This is a GORGEOUS dress that takes a minimum of 6 months to order, so if you’re having a fast engagement, but still want that beautiful “princess” dress, this could be perfect for you! It is an Eve of Milady/Amalia Carrara dress style 355. Dress is a size 12 (I typically wear a “street size” of 4/6) It features a sweetheart neckline, sheer hand-beaded embroidered bodice, intricate lace detailed motifs, and a scalloped lace border. The dress has a ball gown silhouette with a chapel length train. Color is listed as ivory/blush, but I would consider the “blush” to be more of a champagne.
The dress also comes with the veil, which is a 135” ivory single-tier veil and has a raw edge. The veil is in perfect condition, I have not come across a single tear in the mesh. All it really needs is a little steaming to get out the wrinkles!
I have not had the dress professionally cleaned, however, I have taken it to several places to get quotes on what that would cost, and I have adjusted my asking price accordingly. Overall, the dress is still in great condition, though.
The dress has received some alterations. The bodice has been taken in, however, no fabric was cut. The extra fabric is folded over in the side seams, so it can be let back out to its original size if need be. The dress was also hemmed. I am 5’5”, and wore approx. 1.5” Kate Spade/Keds sneakers. I also had bra cups sewn in, and lastly, the bustle was done. In regards to the bustle, I have had my seamstress look over all of the bustle points to make sure they are still intact. So the bustle is good to go!
I am asking $3200 for both the dress and veil, I originally paid $6000.
