Dress is beautiful from afar. I love the colors. It is a bit tight on the hips- not sure if that was the fashion back then. But there's no way it would fit over a slip. Side tie confused me. Head ribbon has a gorgeous pattern and is just the right length. Shoes are very cute and work well with the dress, though I wish they had snaps rather than being slip-on. Outfit should have come with stockings rather than tights.
