I ordered a size 4 due to the reconditions on the sizing chart. I ended up sending it back after ordering a 0 as the 4 was too large. This dress is AMAZING. It was a little long so my alterations lady was able to use the fabric she took off of the length to make small cap sleeves. The fabric isn't too heavy and is breathable. I received so many compliments on this dress, one of which "It looks like you just stepped out of the 1920's, magnificent!". This dress has a classic vintage feel, highly recommend!

I wore my dress for a relaxed beach resort wedding.
It was perfect for me, and when it arrived it superseded my expectation regarding the fabric and the way it flowed.
It fitted exactly true to my size in Norway, 36/38, US size 8. The bodice fitted so well that I could wear it without the slightest alteration, and the rest could have fitted anybody. It was the length of a supermodel, so be ready to wear heels. but it is also easy to take up beneath.
I am now looking into taking it up to a short dress for a big friendsÂ´wedding party we are throwing.

Like a Fairy Tale
This was the only dress I tried on, it was unexpected but something spoke to me immediately when I saw it! The color was everything I had hoped for, a soft nude and less pink than it looks on the website. It was light and breathable and I'd say its very true to size - I had minimal alterations in the bust and had my corset sewn in for support. The dress was miles too long when it arrived so we had each tier raised just enough to let it drag the ground over my bare feet. At the last minute, I had one of the two layers of tulle taken out and I'm glad I did. (It flowed much nicer than with the crunchy stuff!) I've never felt more like a princess and received some compliments of a lifetime on my beautiful day..it was a perfect rustic fairy tale.

Beautiful gown, unique color
Gorgeous gown. It's perfect for my woodland wedding. The color is more interesting than the photos--a sort of mauve/beige/blush with casts of grey in the embroidery--very soft and antiquey. I'm 5'4'' and 120, got a 4 which will need minimal alterations in the bodice although I probably could have gotten away with a 2. The natural waistline falls at just the right place. A friend suggested having the entire bottom tier take off (I'm going to be barefoot and I'm not very tall to begin with!), but I haven't gotten it to the tailor yet to see how it'll work. Thrilled to have found this--it's more beautiful than I imagined!
