Syncopated Swing Dress
Elegantly made but larger than expected.
32B, 25, 36; purchased size 2. The sash, unlike in the pictures, was fully finished--not deconstructed or frayed. Sash is also attached at sides. (The bows are as pictured.)
Quality and weight of fabric is significant. Pics suggest a flimsy charmeuse but the fabric has much more drape and heft to it, albeit less sheen under normal lighting--as with the blonde model. Pockets are a lovely touch.
So beautifully made, but best suited to voluptuous frames. The full skirt especially would benefit from some counter-ballancing from above. I'm entirely too slight to do this dress justice, but the color and craftsmanship are wonderful.
Side note: beware the vinyl bag it arrives in! I had to remove the dress immediately and take the bag outside. The dress I left to breath for a bit before trying on.
