img_1250img_1252This beautiful bridal gown just reminds me of a garden of flowers.  I was told it was faux silk, but I’ll try to do a burn test on a small part of extra fabric to see if I can determine, because it sure looks like silk to me.

The leaves are a pale mint green, and the flowers are peach and pink, and both are adorned with crystal bugle beads.  Buttons are featured down the zippered back.

Fully lined, with a crinoline later, and I added an extra crinoline, which is not included.  Beautiful size 8 dress is new, with no tags.  I’m offering this dress for $99.  As always, contact sherry_george@comcast.net to set up an appointment or to purchase!img_1249img_1248

img_1193img_1194The front is a tank style, scoop neck, with rhinestone accents on the straps by Aspeed and is considered a Large, however look at the measurements below for more accuracy.  I’m offering this dress for $79.  It was worn for one occasion and then cleaned.  The dress falls straight to the floor with a slit up the front left leg.  Scoop back with hook/zipper closure.

The material is unique and amazing on this dress.  It is an embossed lace overlaying a glittery silver lining.  As you move, everything shimmers.  This would be a great dress for a designation wedding because it would pack well without too much wrinkling.  I hung it up after receiving it and the wrinkles just fell out immediately!  The lace is white/ivory tones. img_1195

Bodice is fully lined in white under the silver, to make sure that nothing shows.  The dress straps are wide enough to probably wear a regular bra.

img_11911img_11912This vintage wedding dress is from the House of Bianchi and dates to the 1960’s.  I’m pleased to offer this stunning dress for $109. The beads and sequins are sewn on.  Boston’s House of Bianchi went out of business in 2001 but was previously considered a premier maker of beautiful, elegant custom dresses.  In fact, Courtney Cox(Monica) wore a House of Bianchi wedding drimg_1192ess on the TV show Friends when she married Chandler in 2001. It is rare to find a dress that is both a small size but long enough for a tall woman.

The bustline measures 34″ and the waistline measures 26″.  According to size charts, the dress would be considered a size 4-6.   From the shoulder to end of hem, the dress measures a lengthy 58″.  A shorter woman could, of course, easily have this dress hemmed.  The dress is a soft ivory shade.

The dress is in wonderful condition.  The front of the dress is fitted and adorned with lace covering the chest.  The back of the dress is cut much lower, but not to the waist. The sleeves are voile in the wispy, butterfly style.

There are three layers to the full skirt: voile, netting and fabric.  The beads are tiny cultured pearls(man-made) and sequins are sewn into the lace flower centers.  The style is the classic princess design and is exceptionally flattering.  This dress cost several hundred dollars in the early 1960’s and is easily today still an heirloom item to be passed through generations.  Contact sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!

It is fully lined and has a starched layer of tulle to give it body and shape.  The lines and lines of seed beads alternate silver, gold, and iridescent blue.  The back closes with a zipper.  This new, with tags dress is being offered for $149.  Dresses with this much beadwork usually sell for more than $350!  The blue is brilliant and the bling on this dress is something spectacular!

img_1133img_1136This dress is absolutely beautiful.  It is chiffon, which is soft and flowing, with lots of embroidery.  This A-line style has a fabulous sweep style train that is chiffon and full of embroidery and encrusted with bugle beads, sequins, and rhinestones.

Because the train is such a sheer fabric, the dress feels lightweight as well.  I’m offering this beautiful gown for $139.

The measurements are:  Approx. 37″ bust, Approx 28″ waist, and Approx. 39″ hips.  It has a square neckline and short sleeves, the train flows beautifully from the back bodice, giving it a graceful elegance.  I love this one!  As always, contact sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!img_1132img_1135
