I shortened the dress about 2.5 inches.
I’ve been wanting this dress since I saw it in People Style Watch in July. It’s in the Steve and Barry’s stores now, but beware of inconsistent sizing. Not only did I have to go up a size from what I normally wear, but I had to try on three dresses, all marked the same size, in order to find one that fit. The hips and busts varied wildly from dress to dress. I wouldn’t consider myself well-endowed on top, but I had a hard time finding a dress that would zip up! If you’re busty, it may be hopeless.
