Essence design with a touch of Anna Campbell - bow and cuff! Beautiful wedding dress, worn once only (in Dec 2014) and dry cleaned. The dress is made of an ivory lace covering lavish satin. It has a scalloped lace on the hem and train of about 1 metre. The back zips up under crystal buttons and features a low-cut back. Overall the dress has been altered from the original - which can be found here http://www.essensedesigns.com/essense-of-australia/dresses/detail/D1695 The dress was altered to include the beautiful bow at the back that Anna Campbell dresses have. The dress is a size 12, but was altered to be approx size 10-12. Alterations were the following: To back: Removed heart shaped back design, to make it a low back design. Sleeves were altered so they don't fall off the shoulder. To dress: Dress was taken in around the hips to make it similar to a fishtail appearance (but not extreme). Dress was taken up - I am 162cm + wore heels that were ~5cm. A little white button was sewn into the back of the dress, at the top of the thighs - to allow the train of the dress to be hooked up (a little bow to attach to button can be found at the bottom of the dress). To belt: The belt from original dress was not worn (but will be available with purchase). An Anna Campbell sash was used, but altered to create a slimmer appearance. An Anna Campbell Julia cuff (worth $145) was sewn onto the belt, to give it a unique design. (http://www.annacampbell.com.au/accessories/cuff/julia-cuff-original)
Note: two buttons at the lower end of the dress fell off - however similar ones can be purchased in a sewing shop. Please let me know if you have any questions!
