I ordered these dresses for our end of year concert and they arrived in a week (to Australia)! I was very impressed. The gold lace is quite pale, rather than a warm, yellowy gold, but the leotard underneath is a warmer gold. They run a bit small in the length of the body (I ordered the size up for any girls 'on the fence' with their measurements, so it was fine). My biggest issue is that the arm holes are TINY! They were cutting into the girl's arms (around the shoulders) and left big marks on their skin. On most of the girls, the actual leotards fitted perfectly, and when I tried the next size up the dresses looked too big (and the girls still said it cut into their arms, just not quite as much). So it's obviously just the cut of the arms and the elastic being too tight! We had to take them to a dressmaker and have the holes cut larger and a looser elastic put in. Luckily this was an easy fix and very inexpensive, and the dresses themselves were very inexpensive so overall I am still very happy with this product. They look beautiful and are extremely flattering on all the girls. They will look lovely on stage for our 'Fields of Gold' lyrical routine!
