I really like this designer's pieces, and they seem to be one of the few that offer plus sizes that do NOT assume if you wear over a size 12 you MUST have a 44DD bustline.

They areE expensive however; at least to me. Not horrible, but a lot to spend on items if I find that the quality/wearability is sub par.

I REALLY want this skirt: http://www.crimsonempress.com/temptress.htm

but $220 is a LOT of money for me to be thinking of investing in one item of clothing, especially if I am successful at loosing weight. I've emailed them ask about how easily the skirt might be altered if I do drop a few sizes over the next year.

Has anyone purchased from them or does anyone have any of thier designs? What are your impressions?

I do have one of her shirts and you are paying for a piece of quality work. I've been drooling over MANY of her designs for a while.

She's a real gem, so I'm sure that she will answer all of your questions to the best of her ability.

2 days with no response. That's annoying.

But then, I'm sort of anal about returning calls/emails I guess because of my job.

OH! C. wanted me to ask you if you get the pix he sent?

Ah! That's where those are coming from... I kept getting "Failed Picture Retrieval" Messages and I had no idea where they were coming from. Now I know.

So, to answer your question, no. Perhaps our phones don;t like each other. try form yours?

She got back to me this evening, and the information was excellent.

I definitely think I will be buying this for myself come Yule!!!!
