"This dress is every bit as stunning as depicted in the preview...more so in fact! The green part is velvety with glittery swirls and sequin trim. I thought it looked more like satin in the preview, so this was a pleasant surprise. I should have noticed that the preview of the back of the dress doesn't show a zipper! I didn't realize this until I went to try it on my 18-month-old. I had to undo the lace on the bodice to get it over her head, then hope she'd stand still long enough for me to lace it up again just right. I also noticed that the stitching near the shoulders was coming loose. I'll be able to fix it if it comes undone completely, but it's still a disappointment. The headband was sewn so that there's a half-twist in the elastic, so it won't lie completely flat on my daughter's head. It arrived somewhat rumpled due to packaging, but I hung it up in the bathroom while I took a hot shower and that did the trick. The dress fit well on my taller-than-average tot. Looks great with silver shoes and tights! Overall I think it's a great dress but a tad overpriced, especially with the quality concerns."
