Beautiful -- as shown
July 4, 2013
beautiful dress -- beautiful color. If the lighting is not good, it looks darker, but in good lighting and especially in the sunlight, it is just as it looks in the pictures.
Only complaint (minor) is the sleeves -- they are more like very wide straps that can be pulled over to look like sleeves... but little girls are not likely to cooperate and they will probably lift arms/shrug shoulders to get the sleeves to bunch up and stay on top of the shoulders, like a strap instead of a sleeve. The way to remedy this (if you really want it to have sleeves) is to alter it and add a stiff fabric liner under the fabric to old it in a "fanned-out" position, which is what we're doing. But the dress is so gorgeous, it's absolutely worth it.
On tall skinny girls (like mine), it may be a little short... may have to let it out a little to look the best, or perhaps buy a size bigger and take in the waist/torso.
We bought 6 dresses, sizes 2,4,6,8,8,10. All were flawless. Thanks!
