Iconic Melbourne bridal designer Mariana Hardwick created this vintage-inspired ivory lace gown double lined with silk and chiffon.
I tried countless lace gowns and this was easily the most luxurious looking lace that also showed up amazingly in photos (I initially wanted more fine Chantilly lace but found that they did not photograph as well). The whole dress is edged in beautiful scalloped lace with delicate eyelash lace details (hem, waist, neckline, subtle split down the front of the dress to show the silk chiffon underskirt). Fabric-covered buttons all down the back, with a beautiful train that is also edged in that gorgeous scallop lace.
I am a size 8 on top and a size 8-10 bottom. My approximate measurements are:
31" bust (these have cups sewn in)
28" torso (under bust) and waist (the waist on the actual dress measures about 26.5". The built in corset is of such good quality that it easily clinched my waist in and created the illusion of a smaller waist without being uncomfortable).
33" hips (though this measurement doesn't matter as much as the dress has a gentle A-line shape)
168cm height + I wore a small heel (approx 1"). I didn't want to alter the length drastically so only had the silk lining brought up by a bit.
Three-point bustle (with reinforced buttons) also added to the train. Comes with original Mariana Hardwick white hanger and dress bag.
