Metamorphose English Review



I bought a skirt lucky pack from Meta last winter and ended up selling the whole thing because I didn't really like it. But! When Meta released their Dim Light print I jumped for the reserve! Sorry, if it's a bit wordy. This is my first time doing a review. They sent me the dress in another shopping bag on the outside; not a box. Here's the breakdown:

Aug 31: I reserved the Pinafore Dress Medium Length in Green via their email process.
Sept 3: Meta replied that they received my request and I didn't have to pay until the dress was ready.
Sept 9: I received another email from them to send the money through Paypal (even though I asked to be charged through credit card but either way would work)
Sept 12: Paid! I emailed back wondering if they received my payment and how long shipping would take. No response. 
Sept 14: Dress was shipped out and tracking number was given to me. (By this time the series was available for sale online but only select colors)
Sept 17: Arrived! You have no idea how happy I was. I was trying to hide my big smile so much when I got the package.

Please excuse my photos. I'm 163cm and the dress hits an inch or two below my knee. It's fully lined though not "attached" to the dress if you know what I mean. There's a seperate thin layer of lining. The shirring actually stretches more than I thought it would. (I was thinking that I *might* have to sell the dress because it wouldn't fit.) There are two buttons on each strap which are supposed to be adjustable but there is only one row of button holes so I'm not sure if you wanted to adjust the shoulder straps you would have to cut holes yourself? It came with a matching brooch but mine was glued a bit sideways so I will fix that later. The satin "belt" goes through two loops on the side of the dress. Suprisingly, the satin wasn't as cheap as I thought it looked in the stock photo. The dress also has an invisible zipper on the side, though mine is a little hard to pull up near the middle (you have to give it a good yank to zip it up). It also came with a small paper bag.

Also, does anyone know if we get Membership Points for reserves or is it only through the shopping cart?
Communication (4.5/5.0): Half a point off because Meta didn't respond to my questions and I'm wondering about Points, but other than that there wasn't much of a need for communication.

Shipping (4.5/5.0): Super fast! My order was shipped on Friday and I received it Monday. Half a point off because it would be nice to have it in a box.

Payment (4.5/5.0): Half a point off because I had asked to pay with a credit card (which was an option) but went through Paypal instead. I would have preferred a credit card. 

Quality (5.0/5.0): The fabric is so nice! The print came out clean also. It's a bit heavy, but also lighter than I thought. The color is actually much darker than my photos. I feel like the brooch was "freebie" thrown in so I'm not counting that.
 
And I think that's it. I'm looking forward to the release of matching hairties and socks. Thanks for reading!
