Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Beautiful dress for simple event
The dress was the perfect length for me (I'm 5'4). I wore a 20W and needed to open the bust a bit (I'm 42 DDD).
It needs something to draw the eye to the waist since it was a little loose. I didn't want to take it in bc comfort matters but I still wanted to create an hourglass figure. So I chose a cameo brooch. Another great way to wear this dress was to tie the sash in front and off to the side - and then put a big colorful flower pin.
Also, I asked the tailors to put a hook and eye on the bolero so that it wouldn't move and it was awesome. I totally recommend it so that it always looks good while guests click pictures.
FYI - The lace and sparkle detail doesn't come through in low resolution pictures. So I took off a point.

This is it.
Love. The pictures on line and in the book do not do this dress justice. Even on the hangar it's not as spectacular as it is on. Extremely flattering. I didn't have any issue with the jacket and I tried on one size smaller than they ordered for me. Very nostalgic in that it reminds me of my mom's dress. This is for a 20th anniversay vow renewal and I know my hubby will be blown away by the way I look in this. Will get the champagne sash to go with - makes it quite vintage and very elegant.

This is the perfect gown for me! Here I am, over 60 years old and head over heels with my fiance. He and I are getting married in late July, and I thought I would just wear a pretty dress I just bought. However, for my first wedding, I never got to go wedding gown shopping so his older daugher, her boyfriend and I hit David's Bridal and looked for tea length gowns. I tried on two, and this one is it! It's perfect for our outdoor wedding at our house. I even selected blue satin flip flops to go with it! It's comfortable and fit me so well that not even a stitch is necessary. I'm petite, and the tea length is actually a perfect floor length for me. I can't wait to wear it for my Sam!!!!! They took a picture and sent it to my daughter in Chicago and she gave her approval!
