I purchased this gown for my Granddaughter for her First Communion in April. I was hesitant to order without first seeing, touching and feeling. The dress arrived quickly. The shipping packaging was just a thin plastic bag and the dress was folded up very small. But once the dress was put on a hanger all wrinkles worked out. The dress was beautiful and my Granddaughter was thrilled. The cap sleeves were adorable and the embellishment around the waist gave the dress just the right amount of sparkle for a Communion. She looked like an Angel! The dress sizes seem to run a little big. Although I ordered my Granddaughters correct size, it was wide across the bodice and needed alterations. I would have given the dress 5 stars if it weren't for the alterations. We had a wonderful memorable day!
