    I am very pleased with this dress.

    I am short waisted, and the waistline is 3" above my natural waist, but once I adjust the waist size it probably won't matter because the line seems fine.

    This is a beautiful garment that can be worn as a dress or jacket.

    Immediately one of the buttons fell off of it. But it was comfortable, beautiful, and well made. I got several compliments and how beautiful it is. I am very pleased with this dress.

    The fabric is not real velvet or even velour, but a synthetic with a shallow pile. It still looks good though, and has a bit of shimmer due to the synthetic polymers (maybe polyester?). The jacket and collar are fully lined and the peplums are not. You can't tell from the picture, but the upper peplum has pockets, which is nice. The buttons are ordinary (semi round wine plastic, bit opalescent), and I will probably upgrade. There is also a short belt band in the back of the jacket, held with two buttons that match the front. The seams seem sturdy and the edges are serged.

    The fit was about as expected--I have to buy large to accommodate my bust, then the waist is 2-3" too big. The waist line is quite high--almost empire. I am short waisted, and the waistline is 3" above my natural waist, but once I adjust the waist size it probably won't matter because the line seems fine. I plan to take the belt off, gather the fabric behind it and reattach it (maybe a bit lower) with new buttons to match the front. If this doesn't work, I will take it to a seamstress, but I expect that it will because I don't mind a little gathering in the back where I can't see it.

    Overall, not bad, but would be much improved with a better velvet. I love the styling however, and I can turn it into a great costume piece for Dickens on the Strand, Steampunk, and maybe renaissance too.
