The seller (Pretty Kitty) contacted me in advance to let me know the satin ribbon tie was black not red, and was this OK? Which it was, and it's an optional tie you could easily swap yourself for any colour ribbon! The dress itself is a beautiful cut, there is a little stretch to the fabric as well so the bodice is a fantastic fit and doesn't gape at the back or sides like some halternecks can. Not only is it a good quality cotton feel fabric, the print is high quality and is retro but classy. The skirt is half lined so doesn't cling but isn't an overfull skirt so its flattering round the hips. I love it, and have been complimented on what a lovely dress it is!
