Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stegosaurus Stunning!
I have this dress in black and have received MANY compliments so far. The dress is very long, and it also "grows" a bit during wear due to the weight of the crochet. It's not super-heavy material but it's not cheap, which helps prevent snags. Very very comfortable and versatile. I will love throwing this on over leggings and long sleeves in colder weather.

This is a beautifully made maxi dress. The knitting is soft and sturdy. The color says "multi" and I was hoping that the background color was black, but it actually is a really dark midnight blue in the sunlight. The trim colors are brighter in person. The lines that run around the designwork and around the waist is a hot pink. The medallions are black, light coral, navy blue, hot pink, and medium purple. Since it is an open weave, a slip or a romper are a must. I purchased an XSmall and here are the dimensions of the one I received:
bust all around: 35"
waist all around: 28"
sleeve length from pink line of shoulder trim: 7"
length from back of neck: 52"
There is a little give since it is a knit. I'm a petite at 5'2", and the dress hem sits right at my ankle. I'm sure gravity will pull it down with wear, because it is a little on the heavier side.

I put runs large, though it is not loose, it fits me perfectly, but I snagged the last one in the store, an XS, and I usually wear a SM. This is stunning and I don't even want to tell you the sale price in the store! Less than on here. I love love love this and cannot wait until spring so I can rock it!

First of all, the fit is perfect. I normally wear a small in free people and ordered small in this dress. Love the way it fits.
The length is funny. I've heard crochet will "grow"? So hopefully it grows quite a bit, because it only hits at mid-calf right now (I just received it) I'm five foot 10, so I'm probably similar height and size to the model and yet it's several inches shorter than in the pictures. I'd really like a maxi dress to hit the floor.
Even with the length being off, it's super pretty. Note that you will definitely need a slip underneath. It's completely sheer and won't look the way it does in the pics unless you add a slip. Luckily I have one.
Overall I love it, but I'm glad I got the sale price. For 300 dollars I would definitely be sending it back, but for the sale price I feel like it's ok that it's not exactly perfect but still really pretty.

I wanted this dress from the moment I saw it online. It is crochet and has a pretty pattern. I even love the name. Who doesn't want to wear a fairy tale? I have an hour glass figure and have some bumps I would like to hide. This dress accentuates every lump and bump going down my body. It also is baggy on top, but tight on my hips. The length hits me at a very weird spot. If this dress was shorter or just a skirt, I would pounce on it. I wear a medium and that is what I bought. So sad to be returning this, because I thought it would be my favorite purchase.
