This Maeve gown by Priscilla of Boston is amazing. The cut is flattering, the back is stunning and there’s so much that you can do with the dress. The gown is in fantastic condition. It was professionally cleaned the day after the wedding and has been placed in a protective box since. The dress was only worn for a few hours.
When I ordered the dress from PoB, I requested that the bow be unattached so that I could toy with the idea of doing something a little different: a belt, flowers, change the bow in some way or leave it as is. It is included with the dress (never worn) but just needs to be sewn on. I decided to go with silk flowers pinned to the side instead (not included but could be included).
The dress is in its original size. Absolutely no alterations were done whatsoever. The only addition that was made were 5 tiny snaps under the dress. Since the train of the dress is small, I had a seamstress add the snaps underneath so that the dress can be snapped up and under to make it even on the bottom hem. The snaps can easily be taken off or the dress can be made to have a different bustle.
This dress was incredibly comfortable to wear. The hip size doesn’t matter since it goes out in the A-line shape. The place where the dress hits the waist is very flattering, as is the beautiful sweetheart neckline and the slight v-shaped back. I must say, that being a big sap, the pockets definitely came in handy when storing tissues, lipstick, stain out stick, and a mint. Among the countless dresses that I tried on, I kept coming back to this dress’ elegance, simplicity, and fun. To think they no longer make this dress is very unfortunate.
