My Engagement party dress is here!
We're having an engagement cocktail party at a lounge in the city on September 18th so I knew I'd need a little hot number to wear to our party! I ordered it a little over 3 weeks ago and it just arrived today. I'd like to share pictures and thoughts : )
This is the picture of the dress I ordered from their site
And here is what I received:
It laces all the way down to where the pick ups start in back (its only laced half way in the picture).
As you can see, I made some major adjustments. It was customized to be ivory, shortened to cocktail length (including the train), and I asked them to omit the ruching and embellishments at the bust and just make the bodice a smooth clean fit. The taffeta quality is good and it has a ton of boning in the bodice. I ordered the ivory/old lace taffeta color hoping that it would be a bit darker (like champagne) but its ivory (off white). Its fine, I still like the color regardless. When I tried it on, I found that it fits like a glove. I was measured professionally by a fashion designer friend and she recorded 1 extra measurement for me to relay to dressilyme - an overbust measurement. Maybe this is why the fit is perfect.
I love my engagement party dress! It's not often that you get a chance to wear this much special occasion white, so I am taking full advantage for the next year! lol
