    I am currently waiting on my custom dress to be made!
    I have gone with the Hawaiian Heaven in this print:

    I am also getting a short sleeved bolero with collar - I am soooo excited, can't wait until it finally arrives!

    Do let us know what you decide to get! They are such gorgeous dresses aren't they.

    I have an extra strap and a matching reversible bolero along with it, the color being the green that is showing on the inside of the petal bust. :D

    I am hankering for a waterfall skirt, but have been so busy that I haven't gotten around to it yet.:(
    Well, some day.

    The only thing I don't like about it is the zipper--it's a bit too long and buckles at the waist [huh]

    I love that dress! That was actually one of the styles and fabrics i liked, as well as the peekaboo dress which is cute too!

    I forgot to mention that the fabric is not that bright in person. The blue is actually quite greenish, and the pink is a lot more subtle, too.

    Jitterbug, that looks darling! Do you have any pictures of yourself wearing it?

    I requested a price list (and an explaination of how the petal bust differed from the wing bust--anyone?)--what a great site! I've caught references to "Whirling Turban" dresses here on the site previously, but assumed it was a specific, popular style of dress I was unfamiliar with. I'm happy to stand corrected!

    I'd love to hear more reviews of the site (and see more pictures as well!).

    I have one too-- actually, I'll have to check, but it may be in the same print as JBD's! She does very nice work, but I do get some buckling at the waist as well.

    I think that Waterfall skirt is snazzy with the print. I love that burst of color down the side.

    I know I've showed this off on another thread,but I love it so much I can't help showing it again.

    It made me feel like a bombshell,but still elegant not overly sexy.Definitely a splurge,but worth every penny.
    Now,I want one of the petalbusts with a full skirt.

    I received my Whirling Turban Dress and not happy with how it looks on me :( Maybe I just lack the confidence to wear it as it is very revealing :eek: and I didn't realise just how much.

    I have posted it for sale on the Classified section (WT don't take returns) so if you fancy a bargain then get in touch.

    Are their dresses machine-washable? How are they washed?

    I don't think I'd try machine wash. I haven't worn mine enough to need cleaning, but think as it is rayon that I would dry clean it or maybe dryell to freshen up.

    Yes but you can have your dress in cotton...so if the cotton ones were washable, I'd go for that.

    I think I should just email them! :eusa_doh:

    Does anyone know how long it generally takes for them to respond to custom requests? I submitted my measurements and sizing info through their website on Friday, and I emailed them yesterday morning to confirm that they received my info, but I have not heard back yet.

    It takes them a few days to respond. When I sent in my order with my measurements, I think it was maybe a week to hear from them. If you don't hear anything by this coming friday, I'd email them again.

    They're a small company and sometimes they get backed up depending on what events are coming up. For instance there is a big rockabilly weekender coming up in October, and that is a giant market for them, so I bet they're clogged with gals ordering dresses for the event. (I ordered a dress from them 2 months before "Viva las Vegas", which is a big music weekender and she said that she gets SWAMPED a few months before it every year.)

    As for cleaning... Mine is cotton and I hand-wash it and it works out well. I'm hesitant to throw it in the washing machine.. I don't know why, I just am.
