Not the same quality as other dresses

I was really disappointed with this purchase. It came with multiple small white spots where color was missing on the skirt part of the dress. When I reached out to support with a photo included, I was told that these are "normal parts of the dress". For $60, this should absolutely not be the case. It also faded significantly after the first wash (I followed the care instructions provided). For $60, I was expecting a lot higher quality. Very disappointed because I really wanted to like this.

Judging this book by the way it covers

The sizing on this dress is deeply flawed. I sized up; up by several sizes, and while the top was extraordinarily baggy and needs to be taken in, the printed portion on the bottom is tight around my hips and bottom. I should have at least 10-12” of spare room, but this is not the case. I wish I hadn’t wasted my money on an unwearable product.

I love the dress but not where it hits!

The dress is lovely, comfortable and well-made. Unfortunately it is not a great silhouette for me because the waist doesn't hit at my natural waist (I am 5'2). I am going to wear it anyway, but probably always with a cardigan to disguise the sort of weird bulge that shows up at my midsection. I have a fit and flare dress that fits a little better.

practical, fits great, get a lot of compliments on the pattern

fits curves like a charm. pockets fit phone and other small objects easily. fabric is light but durable.
