The Dress

KWH's Description: "Anya is the ultimate sequin wedding gown. She is iconic to KAREN WILLIS HOLMES and boasts minimalism and elegance. Delicate spaghetti straps and a completely beaded and sequinned bias skirt give you a stunning form-fitting shape. Anya makes for an incredible reception gown too and the perfect gown to shorten after your wedding. Finished with a fine beaded belt."

I purchased this dress at the Karen Willis Holmes sample sale. I was told it has a different lining on the inside of the dress than one purchased from the store. Other than that, it is identical. It had bust pads included already, then I had it altered to my height, and bustled with a KWH seamstress. I wore it for my wedding, it was immediately cleaned, and is now sitting in double bagged in a KWH garment bag awaiting its next owner.

It is an absolutely stunning dress, and a delight to wear and twirl around in. I'm a standard size 8 and it fits like a glove. It was super light compared to other sequin dresses and I was able to go to the bathroom by myself all day - a real win!

My photos were taken at a wharf, so I did put a tiny hole in the train right at the edge, it would be easily fixed and covered up with some sequins, or chopped off if you are shorter than me. There are two small patches on the dress where about a dozen sequins are missing - one on the right side below bust, just under the belt, and one in the train near the hole. There is also slight fraying on the edges of the lining, not visible from the outside at all. I'm happy to provide photos, please just ask me. I also have a bag of sequins that are spares, just requires someone to stitch them on.

I am also including my veil in the sale price.

Alterations

- Dress has a pair of bust pads, I am a 10C and wore no bra, plenty of space still if you have a bigger bust
- Dress has bustling option with a very discreet hook on the back of the dress to lift it nicely
- Dress has a ribbon to hold train underneath in the lining
- Dress has been shortened to suit my height, train reduced on the sides to match
