August 9, 2009: This post was made OVER a year ago. The dress is NOT for sale any longer!!!! I kept the dress!!
Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had I not just ordered my gown not 3 weeks ago I'd be very tempted on this. This is one of the most amazing gowns I've ever seen!!!
Good luck with the sale!!! (Did I miss why you're selling it??? Did you get that Lazaro gown you've been drooling over?)
Hi Nebbs...No, I am selling because it doesn't fit and I need to re-order it in a bigger size.
so i have a dumb question-----> how would it be altered for someone short?? i'm only 5"0 the bodice looks like one piece - so would they do it from the bottom - then what about the lace underneath???
can you tell i'm getting close to hearing the answer from fh???
I am short as well. Only 5'2.5. The bodice is one piece. It has seems on the side that could be taken in.
As for the length, they would remove the lace trimming and hem the dress up, them put the lace back. As i said before, all o fthis can be done, but because of the construction o fthe gown and the fabric, you want to make sure your take it an experienced seamstress. :0)
can i just say --- when i showed fh your dress ('OUR' dres!hahaha) he flipped his lid b/c of the deep "V" !!!! he's such a sucker for cleavage!! perv!! he was like "well, that's more than the cost of the dj... but i do like the "V" lemme think about it more"
lol...That is what got m DH as well. Also he liked the idea that it was amermaid style to show off my curves...men..lol
I swear, I searched high and low for well over a year for that dress because I didn't want a traditional dress. I wanted something stunning, unique and very chic. This dress fit my bill.
I actually sent the pic to FH (as in "Ohhhh, I know I just ordered my gown but LOOK at this one....")... It did elicit a "WOW, that is gorgeous..." but he still said no (not in so many words, just more of a "you already have a dress on order, and I'm sure it'll be even more beautiful than that one.") How can I argue with that? :)
guys are so cute. my fiance is more like "cover all that up! for my eyes only!" LOL. but that dress IS very pretty. if only it didnt show the boobage!
I've seen other gowns with necklines like that where they do a "modesty panel," in either something sheer, or lace, so you get the FEELING of it being low cut, but still cover the cleavage (esp, for instance, if it's a Church wedding).
I was just wondering if you still had the dress? I know that this post was made over a year ago but thought it might be worth a try.
Thanks, I look forward to your reply
No, it is not for sale.
I was selling it a long time ago because I could no longer fit into it. I was going to use the funds of the sale to buy the same exact dress, but in a larger size.
I learned I could have larger side panels added to make it fit, so that is what is being done now.
