Trumpet/Mermaid Off-the-Shoulder Floor-Length Taffeta Holiday Dress With Ruffle #25961
I ordered this dress for a law firm Christmas party. The dress arrived in less time than expected and was lovely. The dark green taffeta is a vibrant emerald that was perfect for the party and my Irish complexion. The tailoring was lovely and with the custom measurements the dress fit like a glove. Thank you for creating such a lovely gown for me.
The only two things I would offer as advice for future purchasers are this -
1. It is hard to tell in the photos, but there is not a modesty panel under the laces. Which means even with the dress perfectly laced, there is still a chance for skin to show thru. As I wanted the dress to be more on the conservative side, I ordered an additional piece of fabric and had my tailor make me amodesty panel for the gown.
2. With the custom measurements they add on two inches in length to accommodate heels. Only problem was that my heels start at 3 inches, so I felt I would have liked the dress to be one inch longer. Just something to note and something I will keep in mind for my future purchases.
Addition to my previous review.
Dear JJhouse. Please place the information for customers to check import duty taxes for their countries. The information have to be on every page with the dress. Now it is only among FAQs which is obviously and unfortunately not enough.
First of all, thank you very much for a great dress and extremely fast delivery service. The quality of the tailoring for the dress is just fine. I was amazed. People, who reads the feedbacks, can be sure that they will have a high quality product. I was happy with the dresses.
The only thing that was extremely unplesant is the customs import duty tax. I will join to the people asking to put it in big letters so your customers keep it in mind and carefully check. The dresses are perfect, people will buy even with high taxes. Just it is always better to be ready. When I got the bill for two dresses for taxes over 110 euro I was shocked. I know it is my fault and I had to check it before purchasing, but the lack of the experience (it was my first purchase) and I am in s uch an unpleasant trouble. Now I have a pellet that I can not even see these dresses and they are not bringing me a joy at all.
I would deeply ask you to lead peole like me and prevent them from misunderstanding for the price. Please, place this information on the FAQs and reads "Note #3" there.
First, the dress fit perfectly! It was exactly what I wanted for my formal sit-down dinner for 70 in my home to kick off the holidays.
Room for improvement - It never states on the website that they are actually shipping from outside the country and you will get a bill (nominal) separately for customs fees!
The description of this actual dress isn't clear on the fact that from the waist up, the back is actually a lace up. It's OK, but it was a surprise - I had to get help to dress!
The lining of the dress was not the correct color. (bright red lining for a burgundy dress). This sounds small, but when any part of it showed across the neckline there was an annoying contrast.
But even with all this, I have already recommended the site to my friends and I will buy again!
I have to say, this was my first ever purchase. Of course I had my doughts. I am so amazed the service I got to begin with with my questions and my directions. When I received my dress, it was just PERFECT..... I look a million dollars.
I really recommend JJ's house to others......
Very Sincerely thank you. I will be buying all my gowns from here....
Ordered this dress for my daughter with custom measurements. Arrived ahead of schedule, neatly packaged. The dress is beautifully sewn with incredibly quality fabric and fits perfectly. Sending in custom measurements saved us a small fortune on have alterations done. I'll absolutely be returning here for future dresses and will tell all my friends!
