  • THE STORY

    Purchased at the J. Mendel store in NYC. This dress was hand made in their Atelier by expert seamstresses. The fabric is French imported, high-quality silk chiffon and the gown has a meticulously crafted bustier and back invisible zipper with clean finish hook and eye closures. The design is unique in that the front skirt is a petal overlay construction that is shorter in front and flows into a train. Other details to note: a self-fabric sash with raw edges that is attached at the empire waist and lightly drapes around legs, 3 layers of bias cut silk chiffon for the petal skirt (each with baby hem finish) and the train can be pinned up with an invisible hook and eye feature. Due to the nature of the fabric, this gown has a beautiful gossamer drape and is subtly transparent. The coloring of this gown is in the vintage ivory and cream family; if you are seeking a white dress, this gown is not at all white in nature. Because this is a hand made garment, the ruching is less uniform than a machine made gown. It was worn during my ceremony and photos, then I changed into a short dress for the reception to keep the gown in excellent condition. It comes with the original J. Mendel garment bag and hanger.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress label states size 4, but the dress was altered at J. Mendel's Atelier to fit size 2. Due to the bias cut petal skirt design waist and hip measurements are very flexible. Your bust should be around 32B, 32C, 33B or 33C...

  • PRESERVATION

    The gown was dry cleaned after the wedding and stored in a closet at my home within the J. Mendel garment bag. We have a climate controlled house, as well as live in a pet-free, smoking-free and child-free household. The gown was dry cleaned on Oct. 15, 2015 to prepare it for selling (I have the receipt). I highly recommend a thorough steam of the dress before wearing to remove all wrinkles from shipping.
