I designed this dress myself and a very sweet local seamstress made it by hand. She really took her time and a lot of love went into it. It is tea length and wonderful for the bride who wants something unique or even a bride who wants something to change into for the reception. It has a retro flair but is also very romantic, it is not the typical wedding dress.
It is actually two pieces which I really liked for ease and fitting. The skirt is my favorite part, It is made with several layers of tule and is full without being to full. It almost has a creamy pale pink ting to it that is very unique and lovely and then the top layer of tulle is a single layer of white tulle with rhinestones to add some beautiful sparkle detail. It closes with a hook and zipper. It is fully lined with a silky fabric so it is very smooth against your skin. You could actually wear it separate from the corset top if you found a corset you loved more.
The corset top is made from a silky creme material and has plastic boning and a sweet heart neckline. It looks lovely with a broach in the middle! It has pale pink accent crystal bobbles and the neckline is framed in pink tulle that comes up to form a halter that ties at your neck.The tulle halter is left long and flows down the back, I loved this part but you could easily cut it down if it was too much tulle for your taste. The back laces up with a cord that matches the corset, it has been a bit frayed at the bottom so I suggest you replace it with ribbon (creme, pale pink or even a light blue for your something blue would be lovely! or heirloom lace for your something old!). Like most wedding dresses the corset has a privacy panel so you don't see skin under the laces

It is in lovely condition but I think it needs to be dry cleaned. I wore it at my wedding and then hug it in my closet. . I looked over it and there is a slight discoloration on one of the side boning area of the corset with a few tiny pulls.It is not noticeable really but its there, it was light and hard to get a picture of but I tried
. Also the inside (against your skin) has a stain in the corset, it is inside the dress so no one would see, it is from cake, haha. Plus the cord needing replaced like I said before. Other then those tiny things it still looks like the day I put it on.
The waist of the skirt is about a 39.5 circumference and 38 inch from waist to bottom of skirt in length. It could easily be taken in or shortened! The corset completely tightened is about a 34 inch circumference and it can be loosened and tightened A LOT to fit your curves like a glove. If the smallest part of your waist is ABOVE 34 inches it should fit nicely ( and then you can losse in a lot so that gives you a lot of wiggle room for your waist measurement above 34. The corsetmay be able to be taken in as well.
