I purchased this dress to wear to my husbands first dinner party at the Big Bosses house. I received lots of compliments on the fabric and colors. I loved the fun look it has and I do not see how someone would have a problem with caring for it. My sister also borrowed it to go out in and she soaked it in Woolite and it stayed looking awesome! I want to thank you for getting the dress here on time and for the careful packaging. It was packed very neatly. Thanks for making our first dinner party a great one.
