So I’ll keep this short and sweet but with tons of pics!
I bought this dress from the limited. With the virtual dollars and shipping, it came to $83. (damn! its $60 now!)
it came shipped in its own box. no exterior box… was a bit banged up, but the cardboard and paper protected it.
i didnt get a fancy white box with a bow, but i DID get a garment bag. which i plan to use!!
Thank you note from The limited..
Back and front……. it was a bit long! I’m 5′ 7″ and i plan to wear flats. This dress was a full 4 inches too long for me.
i wish it has more poof…. a crinoline would work… i guess….
i will say that the flower was extremely well sewn on. it took me a while to get it off with my seam ripper. its sewn in a spiral onto the dress….
This is how it looks on my Dressmaking Form
SO… my issues were
1. The top was too large. I ordered a size 2 for my hips and waist and the top was really big. I will take it in.
2. I wish it had a train and i wish it had more poof.. i have plans to add one and use a petticoat.
3. i want sleeves or a cape, so i plan to make a lace one….
Below are possible changes! Nothing is permanent yet.. just pinned on.
the sash is a white scarf and the flower is a hairclip as a placeholder for a cute sash. haha the cap sleeves are the unraveled flower.
i prefer the cape look… I added the ruffles to the edges.. ehh…
And this is how its sat in my room for 4 days… I have an Appointment at David’s Bridal this weekend. I am starting not to like this dress so much, so I hope i find something at DB. This dress can be my rehearsal dress! 🙂 Sorry for all the pics… but i wanted to share!!
and i’d love your thoughts!! 🙂
