Rated 3 out of 5 by CoconutDream Pretty but has issues
I think this is a unique idea and I like the use of beading in a casual dress, but I'm disappointed that it just doesn't seem as pretty as in the pictures. There is so much gathering at the waist that it's hard to see the full design on the skirt and it runs kind of large which is unfortunate if you already wear the smallest size and can't size down. I'm also disappointed that the way the pattern is sewn on the dress is different in the pictures. The actual dress has a hard line where the pattern just cuts off to white on the bodice which isn't as elegant looking as in the pictures where they blended it in better. I wish the designer used the actual dress you would be receiving in the promotional pictures.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MNgal1234 Not as expected
I've had this dress on my wishlist for awhile and finally purchased it. Unfortunately, I'll be sending it back. First, it runs large. I'd like to think it's my diet working, but it really is just too big. There's also way too much fabric in the skirt. It looks pretty blowing in the wind in the photo, but I live in MN--not on a windy beach. The colors were really pretty but overall the dress was an awkward fit.

I've been waiting for this dress to come out since I saw it being worked on in Yoana Baraschi's Design studio. It is the perfect light weight material, while still being heavy enough to not feel like it's going to blow away. In love with the pattern and the intricate beading on the dress. If I had to choose only one dress to wear all summer-this would definitely be the one!
