Jim Hjelm Blush Size 12

Label Size: 12 Street Size: 8

I tried this dress on at the very first wedding dress shop I went to. It was the last of about 14 that I had tried on, as as I was slipping it on I fell in love. I couldn’t explain to you before I got engaged what my dream dress would be, but it easily was this dress. My style is pretty simple and I felt like this dress embodied that as well as gave a nod to vintage (which I love as well).

The pictures listed here are not actually of me, but of my good friend that got married in the same style dress last year. She also has a sweetheart top that she had altered for her. I actually don’t have any professional photos of my dress yet as my wedding happened only a few weeks ago. If you are interested in the dress I would be happy to send you iphone images or photos that I could get from one of my family.

It has been professionally cleaned and has no stains. There is one or two small areas that need some stitching to join a split the crochet pattern. I didn’t even see it until I took the dress in to get cleaned because the pattern disguised it. Other than that small repair job, it’s in the condition that I bought it.

  • Label Size: 12
  • Street Size: 8
  • Bust: 32d (It's a bit loose up top, so if you're a bigger bust size you're good to go!)
  • Waist: 28.5
  • Hips: 35
  • Height with Shoes: 5'9
  • Alterations: It's funny because I'm not a high maintenance person, but I ended up having 5 alteration sessions with this dress. Also, I guess I just wanted an excuse to put it on all of the time. I had wanted a sweetheart top, so I added that in. I added an english bustle as well. Any of other alterations had to do with the top portion (waist and bust). I bought it new in the store, so it was originally a 12, but is now altered to a 6/8 size.
