A little disappointed
I ordered this dress in a size 6 and it fit me really well except for the slip. The slip (the lining inside the dress) was two sizes too small, according to the seamstress who altered it for me. Thinking it was a mistake, I ordered an 8 which was too big for me, but oddly enough, the slip was again way too small. I'm not entirely sure why it is cut that way. I had a couple of girl friends try the dress on too and it was also an issue. I ended up having to pay quite a bit to get the dress altered to fit me correctly.
Other than that, the dress is gorgeous. Nice material. The pockets are a fun touch and the length is great. I ended up pairing it with a blazer for a wedding. Beautiful color too, a true "mustard/gold," not too yellowy!
I'm 5'6 with a curvy figure and I was afraid the straight shift cut wouldn't work on me but I was pleasantly surprised that it did!
I definitely recommend it, just be cautious of the lining!
