This stunning dress was purchased at Raffaele Ciuca Brunswick 2017 as part of a floor show of upcoming 2018 dresses, limited edition. It has been worn once and hand cleaned professionally by Syndal's Bridal Dry Cleaners in July 2018 and comes with a free preservation bag with acid paper lining so that the dress does not discolour and can be kept in perfect condition.
It is an easy dress to walk in and movement of arms is easy as well. The lace work across the sleeves and back is flawless and beautiful. I had many comments about the details of the back of the dress. It really is a talking piece!
There is a bustle at the back to attach the train to, but you may need a trusty bridesmaid to assist with the job. This magnificent dress was everything I had dreamed of for my wedding and I hope that it can make someone else just as happy as I was.
GIVEAWAY - I'm giving away my beautiful ivory "BRIDE" robe with lace on arms and at knee length seem for FREE.
PLUS - I'm giving away my veil away - purchased for &129.00. Before the ceremony, I actually teared it in the limo :( so I'm unable to sell it. However, no one could tell as the tear is small.
Serious buyers are welcome to try on the dress (tan and makeup free) from this date. I'm based in Croydon. :)
The dress was purchased as a size 10 an has been altered on many seams to fit smoothly around the waist, torso and also the shoulders and sleeves. It was altered by Dress Maker and Such in Croydon, who has brilliantly left fabric in the waist and torso and some in the sleeves to take back out. She understood it was my intention to sell the dress and has therefore completed all her works on the dress with that in mind. If you range from a AU size 6-10 then this dress will be suitable to try on. I'm more of a size 6-8 up the top and a size 10 down the bottom.
There are no flaws in the fabric whatsoever. A couple of the hooks for the buttons at the back of the dress are a little loose, but this is a simple fix with alterations.
Breast cups have been removed as I liked the 'natural look', however these can be replaced.
