This gown is in a Size 10 with a lace up back (not covered buttons) but can be pulled in to fit an 8 or out of a 12. The armpits are deliberately cut high to avoid the dreaded armpit fat but could be easily lowered by a seamstress.
The Vanessa gown is from her bespoke collection and has a V-neck bodice and skirt in georgette silk with matching cap sleeves, a train & bustle. The front ties can be looped back up into the belt or left hanging. You can add beaded shoulder pieces and a sequinned belt to complete the look. This Karen Willis Holmes gown is available to try on at The Barefaced Bride studio.
