'Columbine,' a romantic full length wedding dress in delicate tulle and silk with beaded detailing
The close fitting boned strapless bodice has finely pleated tulle in a silvery grey-blue over a pale shell-pink under-layer.
The skirt consists of three very full layers of the soft tulle over a layer of 100% silk in pale shell pink.
The dress closes at the centre back with a row of little silk covered highball buttons and rouleau loops to the waist, and is fully lined in silk.
The bodice is embellished with sparkly anthracite/dark grey beading in elaborate scrolled shapes. This embellishment extends down into the skirt and front and back.
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 minor smudge or two on the lining, and possibly a loose bead or two (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, 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.

waist to hem (front) 47" (117cms).....this would be pretty straightforward to shorten.
