Augusta Jones “Jessie” is a ivory beaded lace dress with a modified A-line/trumpet style. It has the feel of an A-line dress when you are wearing it, but the cut of the dress lends to a slight trumpet/fit-to-flare, which subtly accentuates the body. The built in corset is a great feature to keep dress in place! A few layers of tulle were standard to the dress, and create the fullness. Custom lace covered buttons were added to the back of the dress, that extend to the entire train. Crystal belt included in sale!! The all over lace is accented by the subtle beading, that looks stunning in any setting! I was told by multiple wedding guests it was the prettiest gown they’ve ever seen!
The label is a size 10, but I was a street size 4 at the time of the wearing.
Dress $3000, alterations $600, belt $350 [Total= $3950]

- Alterations: Alterations were made to the bust/waist line, taken in to measurements of: Bust 34; Waist 27, Hips 38. Hips were unaltered from original dress size, and allowed for easy movement. Corset: There is an inner corset attached to the dress, standard of all August Jones dresses. Removable A/B bust cups were sewn into corset. The corset was shortened slightly to meet the same spot as the belt line. (This hides the line that is often created from the end a corset). Hem line: Tailored to a 5'9" height (5'7" with 2 inch heels) Bustle: A two layer bustle was created for this dress. One for the satin lining and one for the lace overlay. This allows for a beautiful, flowing shape of the dress, and decreased the weight of a typical bustle. (Can provide picture of bustle on request). There is an attached crystal beaded belt that was sewn into dress, (minimally by hidden stitches on sides of dress, and incorporated into button closer). Full retail price of this belt is $350. It can be removed if desired, but was a beautiful addition to the dress that is included with this sale.
