The Marisa 644! The Ultimate iconic silk ballgown! ZOMG it makes me swoon every time I see it. Whoever wears this gown would look and feel like a princess. If you’ve seen a Marisa, then you know.
Front center top edge of bodice to hem: 54.5″
This gown is a labeled size 12 but has been professionally altered to fit a smaller waist (the alteration is an excellent job; I’m a professional seamstress and I was impressed). No tears or defects found except for one very small faint make-up stain and a few faint dust marks which are hidden in the folds of the skirt. The dress is otherwise beautifully clean with no dirt or dust whatsoever on the hem. It looks like it was never worn outside of a salon, but since it has been altered and professionally preserved, I’m guessing that it had been ordered by a previous bride and never used. The gown comes with storage box included, which will make storage very easy.
If this dress is so amazing (and it is), why am I offering it for so cheap? Well, it’s not new; it has been altered, albeit beautifully, and it does have the odd dust smudge plus that small make-up stain. Though honestly, with all the folds and pick-ups of the silk skirt, the marks are really hard to notice. It took me forever to find them again to take photos. More photos available upon request.
I’d purchased this gown for materials fodder to use in my own designs and frankly, once I saw it up close I didn’t have the heart to cut it up. It’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s in great condition and deserves to have another bride love it. Someone will be getting an seriously incredible bargain.
This dress is available for trying on; contact us for an appointment. Or if you’re already sure, just let us know and we can have the dress on its way to you within 48 hours.

Our Ethical Pledge
The silk we use in our designs is either new hempsilk or reclaimed silk fabrics, repurposed from unwanted dresses which would have eventually ended up in a landfill. We believe that by giving pre-loved dresses a new life and extending their usefulness, we not only honor the initial sacrifice of the silkworms but we honor the laborers who wove the original fabric. We do this by reclaiming and re-using a resource that would otherwise be wasted.
