Possibly the best casual dress I ever bought...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sakkas Stonewashed Rayon Embroidered Adjustable Spaghetti Straps Long Dress (Apparel)
I ordered this dress in the navy blue color, and I cannot describe how happy I am with this purchase! I'll preface my review by stating that my body type is large hips, with a small chest in comparison. The dress falls beautifully from the bust area (therefore minimizing my big hips), and although my stomach is not big, it has a minimizing effect on it anyway, giving me an understated hourglass figure. The embroidery and color are very fetching. I'm just over 5'7" and the skirt comes to about mid-calf. One of my favorite things about this dress is how it fits my bust; there is a drawstring over the cleavage so that when I pull and tie it together, it makes the dress fit to tailored perfection. It even adds some lift, so no bra is needed. The rayon material is cool in the sweltering, humid southeastern summer climate weather that I live in. The dress is so pretty and flattering that my hubby has requested that I order this same dress in a different color. I ordered this dress along with two other dresses from amazon and some other miscellaneous products, and although I received it in a timely manner, it was the last shipment to arrive. I will definitely be ordering from this seller again, probably getting the green color of this dress. I highly recommend it!

Would you say that it is dressy enough for an outdoor July wedding, mother of the groom?

I would say it depends on how formal it will be. My own wedding was an outdoor garden one, but it was really formal and the dress would've been out of place as most of the ladies were dressed semi-formal; my mother was in satin. However, for a less formal event, or especially for a beach wedding it would be perfect. You could also always dress it up with a shoulder cover up or shawl. For most outdoor (or indoor too actually) this would be appropriate, and will definitely be more comfortable than most dresses.

Hello, although this dress is really pretty, I think it will be too casual for a wedding. It is a perfect spring/summer dress for attending a barbecue or dinner at a friend's place
