Perfect for my last minute needs!
Ordered a ready to ship dress with one weeks notice to support a last minute tea ceremony with my grandma as she was placed in hospice suddenly. Fit was good. I needed the XL size and on the Marilyn it did show a little much where the sheer panel is on the side at that size. Just wore black spanx underneath and it saved the day. Thanks EMD for supporting this last minute effort! Planning to buy another dress for tea ceremony with other family before the actual wedding next year!
Just purchased the Marilyn dress and I love it! Beautiful materials and details! The standard size guide was accurate and appropriate - I am approx. 5'6", 130 lbs, typically dress size 2-4, and the Small fits with just enough extra room to get it tailored. Vivian, Jenn, and Sole, you are wonderful artists and business owners, and I really appreciate your vision & process! ^_^
The material is good. The dress has a good weight and it’s comfortable. Excellent!
This was a wonderful dress shopping experience! The last time I bought a dress online it was not what I was expecting at all, but this dress is absolutely gorgeous and fulfills my expectations in every way. They were very thorough with measurements and made sure that everything was right. I love the material and the way it looks, especially the flowers. I am so excited to wear it for my wedding!
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
