Note: Just as others have noted these dresses are very well made including fully lined. For me this means that it is a bit too heavy to wear in the Arizona heat. I will be removing one of the linings to make the dress thinner. For most people it will be just fine and was very nice to see because it only adds to the quality of the garment. I don't see it as a negative but a positive in their craftsmanship. I am not a seamstress but removing the thicker lining wasn't difficult at all. Fortunately, I wasn't charged any additional fees at the time of delivery and I live in Phoenix, Arizona.
