This dress was purchased in the color "regency" size 8. It was beautiful. But, the chiffon layer covering the satin is not regency. It was more of a grape color. Then the satin was regency. So The color was a little off. But we weren't using it for a wedding, so we made it work. The biggest problem was, it was a size to small. I ordered a 8 and it was made at a 6. I used the websites measuring guide to ensure the right size, and actually should have had an half inch extra room. The dress, from bust to hem, had to be ripped open, going through multiple layers of fabric, to make a nightmare of an adjustment. Fortunately, my mother has sewn and made dressed for years, so she was able to alter it. Overall ,dress was beautiful and aside from the measurment problem, it is VERY well made. Nothing cheap about it.
