  • THE STORY

    Beautiful ivory silk organza Jim Hjelm 8308 gown worn once and in great condition. This A-line gown has an Alencon lace bodice with a sweetheart neckline and a full skirt that cascades in the back into a chapel train. It was the perfect dress — the lace bodice gave a vintage feel while the organza cascade skirt lent a modern flair. The dress and veil were both cleaned, and preserved, the week after the event. Both are being stored in a preservation box in my parent’s smoke-free and pet-free home. There are no rips/tears but there may be slight discoloration on the underside of hem.

    I am happy to include the cathedral length ivory veil with ivory satin ribbon trim that was custom made to match the dress. I would be willing to sell the Swarovski crystal and tiny pearl ivory sash for an additional $100 (it was originally $200).

    I would love to be able to share this dress and veil with another bride on her big day. I received so many compliments on this dress and I know that you will too. Please feel free to contact me for additional information about the dress and/or pictures.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress has had a few minor alterations -- the designer added custom satin-covered buttons on the back of the lace bodice and my seamstress attached a satin ivory ribbon to accentuate my waist (the crystal belt worn for the reception was not physically sewn onto the dress). I did have the bodice of the dress taken in slightly to fit my 34B bust and 27.5" waist. B-cups were sewn in but would be easy to remove. The dress was also hemmed to accommodate my 5'6" frame with 3" heels on. The seamstress added an amazing bustle that keeps the cascade effect in the back when done up. There are few dresses, in my opinion, that actually look nice bustled -- this dress is the exception.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress and veil were both cleaned, and preserved, the week after the event. Both are being stored in a preservation box in my parent’s smoke-free and pet-free home. There are no rips/tears but there may be slight discoloration on the underside of hem.
