    I feel like the bodice looks really short. The proportions look off to me…

    I think it looks amazingly similar!  Gorgeous and such a bargain!

    It is quite similar and nice, however I do not think it will look the same as in the orginial maggie picture because the bodice piece looks way too short and the bottom with the pickups is going to be up around your waist. If you like that though, the it should be good!

    The dress is beautiful.  There are a number of inaccuracies but at this price it is definitely worth it 🙂  If you want accuracy, put the 2 photos side by side and compare in similar scale and angle.  Here are some of my observations: there should probably be 7 pleats for the bodice followed by lace and a sash, and they seem to have made 5 pleats and the sash is a bit too wide compared to the original.  Some of the bubbles for the skirt do not lay in the correct general direction (especially the first layer, on the left side of the dress) but this part is usually very difficult in dress construction.  Make sure they measure the dress length for the front with a larger underskirt/petticoat though, the petticoat they used seem to give volume smaller than the original.  And the original seems to be a drop waist and they appear to have made it normal waist. But definitely a good job considering the first set of photos.  How about photos for the back?

    The craftsmanship looks good to me, but I think the pick ups at the top of the skirt are way too big and blousy, but maybe they’ll settle down a little?  Or maybe you prefer it that way?  Just my taste 🙂

    I agree that the bodice looks really short compared to the original, but maybe it’ll fit you perfectly once you receive it.  The only thing that matters is that YOURE happy!
