I so wanted to love this dress, but the material is some of the most thin stuff I have ever seen. As in, a pair of nylons would almost be thicker. I would have to wear a slip, which defeats the purpose of a summer dress. Also, the elastic on the sleeves makes the frilly parts stand up strangely, so it has a decidedly juvenile feel. I would be willing to pay a bit more for this dress if they had made it out of better quality fabric.
