I am very happy with the speed at which the dress was made up and delivered to me. I couldn't believe though that the two sleeves didn't match. In the picture you cannot see clearly that one sleeve is totally different to the other. At first i thought it was a bad mistake in manufacture. Then i realised it was probably meant to look like that- assymetrical. Anyway it looks totally ridiculous and it should have been shown very clearly in the photo so you can see what your'e getting. Anyhow, problem solved now as I decided to chop both of the sleeves off and and have it strapless which looks quite nice.
It is a lace-up back and even though i gave my bust measurement as one inch less that i am (because i would lose weight before my wedding), i have to have the lacing fully tightened until it bunches up and even then it's only just tight enough. What i've decided to do is take the lace out and put in a zipper then I'll attach some pearls where the loops are.
The workmanship is quite good and for the price you can't complain about the finish.
