This dress can still be found on the Watters site – it’s a Wtoo dress and the name is Camilla. You could probably even try it on in a shop first if you want to be sure you love it!
This dress is so absolutely stunning in person! I fell in love with it in the store (see photo) and it was so much fun to wear on my wedding day I wish I could wear it again… I got married one month ago and because we have a small apartment there is no room to store this beauty. I keep going back and forth on whether to keep or sell, but if someone out there will wear it again be my guest!
The champagne color is great on skin tones like mine, just a little olive, though I imagine it would work on lots of women. The bodice is nice and boned, I danced all night (literally, we had a DJ going until 2am) and everything stayed in place. The skirt is big and princessy, but the design is so modern that I didn’t feel like a little girl in it. It reminds me a tad of Jackie O’s dress.
Dress has no major flaws, despite being worn for 12 hours. My seamstress did point out some pin-pricks on the bodice. I didn’t even remember until I went over and inspected the dress for a potential buyer and indeed there are some small pin-pricks in the bodice. They are not noticeable unless you search up-close for them, and with my camera they do not show up on film. I will see about borrowing an SLR to get detailed photos for anyone interested.

- Alterations: This was a size 8 but I actually gained weight before my wedding (I stress eat!) so it's now more like a 10. The seamstress put in a hidden zip. The dress could certainly be taken in, but not let out at all. And the hem can come up but not down - I am 5'6" normally, in heels I was probably and inch and a half taller and it skimmed the floor.
