I purchased this in both the cream and black combo, because I couldn't decide on which one to purchase from the images online. I'm glad I ordered both, because the cream combo actually has pastel pink and grey embroidery and not just tone-on-tone cream embroidery. The cream combo is soft and pretty, perfect for spring and summer. The black combo has more of a fall and winter vibe, and the beautifully intricate embroidery just pops in muted purple and rust tones. I'm a petite at 5'2" so an XSmall hangs longer on me than the model, with the front edge going below my knees and the back edge just above my ankles. The style is flowy and the fabric lays beautifully. Love the super long sleeves. The lining is the typical FP cotton lining that doesn't stretch. Hook and eyes close the bodice above the drawstring that ties right below your bustline. This is a gorgeous dress in either color. If you're looking at an XSmall, here are the dimensions of the one I received:
bust all around: 38"
drawstring area uncinched: 36"
hip 12" from drawstring: 60"
sleeve length from shoulder seam: 24"
front length from neckline: 29"
back length from neckline: 46"

Â by amorediarte So bummed out. :(
I was so excited to get this dress. I'm about to get married and I thought this would be a beautiful dress to wear before donning my gown or during our weekend away. I waited for weeks for it to come back in to stock so I could order it! It looks so pretty in the pictures...!
But these catalog pictures are incredibly misleading. This dress is not all white, or even as close to all white as the photos suggest. The flowers are soft pink and the stems a soft green. The final added picture starts to hint at it, but the filter is overdone. I would guess that the studio light washed out a lot of the colors or a filter change altered it to appear less saturated.
This product is not what I expected to get based on the photos. The material is soft, it is very nice, but it is very thin. It is no where near as white as what the photos suggest. Therefore the dress does not appear as opaque as in these photos.
Not the dress's fault is that the sleeves were too short. I am 6ft and I have long arms. These sleeves stopped about half an inch above the bend of my wrist on the short side, which naturally rests on the top of the arm.
Overall, I was very disappointed. I wanted the dress in the picture so bad and for the price I was willing to spend, I'm afraid I can't settle. Dress was returned. :,(
[Please offer pictures of how the dress will naturally sit. Your models and clothing are sexy! But we're not going to be walking around hiking our hems up (All the time. ;)]
I hope that helps!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Avita An exciting surprise!
I was immediately drawn to this dress when I first saw it online, but thought it would look a bit too costume-y, folk-y, whimsical for someone in their late 20s/early 30s, who wasn't traipsing through a field chasing fairies, or riding their unicorn or something. Haha. But the design stuck in my mind, and I kept wondering about it. When I saw it in the store and finally tried it on, I was really surprised and excited when I saw that it is a bit more understated in person, and has a lovely fall feel to it. The embroidery on the dark color comes off as more genuine, as opposed to the hoakey 'trying too hard' vibe that can sometimes come along with a dress like this. The fit is very flattering too, and I am large chested; it doesn't overwhelm and it has a lot of movement, so it tows the line of 'statement' vs. 'too much' in terms of its look very very well. Glad I took the risk and tried it on, cause I think I might be in love. Gotta go find me a fairy field now!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by caligirlqt Tight in the bust
Ladies if you have boobs, and are short this dress is not for you. I'm a 38 D and it was so unflatteringly tight. Too bad very pretty dress. If you are tall and lean or short with not much on top then go for it. High low dresses are a hit and miss with me. Usually they are not recommended for us shorties...ha...ha...but it was worth the try.

Love it. Fits perfect. Hate that it has to be hand washed, and can not be dry cleaned. Other than that it is great. I am ordering the white as soon as it is back in stock.

Wish I could get it in the white too, but alas, it's a messy world out there. Black is my favorite anyway, and this is the perfect dress for fall, even while it's still warm. I figured a Small would work better while Medium is my usual FP size. And I guessed right. The sleeves aren't quite as long on me as they are on the model, but back to it being a messy world, super long sleeves are more likely to end up in my chili. And I don't even like chili.
