Inspired by the beautiful Vanessa Ives of Penny Dreadful & Victorian mourning gowns, the Vanessa Mesh Mini Dress is every goth bride's dream!!
The mesh version can be customized with a plain (as seen in these photos) or button & lace trim v-neck (see the Vanessa Gown for reference). The sleeves have gathers at the shoulder and the ruffled trim along the bodice is my favorite detail. The beautiful ruffled collar has a velvet bow at the center front. There is are handsewn black buttons & loops as back closures. I highly recommend using a crochet hook to make buttoning/unbuttoning easier. The entire dress is made of a high quality mesh that stretches so you will feel comfortable and look absolutely stunning all at once. This dress length will lay around the mid-thigh for most heights/sizes. (The mannequin is 5'8" and a size XS/32" Bust)
This dress is designed for the alternative bride on a budget but can be worn for any occasion, not just for your wedding day. The Vanessa Mini Dress is the bridesmaid version of the Vanessa Gown. This mini dress can also be worn every day.
Other details can be customized in limited quantities. Limited bridal orders will be accepted for this Fall/Winter 2016. Please email email@example.com with all questions prior to placing your order.
This garment will be specially gift wrapped. It is highly recommended that you order at least 4-6 months in advance for your wedding. Rush orders will not be available for this item so please be advised.
Mini Dress versions and blouse/skirt separates of the Vanessa Gowns will also be available soon. Slip dresses, veils and gloves will be added soon as part of the 'Til Death Do Us Part' Collection.
