I agree with the other reviewer. This is an extremely high quality dress. We purchased it for our 11 year old daughter in 2011 as she wanted to be a Renaissance Lady for Halloween. The dress was so high-quality, and she loved it so much, that she wore it on Thanksgiving and Christmas as well. Now it is three years later and she needs a fancy dress for another occasion, and this (in an adult size) is the one she wants. She never forgot it. So we are here again, buying another one.
