I ordered a custom short, white party dress from Milly Bridal for various wedding-related events. After 45+ days of patient waiting, I received images of the final dress & I am so, so happy. What do you guys think?

So here’s an update after I received the dress:
I received the dress right around Labor Day. I’ve been holding off on posting this because I wanted to see if Milly Bridal would fix the mistake they made. They won’t. I took the dress out of the bag and immediately realized they ignored my explicit instructions about the organza. The organza starts at the top of the satin bodice. I wanted the organza to go OVER the bodice. Lily (the representative) said the factory understood this, and it’s hard to see in the photos they sent, but ultimately, they did not make the dress the way I wanted.
Still, it’s a very pretty dress and I thought, “Well, close enough. I won’t make a mountain out of a molehill.” Except then I tried the dress on… and it didn’t zip up. I thought, “Maybe I’ve gained some weight?” I whipped out the tape measure. Nope, my waist is still 28.5 inches. I submitted 29 inches as my waist measurement to Milly Bridal, just in case. Milly Bridal screwed up the measurement.
I immediately e-mail Lily, who told me the factory made the dress to 29 inches. She requested I send a picture of the dress, so I turned the dress inside out, wrapped a tape measure loosely around it: 28 inches. Lily said the measurement was inaccurate, could I please try the dress on to get the measurement. No, Lily, I can’t. The dress doesn’t zip up! It’s glaringly obvious that a 29″-waist dress would zip up on my 28.5″ waist, and since it does not, the dress does not measure 29″.
So what am I left with? Milly Bridal will continue to make excuses, the dress will not be fixed and I have a dress I cannot wear.

That’s so upsetting! It’s so pretty too. I can’t believe they would mess up the waist measurement so much.
