It arrived with none of the stated measurements accurate, so it was too short to be dress. I didn't want to deal with sending it back, so I altered it. I knew I wouldn't be able to match the purple fabric perfectly, so I chose a lighter shade of purple to accent the embroidered yoke and skirt. Elastic in the back waistband gathers in the fabric and lets me still get it on by pulling it over my head. I added a sash because I really like sashes.
