Pretty Dress, but Low Quality
Let me bias this review by disclosing that I sew a lot of my own clothes, so I notice construction details that others might now. I received this dress in the SR and SL. immediately, I noticed a water stain on the hem of the SL, so that ruled that out. I've never received a dress from RTR with any visible damage, so this was a first. I rolled with it, and tried on the SR, which worked fine with the heels I'd chosen. In the cab on the way to the wedding reception, I noticed that the seam connecting the blue and white sections was beginning to fray and pull away from the rest of the dress in places. On further inspection, I noticed the dress had been repaired already along the hemline for this exact issue. It made me exceptionally nervous that I'd do further damage to the dress over the course of the evening. Fortunately, I didn't, but while this dress looks beautiful from a distance, there are some obvious quality issues that would make me hesitant to recommend it to others. Shocking, considering this is Lilly.
