Althea ~ Long tunic wedding dress
The Althea long tunic wedding dress is perfect for those who wish to feel comfortable and at ease on their wedding day, because the attention here is on the cut and the fabric quality, rather then embellishments and the dress delicately skims the body and frames the face.
This wedding dress is accented at the waistline with two sheer silk ties that chinch the dress and tie in a bow in the center back. Alternatively, you may cross them in back, and then tie them in front, thus creating a lovely little bow draping down the side-front. See the Lisianthus short wedding dress for a similar effect, though this one has shorter, thinner ties and different sleeves.
Composed of three layers, the bottom ones are a pure silk crepe de chine and the top layer is sheer ivory silk chiffon, of the highest quality and as delicate as a petal.
The sleeves are cut so they frame the shoulders, but I could cut them like the Lisianthus sleeves as well.
The hems of the top layer are stitched with a lettuce hem, which creates the effect of a stiffer white cord running along the edge of the cloth. The bottom layers are stitched together in order to create a clean and hem-less effect.
The top layer has a light train, which can be bustled up by slipping the ties through a little hidden loop on the tip of the train, the effect from the back is beautiful.
Great care in cut, fabric choice and detail is placed during the creation of this design, so while being a simple gown, it will feel and look luxurious and special.

The dress is custom made by me to fit your exact measures, and the design is very adjustable in fit.
In the photos, the exact same sample gown is worn on a Size small and on a size Large. As you can see the design is extremely adjustable to accommodate different sizes, making a perfect fit very easy to achieve.
