And it is exactly perfectly wonderfully what I wanted and dreamed of.
One thing, though, was that I didn’t realize how poofy the dress would be on its own, and I had ordered an extra yellow petticoat to go underneath, but it looks a thousand times better without it, so I’m going to see if that can be returned.
This is with the petticoat:
And here is without:
For anyone wondering, it’s the Avila Bay dress, with custom sleeves and no chiffon at the waist. (I also requested buttons to be added to the lace in the back, but you can’t see those in the picture)

It’s really lovely and I have to agree it looks so much better without the underskirt. The underskirt bunches up the dress at the waist, without it your waist look really nice and defined

Definitely no petticoat! Is there a layer of crinoline under the skirt? I would try it without any extra crinoline. So pretty- love the delicate sleeves!!

Agree with the others, no petticoat. I love that dress! So pretty! I’m going to Dolly for my dress too 🙂 Did you have a good experience?

That dress looks great on you! The yellow petti would be fun, but not as flattering as without it.
I have a question for you, if you don’t mind: how tall are you and what size do you typically wear? I’m ordering a custom dress from Dolly with sleeves and I’m just trying to imagine it on me. Feel free to message it to me if you don’t want to post your measurements to the world!
