Add a sash
I ordered this by mail to try on, put it on, and decided immediately against it because it looked like it would need a lot of alterations (taking in at the sides, perhaps somehow removing some fabric from the front). And then, later that evening, I decided to try it on again and added a sash, for kicks. A wide sash COMPLETELY changes how this dress fits and gets rid of the look of slightly too much fabric in the front of the dress. With a sash, I actually love it-the daisy centers (they're clusters of pink beads) are adorable, the dress has a built in basically back bra strap to make it stay up in the back, and for a strapless it stays quite put. It also hits at a flattering length. I'm 6', ~145 lbs. and it would not need alterations. It's back in the running!

This dress is very delicate and gorgeous. Its almost retro 50's style. I love the below the knee length and the chiffon like fabric. I'm so glad I grabbed this. As is with most side zips, it runs a tad small in the bodice.

A bit of an odd fit
I ordered a size 4 (as per the chart) in this dress, which fit big around both bust and waist.The dress did bubble in the front, which was odd, but I think with proper alterations or smaller size it might have sat differently. Overall, the dress is very pretty, and nicely made. I love the tulle on the dress, and the daisy pattern with the pink beads makes it fun and playful. The beads are the exact color pink as shown in the photo on model. I decided against this dress, because it would need major alterations, both taking in the sides as well needing to shorten it considerably. Iâ??m 5â??3 and this dress practically came down to my ankles. I didn't feel comfortable with the idea of relying on alterations, and risking the integrity of the original design.
