The dress was to long for a petite. I also don't like the lining showing at the cuff and hem line. I think it would look better on a taller person. great price
The dress met my expectation, not surprising since I have always liked Jessica Howard dresses--fit and style. The zipper does stick on this dress and I would have returned it, except for the time element.
I bought this for my daughter to wear as a "going away" dress after her wedding reception. Unfortunately I had to return this dress and look for something else. The fabric is lovely, the color is rich and creamy ivory, and the silk is textured and drapes nicely. The overall style is very pretty and should be flattering to many body types. The dress failed in two areas: 1. The sizing is not accurate. The bodice and waist were much larger than they should have been, causing the top to gap in such a way that it would be impossible to avoid a "wardrobe malfunction". 2. The straps are either made of the wrong material or are attached improperly. My daughter slipped into the dress and as soon as the strap hit her shoulder it popped loose from the bodice of the dress. If the dress had fit properly, we would have considered just figuring out how to sew it back into the seam...but I'm not sure it would have stayed in place well because the fabric frayed easily and there wasn't much substance to the strap to sew through.
