Having stumbled across JJ's House website, I must have spent weeks ooohing and aaahing over the many stunning evening gowns before I decided on this one, believing that it woudl suit my figure best.
I was due to attend a friends 40th birthday masquerade ball and had bought the mask which had both purple and green feathers and I ordered a couple of sample of fabric first (well worth doing as monitors give a different hue). I decided go with Recency which is a rich purple/blue colour and which my friends said was a real Cadburys purple!
I'm a 5'9" tall lady who is a UK size 16/18, so I took a chance and went for a size 22 (US18W) based on the measurements and also knowing that I was on a two week cruise prior to the ball, so needed a little wiggle room.
Order was placed on the 9th March, order was shipped on the 17th March and with me the following week. There's a whole lot of material in this evening gown, so I was amazed that it turned up in a relatively smallish box!
But oh my!! The gown is stunningly elegant in it's simplicity with weighty material that hangs beautifully and when you walk the train flows beautifully behind you!! The ribbon lacing is attached at the ends (which surpised me) so with some gentle pulling, we were able to nip the waistline in a little further to create that desired hourglass shape. The pleating across the bodice hides a multitude of sins and the padding in the bra was perfect for holding everything in place!
I've worn plenty of ball gowns and evening dresses in my life, but never before had I truly felt like a princess until that night!! The gown was much admired by my neighbours, my friends, the staff at the location and complete strangers.
I shall be wearing this again on a cruise on the Queen Victoria, if only for effect and safe in the knowledge that no one else will have one similar :o)
A superb gown for which there aren't enough words to praise! Thank you JJ's House!
Update my review. Very pleased with the quick and very nice response to the issues I had with the dress. They were really trying to please, and do care how you feel about your experience here. I will continue to purchase my formals here, I love the value and price and I always pay the extra to have made to my measurements. Like I said, I love the dress, and after the Ball I will post of picture of me in it.
Hello, I desire to order this dress, however, I would like to request images of the item in Burgundy, Champagne, Royal Blue, Dark Navy, and Black.
Thank you very much. I would appreciate an immediate response, as time is of the essence.
This dress is the ultimate amalgam of beauty and class, in every detail. The fabric is weighty enough to drape and resist wrinkling as the evening progresses.
This is a work of art, quite simply, from the shoulders to the drop waist ruffle, the elegant and subtle train, to the ribbon tie back, which is not only uniquely feminine, it also ensures the perfect fit.
Everything about this piece is tailored to flatter the wearer's form.
For those that feel the need to alter this dress by changing any part of it's style, I would suggest a different dress. This dress is perfect as the sum of it's parts, and really shouldn't be changed.
I can't recommend this piece enough. Enchanting....!
do you have this dress in color hunter green, fushia, regency, grape and royal blue

DANKE LIEBES JJ´S HOUSE TEAM,
für dieses wunderschöne Kleid.Ich bin hin und weg. Es passt wie angegossen und die Farbe übertrifft meine Vorstellung. Wunderbares Material und tolle Verarbeitung- und das alles für diesen Preis. Das hätte ich wirklich nicht erwartet.
Ich freue mich sehr es bald anziehen zu können.
PS.: Die Schleppe ist wesentlich länger als auf dem Bild, aber wirklich wunderschön.
Viele Grüße aus Berlin,
Hi, I plan on ordering this dress and I have all my measurments ready, however, I need to order this dress as soon as possible but with an alteration to the train; I would like to have the train hemmed/tailored off (changing the dress to have a traditional 'hollow to floor' length skirt). I have emailed this question and received no response. This order is time crucial and I would need to place this order as soon as possible, so if you would please contact me back to let me know if this is a possibliity? Thank you.
Could you send me pictures of this dress in burgundy and navy blue please.
