Â by Seepocke Cute dress
I love the fabric of this dress - the color is gorgeous and the sequins add a really glamorous touch to it. However, I have to agree with some of the reviewers that the fit is a bit odd. First of all it is pretty short (I am 5'9'', 130lbs and wearing a size 8 in the pic). Other than that the waist is a problem, like other customers have mentioned. It did make my waist look much bigger than it normally is. I am still keeping the dress because it is very pretty and great for holiday parties but it is definitely not the most flattering I have worn.
Some other reviewers mentioned the material being scratchy around the waist. I have not noticed anything like that so far.

This dress is beautiful and I really enjoyed the look of it. The only reason I submitted my first review is because the stitching that is hidden by the waist sash, is unbearable. The inside lining of the dress is below and above this stitching, but the stitching itself is coarse and rough against your skin. And I mean against your skin....on the inside of the dress. After trying it on for 3 minutes, I had red scratch marks on my waist. I couldn't imagine wearing it to an event...especially if there was dancing involved. Ouch! It's so unfortunate because the dress again is just awesome. If you can figure out a way to stop the scratching, then it's a must buy/keep. For me, and my waist, it's going back.

I live overseas and took the risk of ordering this online. Beautiful color and details. It was a little wide around the area where it gathered around the waist so I had it altered at the waist. If I had more time, I would have tried another size (a 4 instead of a 6). I have an hourglass shape so I think my body shape had more to do with the alterations than the design itself. It made a huge difference. I wore it to an office party and received compliments.
As for the scratchy seam that has been mentioned, I didn't notice it. I did feel that the elastic waist isn't that attractive and I had to make sure the sash covered it.
