Color is also important and highly dependent on the season. For example, pastels are not the best color choice for an event in the middle of winter. Share your thoughts with other customers.

I believe satin is used for the basic dress which is then overlain with lace. The satin has a high luster and is matched well with the decorative lace overlay. In our order we received 5 different colors--Red, Pink, Yellow, Blue and White with pink and red rosebuds embroidered into the lace overlay. However please read on! Why did I not give 5 stars for such lovely dresses? None of the seams were "finished"--that means the raw fabric in the seam allowance ravels.
Satin fabric ravels A LOT so not only will you have a bunch of tiny filament like threads coming off all the time but eventually the seams will come apart. For me, the above problems were reasonably easily solved. I ran over all the seams with my serger to finish them and keep them from raveling and turned up a very narrow hem at the bottom to encase the raw edge and re-stitched them. If you are buying these dresses mostly for displaying the Barbie rather than playing with it, they are beautiful.
If you want the dresses to be able to be taken on and off repeatedly, you need to fix them or plan on throwing them away without too much use that is if they fit in the first place. You might be able to keep the seams from raveling with a product like "Fray Check" but it is important to only apply it to the seam allowance as it will make a big "wet" looking spot on satin fabric If you sew, or know someone who will do it for you, these are great dresses.
If not, these dresses might be a big disappointment. I was blown away by the quality. The pictures had me hopeful, but wow! Each dress was individually packaged in a plastic bag and came packaged together and bundled with a few other orders.
As soon as I opened the first one my daughter squealed and ran to grab her Barbies. She wanted me to dress each one and then surprise her with each dress. Her eyes were bright with excitement.
I was just as excited. One light pink strapless dress with a white tulle overlay with white and light pink applique. One red strapless dress with red tulle overlay and gold applique. One royal blue strapless dress with white lace overlay and One White dress with sewn material in a pattern on white tulle with sequins overlay.
My daughter was SO happy with the quality, the look, the feel, and the fit of the dresses. I loved the details. They are very girly, very blingy dresses. TONS of material in the skirts! The "apron" like overlays drap over the full front skirt and it sort of drapes backward to the back. The white dress was especially full skirted and the stiff under skirt helped it stand out. It's truly a wedding dress! We were so inspired by this dress that we found some old dress up clothes that didn't fit, a princess costume.
I use a seam ripper to get the white tulle petticoat off the under skirt then used it and ribbon off the front of the dress to make a veil, and then a flower décor off the dress to make a bouquet. It was perfect, and my daughter had the perfect colorful brides maid dresses right along with it. I will absolutely be ordering more of these dresses!! These dresses are just gorgeous, but none of them fit.
See the pics I posted. Very disappointed because other wise they are so pretty. They will also probably fall apart after a few uses as the threads are loose and all over the place. So I opted for these.
Even after reading the reviews, I ordered these. Designer dresses were typically part of a designer's collection, having it altered for the wearer.
Designers need to know where the dress will be worn to avoid two people from matching. In modern times, designers must understand that their pieces of work will be criticized and also praised as a result of the internet and paparazzi.

Traditionally the debutantes will wear all white, but with varying styles of dress. For most of the 19th century, a headdress with veiling was a popular style as well as a full train attached at the waist and in later years it would attach to the shoulders. The traditional ideals of the debutante ball vary based on location in the USA.
The debutantes in New Orleans could be seen wearing jeweled crowns and dresses with Medici collars with elongated trains. Texas has variations within its various regions.
In Laredo, middle class debutantes wear beaded suede garments. In San Antonio, the dresses are of elaborate colors and covered in beads of different designs. The beads add extensive weight having some dresses weigh in at about 75 lbs. Their gowns are often very brightly colored and resemble traditional ball gowns with very full ruffled or ruched skirts.
Every first lady is represented in the collection although they are not all inaugural dresses. Taft started this tradition when she donated her dress that she wore during President Taft's inauguration. Typically the dresses were added to the collection after the first lady had left office but in the publics uproar to see Mamie Eisenhower's inaugural dress was so strong that the Smithsonian changed their policy and added her dress immediately, not waiting until she left office.
