The dress was shipped on time and is beautiful. The quality of the workmanship exceeded my expectations. I am tall and I love that the dress had extra length that I didn't have to pay for. The size did run a little large but I have a wonderful seamstress that is able to make the adjustments I will need. The dress is so elegant and I can't wait to wear it for my son's wedding. I would order from this designer again and again. Thank you for having the vision to make clothing for women in their 50's that doesn't look like something a grandmother would wear.
