Gorgeous Jenny Packham dress available for sale!
Designer: Jenny Packham
Size: UK 6 (Size 0 equivalent for US)
Alterations made: Dress has been shortened to a 5’6″ height. The waistline has been take up slightly for a more petite bride, which reduces the blouse-y-ness of the top. The sleeves have been slightly shortened (from the top, so that the beautiful detailing is maintained), and finally the back of the slip has been lowered slightly (1 inch) so that more of the beadwork detailing on the back is visible against the skin.
All alterations made were to ensure that the beauty of the dress fit proportionally to a more petite bride.
Dimensions of the bride who wore the dress:
Ribcage: 31.5″ (had room to spare)
Weight: 110 lbs.
Asking price is $2750. This is a bargain considering that the original dress cost + alterations was over $6000. Reduced price is due to the fact that several alterations were made (however for the right body-type these alterations improve the dress) and that there are two very faint grey-ish stains on the slip of the dress towards the bottom (from an ashphalt walk way) — these stains are not at all visible when the dress is being worn! Otherwise the dress is in perfect shape. No loose threads, beadwork in tact, buttons all still snug in place! I’m still waiting on photos from our professional photographer but will be happy to share privately once I receive them!
Dress is located in Boston, MA.
