Seller's Return Policy
Claire Pettibone Kristene Wedding Dress
A very flattering Victorian embroidered wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline, cap sleeves, rich Guipure dangles, heart-shaped embellishments on the sheer illusion back, and a heart shaped train. Ivory with pearl silk under-layer.
I purchased this beautiful wedding gown as new from a private seller who made the original purchase from The Dress Theory bridal shop in San Diego, California. The previous owner's engagement was called off and thus the gown had never been altered or worn.
I gave the gown a second chance a love and wore it to my wedding ceremony and reception in San Diego, California last year to my boyfriend and high school sweetheart of 15 years. The gown fulfilled its destiny of walking down the aisle and was a key part of a very special day.
I loved this dress from the moment I saw it online, and fell in love with it even more once I tried it on. The vintage look of this gown with all of the intricate details is breathtaking. Wearing this dress made me feel classic and beautiful, and I hope it will live on to make another bride feel the same.
Slight alterations were made to take in the waist and hem the length, but all the original material is still within the gown and simply needs to be taken out to be returned to an unaltered state. Additional alterations include cups sewn into the bust (since the back is sheer and a bra with straps cannot be worn) and two bustle hooks (one to use and one for a back-up just in case) that create a beautiful waterfall bustle.
The gown has been professionally dry cleaned and safely stored in the original garment bag.
For the best fit, compare your measurements to those of the sellers. As long as EACH of your measurements are the same or smaller than the seller’s, the dress should work for you. Read how to take your dress measurements here.
