I was displeased when it would not zip, but knew I had a year, so ....... 6 months later the damn thing still wouldn't zip. Two weeks ago it appeared that it would zip if I didn't need a third arm to do it behind my back while stabilizing the chiffon out of the zipper teeth's grasp. And my fingers don't reach a certain point in my back - it is the spot I am convinced must be really dry because lotion has never touched it. ;-)
Today my mate is off of work and I sought his assistance and it zipped!! And I can sit, breathe, eat and dance in it which has been my criteria for outfits since the first child was born and I decided pain for fashion was a dumb idea that I should have ditched long before. So ~~yay~~
The dress also has a wee bolero jacket with a slight ruffled edge (not pictured):
