I purchased the item based on photos given, unfortunately, they weren't descriptive enough for me. When I got the dress, I realized I'd mistaken the front of the dress as part of the backing in the photo and that the back was more cut out than I'd anticipated. The sleeves were a very think tank style and the dress is nowhere near flattering. The back has these strings that are all knotted together with single pieces of thread, I'm afraid I'll tear it by wearing it. When you get the item, it shows the authenticity of a hand dyed product. It looks like they barely cared to make this at all. The cloth felt nice and the coloring was nice, but the design and the actual make are very off-putting.
