It's lovely, but I do think you would have to be pretty thin to wear it.

oh yes can just see self in it.Podgy floral garden effect plus plastic birds to go with birds nest hair.

Tres chic.[HMM]

That dress is SO much like something hanging in spare room wardrobe at my mom and dads. Used to be worn on its own for a night at the ritzy.. then indied out with a floppy velvet hat and worn with leggings and DMs/combat boots. Ahhhhhh. Coming over all nostalgic!
