I already had the stripped dress but I bought this one because of different material. I prefer cotton dress to the original pure polyester one, it's more comfortable, especially for summer when you wear it not only to look pretty, but also to not get cooked alive. :) The colour fits the dress perfectly. I got S and with height of 168 cm, it reaches my knees. What I love about the gothabilly dresses is the wide skirt that can hide anything. My thunder tights appreciate this!
