Â by hsp4 love this dress!
i adore this dress. i saw it in the store and think it looks much prettier in person that in the online photos. i thought the dress ran large. i am normally a size 8-10 and I got this dress in a size 4. the zipper is fragile and i have to put it on with the zipper in front and then turn it around. the overlay fabric is fragile because it's 100% silk but I am careful with it and haven't had any problems yet. i am 5'7 and 134lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by perfectionist beautiful color and design, but thin fabric
As soon as this dress showed up online, I purchased it since I like the green color so much. I am 5'5 and about 116lbs. The fit of size 4 is perfect. The color is really pretty. The sheer silk layer looks nice, but it seems very thin and fragile. The silk threads are loosely weaved into the fabric, so it needs to be handled carefully. I put it on and off a few times, then I noticed the threads were either pushed together or pushed away from each other by my fingers. Good thing that I was able to push them back to where they should be. I put on a pair of gloves to handle this dress because I was afraid that some of the thread would be pulled by my nails if there were any sharp edges.
There was another problem with the bust darts. The right side formed a sharp point which points out from the chest. It just didn't look good. I was able to sew it a bit more to smooth out the shape. Now it doesn't look like I have a pointy cone from one of my breasts. I guess this probably varies dress by dress since the dart from my left side looks just fine, but I had to sew a little more to match up the fix I did to the right side.
Anyways, it is a beautiful dress, very feminine. It would be better if the silk used were less fragile as the one used.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by moxieLA Sizing runs small
I loved this dress the second I saw it. I am a pretty standard size 12 and ordered that size. The dress ran small through the bust and ribcage. In fact, I couldn't even zip it. It was roomy everywhere else. Too bad, it's beautiful!
