Strapless satin wedding dress with chantilly lace blouse, there is a built in corsett and invisible zipper in center back. The lace blouse is all frenched seamed, I cut the scallop edge off the remaining fabric and hand sewed it to the neckline so I could get the border on both the hem and neck of the blouse. I made the belt with the same satin as the dress and hand stitched it to the side seams and caught it with my machine in the center back when attatching the elastic loops. The center back is finished with pearl buttons on a metal shank. The train has pick ups so the train is out of the way for the reception.
