Beautiful, simple, modern column/sheath style including a small train, plus pin tucks to flatter the figure. Originally a strapless design, I added 1/2″ straps. Because of the straps, I also removed the inner elastic band at the bust line for a more natural, flowing neckline (I kept the elastic band – it can be added back on).
Other alterations include taking in very slightly around the low back/butt area, hemming for length, and adding a three-point, one-button bustle. The hemming was done very nicely, adding a gorgeous slight wave to the hemline. I also had the tailor remove the lowest pin-tuck on either side of the dress, per the bridal boutique’s suggestion, to make me look taller. It worked!
Otherwise, no alterations to the body of the dress. Fabric is silk crepe de chine (94% silk, 6% spandex) which drapes wonderfully and is substantial enough to not feel flimsy. Dress is double-lined, so it isn’t see-through. There is light boning on either side of the bodice for structure, but the dress is very comfortable.
It is in good condition, with no stains or tears on the body of the dress. There is some slight wear on the underside of the hem, since it was worn outdoors, but is only noticeable on close inspection.
I hope this dress finds a bride that loves it as much as I did, and that it makes her as beautiful and happy as it made me. Good luck!
