  • THE STORY

    I purchased the dress at Kelly’s Closet in Atlanta, GA, an adorable upscale boutique with a specialization in vintage-looking dresses and high-end designers. I had been trying to avoid a strapless dress, but in the end strapless just looked the best on my body type. I fell in love with the cascading fabric instantly. It was simple but extremely elegant, feminine and very unique. Most of all, it was COMFORTABLE. I felt like I could dance in it while also feeling like a regal bride.

    We did our wedding and reception in a huge loft space, which used to be an old textile factory. We did pictures beforehand in and around the Georgian Terrace hotel in downtown Atlanta.

    I struggled with whether or not to sell the dress, but I think I like the idea of it bringing joy to someone else instead of sitting in a closet. I’ll keep my shoes forever though! Those are much easier to store!

    A note about the size: I am a size 2, but the dress was custom made. The APPROXIMATE measurements are BUST 30″, WAIST 27″, HIPS 35″. I don’t know what the length is, but I’m 5’5″ and a half, and I wore 3.5 inch heels.

  • ALTERATIONS

    This dress was custom made, so the only alterations I did was bringing in the waist a bit. We did not need to alter the length as long as I wore 3-4 inch heels.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was cleaned by David Galusha at Professional Cleaners of Sandy Springs. He is a second generation fabric care specialist. From their website: David is an authority on museum textile conservation and has restored and preserved textiles on a national scale; including Oriental wedding robes, Indian batiks, a wall tapestry from the French palace in Versailles, Civil War era linens, wedding gowns, and uniforms. When I brought the dress to him, he treated it like a newborn baby, even calling it "she." He did a fantastic job. In all, the dress looks fantastic. There is a few loose stitches around the bust (email me for picture). But no giant defects or stains or anything like that.
