This dress is so dreamy, the brocade it's beautiful, it fits perfectly and it's super stretchy without losing it's form. The fabric it's a really nice one and warm enough to those chilly days
The Dolores brocade dress in green has became my favorite winter dress. It is surprisingly stretchy and provides a great fit. The stretchiness also makes the dress comfortable to wear. It's also nice and warm – perfect for winter even in Finland. Half length sleeves are perfect for me because I'm always pushing longer sleeves up to my elbows anyways. The color of the dress is slightly more teal green than forest green, and I just adore brocade. This is one of those dresses you can dress up or down – in fact I want to wear it all the time!
I had one Dolores Doll dress before this, a basic black one, and I since the style fitted me so nicely, I've been dreaming of a long sleeved version with a nice print. And here it is, in brocade cloth on top of all. I love the print to the moon and back, but it's a shame it started to wear out after just a couple of weeks. One can see how the black decoration has faded under the sleeves already. Also there was a seam falling apart in armpit, which I noticed after first day using the dress, but fortunately sewing is not unfamiliar to me. All in all, a beautiful, comfy dress (the fabric is surprisingly stretchy, though it keeps its form well), and I wish it will serve me many years.
