This dress was made in Australia by designer Rue de Seine. This dress has the most beautiful, unique lace design. The details in this dress reflect high quality construction and make it feel one of a kind. The dress fits so gracefully, hugs in all the right places yet is forgiving on others, is easy to move in (stretchy), and is very comfortable. I found that even when my weight fluctuated with wedding planning stress, the dress still fit perfectly. I got married on a warm summer day, but the dress was light and airy- I was never stuffy or uncomfortable in it. This dress is gently used and has been dry cleaned. The dress was shortened 2" in the front, however the seamstress did a great job to not disturb the lace design. The bust area and the waistline was taken in slightly. A French bustle was also added. If you are local to the Southern California area, you are welcome to come see the dress or try it on.
