Rated 1 out of 5 by Kelly MAJOR Disappointment
I saw photos of this dress both on the J.Crew website and on Pinterest. On both sites, the dress looked so sweet and beautiful, and I thought that it would be perfect for my small wedding. The large polka dots—described as 'hand-applied fluttery circle appliqués'—appeared to be made of organza or chiffon in the pictures. Oh my goodness, how appearances can be deceiving! When I took the dress out of the box, I was HORRIFIED! No exaggeration. The large polka dots are made of a thick cotton-poly blend (almost like a very structured sweatshirt material). When you look at the dress as a whole, while the 'bones' and structure of the dress are good, it's a such a jarring mismatch of poor-quality materials. The 'fluttery circle appliqués' just droop there, barely attached. I talked to my mother on the phone and said that I have yet to be this disappointed in 20 years of shopping at J.Crew. I texted her a picture, and her only response was 'Ewww. It IS awful.' A major disappointment indeed.
