I need new outwear to meet up with my friends so I decide to order the new outfit "Aries" long version

★ Order Placing Process and Communication

The order period was just only for few days, and I had miss the order period. (OTL)
But she take my order it was very kind, even I pass the order period, it was very lucky to me.

And communication was fast.
I ask her to make collar(neck) lower than her official dress,
My neck is short so think official dress collor will be to long for me.
She said "If design doesn't change so much, I can change details for you" and she make collor low to me.
And after few days later, she send me photos that she made.

★ Package Shipment

Dress was neatly wrapped in the plastic bag and it was from a box.
The package arrived with no problems
It takes only 7days that I got to her.(it takes in 1-2days when delivery something in Korea)
I was very gald to have the dress fast, and also it was quite fits well to me!
