We have it. LOVE it! It is quite delicate like the doll dress. The satin top seems to lose threads easily, don't brush your dd's hair while she wears the dress! It fits tts, IMO, my dd is 8 and wearing the 8.
The Silver Belle dress arrived yesterday for my DD. She LOVED the dress. The only problem is that it's very long on her. She said that she "will grow into it" and doesn't want to return it. I understand this dress is supposed to be calf length. It literally hits her ankles. The top fits fine, it's just the length. I'm hoping she'll grow a little before Christmas. I could order the dress in a size 8 and see how that one fits or just suck it up and keep the one that I have and not worry about it. It looks like a ball gown on her and she's not bothered by the length.
ETA - I ordered a size 10 in the dress. She's a size 8 but sometimes wears a size 10 depending.

It ran true to size and very long for us. I would rebuy the size 8. That is size we have. I'm so glad I didn't size up. I made that mistake with the Chrissa dress and sized up per the reviews and by the time we got it in the mail the size 8 was long gone. I had to resell because the sleeves we way too long and overall too big. My dd is almost 8 1/2 and she has room to grow in the size 8. Hold onto your 10 and rebuy the 8 and just ship back whatever one doesn't work.
