Hollow to Hem (base of neck to floor): 59″
The bodice cut is modest with excellent coverage. The bodice has short sleeves, a v-neckline, and 20 silk-covered buttons cover the back zipper.
The dress has a flattering basque waist and the skirt is full without being overwhelming. The dress has an incredible semi-cathedral train and includes a modest built-in crinoline but is shown here over an additional crinoline (not included) for extra fullness. The 100% silk dupioni fabric is especially light and the dress would be very easy to wear.

I’ve listed this dress as ‘pre-owned’ because I don’t know for sure that it wasn’t. This dress looks too perfect to have been worn in a wedding. It still has a tag from an upscale resale boutique, so I’m guessing that it’s been pre-owned, or at least came from a bridal shop. It’s so clean that I doubt it has ever been worn outside.
This dress is in beautiful ready-to-wear condition with no buttons missing, or stains or rips found anywhere and would be a fabulous bargain for a modest bride.

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.
