This dress is lovely, and you can definitely size down. The fabric feels really nice and cool for the summer. I love how voluminous the skirt is. This dress would be great for someone with a larger bust.
There are just two things that are a bit off about it: the length, and the pockets. It's about an inch or two too short to be a maxi dress, and an inch or two too long to be a midi dress. And the lace at the bottom prevents it from being hemmed. Maybe it would be better if I wore heels, or sized down.
I am pretty disappointed in the pockets too. I was so excited about them, but they're too shallow to securely hold anything more than a tissue. My phone falls out of them immediately, I don't trust them enough to carry my wallet. It's almost worse than having no pockets at all. Please make deeper pockets!!
