Collection by Korto Dress with Braid Detail
I got this in blue. Its very pretty and the material is of a good quality. I wanted it in tangerine but it was sold out in my size. Please send more! I would purchase another in tangerine. Also, please design a nice shrug to go with it because I am arm-conscious as many ladies are. Please give us MORE from Korto & other Project Runway designers! One reservation, the belt could have been better quality material & a little lower.
Not A Good Fit
QVC was out of my size so I ordered one size down, I was planning to wear this to my nieces wedding in September and will be losing weight. The sequins started falling off before I got the dress on. There was way too much material on the bottom But it fit fine. I'm a 38D and expected the top to be a little tight but there was no way I could close it. The sides were inches apart. Someone suggested ivory would've been better on the top and I completely agree. I ordered the dress in navy and the top color was dingy. The pockets are a great idea and the navy fabric was very nice. Just too much of it. Wouldn't recommend ordering this dress until the sizing issue on the top is resolved.
Was a Little Nervous
I was a little nervous when Lisa picked this dress on Project Runway. There were 2 other dresses I liked. This would have been my 3rd choice.
Now that I see the finished product, I think it is pretty. I don't know if the top color is the best color for the skirt, but as it ends up, it is pretty.
I am considering buying eventhough it has been modified from the original.
still dont know what color to chose.
What a beautiful dress to wear at the Captain's table for our upcoming cruise!!! Since I'm a red head, I was so glad it was also offered in navy!!! Korto is such a great designer!!! I've loved her style from the very beginning! This dress' fit, form and design is PERFECTLY made for a "normal" sized woman!!! The material feels and looks like a very high quality... it makes me feel PROUD to wear an All Star dress!!! I wish we could see more of her designs offered on QVC! Thank you so much for sharing this dress on QVC!
Got this in BOTH colors, in my regular size and all I can say is DREAMY. Modeled them for my BF and he hit the floor, we're planning where to go now. No BRA issues which was delightful. The flow and fit of the skirt is so FLATTERING, I feel like a princess. If I had been a fly on the wall I'd have whispered in the ear of the Project Runway judges, the following:
This designer's finale collection is a mastery of cut and construction, and her taste level is unequaled. This group of garments look to be 100% silk and 100% cotton and instead of looking like a competition group they are couture quality as if already sitting in an upscale boutique. She is more than capable of putting on a runway show as her garments are cohesive and share elements that have been adroitly adapted for each piece. You can tell ALL the pieces have the signature of one designer who is seasoned and greatly talented. What an imagination. PICK HER.
Insulting size range
This is a dress that could flatter ANY body type, which I would think a curvy woman like Korto could understand. The fact that this is offered in limited sizes is just INSULTING! It needs to correct the issue with the bust size, and be offered in more sizes and colors. Until then, I would not recommend purchasing it.
Stunning! (but too tight on top)
This dress is GORGEOUS! I got the tangerine. I have olive toned skin, so the colors made me look really good. But, like others are commenting, the sizing is "off". I'm 5'5" and wear a 2 in dresses and 2/4 in pants with a 36" A cup bra size. And it fit perfectly until I went to zip it at the rib cage. Wouldn't zip up. In fact, I couldn't get both sides to even touch. And I know the 4 would be too big in the waist. So bummed, because this dress is just beautiful and so well made. Korto, please make more designs for us, but adjust the sizing because your designs rock and I want to own them!
This dress was wrong on many levels, the price, the color of orange is more fluorescent than a salmon orange which is not a good look very long, way to much going on with this dress!
Elegance with Pockets ... SCORE!
Pockets. Pockets. Pockets. Yes! This a beautiful dress. The price is reasonable for the high end design. Incredible that the fit seems to work for almost any body type. For hourglass figures with a fuller bust and curves to match, this dress draws attention exactly where it should and covers up what needs to blend.The dress minimizes lower body curves with the drape of the layers and enhances the upper body with the fabric gathering in the bust, resulting in the appearance of a smaller mid section. YaY!
I was so excited to get this dress. One reason was because I don't have as many elegant dresses in my wardrobe and it is nice to have one for that special date night or for a big event. Another reason for being so excited was because I love Project Runway and admire Lisa Robertson for her taste. I am 5' 10" and wear a size 10. As soon as I saw the episode, I ordered it right away because I couldn't wait to get it! When the dress came in, I put it on right away. It fit perfectly, until I started zipping it up. The dress by the belt was WAY too small. I am a singer, so I naturally have a bigger rib cage. I thought I would go up one more size and try size 12. Not only did it not fit once again on the belt by my rib cage, but the dress just looked too big around the hips as well as in the chest. I knew that even if I ordered a size 14 and it ended up fitting by the rib cage, it would look huge everywhere else. I am so truly disappointed. The fabric is absolutely beautiful and the pockets are just so fun. I love the colors and the draping on both the top and bottom. If the area by the sash was elastic, that would help the problem of being too small. Please remake this dress or do something like this again in the future because I guarantee I will be buying it.
I got this dress in a size 14. I love it!! Wore this to a New Year's eve party and got lots of compliments on the dress and how flattering the colors were for my complexion. Best of all was that I was comfortable all night.
QVC please bring more items from Korto.
