My sister’s dress came in today, exactly one month from ordering it. We did a custom size for her because she is tiny but has a large chest so we were worried that a non-custom size would fit wonky. They did sew it exactly to her measurements so if you order, make sure to measure twice! I did give her an extra half inch in the waist (shhh don’t tell her!) because I wanted to make sure she had some give if she happens to add a few pounds in the winter. The sewing is fantastic. I have NO complaints (I did go over it with a fine tooth comb) about seams, zipper, hem etc. The dress is double lined which is wonderful. The fabric is a good quality and something that will wear very well. They even put darts in which surprised me. The dress came with a single layer of crinoline to help give it some volume. BUT-I thought she looked entirely too much like Judy Jetson (old lady reference lol) so I removed it with a seam ripper. It was very easy to remove so no worries there!
My one complaint is that the color the dress was shown in is NOTHING like the color she received. My monitor is color calibrated, so I did expect something very different. But, she’s not an actual attendant so it’s not like I am going to have to worry about her not matching. I am a bit bummed about the color but I think I will get over it. So, without further ado here is the pic from the website:
And here is the dress she got today:
crappy phone pic FTW! Fresh out of the bag so it is not pressed. But I wanted to give the review while it was fresh on my mind. I will be ordering my DD’s dresses from dressilyme.com because I am very happy with the finished product and the customer service. I hope this review helps another Bee out!
