This is a never worn, never altered lace Monique Lhuillier corset and skirt. The sweetheart neckline, natural waist, and trumpet skirt are all incredibly flattering. Both pieces are lined with an ivory silk and trimmed with an eyelash lace, giving the dress a soft, romantic look. The skirt has a sweep train and is lined with horsehair at the bottom to hold the flare (this can probably be removed if you prefer it softer). You can wear the corset on top or tucked into the skirt.
I purchased the set at a sample sale in NYC. I was going to alter the dress to my size, add ivory silk-covered buttons in the back, and re-line it in a whiter silk (nothing is wrong with the current lining – I just wanted it to be a shade lighter). I can throw in the buttons and the lighter lining silk (worth about $130), if you are interested.
I’m selling the dress because I found another ML one that required less work; the wedding is still on, so don’t worry about the dress coming with bad luck or a tragic history :) It is such a beautiful find, though, so I hope it finds another bride!
The lace is in near perfect condition. Both pieces are made of the same lace. The retail prices of these pieces are $2520 (corset) and $4180 (skirt) = $6700! I am a little bit flexible on the price, so make me your best offer!
