With more and more girls buying over the internet, I get to see first- hand how these gowns are constructed.
In most cases, I can spot a knock-off instantly!
The fabric feels and looks cheep, the beads are often glued on and not sewn.
Most of the dresses don’t have boning in the seams or horse hair in the hems.
Most of the time, the lining is not attached at the bottom of the skirt, exposing all the stitching underneath.
I also have to replace the zippers a lot.
I strongly recommend that you “do not buy directly from China”!
