"Fabric beautiful -- front v-neck with thin shoelace-like cords disappointing and impractical"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was so disappointing. The fabric is beautiful and high quality. Unfortunately, though, the front has a very deep v-neck that is strung with a long round shoelace-like cord and it does not make for an attractive neckline, in my opinion. The cords in the the front needlessly complicate the dress and detract from the design of the fabric, not adds to it. If I could, I would alter the design by reversing the dress, making the back v neck the front, and cut off all the cord loops on the front and sew the existing front v together so it could be used for a simple V for the back, but thats too much trouble. I urge the designer to offer an option of a design with that uses a v neck like the the back V as BOTH the front and back. Id be first in line to buy it! But now, if one uses the front V-neck with the shoelace-like cord, any bra would be visible. The front V is simply not a design choice Im happy with and, in my opinion, its not worthy of this stunning fabric .

"Gorgeous Caftan"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful and original loose-fitting garment that wows whoever sees it. I wear it over jeans or leggings and the effect is stunning. I very much enjoy the compliments I am receiving, so would like to pass them on to the designer: thank you for creating such a comfortable and head-turning caftan! I am a fan!

"Chic!"

Will take this to Japan as a gift for a friend. Black and white striped with a gold accent for a dressy addition to a dress or blouse.

"Love! Great for both casual and cocktails"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Love this dress. Light and airy, but not a tent. I can see wearing it on errands, but also easily dressed up for cocktail. (Shoes and jewelry make all the difference!) Beautiful fabric. Finely crafted, quality manufacture. Id love to see more colors or patterns in the future.

"Beautiful dress!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Perfect for summer, this dress is light-weight and fun to wear. It has ribbon ties on the inside and a large button on the outside to keep the dress securely wrapped in place. The black belt is a nice feature.
