Measurements for MM Whyteleaf OP

Hi there! I was recently asked to check the measurements of my new Mary Magdalene OP after it arrived (my first brand dress, so beautiful! <3), so I thought I'd go ahead and share some information for people who might be considering purchasing it. :)

Laid flat, the waist measurement of my dress is actually 68-70 cm, instead of the listed 66 -- so quite a bit larger, which was unfortunate for me because my waist is actually only 63 cm lol. Oops! Mary Magdalene is noted for running small, so you can imagine my surprise at having it be too large! The bust, however, is accurately listed at 90 cm. I have a 35 inch bust (plus a slightly padded bra, heh), and this dress fits my upper body like a second skin.

One feature I should
mention is that if you have a long torso or large breasts in comparison to your ribcage (like me), this dress may not fit very well unless you are able to alter it. I had to move the waist ties down several inches to pull the dress in at my waist instead of right under my bustline; luckily I've been sewing for ten years, so it was no problem! :)

To summarize:
Bust = 90 cm
Waist = 68-70
Bodice length: best for small busts
Skirt length: Almost perfect for a 5' 6" person; maybe 2" above the knee?

Here is a picture of me wearing the dress with the waist tied snugly in the back (excuse the wonky neck ribbon and hair, lack of petticoat or makeup, and the messy background; it was late at night and I was just trying to check the fit). I'm a bit shy to post it, but maybe it will be a helpful visual example. For reference, my measurements are 90cm-63cm-91.5cm. :)

Anyway, I hope this helps people who are considering buying this dress! It's really lovely. <3
