"I like the dress because it is casual but you can dress it up with a scarf. The A-line dress is perfect for my figure that is a little in the “hippy” side! I am planning on wearing it to a party with casual flats & a scarf! "

"Love this dress, comfortable and fits well. The only change I would like are a side zipper, for those of us who are becoming less flexible, and pockets which should be big enough to hold some keys and cash/credit cards. Otherwise; I use this as a three season dress and always get compliments. "

"The perfect all occasion casual dress. It is my "little blue dress." I ordered the 16T. I can have problems with the top being too tight or small, but this one was cut for curves. It washes nicely; I hang it to dry (to keep the length) and it is perfect. It has been wonderful for travel and hot, steamy summer days but looks great with boots and a cardigan. I wish there were other colors, but the denim will be versatile year round. For me, it is part of each season's wardrobe capsule."

"I am 5'3" and weigh 125 lbs. I ordered a 10 petite and it fits except the arm openings are way too large for me. I am petite, especially on top, in other words small busted. The top is too big for me, so I will have to take it in. Other than that, I like this dress. It can be dress up or down with a scarf, as in the photo, or with jewelry."

"Very Attractive outfits. I ordered two since they are hard to get. Very happy with purchase. Buy a little larger size, and take it darts where needed. Solves the problem. "

"Great dress,absolutely love it. Though I just received I am sure I will get years of wear, perfect fit love the darts that fit e it a more tailored fit if they had it I. Different colors I would buy more just like it. "

"With the upcoming heatwave, this dress will be perfect. It's very well made - no dangling threads or seams that need to be tied off. I will enjoy wearing this dress with a variety of accessories when something more than pants or shorts is the appropriate outfit. Chadwick's quality as noted in my recent purchases is very, very good."
June 07, 2017
"This is a GREAT dress. I could wear it every day with different accessories - sweaters, scarves, jewelry. It is a perfect fit on my size 12 & perfect length for me. I LOVE it!"

"I was so excited to see more choices for Petite women in your more recent catalogs! I am 5'2" and weigh 108 lbs. and ordered a 2P. I loved the look of the dress on line and I tried it on when I received it. I was a little disappointed. It was a little long from the shoulder to the bottom of the sleeve opening, the fabric at the neck opening in the back does not lay flat it pooches out, and the waist was not fitted enough. I will keep it and alter it so it fits like the picture. "

"This is the most comfortable and flattering denim dress! The quality is great, and the fit is true to size. The fabric is light enough for Florida summers, too!"
April 09, 2017
"Found this dress to be classic in styling, well made, easy to care for, and true to size! A GREAT "One and Done" dress where your accessories will change it up. I will be wearing this as my casual version of the "LBD" all year long! As a professional Stylist this is a garment I would encourage every women to have in her closet and to include in her travel capsule when packing! OL"

"Love this dress. Super comfortable. Washes well-I put it on a hanger and not in the dryer and no wrinkles! Better quality than some denim I have had from more expensive stores. I am 5' 7" and had to get a 6 tall. The 6 regular was not long enough. '"

"I LOVED this dress but it was still to short for me. I am 5 ft 9 and wear a 12-14 depends on the cut. I ordered the 14 hoping for some extra length. It had to go back. Too short. Nice dress just too short."

"This dress fit perfectly. Very nice stretch denim. Very forgiving as in body figure areas. I am 5' 10" and 148 lbs. Purchased the 10 tall. Would love to purchase same but in diff. colors.. thank you 😊"
February 28, 2017
"Love this dress! Read other reviews and concur with the reviews that said the dress runs slightly small. I usually wear a 6P but ordered an 8P. The front and back darts hit perfectly at the waist and the length is just at the knee. The 8P gave me just a little "wiggle room". I've washed it once and the denim softened great; it's a medium weight denim which I really like. Overall the style, with darts, gives a great hourglass shape!"
February 25, 2017
"Just spot-on. Fit is perfect, denim color is not too light. I have several of these Chadwick's sheaths. The sizing is always true and consistent, I can wash on the gentle cycle and line dry. I am so very pleased with the quality and value of these dresses for work and casual occasions and this dress is a great example of why I love Chadwick's. I saw an almost identical dress at a well known on-line vendor for over twice as much as what I paid."

