  • THE STORY

    NOTE: Main photo is a web photo of the dress on a model. I have added a sweetheart neckline to the dress so it’s not straight.

    When I tried this dress on in the boutique wedding shop in downtown Portland I knew it was the one. It was the fabric of the dress that was so unique and gorgeous that I fell in love. I had tried on dozens of other dresses and it was heads and tails more exquisite than any soft tulle, satin or silk. Watters just knows how to make amazing dresses.

    A silver threading has been used that adds a luminance to the fabric and even a subtle stripe across the already wonderful textured fabric. It had such amazing movement and ease and was so light and easy to wear. After the nuptials everyone came running up to take a closer look at the dress because the fabric is so enthralling.

    This was the sample size dress and I had to buy if off the rack in order to have it in time for my wedding, which was only two months away. I paid $400 to get it fitted and to have a bustle added. The bustle alone was $200 of the cost. The alteration woman was incredibly talent and the dress was finished perfectly. No one would ever know it wasn't already my size if they didn't know. The dress has been fitted to my measurements so if you're the same or very similar this would be a good fit. The internal "corset" band has four different places to hook-in so does allow some flexibility in sizing. I attached a photo of the bustle buttons in the back. I covered them with a belt/sash. The belt in the photos is not included in the sale of this photo. The belt I wore is the Pearly Primrose belt from BHLDN, which I purchased separately for $300. I am selling the belt on another site for $200 so let me know if you're interested in it. MAKE ME AN OFFER ON THE DRESS. I'm somewhat negotiable. I have a small closet and it takes up a lot of space. :-) My measurements: Bust: 33" Natural waist: 28" Height: 5'5" (I wore heels that were 4" with a 1" built-in platform and the dress hit the floor) ONE important thing to note about the bustle. My alterations person was very talented and she explained to me that because the train of this dress was designed in an oblong shape (not circle) it was impossible to bustle the dress in a way that made it perfectly straight along the hem. Therefore the dress does bustle but it creates an uneven hem line. This didn't bother me because of the nature of the fabric which was good at disguising that sort of thing. No one noticed and the dress looked wonderful even bustled but just want to be sure that anyone considering buying this knows that the bustle will produce an uneven hem in the back.
