Nora - ombre wedding dress

$949.00



"Nora" is a two piece wedding dress, comprised out of a ballerina inspired bodysuit and a voluminous, soft and flowing ombre skirt with a train.

The bodysuit features thin straps, open back, inspired by ballerinas, and is made out of soft, thick and stretchy matte bridal satin, covered with point d'esprit lace. The bottom has soft rayon panties attached, to ensure that the open back stays in place and to give you, the bride, freedom of fearless motion on your big day. The top doesn't require you to wear a bra, however, you may want to use a backless strapless push up bra for extra oomph. No bra was worn while taking the listing photos as it is not necessary. The bodysuit can come in 3 shades by default: snow white, off white (pictured) and ivory. Furthermore, we can dye the point d'esprit lace to anything (for example cream or blush), but we have only white and ivory satins available for this bodysuit. Please inquire if you'd like the lace layer custom dyed. For example, if we dyed the lace layer light dusty blue, the whole bodysuit would get that tint of color.

The skirt is made out of our softest tulle, and it's inner layers are dyed in ombre, while the top layers fall onto it creating an irregular and magical effect, that shifts in motion. In the pictures it is dyed dusty powder blue into dusty blue at the bottom, you can get this color by selecting "as pictured", or you can come up with your own ombre dye! We are open to dyeing it more colors than we have in our palette. The skirt can also come in just one single color, and of course it can be pure white, too. Or maybe white to a pale blush ombre bottom? The possibilities are almost endless, so do not hesitate to write us your color inquiries.

COLOR INFORMATION/DISCLAIMER

Please be advised, that nearly every tulle, lace or chiffon color (with very few exceptions, such as whites) is a hand dyed one. Therefore every garment is unique and slightly different. For example, if you ordered a "Baby Pink" color skirt before, and would ask us to make another, that would match the first one by 100%, we could not guarantee that. If you need more than one skirt in exactly matching tonal shades, you need to order them all at once, for example, for a bridesmaids party. In that case we are able to make them exactly identical in color. The color chart is a general and a pretty good idea of a color you'd be getting, but it shows the color in a "swirl of tulle", and every skirt does still come out unique in a way, when lining and waistband is added. For some specific and exact color, photo references are always welcome and we do successfully recreate colors of it to major extent. For an exact color match, please mail us a sample and we will make sure your new item will match the rest of your outfit.

Important for ladies ordering bodysuits: they should be fitted during production for a perfect fit. As it is of course impossible, please make sure you have a standing tailor appointment (we can inform you exactly when you will be receiving items from us) so you can get alterations.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size are Wardrobe by Dulcinea clothes?

They are made to your measurements. We have extensive video tutorials showing how and where to measure - and you can also simply take our measurement list from the video description to any tailor if you do not wish to attempt measurements at home with a help of a friend. Many do it at home though and it turns out just fine - we usually spot an error if any occurs.

How do I submit my measurements?

Due to our crafting queue, we do not need your measurements at the time of the order - you can purchase the listing to reserve the timeline and fabrics, and provide them within couple of weeks or even more, depending on your own deadline (we need 3-5 weeks post measurements, depending on the volume of the order). If you have them ready though, you can simply paste them in the "Notes to seller" section, you will find this in your cart when checking out. Alternatively you can just message Inge on Etsy and give her the list of measurements at any time you wish.

I know this is the dress I want, but my wedding is in 6 months, a year, or more. Will the listing still be available then?

We cannot be sure of that, as there can be many reasons to discontinue a product, most important of which is - fabric supplier discontinues a certain fabric. Therefore we strongly advise and encourage placing your order early to reserve the fabrics we have in stock, as well as the timeline, for when you are ready to provide your measurements. We can wait as long as you need, just leave us 3-5 (depending on the volume of order) weeks to make the garments after you provide your measurements.

Can a certain top, skirt or a dress be made in custom color?

Most likely, yes, but please do write to us and send a color reference photo along with your inquiry. Simply naming the color (e.g. "blush") is not enough, because there can be dozens of blush shades, and you and I can imagine different ones. We want you to have just the shade you love and want to wear. Most materials we hand dye - tulle, lace, chiffon - therefore multiple color variations are available, as well as ombre and layered effects.

Do you accept rush orders? How much extra does it cost?

We do, if we are able to. Please message us with your deadline and location and we will be able to tell you right away if we can meet it. We do not charge anything extra for rush orders - we are either able to schedule it in or we are not, and we already use DHL Express Worldwide shipping for your garments and it takes mere days to be delivered, so there is nothing to upgrade in that regard.

How are your clothes made? Do you use any production partners?

All of our clothes are made in our studio - from start to finish. We pattern, cut, dye, sew, iron, embellish and ship directly from our studio. You can actually see the video of how we work and how our studio looks in the "About" section of the shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/WardrobeByDulcinea?ref=seller-platform-mcnav#about

How long is the production of a specific item or two?

For current production terms, please check the store announcement. This informations changes in different seasons, but they are never short, we do always have a queue.

Will I need alterations?

It depends on what you getting. Highly unlikely (unless you provided wrong measurements or gained/lost weight) if you are getting just the skirt. For tops: about 30% of a possibility to need some alterations, more likely for a tight fit than a loose fit model. Very likely to need alterations (IMPORTANT to take note) - for all bodysuits, as they should be fitted during production. If you are ordering Dolores, Grace, Faerie or Nora bodysuits - please make sure you have a tailor available before your big day, after arrival of your order. We can inform you of an exact time you will be receiving your garment.
