I discovered this dress online and the search began. I called Claire Pettibone in Beverly Hills to find out where i could get it and they said it was a discontinued style but that they had one left and I needed to fly down to their store to check it out. Ugh. I decided to continue my search and a friend had mentioned that Saks Bridal was going out of business AND they had Claire Pettibone dresses. The sales lady had pulled a few and this particular dress didn’t actually stand out on the rack but was assured that it was adorable on. It wasn’t until i actually put it on that i realized it was the same one that i fell in love a few months back. It was one of those meant to be situations i suppose. It is so well made – the detail of the cotton lace with the layered silk slip underneath and a delicate lace overlay with hand stitched floral appliques makes this dress so feminine yet super comfortable as well.
As described by Martha Stewart Weddings —”Wispy chiffon and gauzy tulle, plus the prettiest of appliques (a smattering of feathers), make these some of the most dreamily feminine gowns around.” http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/229999/runway#145209
- Label Size: 8
- Street Size: 6
- Bust: 34B
- Waist: 28
- Hips: 38
- Height with Shoes: 5'5
- Alterations: Im 5'2 and had to have the silk slip shortened. I still have pieces of the cut silk in case it needs to be lengthened again. I also had the center floral applique moved to the side. There are many floral appliques that can be moved around and/or removed if desired which makes the dress very flexible and customizable. Though not very noticeable, there are a few pinholes at the base of the delicate lace which can be repaired if desired. Please email me for more pics.
