This is such a perfect dress during this time of the year! I wore this dress on New Year's Eve & I received countless compliments. I am 5'2" so the dress was very, very long; I had to have it shortened & I had to shorten the beige lining under the dress as well to fit my proportion. Once it was altered, it was beautiful. I would recommend having the dress altered by an expert tailor due to the intricate lace edge & lining which need to be cut perfectly. I loved this dress, very flattering on, & would highly recommend it.
