  • THE STORY

    The dress- and all its seams- is made from pure italian silk. This enables the new owner to dye it into another colour. It was tailored by a young tailor from the neighbouring town exclusively for me, while I was 35 weeks pregnant and had a clothing size 18-20. The dress is cut in an A- line with a high “Empire” waist (below the breasts). The gather in the breast area is hand smocked which makes it possible to let some circumference out if needed (for larger breasts). Also, the gather (it has elastic thread sewn on the inner side) is flexible and adjusts to different breast circumferences. The dress itself is simple but elegant with some layers of fine pure white coloured silk.
    The layers make the dress opaque. The dress is airy enough for a summer wedding but also (with the stole) warm enough that I didn’t shiver during my wedding in September with autumn chills. For brides with a firm or only a small (baby-) belly the hemline is a bit deeper, I am 1,63 metres small (5ft 4in) and the hemline is above the ground when I am not pregnant. I had a babybelly circumference of 140cm (55,1 inch)
    It has a zipper in the left seam ending under the armpit. The zipper is sewn in “invisible” and the broad straps (also made from silk) are sewn to the dress permanently. The broad straps (as opposed to spaghetti straps) are very comfortable. The gather and the straps make a bra unnecessary for cup sizes to C.
    The cream/off-white coloured stole is made of a firm dupioni silk and has machine embroidery on it. It looks very elegant

    The dress was only worn for the immediate wedding ceremony and some pictures, only mere 2 hours.
    The great silk fabric made me feel like on a cloud and was perfect with my sensitive skin.

  • ALTERATIONS

    the dress has not been altered at all

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress was washed in a washing machine with a “delicates” or “silk” washing programm with 140°F with a silk washing detergent and stored in a fabric clothes sack in my wardrobe and it has not been ironed in order to avoid foxing/yellowish spots.
