Perhaps I'm just not getting this?
Above, you say:
C'est in sentences "it is + a/the/my... + thing"
C'est une jolie robe.
It is a pretty dress.
The sentence above is referring to a specific dress, otherwise how could we say it is pretty?
Yet, further down the page, I read this:
"...Il est/elle est for statements and opinions related to specific things:
Tu aimes mon pull ? -Oui, il est très beau.
Do you like my sweater? -Yes, it's very nice..."
According the this, the sentence should be: "Elle est une jolie robe".
This question relates to:French lesson "C'est vs il/elle est: Saying it is"
