Maggie Sottero new wedding gown, Retail $1800
This ivory gown has a strapless fit n flare silhouette with a corset tie-up back and a peek-a-boo lace insert on side. The entire bodice is pleated then falls into light gathers and pleats with a side opening that lets lace and tulle peek out. Lightly embellished bust with heavy jeweled accent clusters on one side of bodice and one hip.
My photos are shown with no additional crinoline - it has plenty built in and you won't need additional. Material is silk taffeta, which I have a love/hate relationship with. I love it because it is so substantial, hate it because it wrinkles fairly easily. I didn't spend too much time steaming this gown as I know it will re-wrinkle in shipping. Therefore, you will either need to get it professionally pressed or steam it yourself prior to wearing. If you are steaming it yourself, I recommend hanging it outside it's bag in a "safe room", (free of pets and children...) and steam it both a few days prior and touch it up closer to the big day.
Please note: I did notice a few of the tacked pleats on the skirt have come undone. They are barely noticeable, and would be up to you if you even wanted to bother re-tacking. This is a super easy fix for even the worst DIYer. Needle, ivory thread, look for where the original tacks were on skirt, and go under dress, stick needle through both original tacks 2 or three times and tie off on inside of dress. That's all "tacking" is - just a light sew to keep "random" pleats (that aren't so random...)
Most wedding gown designers run small, and Maggie Sottero is no exception. This gown measures 37.5 / 29.5 / 40 and the bodice is very forgiving as it is a corset back that can be adjusted a couple of inches by lacing looser.
