    Reviewer: Ria (Aberdeen, UK)

    Delighted with our dresses, we had to have very slight alterations done, but nothing major, just a nip/tuck in a couple of places. To have a bit of a contrast we had new belts made for them in purple, as we both have our birthdays in February and our birth stone is amethyst. They were greatly admired by all who saw them, we couldn't be happier :-)

    Reviewer: Shelley M (Gurnee, IL)

    Many many compliments on the dress. The fit was great. Minor issues - didn't know belt would be non-adjustable. Took a tuck in it and stitched it to the back of the belt. The neckline is very wide, so that even with taping bra straps to the edge of my shoulders, it could slip far enough over for a strap to show. One of the buttons, pretty much mid back, fell off. Luckily someone found it and found me. I never felt a thing! I did not receive an extra button & swatch as the reviewer above did. That said, a cool dress that I could be sure wouldn't be repeated still gives it five stars for me.

    Reviewer: Jackie K (Bay City, MI)

    I loved this dress so much, I bought two!! It's gorgeous and they did not skimp on the material, that's for sure!!! The skirt is as full as could be!! The only complaint I have is in both dresses the back feels tight. I actually had to get a larger size than I wear, so going even bigger wouldn't be an option. I also had to reinforce the buttons, but that's not a big deal and definitely worth it so you don't lose one. They send an extra button and swatch of fabric. I used part of my blue fabric to make a fascinator.


    Q: Can the skirt be made shorter?Thank you.Rebecca~

    A: Yes! We can alter the length for a $20.00 fee, and it will make the item non-returnable/exchangeable.

    Q: Hi - Can you ship to the UK? If so how much would it cost? Also, can you put different arms on it? Thanks Sue

    A: Yes, we can ship to the UK. Shipping costs for the dress only is $45.95 and does not include custom and duty taxes. We can generally put in another sleeve for a 15.00 fee. Production has the final say on what type of sleeve.

    What size should I order?

    Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size, or give us a call to assist you (1-800-452-5925). You may also email us at with your measurements (bust and waist) and we can help you choose the nearest size.

    An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this. But please, give us a call if you are uncertain.

    In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.

    Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.
