Soulmates Three Piece Crochet Silk Skirt Set
Mother of the bride
Bought the champagne 3 piece...beautiful! A little to close to the ivory color of my daughters wedding dress. Exchanged for 2 piece soulmate in espresso...absolutely love it!! Comfortable, flattering, fun, and just enough sparkle to feel special!! Tried it on for co-workers at school...everyone loved it. These are great mother of the bride or groom dresses! Nordstrom is so great to work with...I bought 8 dresses...returned all but the one!
My daughter is getting married in September. It is an afternoon affair in an old club next to the water on the north shore of Long Island with the wedding and reception at the same place. When I started looking for dresses, I was appalled at what was out there, even in the nicer shops. When I tried to find a nice suit to fit the occassion, they either looked chintzy or were being advertised in London. I went to a nice designer dress store to see if I would have more luck and they kept bringing out things that looked good on a hanger, but not on me. Moreover, they were trying to put a ten pound sausage in a five pound casing proclaiming all the while they can alter it just for little ol' me and I am thinking to myself I looked like a Barbie doll getting dressed up for the prom, no matter what miracles they claimed to do.
The ensemble arrived today. It's beautiful. Just a tad bit of glitter. Since I am the mother-of-bride, I don't think it will too much and will look stylishly classy for this afternoon affair. It is very comfortable too and has a well made feel to it. I ordered it in champagne.
As others have mentioned, this runs big, so I ordered a medium and a large. The medium arrived today and it fit nicely. The large hasn't arrived yet, even though I ordered it later the same day, but I will probably keep the medium, as it fits quite nicely. Often times to accomodate my thicker middle, I need to wear a large, but then the shoulders tend to be big. The medium in this fits nicely in the shoulders and the pullup design of the skirt accomodates the waist . Also, if I loose more weight around the middle, like I have been, I think it will still fit nicely. The flair at the bottom of the skirt also makes your waist look smaller. The crochet is high quality. It came folded nicely in a shirt like box and there wasn't a wrinkle in it.
It fits the bill
buy smaller than you wear
This dress is so gorgeous, I love the color. I bought it for my daughters wedding in Sept. I have another soul mate dress ordered also that is on back order. I bought a large, I am a size 12 on the bottem but bust is 38-40 , the skirt is huge and the top and jacket still a little big. If the other one that is on back order does not fit either I will probably pay for alterations if possible as I can not find anything else that compares to these soul mate dresses. I so wish that medium was avail but right now it is not.. I will keep watching to see if I can order a medium in this dress.
This three piece dress is very pretty and feels wonderful, however I ordered a size small and it is cut very boxy and looks huge on me. It would fit a person with a bigger chest I think. Had to return it.
