A-Line/Princess Off-the-Shoulder Floor-Length Charmeuse Holiday Dress With Ruffle Beading #25938
Needed some alterations in the shoulders (too long). Fabric Color a wonderful clean true silver. Fabric was nice weight, lovely shine in the charmeuse. Construction was excellent. Pockets would have been a bonus. Higher neckline cut at the bust line than expected but worked ok with almost bare shoulder. I got many many compliments. Was very happy to wear it. Wish I was wearing it again soon!
I am a bridal stylist at a bridal salon that sells not only bridal gowns, but also bridesmaid and special occasion dresses. Everything is special order taking from 12 to 18 weeks to deliver. I had to attend a black tie, formal event in less than 6 weeks. I shopped locally and found a couple of acceptable, but rather expensive ($600.00+) dress options. I discovered JJ's House while looking for jewelry to go with one of those expensive dresses. I spent hours looking at all the dresses and reading all the great reviews. I have personally seen a few hot mess, horrible, awful dresses ordered online, so I was highly skeptical. However, the pictures posted by JJ's happy clients persuaded me to order.
Wow! I am beyond impressed. I ordered on the afternoon of May 10, 2015 and the dress was delivered on the morning of May 22. Amazing. I chose the custom measurement and expedited shipping. The dress exceeds all my expectations. The charmuse fabric is high quality and the jade color is rich. The construction of the dress is impressive with true finished French seams and double layer lining. The hand beading is perfectly done and the hidden zipper was put in expertly. There is not a stray thread anywhere. And it fits like a glove; no alterations needed, not even a hem! The dress does need to be steamed/pressed. If you are not familiar with steaming and pressing formal wear fabrics, you may want to have it professionally done. Also, I know how to measure. Ladies, please follow the excellent instructions and measure carefully. If your measurements do not correspond exactly to those listed on the size chart, go for the custom option; it is more than worth the extra $20.
Thank you JJ's for the gorgeous dress, the informative and easy to use website, and the seemingly impossibly short production and delivery time. I will post pictures next month when I get to wear my beautiful dress!
