The Penny-Lee Dress is an understated beauty! In ivory it's a great choice for a reception dress or for the bride who wants a sophisticated and simplified look for her wedding day. Paired with platform mary janes and a birdcage veil the look would be very reminiscent of the war-time brides of the 1940's.
The bodice is cut in softly washed silk charmeuse, featuring a cowl neckline and pinched keyhole detail at the back. The armholes and neckline are carefully hand finished with delicate silk binding. The classic pencil skirt is made from imported lace, heavy silk crepe, and silk lining and features a slit at the back for ease of movement.
Get it dyed after your big day and this is one classic style that you will be able to wear again and again!

Invisible side zipper. Ivory is lined in the bodice with a cami shape. Skirt is fully lined in all colors. Shown here with a satin tie belt in champagne #237 (belt is included- your choice of color)

Please review Shop Policies carefully before ordering
All custom orders are final sale. Please understand that you may need to get alterations done at your local tailor, which would be your responsibility. This is especially true when I cannot take your measurements myself, for pregnant clients, and for personal preferences regarding fit.
Colors as they appear on your screen are not going to match the exact fabric in person. To see swatches, please convo me with the color numbers you are interested in and the fabric type (charmeuse, washed charmeuse, crepe, or chiffon), along with your mailing address. You can request up to 5 colors for free, after that each color is $4.
