Francesca

With whimsical, yet edgy details and an untraditional and utterly romantic silhouette, the Francesca two-piece was made for the boundless beauty who wants to make a statement. Designed in a beautiful, unique blush hue, our Francesca gown is for the effortlessly cool and chic GLL girl who is anything but conventional.

Beginning with a French Chantilly lace spotted top with a sweetheart lining, trimmed with French eyelash lace capped sleeves, the Francesca two-piece is a feminine and flattering style on any shape. The gathered, full-length skirt, made from a glowing Italian tulle, features a short lace lining to add texture and volume. Designed with a centre front split to showcase your heels, the extravagant skirt extends into an elegant train, which adds a touch of understated drama to this one-of-a-kind gown.

Size + Fit

Our models wear a standard size XS (Australian size 8). Each gown requires particular measurements to be taken, these measurements then determine your dress size. If you are unsure of your dress size, please visit our sizing page to view our measurement charts and a video. Do not worry if you are measuring different dress sizes for different parts of your body, this is common. Our customer care team communicates with you throughout the process.

In between sizes? Each one of our gowns is made from a beautiful stretch French lace, so it all comes down to personal preference. Do it your way, choose whether you’d like a form fitting gown or a more relaxed fit.

The French lace top slides over the head effortlessly and the tulle skirt is easy to step into, with no need for zips or buttons. The cropped top has been handmade with a soft French Chantilly spotted lace, with a feminine sweetheart lining and French eyelash lace capped sleeves. The full-length, Italian tulle skirt has an elasticated waistband and a shorter, French lace lining which reaches mid thigh. The skirt has a centre front split and a graduated hem, which extends into a 40cm train.

Measurements we need:
- Bust
- Under bust
- Waist
- Shoulder to floor height

Stylists' Notes

We envision our Francesca two-piece with the rose gold Flores earrings, as this will compliment the blush hue of the gown. The dramatic centre front split in the glowing tulle skirt will showcase our chic nude Dosa heels perfectly.

What does it feel like to wear?

How long does it take for my dress to be made?
Generally our brides order between 6-24 months in advance. We require a minimum of 5 months to hand make our beautiful dresses. For urgent last minute orders please email info@graceloveslace.com.au

How is my dress made?
All of our dresses are designed and hand made at our studio on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Can I alter the design of my dress?
We would love to give every Grace girl what they request in terms of alterations, however each and every one of our gowns undergo intensive design processes to ensure that the fit, feel and balance of each dress is absolutely perfect. Therefore, we do not offer customisations, unless stated.

What if I lose/gain weight?
Our designs are crafted from luxurious French stretch lace, so often if you drop a size in weight, the original size still fits beautifully. If not, it is also very easy to have the dress altered by a professional seamstress if you would like it to be a little more fitted. Your measurements will determine which size you fall into.

Furthermore, we go to every effort to ensure your dress is the right fit. If you place your order well in advance of your wedding date then we can confirm your size right before your dress goes into production.
