Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
My dream dress!
I saw this dress online and loved it. Once I saw it in person, I fell IN love with it! It is so stunning and detailed. I'm wearing it in my August wedding this year -which is outdoors at a local park- so the fact that it isn't long is going to be great. I bought a petticoat to wear under it, too, to give it extra shape, and it really makes it pop! Once I get the corset back put in, this is going to be my absolute dream dress.

I tried one several dresses at my appt. This was the last dress. My consultant Brooke was so sweet and helpful. It is such a stressful time because you want to look your best!! This dress just fit like a glove. I also liked it was a bit longer so it makes my ankles look dainty. I did buy a blingy belt to take it up notch...
I just wish people would not bring in small children. I had people chasing their kids right in front of me as I was showing my gown. Love kids just do not think this is the place to bring them.

Worth the alterations!
This dress is more beautiful in person. The pictures simply do not do it justice. That being said, it did need some work to become what I wanted it to be. I had it shortened 6 inches to be tea length (It is longer than I thought from the pictures). I am 5'6" and taking 6 inches off made it mid-calf on me. I also changed the neckline to make it a sweat heart since I felt that was more flattering with my larger bust size. I also removed the zipper in the back and added a corset back. As far as accessorizing, I shorted the back on the shrug that comes with it so you could see the laces on the back of the dress and I changed the neckline of the shrug to make it a little more off the shoulder. I added a pair of wonderful heels and a handmade sash and it was rockin. It is a great dress for the price, but as is I would not have worn it down the aisle. With a few tweaks to make it your own it can be a dream dress.
