Fabric

94% viscose, 6% elastane

Did you know?

Jersey: is a knitted fabric that most often has an extremely fine surface which is distinguished by its high degree of elasticity. The resulting comfort is what makes jersey so popular.

Elastane: a synthetic, elastane is added in small quantities to fabrics to provide stretch and shape retention. It allows freedom of movement and delivers long lasting fit. Lycra is a premium branded version of elastane.

Viscose: used to be known as 'artificial silk' because like silk it has superb drape, is soft to the skin and can be dyed in rich colours. A man-made fabric, it's made from wood pulp and blends easily. You will often find it blended with other fabrics to add softness, lustre or absorbency (it's highly absorbent and so cool to wear in the summer).

Ok 2.0

The cut is unfortunately "baggy", the figure disappears among them completely, in spite of the beautiful V-neck. The side pockets are exactly at waist height and stick out, the dress is so exactly where wider than it is. I ordered the dress in 2 sizes, minus points apply to both sizes. Too bad, because the pattern is very beautiful, also fabric and workmanship are ok.

Original customer review

Der Schnitt ist leider "sackartig", die Figur verschwindet darunter komplett, trotz des schönen V-Ausschnitts. Die Eingriffstaschen sind genau auf Hüfthöhe und stehen ab, das Kleid macht also genau dort breiter, als man ist. Ich habe das Kleid in 2 Größen bestellt, Minuspunkte treffen auf beide Größen zu. Schade, denn das Muster ist sehr schön, auch Stoff und Verarbeitung sind ok.

The quality... is high The product runs… true to size

The fabric is very thin and not dyed. Rather narrow sleeves. Below, it has a rib which is set partly in wrinkles...

Original customer review

Der Stoff ist sehr dünn und nicht durchgefärbt. Eher enge Ärmel. Unten hat es ein Bündchen das zum Teil in Falten gelegt ist...

The dress has the right size, everything is o. k. as advertised, but you could leave out the bags. I let me cut it by a seamstress and sew.

Original customer review

Das Kleid hat die passende Größe, alles ist o. k. wie angepriesen, jedoch könnte man die Taschen weglassen. Ich habe sie mir von einer Schneiderin abschneiden und vernähen lassen.

Very good 3.0

The dress is very high quality, the colors radiate and the cut is great, too. I wanted to keep that dress, wore and then the pockets at the sides came out again and again and stübten up to. So I sent it back now.

Original customer review

Das Kleid ist sehr hochwertig, die Farben strahlen und der Schnitt ist auch toll. Ich wollte da Kleid behalten, habe getragen und dann kamen immer wieder die Taschen an den Seiten raus und stübten sich um. Daher hab ich es jetzt zurück geschickt.

Very disappointing! Even 2 once ordered this dress, because I was holding the patterns on the lower federal first for an error. At this price, I expect that the black set stripes at the hem, is exactly as pictured, just black! Everything else is a no go ...sehr annoying!

Original customer review

Sehr enttäuschend! Habe dieses Kleid sogar 2 mal bestellt, weil ich das Muster auf dem unteren Bund zunächst für einen Fehler hielt. Bei diesem Preis erwarte ich, dass der schwarze angesetzte Streifen am Saum, genau wie abgebildet, einfach schwarz ist! Alles andere ist ein no go ...sehr ärgerlich!

Visually on the photo a really nice dress, but it hangs like a bag and pockets are unattractive off. But the smell of the material was at its worst. A pity...

Original customer review

Optisch auf dem Foto ein wirklich schönes Kleid, aber es hängt wie ein Sack und die Taschen stehen unschön ab. Aber am schlimmsten war der Geruch des Materials. Sehr schade...

How do you make not black, but also figured the lower end at the Federal (other than on the pictures at navabi) for a dress that lives by the expressive print? This is not and certainly not at this price!

Original customer review

Wie kann man bei einem Kleid, das von dem ausdrucksstarken Print lebt, den unteren Abschluss am Bund ( anders als auf den Bildern bei navabi) nicht schwarz, sondern ebenfalls gemustert machen? Das geht gar nicht und schon gar nicht bei diesem Preis!
