I took the plunge and ordered after just looking - and longing - for quite a while. I don’t normally spend this amount of money on a dress but I love it and feel wonderful wearing it! As an experienced sewer I appreciate how well this garment has been made. The fabric is excellent quality and print beautiful. I am only 5’ so sadly I will have to remove the bottom layer as I’ve worn it and it keeps tripping me up. A choice of lengths would be really appreciated for shorter people. I know you have shorter dresses than the one I chose but it had to be this particular dress! Arrived beautifully packaged (though it is an area you could perhaps cut costs on).
Okay, so. Gemma is a GODDESS who has made a dress that is utterly perfect. After having my daughter, I’ve felt so frumpy and like my body is absolutely foreign. Things fit but I just wear them and feel… eh. I’ve been following Mutha Hood for such a long time, and I was just sort of admiring from afar. Then I needed a nice dress to wear to a party, and I looked in my wardrobe and hated how I felt in everything. So I bought the Spring Meadow Maxi Dress, after asking Gemma what size she thought would be best because I just didn’t trust myself. It turns out her size guide is absolutely on point. I’m a 34E, usually a size 12, 5ft 6, and bought a medium under her advice and it is sheer perfection. It flatters my shape, doesn’t make my boobs look ridiculous, it’s floaty, it’s a gorgeous material, and is just absolutely wonderful. If you even slightly think you want this dress? But it. Buy it now.
This dress fits perfectly and is one of the most comfortable dresses I have bought, lots of people have commented on how nice it is.
