- Wedding: May 2012
so my godmother gifted me this gorgeous peignoir from bhldn.
i still can’t even believe it’s sitting in my bedroom. i’m 5’11 and it falls about 4-5 inches from the floor, so ankle length. i really want a dramatic, floor-grazing look, so would it be weird if i took it to a seamstress and had her add a few inches of ivory lace to the bottom (i don’t think it shows in the picture, but the bottom is just the pale pink silk all the way down), just so it barely drags on the floor? it’s fine the way it is of course…i love it, it’s beautiful, but i just think it would be so much prettier and more romantic if it were a tad longer. i’ve been looking and come to the realization that i’m not going to find anything like this that’s a long enough without having it altered or custom-made. what do you ladies think? what would you do? i really need some advice…i obviously can’t ask the husband-to-be since it’s a surprise!
oh! and i plan to wear this on our wedding night, and also for my boudoir shoot, which will take place in december.
