Costume Doesn't Quite Match Photo
Date: July 6, 2017
Sizing was pretty accurate, although the sewn on apron doesn't quite line up with the waist on the dress to evenly match where you would tie back the apron. The lace trim around the neck and sleeves is nowhere near as wide, full or attractive as depicted in the photo. At most it's barely a half inch wide if that, and pretty lame compared to the photo - very disappointing. The over-sized poinsettia decorations for the hat and apron pocket are too large, too heavy for the apron pocket which keeps flopping over, and pretty nasty looking. They are glued on, and I'm hoping to be able to removed them and replace with nicer looking decorative accents to save this costume. If I were a seamstress I would definitely replace the lace, but I'm not... oh well! I would only recommend this outfit if you're willing to put in some extra time and effort to upgrade the look from cheesy to acceptable if you want something to look as nice as the photo. The red dress was great for length and fit.
