Josee

With chic, bohemian details and an unforgettably unique silhouette, the Josee is a classic GLL gown that can be handed down for generations to come. Created for the stylish, effortless beauty, the gypsy-like skirt of the Josee is unlike any other. Handmade with panels of French lace and embroidery, designed for endless twirling and dancing, you will never want to take this dress off.

The Josee is a gown that was made for the GLL girl who appreciates beautifully delicate French lace. Beginning with a fitted, strapless bodice with an intricate scalloped finish, with side boning and rubber seaming to ensure a perfect fit, the Josee gown is an effortlessly romantic dress that is comfortable and fun to wear. The stretch lace armbands, connected under the arm, make this feminine, strapless gown even more unique. The extravagant skirt, handmade with panels of mix-matched French lace and embroidery, cascades down the body and creates beautiful movement.

Size + Fit

Our models wear a standard 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 Josee stretches over the head and down the body with no need for zips or buttons. The bodice is fitted and features side boning and rubber seaming to ensure a comfortable fit. The fine lace armbands stretch on and off, but are connected under the arms. Our Josee gown features a combination of French laces and embroidery. The lace on the bodice has a floral pattern with an intricate scallop edge and a matte finish with just a hint of a pearly gloss. The panels of lace on the skirt have a fine floral pattern, with a thin gloss thread and a slight pearl finish.

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

Stylists' Notes

We envision our Josee gown with the chic Gabriela veil, which was made particularly for this dress. The Colette veil, styled with the Maya earrings and the Hera or Venus anklets would be perfect for the carefree, barefoot GLL girl.

Special Notes + Questions

Can I wear a bra?
You can wear a strapless or adhesive bra with the Josee gown for shape and support.

What underwear do I wear?
We recommend wearing skin coloured, seamless underwear.

Is the dress see-through at all?
The Josee is fully lined with light polyester.

What does it feel like to wear?
The Josee is a beautiful, fun dress to wear. With a lavish skirt made from panels of lace and embroidery, this gown has been designed for endless dancing and twirling. The bodice has side boning and rubber seaming to ensure a comfortable fit.

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.
