Product Details

We were so inspired by an embellished swatch of vintage fabric that we created a whole gown around it. Our designers hand applied an entire constellation of seed beads, stones and sequins to the chiffon bib (a dedication second only to marriage) and gave it a classic floor-length skirt. The result? A dress worthy of a starlet from the golden age of film. Specially packaged in a custom-made box to ensure your gown is always as beautiful as the first day you wore it. Catalog/jcrew.com only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoorah, found the dress! I was looking for a modest, simple, yet pretty and romantic dress and it was like pulling teeth. This is unique, has gorgeous beading on top (the pictures make it difficult to tell, but it's there!), and it completely fit the bill! I had to alter it cause I am smaller on the top and the size 0 fit me perfect on top but too small on the bottom, and the size 2 was too big on top and perfect on the bottom. Also the satin fabric is very soft so it shows everything unfortunately, which means undergarments need to be soft and thin and that my stomach will need a bit of a workout before the wedding day. Anyway, I'm thrilled to have found this dress and was really pleased with the design! It's much prettier in person! I got the dress in Ivory, ordered 2 sizes, and had no problem returning the one that didn't fit me. Another plus is the dress is a piece of cake to put on #I zipped up myself), and light, compared to lots of other wedding dresses that are an ordeal and feel heavy. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by classic elegance I love this gown! The fabric has a beautiful drape to it and the beading makes it delicate and unique. I knew I wanted something simple that was reminiscent of classic vintage styles and the gown is just that. I normally wear a size 4 in Jcrew dresses, so I deliberately ordered up one size to a 6, just in case I needed more fabric to work with. It fit true to size, a little big, so I took it to a tailor who had no problem making it fit like a glove. I'm 5'10" and there was enough length in the skirt that I could have worn 3" heels, however I am wearing flats for my wedding so the seamstress hemmed the front and tapered to the back to created a slight train. Again, the fabric just falls beautifully. I also love that I can wear normal undergarments with this dress. August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by beautiful and classic I wanted something simple and classic that was appropriate for a Catholic church. This gown met all my expectations. It was very comfortable to wear and only required a slight alteration in length. This gown was especially pretty in church photographs. It captured the lights and had a beautiful sheen that looked glamorous yet was still appropriate for the setting. It was great to have a gown with sleeves and not have to worry about fiddling with a strapless dress. I would highly recommend this dress. January 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for I love this dress. The photos don't do it justice. I was so hesitant to order it because I thought it might look like a night gown but I was completely wrong. The fabric has a gorgeous luster to it, heavy but not cumbersome. The beading is intricate without being gaudy like some can be. I love the sleeves and the waistband has a nice way of accentuating my curvy figure while flatteringly hiding my belly. I usually wear a 6 in Jcrew but I needed an 8 in this dress for the waist (6 was too small). Also, the sleeves in the 6 were too small, I couldn't raise my arms above my head. I'm hoping they're a bit looser in the 8 (it hasn't arrived yet). The dress is a little long, I'll need to get it hemmed (I'm 5'5" and wearing 2.5" heels). The color of this dress is perfect, a soft white but not ivory. I love it! August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elegant and Unique I chose this dress because it was classic and tasteful. I am usually a size 2/4 but I ordered a 6 because people said it ran small in the waist. It fit perfectly everywhere but the back was a little to roomy. I am short and need a hem and the waist pulled up and to be taken in slightly. I think that the dresses are intended for up to 5'11 brides. I was worried that it would be shear or that you would be able to see every bump or curve (like other satin gowns I had tried on) but the satin is quite lovely. I tried it on with black bra underneath and you couldn't see it through the fabric at all. September 20, 2016
