  • THE STORY

    This was a magical dress to wear for my ceremony and reception at a place called the “The Stables” which lent itself to a vintagey/country feel. I wore it for a summer, indoor/outdoor event that was more casual, but I could imagine it being worn any time of the year for a casual or upscale wedding.

    This dress is Ivory lace over an attached Ivory Monroe slip dress. I fell in LOVE with the deep illusion back, covered in lace with fabric-covered true buttons running up the back. The buttons over the solid part of the dress (below the illusion back) cover up a zipper. I also loved the sweetheart neckline that made for a pretty décolletage but was not too revealing. I knew that I wanted straps, and I liked the way these straps were a continuation of the illusion lace detail and so delicate. It was so comfortable (no constricted feeling, no worrying about the top slipping down) and felt so special to wear. Maggie Sottero’s website has a number of great pictures (including a video) of the dress. Just search for the “Melanie” dress using the search function.

    I bought the dress from the Bridal Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan (near my hometown) in May 2015. I would be happy to send you a picture of my original receipt as well as the certificate of Maggie Sottero dress authenticity that the shop gave me. I would of course pass on the certificate to the buyer. I’m happy to answer any questions via e-mail.

  • ALTERATIONS

    This dress fit perfectly, so I am so lucky that I did not have to make any alterations. Therefore, if you happened to encounter a size 10 Maggie Sottero Melanie dress in a bridal shop, trying it on would be exactly how this dress would fit you. The measurements for a size 10 from Maggie Sottero are: Bust: 37.5": Waist: 29.5": Hips: 40". Based on the seamstresses, measurements, I was about .5" above each of these measurements, but I still thought it fit great without being too tight in any area. I am 5'8" and wore 2 inch heels to accommodate the length of the dress. The only alteration I made to the dress was adding a bustle. A professional seamstress added 5 clear round buttons in an inverted "U" shape to gather the train in a traditional bustle.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress has not been dry-cleaned. It has been stored hanging up in the original garment bag in a smoke-free, pet-free room. It looks brand new. There is only minor wear on the hem of the dress from walking in it. By this I mean minor fraying (maybe?) and a little bit of discoloration in a few spots on the very ends of the lace.
