  • THE STORY

    This dress is a custom gown. I am a seamstress by trade, but I had the dress made, and then made all of the alterations to it myself. It is inspired by the Chloe Dress by Marchesa, but ended up quite a bit different, as it was made for a Mermaid Themed Wedding. Additionally, the neckline is open and sweetheart shaped, and the lace comes over the shoulder as a flutter sleeve, as you can see in the picture. The cost of the dress includes the multi-layered custom petticoat of pastel organza. The dress has been hand dyed in an aqua to periwinkle ombre. The dress has been hand embellished with applique on the bodice and shoulders, over a french lace flutter sleeve and beautiful open back. The dress is also embellished with swarovski crystals and sequins from the bodice down, gradually changing in color with the ombre.
    Our wedding was blessed and beautiful, and I hope that for the right bride on a budget, that this dress might bring her as much joy as it brought to me.

    I am happy to provide more images of the dress, close ups, more measurements, and more color representation of the dye on the dress. Additionally, I can send pictures of the petticoat, and would be very willing to add the head piece/fascinator to the ensemble for a small additional fee. Please just contact me for more info, and please, contact me to negotiate price if this is your dream dress, and it is just out of your budget. I simply want it to go to someone who will love it, and recover some of my expenses.

  • ALTERATIONS

    This dress was originally just ivory. I find it to be a bright Ivory, fairly white. A master dyer dipped the dress in special polyester dye to create the fade. The body of the dress is poly, but the lace overlay is lightweight and soft. The french lace sleeves and beaded applique have been added to the dress by hand, to add higher quality finishing- the fabric alone for these additions was $150. Swarovski crystals have also been added, and their cost was approx. $75. In the center back of the trumpet skirt, there is a rhinestone clasp, that allows the train and petticoat to be rolled and hooked up into a mermaid tail shape, to allow for better movement at the after party, and to add to the mermaid effect. The custom petticoat cost about $100 to make. This dress was custom made to my measurements, and so it is for a very specific bride, of a very specific size. I am 5'2" with heels, and curvy. The dress fits me at 38 Bust, 31 Waist, and 41 Hip. it can be taken in at the sides for fit. There are pads in the bust mostly for coverage I believe, but they provide a nice structure and shape. This dress would easily accommodate a bridal bustier. I will say that I think the zipper needs an added little hook at the top, as even after the one wear, I found that it wanted to slide down. Replacement of zipper is also an option, but not necessary to keep the zipper up, and with the beaded handwork at the back, may be a bigger alteration than desired.

  • PRESERVATION

    This dress has been dry cleaned by a wedding specialist, and carefully hung in a garment bag. The wedding was in March, so it's not been around very long!
