Taobao spree shipping prices?

I'm looking at purchasing this dress from HMHM
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=11022h4O.3-ifiB.h-4b7IS&id=13769871250&

I was going to go through Taobao spree but when I put the item into their EMS calculator for shipping to Canada (I estimated that it would weigh 3 kg) it came up as 64.16 for the total price!!!
Is that right? It seems like a lot of money to ship one dress, and it's not even including the service fees from taobao spree. Someone please tell me I'm doing something wrong, because I can't justify paying almost as much for shipping as I did for the dress itself.
Also, is 3 kg a good estimate? I've got absolutely no clue, so I just googled the average weight of a dress and went from there.
