twobirds Convertible Jersey Gown
BUY THIS DRESS!
I love the versatility of this dress and wear it multiple times.
I know this dress is advertised for a bridesmaid, but it makes a beautiful evening gown for any occasion. I recently wore this dress to a wedding and I received lots of compliments. The only thing I did not like about the dress was that the tag kept sticking out because the fabric in the back was too heavy and weighed the dress down.
I'm normally a size 2 but this dress serves a wide range, so it fit me very well and will continue to fit me if I gain 80 more pounds. The dress is very very long, but it is easy to alter. I didn't have much time before the wedding I was wearing it to, so I cut it myself. After I measured how many inches I needed to take off, I laid the dress on the floor against the seams, and slowly cut off the excess fabric. It was very easy and unnoticeable, but I wouldn't recommend this if you have time to get it altered.
Cleaning: This dress notes that it should be dry cleaned only, and as a bad habit I usually do not listen. I threw it in the washer by itself in the most delicate setting possible and then into the dryer by itself, and it came out perfect.
i would strongly suggest that written and diagramed instructions be included with this dress. I am pretty creative but this was a major challange for me.
Although this dress is made of a wonderful fabric, once you positioned it the way you wanted it, you couldn't even raise your arms without it shifting and sliding.
It would be much better if they just made the dress into a dress like in the picture...
I purchased this dress to wear as a bridesmaid in a wedding and will definitely wear this dress again and again, as it's so versatile. I'll be six months pregnant at the wedding and it's going to be a great dress for the bump. But once the bump is gone, it will still be a beautiful dress to wear. One thing though, I'm 5'2" and it's way too long, so I'll have to cut it, which is fine. I wanted to order the short version, but they didn't have the smaller size. All in all, a beautiful dress that I'll wear many times.
