Please keep in mind – this dress is a Euro 44 – US 14 and my mannequin is a Small so the dress is several sizes too large for my mannequin. I have not pinned the dress to fit her. The dress is marked a Euro size 44 and in referencing several size conversion charts – it is either a size 12 or 14.**** Please use the measurements provided and not just the size. Thank you*****.
Should look better belted. I did not have a suitable belt to use.
