This is a beautifully draped and elegant wedding gown from Casablanca. The back is a show stopper! It is low, elegantly cut and has delicate buttons. You feel like Princess Grace. This style, the 1959, has been in Casablanca’s top ten most popular styles for 4 years. It only came in white and ivory and I had it customized to champagne color (just slightly darker than ivory). It has a pleated bodice and gentle pick ups. It is gorgeous!
It is a size 12 (approximate street size 8). The fabric was “sleek satin” and I had it customized in taffeta. Also…just for fun I had a layer of brown tulle / toole added underneath that shows when you lift the dress up and inside there are turquoise tie ups for the bustle. These can easily be removed. http://www.casablancabridal.com/collections/view/26/309
It has been professionally dry-cleaned and is in perfect condition. The dress wasn’t outdoors at all (even for photos) so there wasn’t much for the cleaners to clean anyway!
I paid a total of $1880. $1200 for the dress + plus $600 for the bustle, cups, petticoat and other additions. Ivory sash (slightly lighter than dress) included and I will also send the two Venovia flowers (ivory). It was a total of $1880 and I’m asking for $450 which is a great deal!
