'Queen Anne's Lace,' a romantic full length wedding dress in delicate embroidered ivory silk chiffon with a mint green silk georgette under layer to give an overall pale mint green effect. The gown is fully lined in silk crepe-back satin.
The close fitting lightly boned strapless bodice has underwired cups and a high empire seam at the front, curving down to sit on the natural waist at the back.
The bodice seams and neckline are trimmed with daisy detail and hanging guipure flower lace.
The full length sleeves are closely fitted at the shoulder and flare into a slight trumpet shape at wrist. There is a band of antique embroidered tulle insert lace just above the elbow.
The skirt consists skims flatteringly over the hips and extends into a train.
The dress closes at the centre back with a row of little silk covered highball buttons and rouleau loops.
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, but it is in excellent clean condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from a smudge to the upper bodice lining, (which really does 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 in the last image, with any excess room indicated.
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before completing checkout. Please be aware that there may be import tax payable at point of entry according to local tax laws.
Bust; 33" (84cms)
Waist; 25" (63.5cms)...there may be a little latitude in the waist (up to an inch) as the waist sits high at the front.
shoulder to hem (front) 62" .....this would be pretty straightforward to shorten.
