Promising review: “I love this dress! I am really happy with the quality and price. The fabric is thick and the print is just as it's pictured. As for the size, I'm between a M and L and went with a M, which fits perfectly because the fabric stretches just enough to be very flattering. I'm ordering another pattern.
