This gorgeous bride looked stunning in a Mikaella gown made modest. Mikaella is constantly impressing us with the simple elegance found in every design, but Kaestle enhanced this beauty with a custom build up. Many of our designers can begin the alteration process while the dress is still in production.
Kaestle took this opportunity to fill the back with Mikaella before it arrived. Our very talented in-house alterations team worked with the bride to get a matching lining and to finish making this gown temple-ready.
Originally, this gown features a keyhole back and side inserts. Kaestle opted to fill in the back with the original Guipure lace and used a nude underlay stretch satin lining to give the look more dimension. She kept the Swarovski buttons look and extended them down the entire back which we 10,000% agree with her design choices.
This gown is stunning in its original state, or built up!
Mikaella gowns are made with high quality fabrics and all made in Canada, and this dress is no exception. The crepe material will flatter your best curves and is comfortable enough for all day wear.
