I love this dress, I really do, BUT it, and all the dresses like it (I have at least 7!) have one huge flaw - they are not well made! I bought a bunch of the dresses in this collection at various points, over the span of under a year and they are all in various states of falling apart. I hand wash and hang dry as the instructions say, but they are either coming apart, very literally, at the seams, or they develop random holes in odd places. For nearly 40$, I expected at least a few years of wear. I have cotton dresses, shirts, tank tops, that I've had for over a decade and they don't look like this. It's very disappointing. Fortunately, I know how to sew a little, so I'll do my best to sew them up and keep wearing them, because as I said - I really do love these dresses.I just wish they were made better.
