This dress is fantastic but I definitely can’t take it on trips. It’s just too heavy for my luggage!
I love this dress! It is the same style as the purple striped Corpse Bride dress and they're both so comfy. Heavy material, pockets, and a comfortable length.
38-30-44 and I bought a medium.
The fabric on this dress is so buttery and the dress is heavy. There is a liner and it too is soft and comfy. I wore it last night to an outdoor wedding, it was a cold breezy 48 degree evening and I stayed warm with proper layers.
The collar has eye hooks to keep closed, and I am going to remove the one on the back, it catches my hairline as I have a short neck, and it pulls my hair. Mine also came with a pocket not fully sewn shut, but this was one of the last in my size and so I decided to just sew it shut myself instead of not being able to get a replacement. LFEN offered to pay for a seamstress to fix it, which is nice. The intersting aspect of this is that the liner is sewn into the hemline, which is great as your skirt layers don't get tangled when dancing around bonfires and stumbling over harvest fields, did I mention I wore it to a cool outdoor wedding last night?
The cut is so flattering and gives a super feminine silhouette to the wearer. The shoulder pads help make a wide hipped gal like me look more like I have an hourglass figure instead of pear shape. Gotta love that. The skirt is so lovely. There is not too much fabric where it feels bulky, yet enough to give the skirt oomph and yet it falls nicely. I love the sleeves. The slight puff at the shoulder, the 3/4 length, and the detailing at the cuff of pleated fabric. That pleat is firm, yet the fabric there is not scratchy or annoying. The fabric on this dress is AH-MAZINGLY soft... So comfy.
I recommend this dress for anyone who loves a Victorian influence on a modern dress. The design is rather creative that way, and I love it so much.
It has pockets!!!
I love this style, it's really comfortable to wear and feels cosy for Autumn weather. It's Victorian gothic but also looks contemporary at the same time. It looks great with fancy tights and boots! It's made from a nice soft ponte and as it's lined, the dress has some weight to it. There's even a velvet ribbon trim on the ruffles which gives it a touch of luxury.
In terms of sizing, I sized down to a small as there's a decent amount of stretch and no waist seam (I'm 35-30-40 and usually wear a medium). My only niggle was that because of the high neck, I found the zip fiddly to do up on my own.
Would love to see this style in another colour like oxblood, purple or dark green.
Really makes you feel special and unique. Love the design ❤️❤️
