This is a popular cut from Lindy Bop. The bust area is ruched and has a cowl effect part that hangs down. The problem with this is that if it doesn't fit you PERFECTLY it ends up cutting you at the wrong point of your bust and looks plain odd. The ruching part is supposed to encase your bust and the cowl part is supposed to lie underneath your bust, but on many many pictures of these style of dresses I have seen on both this website and on Lindy Bops Facebook page, many people cannot pull off this design and it ends up looking badly fitted. The good points about this dress are it is made from a nice quality material. I am a size10-12 and got the size 10, it fits quite well (again, needs pulled into the correct position at the bust) but it is VERY wide fitting at the shoulders and I really needed a strapless bra to wear with it as the bra straps showed at the front. The waist line is also a tad high, it would have been more flattering if it was an inch or two lower. The teal colour is very lovely though. I purchased a black petticoat to wear underneath so I have still to try it out with that. I would have liked it to be a couple on inches longer also so that when worn with a petticoat it would still be below the knee. So in summary a very nice dress, but do be careful about the ruched bust area as it does not fit well on lots of people, judge from the reviews, a lot of people comment on the odd cut of this style (it appears in a lot of Lindy Bop dresses!) so it can't be just me. Luckily it does fit okay on my bust with a bit of strategic pulling!
lovely dress fits similar to Ophelia although it has a much wider neckline which gives it a glamorous look. I needed to put a few stitches in place as the border around the bust didn't lay very neatly when wearing the dress..
