Item shipped on time and fit the dress perfectly. Be careful to read the description before purchasing as there are two styles to choose from depending on the dress you purchase and it's easy to mix them up :)

I ordered this dress for one of my bridesmaids for a March wedding with rush shipping. The dress arrived within the time described in the color/fabric that I requested and overall it fit my bridesmaid relatively well. However, I am deducting stars because my other two bridesmaids ordered dresses from here without rush shipping and the quality was wildly inconsistent - one had a botched sleeve style that did not fit the bridesmaid, both had stitching problems and there was a clear lack of communication from the seller when messages were sent (e.g. message was sent, after 10 days there was still no follow-up by seller). If you plan to buy from Moonboot I recommend you purchase well in advance (8+ weeks) and plan to take your dress in for alterations/repairs afterwards.

Beautiful dress, I love the thicker fabric and am glad of how dark it actually is. The only problem is the top part is way too big and the capped sleeves keep falling off my shoulder but I think I messed up on my measurements. I have plenty of time to have it slightly altered and can't wait to wear it at my sisters wedding and for date nights.

Unfortunately, I had a few concerns with the petticoat I ordered: 1) It did not work with the dress that I ordered. Instead of enhancing the dress it actually cheapened it and made it look WAY too big in proportion to my body. 2) The petticoat that I ordered was drawstring at the waist which I found to be uncomfortable and already began to undo itself even after wearing it for only 20 minutes. Because I cannot return this item I will be using it for a Halloween costume.

Reasons I am unhappy with my purchase: 1) I ordered the dress on January 30th and did not receive it until March 16th, TWO days before my sister’s wedding. The shipping time said 4-6 weeks. Production time of my dress took exactly 6 weeks. It's ill-advised to write that an order may come in 4 weeks if you know that deadline will not be fulfilled, even if it is custom. 2) Because I received the dress so close to the deadline of the wedding I did not have time for alterations. I ordered style Q of the dress, but the sleeves fell off of my shoulders and did not match the other bridesmaid dresses. To pay such a high amount for a dress and not even have it fit properly or match with the rest of the bridal party is unacceptable to me. The dress is now sitting in the back of my closet and will be staying there useless to me.

I'm sorry you were unhappy with the dress, however our production times are included in every listing and we always recommend placing your dress order far enough in advance to allow for last minute alterations if needed. During the busy spring season at my studio all orders take their full production time.

About

Alternative Bridesmaid, Prom and Party Dresses for the Modern Pin Up!

Hi I'm Claire Marshall and I am the designer, owner and maker of all things HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. I founded my shop back in the year 2013 and have been personally making each and every dress you see here at MOONBOOT STUDIOS since that day! I make everything by hand, along with my 6 semi-industrial sewing machines in my Los Angeles area studio. It takes 3 sewing machines to produce 1 swing dress or pin up top from my studio and knitwear is my speciality.

What started out as a few tops, then dresses has turned into a vision of what my HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE is all about. In just a few short years and thousands of dresses later, I am living my dream and I truly love creating my dresses for you!

HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE is Rock n Roll knitwear for today's Pin Up! Proudly handmade in the USA!
