{Giveaway + Review} Shabby Apple Dress!

 Today is an exciting day! Shabby Apple, an online boutique for women's dresses, sent me a gorgeous dress to review, plus one of you has a chance to win this same dress! It is the "Dressage" dress, originally valued at $86.00.
 Let me start by saying how much I love this dress. It is so pretty and elegant. I just love the pleats in the front. Being a seamstress, I appreciate well made clothing. And in my opinion, this dress is very well made. It is fully lined with a pretty satin, and has an invisible zipper on the side.
 I ordered an X-Small. It is important to read the sizing chart and reviews when ordering dresses online. I did my best to choose the right fit for my body. As you can see, it is slightly large in the shoulder/bust area, so I may have to work a little magic and take in the seams a little bit. I wore an undershirt for these pictures, and I don't mind the look at all. In fact, I might wear it to church like this tomorrow!
 I'm excited that one of you gets to win this dress too!
I've been so impressed with Shabby Apple's customer service. The dress was on my doorstep just 3 days after working out the details with them.
Thank you so much Shabby Apple for letting me review this beautiful dress!
It is so comfortable and pretty, and I love it!
P.S. If you like my hair accessory, the tutorial for it is here.
