  • THE STORY

    Vintage inspired, this sleeveless Alencon lace and tulle slim fit and flare offers a sense of sophistication for any bride. Features a dramatic lace hem, plunging illusion back neckline, and covered buttons. Puddle train.

    You must see the back of this dress. It is an illusion back with buttons up the middle. I got a backless bra/leotard from Target for only $40 to hold my chest up, and the dress did the rest. The dress is actually 2 dresses; a slip and a lace overlay (which was comfortable and cool on a hot day)!

    The white lace is detailed and really pops against the champaign under dress. The bottom of the dress is lined with an eyelash lace finish. Very vintage, whimsical and country chic. The V neck shows some cleavage but was still modest, and the sholders have a sewn-in bra strap holder to keep the straps from showing.

    The gown was worn for pictures in the forest, ceremony in the church, and the reception in a grassy field. I borrowed a cathedral veil with matching lace from my aunt, and my hair was up in a braided bun to show off the button back. But this would look good with hair down to the side too. Would look great with cowboy boots or stillettoes.

    There is no bling on this dress so you can wear lots of sparkling jewelry. It would look good with a false belt in the front but I didn’t have the money.

    First 3 pics are from the Watters website, other pics are of me in the dress. In the ceremony it is down, in the dancing pics it is bustled, the last pics are close ups of the lace and the bustle.

  • ALTERATIONS

    Bought as a size 10 sample, taken down to size 4 (street size). I have a huge chest (34 DDD in Victoria Secret sizes) and butt which makes this is a roomy dress that curvy girls can fit into and others can have taken in to fit. Went to the best seamstress in town, she shortened the dress but in a way so that it could be made longer again if needed. She took it in mostly by removing tulle from the back and replaced the buttons, then took it in on the sides a little, removed the original buttons and replaced with new cloth buttons on a line (makes a straighter line of buttons, not the floating look), she also raised it by shortening the straps and widened the armpits, But she left the length in the back to give a longer train, lastly she added a bustle to the under dress and the top dress (on the lace so it won't rip, see pics). I am only 5'3" so I wore 7" heels for the ceremony (so you could see the shoes) and 4" platforms for the reception (could have gone with 3.5" if I wanted the dress to drag a little).

  • PRESERVATION

    Been hanging in a plastic bag this month, making an appointment to get it professionally cleaned by the best cleaner/preservationist in CA. But if you want, I can send it to you before it is cleaned for less $. There is some darkening on the bottom of the dress from walking around in it, but that should come out with cleaning according to the cleaner. No other stains, tears or damage.
