After much research I think I’m in love with the swiss dot dresses out there (as it appears so many are!) Does anyone know an affordable designer that makes a swiss dot dress (under $2000…preferably under $1500). I LOVE the Ivy and Aster Sweet Pea and definitely would be happy with the Christos Maribel, but sadly both are way out of my price range. I don’t mind at all a second hand dress, but size 6-8 seems to get snatched up really quickly!
Here’s the links to the two dresses for examples:
Thank you so much for the help!

I would contact stores to see if they have a sample dress they would sell. The one that is $2500 is probably in your price range as a sample.

I just tried on dresses today at David’s Bridal and Galina WG3438 has swiss dots and is similair to those. It was only $350 and I loved it!

I tried on a dress with swiss dots. I dont know the designer ( maybe a bee knows it? )
I know that it was around 1000 – 1200 € (1100-1300 $)
I am sorry for the bad quality, and the dress was also a bit to big and way to long 🙂

Thank you everyone! I ended up with the Galina from David’s Bridal. I couldn’t pass it up, the size 6 was so perfect I will only need to get a bustle! And with their sale they are running it was $350 with tax!! Thank you again!

@victoriapaige: dress twin!
I just bought that from a db store over the phone!! She said a lot of people have been asking about it. I’m not surprised, it is so beautiful! I mean, I hope it is. I have only seen the pictures and I won’t be able to even try it on until my friend picks it up and ships it to me in italy…. But I loved it so much that I don’t think I will regret it. Swiss dots are wonderful.
If you can post pictures and help satiate my desire to see my dress I would gobble them up!!

@victoriapaige: i’m also a huge swiss dot fan. i like the sweet, vintage look/feel of it. i tried on a really cute hayley paige swiss dot fit-and-flare (style number 6211) but it may be out of your budget. but it’s inspiration!

I had to order the swiss dot dress from David’s Bridal because it was so new that they didn’t have a sample in the store above a size 6 and I’m busty so need an 18. The sample that I did get to see was beautiful and they have a great exchange policy so even if I don’t love the dress I can get something else. But how can you not love swiss dots?!?!?!
