information you can give us regarding your shape and any issues you commonly encounter in the fit of your clothes will help us ensure a good fit. This might also help us identify any anomalies (inaccuracies) in the measurements you have given us.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment is due up front on all of our individual items.

For wholesale orders or orders of more than 4 items we can accept half payment on placing the order and half on completion of the order.

We are also happy to accept deposits on items when a customer would like us to put some of our limited edition fabric aside for them, but we will only start making the order once full payment has been received.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
Our standard sized dresses (besides those in our 'ready to ship') are still individually made to order. We also use vintage and reclaimed fabrics which we have a limited supply of each.
These two factors mean that we really encourage our customers to be as sure as possible before ordering the dress as we will be making it specially for you. This means considering the fabric and style combination as well as checking their measurements against our sizing information.
However, if the dress is made in a standard size then it can be returned if it doesn't fit for an exchange or refund (MINUS postage costs), within 28 days of the dress being received.

The made to measure dresses are made to fit your specific measurements and can be returned for adjustments. The fit of the dress will depend on the accuracy of your measurements and therefore it is sometimes the case that a made to measure dress will benefit from a little tweak/adjustment after it has been received. If this is the case, you may find it easiest to have this done by a local dressmaker but you are also very welcome to return the dress back to us for a free adjustment if you prefer.

Shipping policies

Orders within the UK will be sent using Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For service.
With the exception of petticoats, all other orders will be shipped using the Royal Mail 'International tracked' service, which is a fully tracked and insured service.

Approximate shipping times:
US and Canada: 1 - 3 weeks
Australia: 9 days - 3 weeks
Europe: 3-5 days up to 2 weeks
UK: 1-2 days

Petticoats ordered seperately will be sent using either standard 1st class or international airmail, so these items will not be trackable unless you select a shipping upgrade.

Additional policies

Both our standard size and made to measure dresses are custom made to order.
They will take approximately 2-4 weeks to make and 1-2 days to ship within the UK (or 1-3 weeks for international shipping, depending on location).

However, if you need a dress sooner than this please check our 'Ready to Ship' section where we keep a selection of dresses ready made in stock that can purchased for immediate shipping. Alternatively, we are sometimes able to arrange an express order so please get in touch if you would like to discuss this.

All of our dresses are designed, cut and sewn right here in Brighton, England.

FAQs

Yes! The majority of our dresses are lined, the type of material used to line the dress will depend on the fabric of the outer. We consider the appearance, comfort and wearability of the lining when choosing it. The skirts of our dresses are commonly lined with an anti-static synthetic as this prevents it riding up or sticking to tights. You can request to have the dress lined fully in 100% cotton but this will incur an extra cost.
