Pretty dress - very glittery!! I am taking it to be altered before I wear it to the black tie event I am attending. I am 5ft6ins, but still need to get the hem lifted - even with high shoes it is on the floor. Will probably just lift the front so that the back area continues to trail. I will also have shoulder pads fitted as it keeps slipping down. I have bought a full length slip to wear under as the lining only goes as far as the knees and in light, I can see my legs through it. The quality of the sequins is ok, but not brilliant. From a distance they are fine. For the price it is acceptable, though of course it will cost me to have it altered I am between size 10/12. Went for a 12 - I think the 10 would have been too small.
