The Dress

Thank you for showing some interest in my beautiful dress!

This Karen Willis Holme dress is a custom mix between the Abbey bodice with the Selena skirt that is detachable.

I have had the bodice, length and skirt altered quite extensively to fit me but can be taken in further in the bodice very easily if you find a competent seamstress. I am about 159cm tall and wore 3inch heels for about 2 hours of the day... then thongs (best decision ever). I normally wear a size 8-10 in the top with DD cups. My measurements on the day were 85cm in the bust and 70cm in the waist.

The bodice is a sheer material against the structure, with beautiful lace details. It is able to mould to the body with some body heat and is shaped around the curves. I had some wire added into the top of the cups to help keep the delicate lace at the top close to my body.

The base of the dress is tulle and is an A line shape. You could definitely wear it this way for the reception but I loved the detachable skirt so much I have no photos of it on with just the base but you can see it in the first photo. The Selena skirt is my favourite part! It is detachable with a silk ribbon for the waist with tule material running off it. When wrapped around the dress it is so light weight and flowy and turns the dress into a ball gown.

I have had it professionally dry cleaned for $450

The veil is for sale as well if you are interested. Its from the seamstress so its not designer but its very very fine and beautiful. It has a couple of small runs at the bottom from getting caught on gravel but has been cleaned.

There is no damage to the dress that the dry cleaners or I could find.

I hope to hear from you soon! I want this dress to be part of someone else's day :)

The dress is located in Sydney, NSW
