"I feel beautiful even on the hottest days!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I feel beautiful, and cool on even the hottest days in this dress. The princess seams are extremely flattering - especially with the ruffle that keeps the skirt looking full. The adjustable straps mean I can adjust it to fit me - and then they stay in place well. Yes, the fabric is thin - and 100% cotton! - thats what I wanted. The darker color on this one means I can wear it without a slip. Easy wash & dry (10 minutes in dryer & remove slightly damp to smooth ruffle flat with fingers; youll have no wrinkles!). Dress dries really fast. Only slight wrinkles develop while wearing dress, but, with this print, dont show. Runs true to size. I ordered a size larger than I used to wear, due to my growing middle-age pear-shape, and can see that if Id wanted a closer fit, my usual size would have sufficed. NO Plastic packaging! These dresses come in a net bag with a button closure (and a pretty tassel; Im using the bags for gift wrapping & storing keepsakes). Want 3 more dresses like this!

This shirt can be worn in professional or casual contexts, and the cut of it looks great on me. I love the little details at the collar and sleeves. Washes nice, looks crisp and lovely.

"Great dress, but does not fit my body well"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Frist, this is a great dress. Fine workmanship and fabric. I like that it is lightweight, but covered up to some extent. When traveling, I sometimes visit a church or other religious building, and being a bit more covered up is more appropriate (or required) than typical summer wear. I could have worn it to work on a casual day, before I recently retired. It could be great from casual to cocktails, depending on how you style it with shoes and jewelry. Due diligence: I returned the dress. I thought it tied at my waist, but the seam hits higher, almost empire-style under my bust -- and I am not a tall woman. If this style works for you, it is a great dress. For me, it is not flattering, and I dont like ties around my rib cage - I like to breathe without feeling a restriction. I dont think ordering a smaller size would fix the problem. If the seam was more at the waist, I would have worn this dress many places, and even looked for more colors or prints from this producer.

Best Uses

  • Versatile - casual to cocktails
  • Versatile - errands to work to cocktails - depending on shoes and jewelry
