I have a size 8 (street size 6) ivory Melissa Sweet Dora that I wore to my September 2008 wedding. The length is unaltered, but the top was taken in to fit someone who wears a 32c/34b bra. I had it dry-cleaned right after the wedding. I love it, and have been dragging my feet as far as selling it goes. It's the genuine article. Such a pretty dress. I purchased it at the Wedding Atelier in Manhattan last year. Contact me if you're interested penwood at gmail dot com. Have plenty of pics.
