A two piece wedding ensemble comprising a strapless dress and matching cropped jacket....when they are worn together they look like a gown but offer the versatility of two looks.
The dress has a fitted boned strapless bodice with sweetheart neckline in blush pink silk, extending into a very full skirt with train. There is an over-layer of very fine tulle lace embroidered with cherry blossom in ivory/ palest blush and silver. There is an under-layer of blush 100% silk organza, and an integral multi-layer tulle petticoat.
The gown bodice closes at the back with silk covered buttons and loops, and an invisible zip in the skirt. It is fully lined in silk habutai.
The matching cropped jacket has a horseshoe neckline with shawl collar and wide pagoda sleeves falling to just below the elbow. It closes with embroidered buttons, and is lined with blush silk organza to give a translucent effect. The hem, sleeve cuffs and collar are finished with silvery metallic silk organza.
This is a really beautiful design, and a future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot or two, but it is in excellent clean condition, with no significant marks as far as I can see, just a minor smudge or two on the lining, (these really do not affect the gorgeousness of the gown). This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the standard UK size 8 mannequin on which the dress is shown (last two pics).
