'Althea'; a romantic pale ivory full length wedding dress in finest-quality 100% silk chiffon with very detailed structured bodice.
The close fitting boned bodice with in-built padded cups has a sweetheart neckline and narrow straps. The bodice is embellished with embroidered and beaded trailing vines and flowers, which extend down over the waistline into the flowing skirt.
The skirts are very full and fluid, with a layer of silk chiffon over a second layer of silk satin-chiffon.
It closes at the side with a row of little silk buttons and rouleau loops, and is fully lined in silk (so three layers in total).
This is a really beautiful elegant design, and a real future heirloom piece. It has been tried on a few times, and has been used in a photo-shoot, but it is in excellent near immaculate condition, with no marks as far as I can see apart from a very minor smudge or two on the lining. This is one of the studio samples, which occasionally get sold off at a fraction of the original cost (60-75% reduction) at intervals to make way for fabulous new creations. (Unfortunately these are all generally in the smaller sizes, UK6-10)
Owing to the unique custom made nature of these samples I don't offer returns, so please be sure to check the measurements below before buying. These are the measurements of the adjustable mannequin, set to the highest figures the dress will comfortably accommodate.
We do ship internationally, and I have included some figures for a few of the more popular destinations, but if your country is not listed please get in touch for an accurate shipping quote before completing checkout.
