Rated 2 out of 5Â by VelvetGirl really wanted to love it...
First: the material is not jersey, as described. It is a substantial woven material with a nice drape. Very very pretty, but...
The quality issues:
1.. The top "X" across the bodice drooped! It looked horrible! I couldn't make the strips lay taut, even though the underlying bodice was taut. It was not because the dress was too big, it was just made that way.
2. There is no stretch, and the 12 was too tight around the arms for me (I am generally a 12-14 in a dress.)
3. I thought I'd be stuck wearing the dress forever and ever after, because the side zipper stuck fast at the top side of the "X" and I couldn't take it off!! I started getting quite worried. It wasn't jammed, the zipper is just is of poor quality and couldn't get past those extra layers of fabric. It wouldn't budge.
Hopefully you are looking for a dress of woven material, and yours won't have these same quality issues. I finally managed to get the dress off, and it is going back.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by CelluloidFancy Lost in Translation
A wonderful concept dress that has a very modern greek goddess feel to it! The wildflower patterned fabric is a bit heavy, but soft to the touch and very flowy and comfortable. It is really so visually beautiful to see the orange colored fabric combined with the stark dark black criss-cross straps!
Unfortunately, the black criss-cross straps do not stay in place and the fabric gathers and bunches between the straps - all around the upper torso. I am sure this was not suppose to be the case, but I could find a way to make it lay properly. It requires a lot of re-arranging and even then the result is very unflattering. The zipper is also very hard to open and close. It was not an easy dress to get into or out of.
In the end I returned it as the it required altering and too much effort. The dress would be perfect if not for the design of the straps. I was VERY dissappointed as a it IS an amazing dress!

I saw this dress online and once again ordered my usual size 0 and when it arrived i tried it on and it fit exactly as it looks in the picture. It is very pretty and feminine and well made. It is not a dress that will look good on larger frames because there is no stretch if you are slender and have a smaller frame in general it should fit very well. You do not have to be tall as I am only 5'5" and weigh about 115 it looks great on me. It is a lovely dress and I am glad i bought it.
