I just got married last weekend - and am needing to sell my dress because I live in a tiny studio apartment and we just can't fit it in the closet!
I bought this dress new in a size 4 (and truthfully, I wear a size 6 dress and a size 8 jean) and I had it altered a bit - I had it taken in in the bust and hemmed to skim the floor. I stand 5'4 1/2 and I wore 3" heels.
There are no stains or marks on the body of the dress, but the hem is dirty from the dance floor. So, to be honest, I would buy this dress if you intend to hem about 2" to hide the marks. If you are really trying to save money, I wouldn't even dry clean it - I swear to you it does not have the faintest scent of anything! It could use a steam iron, however. I also have the leftover material from the alterations in case you need it.
My wedding was 3/23/13 and I have a few candid shots from friends but no professional pictures yet.
Please feel free to contact me regarding this dress - it was PERFECT!
Asking $500 - I'll pay the shipping!
Thanks - Christine
