The Eliza gown, from Vera Wang's classic collection, is a strapless ball gown with a sweetheart neckline. The dress features a Chantilly and Alencon lace appliquéd lace bodice, and is complimented by a traditional ball gown skirt made of organza inserts, organized into an intricate pattern of tucks and pleats to create a sense of buoyancy. This dress is perfect for the bride seeking a romantic, elegant and whimsical dress that is light and comfortable to wear all day. It is no doubt a breathtaking masterpiece which will make any bride feel like a princess.
My wedding was in October 2014 where I wore the dress during both the ceremony through to the reception (both events were indoors) where I shortly changed into another dress to ensure this dress was left in its pristine condition.
This dress is a size 8 AU (I am normally between a 8-10 AU in dresses) and comes with the grosgrain ivory sash as well as the organza ties for the back of the dress. Alterations were done at the bust (~34.5) to ensure a more fitted look and taken out to max seams around the waist (~30) with the dress length taken up 2-3cm which fit my 165cm height with 10cm (4 inch) shoes perfectly. No fabric was cut so that the length can be returned to its original length. All alterations were done at 'Alice Haute Couture' in South Yarra, Melbourne and both the dress and ivory grosgrain sash were hand cleaned layer by layer at 'Syndal Bridal Dry Cleaners' a week after my wedding. The dress will come in the original Vera Wang breathable dress bag.
It is with a heavy heart that I will be parting with the dress however I had promised my significant other that I would sell it afterwards in order to justify the cost of the dress (although I did put it off for a little while). And I know the next bride who will wear this dress will also love it.
It is recommended that the buyer is in Melbourne to pick up the dress in person however if you would like the dress shipped to you then I can also investigate the cost of that for you.
I also have 2 flower girl dresses for 7-8 year old girls which were created to be similar to this wedding dress (tulle a-line/ball gown) that I am selling. Please let me know if you are interested.
