This is a lovely colour and the lacy fabric overall is lovely. One criticism is the join at the side seams - very clumsy. However, the style overall would've been perfect, but the waist - like others have said before - is not good. Not sure if it's meant to be cinched in and therefore a bouson effect to the top (in which case it's way to short) or why the elastication is there at all. Would've been much better without the waist there at all, and made in one long sheath. Sadly been returned for this reason. Would've made a lovely wedding outfit otherwise.
