 Starburst Pleated Shift
Starburst Pleated Shift
We love the simplicity and wear-again practicality of shifts; this silk-linen one has those qualities, but is finished with unexpected pleating at the side that pulls the eye to the sash-nipped waist and lends just a bit of movement to the straight skirt below. Back zip. Silk, linen; acetate lining. Dry clean. Imported. A Quillaree original, made exclusively for BHLDN Falls 21" from natural waist Also available in black, wheat and abstract floral print

Beautiful fabric, not good for taller girls
Looking at the model, you would think that this dress would be stunning on someone who is tall. I'm 6' and a true size 6. I ordered this in an 8 based on reviews. I found that even the lining was gigantic on me, and the seem on the waist hit me WAY too high (under my ribs instead of anywhere near my natural waist). Perhaps I could have returned and gotten a size 6 and done some major alterations by adding fabric to the straps and taking in the lining, but decided to find anther purple dress. If you are tall or have tall bridesmaids, I'd look for something else.
Otherwise the fabric and design is gorgeous. If they happen to re-design I'd order in a heartbeat. Shorter girls, order now!
