Just got this dress in the mail (quick shipping!!) and tried it on. I bought one size up (L) so it fit great. The shirring on the front and the sleeves are gorgeous, and the skirt is nice and airy. Just one problem: the back of the dress is NOT LINED. It's basically transparent. Tags, bra straps, tights are visible (at least in White.) Rather than return the dress I ordered a basic white leotard to wear underneath. They really should double the fabric on both front and back of this dress. Then it would be absolutely perfect!
The dress runs a little small, the white was VERY see through in the back. The front was lined but the back the fabric was too thin to really be enough coverage. The skirt was beautiful and moves well.
I bought this dress in deep purple for a national Fine Arts competition between churches. The judges were very pleased with the neckline/length, yet the fit didn't restrict movement. Very comfortable to dance in, and the double layer skirt was so floaty - it looked amazing during kicks and turns! The only downside is the sleeves. I was hoping actually stay as sleeves, but as soon as I put my arms over my head a few times the rolled up into straps again.... This wasn't too big of a deal, but still a bit disappointing. I would definitely recommend this for a contemporary or ballet piece!!
Will the fabric of this dress accept fabric dye? i am trying to find a basic white dress that I can

Contents for this product is 92% Polyester 8% Spandex/Trim 100% Nylon and can be difficult to dye, there are dyes specifically for these types of fabric.. research before you dye - DDS Customer Service (01/03/2013)
Short answer: I doubt it. Because the skirt is a nylon blend, if it does take dye, it will probably be a different color than the bodice fabric. Although airbrushing would probably look great on it! - Icedancr (02/02/2016)
