Long Cap Sleeve Dress with Beaded Embellishment Style 6937
perfect for the occasion
chose this dress to wear as mother of the bride for a formal, evening, church wedding in nyc. many compliments, even from the young, beautiful bride & bridesmaids. comfortable fit (not a thought about adjusting once it was on, and walked 12 city blocks and 10 flights of stairs in it to reception and 'home' again), elegant style (in keeping with the bride and rest of wedding party), well-made.

I ordered this dress in wine, which is a true deep red color. It is not burgundy and has no pink or purple tones. The lining fabric is a medium weight nude stretch, and the outer layer is chiffon. The dress has bra cups built in. The beading and pattern of the beading on the front and the back bodice is beautiful and exquisitely designed.
My only issue with this dress was the fit. I am a street size 6-8, with a 34DD bust. My actual bust measurement is just shy of 38". I orginally ordered a 10 in this dress and they sent me a 12. The 12 could not be zipped. I returned it and ordered a size 14 - I loved the dress enough to do so - and the 14 zipped snugly and the fit was perfect on my bodice. There was no difference in the rest of the body of the dress. At 5'8", the length is perect with 3" heels - no hemming required.

MY QUEEN MUMMY
This gown will make you look and feel like royalty. The beading is exquisite and the fit is amazing. I had the privilege of making this the last perches that I would ever make for my mother. When she wore it , it brought tears to everyone's eyes. I even had a seamstress and sleeves to the gown by taking some of the material for the bottom of each side of the thing was gown. It flowed amazing nothing was taken away from the look of the gown.

This dress is much more beautiful in person than in the picture! The beading is exquisite. The beads are sewn on in a beautiful pattern, and they are iridescent, picking up lots of colors. The dress is quite flattering. The material stretchy and comfortable. The dress isn't bra friendly, as a bra will show under the sheer, beaded material. No worries, I'll be buying undergarments to look my best, anyway. This dress fits exactly what I want in a mother of the bride dress - elegant but not too fussy, flattering, a little bit sexy, and unique.
