Sarah persuaded me to get this dress. Not that it took much persuasion! It looked so pretty on her that as soon as I saw it hit the sale in December, I snapped it up. If you're tempted to do the same, bear in mind her wise words: size down. At least two sizes. Unless you're a fan of smocky frocks. (I'm not).
I'm normally a size 14 and this one is a size 10 and it's still loose. I could probably have got away with a size 8 (Ha! That'd be the only time I'd ever have one of those in my wardrobe!) but I initially bought this to wear on Christmas Day and given the amount of roast potatoes and stuffing ducks I managed to shovel into my face, the extra stretch was needed! It pleases me greatly to be wearing a size 10, even if it isn't a real size 10.
It has a touch of the Magic Eye picture about it. People seem to like it on first glance, then five minutes later they'll have a closer look and go "is that stained glass windows on your dress?". And I say "yes, yes it is," and skip off happily.
