Elegant Simple Classic A-Line Wedding Dress
A classic, elegant design that I thoroughly enjoyed wearing for my wedding. I was looking for something with a simple A-line cut that showed off my back. I loved the buttons all the way down the skirt - such a lovely detail.
I bought this dress second-hand for $1900, but I estimate it was originally about $3900 (based on the average price of this brand of gown). The dress feels so luxurious against the skin since it's 100% silk. If you're looking for something that is understated, yet sophisticated and flattering, then this is the dress for you!
The dress was altered to fit me, and I'm about a size 6. The dress was originally a size 10. I also had the dress hemmed (I'm 5'7" in flats, which I wore for the wedding) and had cups put into the bodice.
The dress was easy to dance in, although the finger loop at the end of the skirt that allowed me to hold up the skirt broke at the end of the night. This would be very easy to repair. This dress could also take a bustle, although I chose not to have one.
The dress has some black scuff marks on the bottom of the skirt from outdoor pictures. These could be easily spot cleaned. The dress should be spot cleaned only! Do not dry clean! When I bought the dress, there was a small red mark (I believe from a red pen or possibly lipstick), but my seamstress was able to remove this completely without any stain left behind at all! I would suggest spot cleaning this dress after having it altered, rather than before.
