Rated 3 out of 5Â by Zuzu2 Detail issues
Sachin Babi redesigned last year's 5-star Flora Confetti dress and came up with this alternative. This style doesn't strike quite the right note. The colors/print are flatter and more pastel. The elastic waistband and waist ruffle add volume and bulk to hips. Even on a size 0, it's unflattering. The ruffles are too busy. The original float/swing dress was phenomenal. Bring back that style! My daughter loves mine (from last year) on me and wants one like or similar. I ordered this alternative, and sadly, it disappointed and was returned. No issues with Sachin Babi quality. It's superb. This style is just overly detailed with frou frou.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Canada1 Neat idea - not sure about petite frames
I'm 5'4", 105lbs and the 2P fit very comfortably. I had to belt the dress with a wider belt and even with my small frame it looked lovely and chic. When wearing it the back looked tailored and pretty; however, the top half in the front looked like I was a kid wearing my mother's dress. I'm exaggerating a little. My narrow shoulders and wider set bust needed more frills near the center of my chest...these frills are wider and leave a smooth area in the center that I cannot fill.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ArtfulOwl Cute Dress but runs large!
I tried this on in a regular size 2 because petite sizing wasn't available in my local store. For reference, I am 5'1'', 118 lbs, and usually a 4P/SP. I think the dress runs quite big, as there was still room to spare in the size 2. Overall, I would definitely want to purchase in petite sizing. I love the delicate floral pattern, and the fabric feels feels great on. I was worried that the ruffles would not be that flattering but I was surprised by the fact that they did not appear to add bulk. That being said, the dress was a tad overwhelming for my petite frame, and I would like to see how all the ruffles look like in the petite sizing. Length-wise, it hit me at my knees. The arm holes did not gape. Overall, this is a pretty dress but am waiting for now for it to go on sale.
