I purchased this dress brand new in May 2011 at the Impressions Bridal Salon in Buckhead, Atlanta. This is a couture floral French lace column gown with a fluted skirt and double charmeuse under gown designed by Anna Maier Ulla-Maija Couture. The train can be pulled up and buttoned to the lower part of the dress/skirt after the ceremony for dancing (I have forgotten what the specific term for this is). It’s an absolutely gorgeous gown that’s very flattering and in great condition.
- Alterations: This dress was custom made to my measurements. (It does not have a labeled size). I was around a size 6 at the time and a 36C. I am 5'3" and the dress was hemmed to be worn with 3.5"-4" heels. It has sewn in bra cups. I am more than happy to take additional photos to email you upon request.
- Preservation Method: The dress has been stored a little colder than room temperature in my closet in its original garment bag from the bridal salon. I do not know how to go about having it cleaned so I have deducted $300 from my original asking price to compensate for the cost of having it cleaned professionally. There are some faint/light spots on the front of the dress (not sure what cause them) so it should be cleaned. It's in great shape and has been worn once. The lace needs some touching up in a few places, mostly at the hem (loose threads, etc.). After inspecting the dress closely for this listing I discovered that one of the buttons is missing on the back of the dress (doesn't affect the fit of the dress) and there are two small tears in the lace overlay at the left and right hip; the charmeuse undergown was not affected by the tear. I would have missed all of these "defects" had I not carefully inspected the dress up close - they are small and nothing a trip to the cleaners/alterations can't fix.