"A perfect fit! It is rare to zip up a dress and have it be like a glove (with a little stretch for comfort) and this one nails it! The right length, fit, comfort, cut, you name it. I highly recommend this dress."

"This denim sheath is a lovely and versatile piece. I found the fit on the large side. I normally wear size 6 in dresses and shirts, but this dress was too loose. I exchanged it for size 4 and now the fit is perfect. For reference, I'm 5'7", 138 lb, bra size 34b. The length is also great - it comes to just above the knees (like on the photo.)"

"Fit of the dress didn't work. I so wanted to love this dress but there was. too much gaping at the arm holes. I am certain the next smaller size would have been extremely tight through the hips. "
July 08, 2016
"I ordered this dress last month. I came back to order another one today and am so very disappointed that they no longer carry some of the sizes. This is a classic dress, that Chadwicks should carry year round, because it is great for summer and with boots and a sweater, can be great for fall/winter. Please bring this back and also add more colors. It's a classic sheath!!! "

"This is my second denim sheath dress from Chadwicks! The first I got many years ago and wore it so many times, while it was a light coloured denim, it faded out! Thinking I'll have this dark one dry-cleaned! Love the way it fits and the length is perfect!"

" I LOVE this dress... Fits like it was made for me, slightly fitted, but not tight in the waistline..great length, slight stretch. Perfect! I am 5'3" and 135lbs...I also am large busted (really large) and have trouble finding dresses that fit (smaller from the waist down) the size 12 fit great..!!! Also, the denim is lightweight and will be super comfortable spring summer & fall...think denim skirt..without having to pick a top to go with it!! Bought the floral sheath too...LOVE it!"

April 05, 2016
"I have been wanting a denim sheath for the longest. So glad I found this one. Again, I need to have this hemmed and I will need to take it in around the darts, but those are actually adjustments that I have to make on a lot of my clothes. I am sure, that I will get a lot of wear out of this dress. "

"I bought this dress to wear to a party for my daughter's wedding. I knew that it would be extremely hot weather, but it was important to look good as Mother of the Bride. The colors in the dress are beautiful. The dress was nice and cool and went well with a pair of sandals. I stayed looking cool and crisp even though it was well over eighty five degrees. The only problem I had with the dress is it seemed to be larger through the shoulders. I French braided my hair and a gap showed in the back. I will definitely wear this dress over and over again. The dress washed like a dream and had zero fading. Buy the dress!"

"This dress is stunning. I love it. I ordered size 18 in as much as I am tall and carry the weight in the middle. The dress is cut slim and instead of returning it, I'm taking out the side seams, darts and hem to fit. I don't mind. I love the rich colors. Classy."

"The fit is perfect and so flattering! Very slimming. I only wish I would have ordered it in the denim before it sold out. The floral is very pretty and I always receive many compliments when wearing it. I am a 10 - 12 and I always order up from Chadwick's and it works out well."
By Dress-E

"Very flattering but leaves a 'bump' above waist in back probably because of the long zipper. I find myself pulling the dress down in the back upon rising from a seated position to make that "bump" go away. Other than that, it is very flattering. It washes well, leaving little to no ironing needed upon removing from drying on low."

"I bought the garden floral - great fit and colors. I've received many compliments on the dress. I wear it with flats for casual and heels for a little more dressy. You can't tell it's denim except when you're wearing and washing it. I'd like the denim color but see it's sold out."

"This dress is a garden of colors and it fits perfectly! I usually wear 10-12 so I ordered a 12 and it was fine. Length is just below the knee, hugs along hips but not too tight, the fabric has a bit of stretch to it. I have a bit of a tummy but the dress shape hides it pretty well. At work, I paired this with a shrug and some wedge sandles. Really cute!"

"This dress looked so pretty in the catalog. But it would only fit a beanpole figure. It gaped in the shoulders and too tight in the waist. Unfortunately I have a bustline. Chadwicks clothes used to fit me in size 10 or 12, but no longer do. Very disappointing. I will be returning it."

"Great dress. since the sheath dresses tend to run small in the shoulders most of the time, I ordered a size bigger. I wore this dress several times, once with the boyfriend sweater from Chadwicks and once with a sweater I had. Good fit, niece fabric. Got lots of compliments both times on the dress, very figure flattering.( I am slightly busty and small hips and butt. This one dress that can be dressed up or down just by changing, accessories, or/and shoes. Wish it came in black or beige"
