A romantic, flowing gown with an empire waist in heirloom silk.
A gown with the essence of pure romance, the Eleanor wedding dress steals hearts with its deep neckline, soft ruching at the overlapping bust, and delicate spaghetti straps. The empire waist is gorgeous plain or with a statement bridal sash. The elegance continues in the flowing, exquisite handmade heirloom silk skirt and full train. Buttons line the zipper for an additional lovely touch.
This dress is fully lined and the bodice is constructed with boning, cups, and interfacing for excellent support. Invisible zipper at back.
Handmade. Fair Trade. Eco. Ethical. This dress is handmade by Ahoung at a Fair Trade women's sewing group in Cambodia. Ahoung works in safe and empowering conditions and earns a fair wage so she can take her kids to the doctor and save for her daughter's education. This dress features our hand-woven heirloom eco silk that preserves a traditional art form. Celia Grace makes a one-for-one donation of a school uniform to a needy child in Cambodia for each dress sold.
This dress is named in honor of an inspiring woman, Eleanor Roosevelt, a great humanitarian and "first lady of the world."

Refunds & Exchanges: We are unable to accept refunds & exchanges on new dresses.
What is a Home Try-On? It's when we mail you sample dress(es) to try on in the comfort of your home. Your timeline. No pressure. Try on dress(es) over a weekend and then mail them back with the return label we provide.
What does it cost? The try on is free but US shipping costs $29 for the first style and $20 for each additional style--then we take this amount off your dress purchase.
Where do I choose my size & try on dates? Choose your dress size and 1-3 weekends that would work best for you at checkout. We don't have every size in stock for try ons so we'll help choose the best size and we'll send clothing clips to fit the dress (just like at a bridal shop!).
