I bought this dress for my little one to wear to a wedding. She loved the dress and as she said felt like a princess. The bottom is full. The top is an open back which didnt work well for us. It kept sliding off her shoulders. We had to add a button mid way down the back to keep it up better. She has also worn it in the winter with a thin long sleeve shirt under it since the sleeves are lace. Could be used for lots of occasions.
