  • THE STORY

    From BHLDN website: “Delicately gathered, infinite pleats of fine tulle stream over a skirt made of two layers of flowing satin silk, ending in a slight train at the back hem. From the waist, gorgeously embroidered flowering branches yearn heavenward atop a structured bodice and over a sheer tulle neckline and straps. A Catherine Deane original, designed exclusively for BHLDN. Side Back zip and silk-covered button closure.”

    *This silhouette is fitted through the bodice.
    *Interior stretch corset with boning and bust cups
    *Silk and polyester tulle shell; silk embroidery
    *Silk satin lining
    *Delicate fabric covered buttons from the neckline to natural waist in back

    Received so many compliments on this dress at my wedding and I was so happy with the purchase! Would love to share this beautiful and ethereal dress with another bride!

  • ALTERATIONS

    Only alteration was hemming. I am 5'3" and wore 3 1/2" shoes with the dress. The hem just swept the floor in the front and had a slight train in the back. The dress currently measures 41 inches from natural waist to front hem, 55 inches from the top of the shoulder strap to front hem. The back hem is 5 inches longer for a slight train effect. I am a size 00 to 0 in popular brands of street clothes (J Crew, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Loft, Anthro, etc). I wear a 32C bra. The bust of the dress fit perfectly. Again, the length was the only alteration that I made. My own measurements are: chest 32", natural waist 24.5", hips 35". I can send additional measurements of the dress upon request. Worn only once by the original owner in May 2014. Has been professionally cleaned (dry cleaned according to label instructions) after use. One small tear in the gauze overlay (approx 1/2 inch long 1 inch above hemline) on bottom of hem that is not noticeable since the bottom of the dress sweeps the floor. If new bride is shorter or plans to wear shorter heels (or flats), this could very easily be removed through regular hemming. Silk satin underskirt is perfectly intact without any tears or runs but does have very light minimal residual stains along the back hemline/train (soil is not completely removed by dry cleaning). Stains are not noticeable when the dress is worn since they are on the silk underlayer and are so faint. Could be completely removed by hemming. Again, these defects would not be noticeable even without further repair due to the design of the dress and overlay and location of small tear/soil. Will send detailed pictures on request. Dress can be inspected by buyer prior to final purchase if transaction is processed through Escrow.com

  • PRESERVATION

    Professionally cleaned (dry cleaned according to label instructions). Stored in temperature/humidity controlled living area in a nonsmoking household. Original garment bag and wooden Catherine Deane hanger included. Listing for $1200 (50% discount). Will entertain any serious offer. Thanks for looking!
