  • THE STORY

    I bought this dress in a boutique called Susan Deborah in Rochester, NY. The quality of the materials and workmanship immediately stood out to me, even before putting the dress on. The saleslady informed me that this dress was made in the USA, which is an added bonus to me. The dress fits beautifully in no small part because it is a very flattering cut. The ivory cotton lace overlay is soft but sturdy. The champagne silk lining adds a really warm glow and flowy quality to the dress. As you can probably see from the pictures I am busty (size DD) but I have also seen this dress fit beautifully on more flatter chested women (just google Blush by Jim Hjelm style 1104 to see it on others). I wore the dress with the train un-bustled for the ceremony and first dance and then it got bustled up for the reception. Throughout the evening the dress was very comfortable to move and dance in and the cotton lace is extremely durable, light and best of all does not wrinkle! It is a dress that is both unique and timelessly elegant. I’m so glad I found it but the last thing I want is for it to sit in a closet gathering dust, even if preserved in a pretty box. I hope you can give this beautiful dress another chance to shine!

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress was taken in on the sides, chest and hips. The lining was shortened just slightly so as not to stick out underneath the lace. I am usually a size 10, at the store I tried a size 12 and felt that it could use a little bit more room at the hips so I asked them to order up. For some reason they ordered me a size 16 so it had to be taken in a lot. I believe it is now essentially a bridal size 12 which is around a retail size 10. I think it would fit women size 10-12 and could definitely be taken in to fit smaller sizes as well.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was dry cleaned. It is in like new condition. There is a minimum amount of wear and one small stain on the very bottom of the dress (pictured). Not visible unless scrutinized very closely. It has been stored on a structured hanger in a garment bag just like it would have been at the boutique.
