"The dress was lovely, well made, but too small for me in the torso. "

"I love this dress. I ordered it in navy and tulip. My only complaint is that the regular size is too short; however I solved that problem and ordered the tall. I am 5'3-1/2" tall, and the tall hem comes a fraction above mid-calf. This is such a basic all-around style for all ages and body sizes that it should be available in long, mid-calf and short lengths.. The linen fabric does wrinkle, but is easily steam-ironed. I highly recomment this dress."

"I loved the fit and the fabric of this dress. I am both tall and "of a particular age" and found that this was the perfect length. I also like that fact that it had sleeves. Not a matronly dress but perfect for me."

"This is the best dress I have purchased online. The fit is perfect and fits exactly according to the size chart. I have never worn a dress that fits so perfect and feels so comfortable. It is just as shown and the colors are great. This can be a casual summer dress or a fancy night out dress. The length falls just below my knees.I will definitely order in more colors. I ordered the navy but will definably order another color"

"Received item on time. Great fit and wears well. I was a little apprehensive since I ordered a Tall (I'm 6'0")...glad I took a chance. The price was reasonable. I accessorized with classic pearls, and received a TON of compliments. I will be ordering different colors soon!"

"Beautiful fabric & color. Classy style. Bodice fit a bit tight, but larger size would be too large elsewhere. No seam allowance to allow for adjusting top.Just a little would help. Perfect length for me. "

"I bought this dress in navy and pink and really love the style and fit. However, I did buy TALL to get the length. The hem comes to just above mid-calf--I'm 5' 3 1/5"-- and covers my 81-year-old knees with scars. The size is fairly true to size. I ordered 16T since I'm sized somewhere between 14 and 16, so it fits a little loose but not too loose. I recommend this dress for all-occasion wear."

"I bought the sea spray in a size 6, along with the perforated ballet flats in sea glass. They blend perfectly, even though the shoes are slightly darker than the dress. I received many compliments when I wore the dress, and I even referred someone to the website. I love the dress; simple style but beautiful. Only complaint is that it does wrinkle, but after ironing, it looks great."

"You will regret buying this dress. The linen fabric is cheap, and tiny dark threads are randomly woven into it and the fabric dye doesn't cover them. In addition, the care instructions tell you to machine wash in cold and tumble dry on low and if you follow these instructions, the dress will shrink about 1-1.5". This wasn't a problem for me, but the polyester lining doesn't shrink, so it hangs below the hem of the dress."

"I purchased the yellow sheath and jacket as well as the hyacinth jacket and patterned dress. It says machine wash, cold, and try on low; however, I just did that (washed and dried on delicate) and am not a happy camper. The lining of each dress is hanging below the dress itself! Now I have to adjust the lining so it doesn't hang below the dress. I think they better put dry clean on it."

"I wanted to post an update on the linen blend sheath. I followed the directions and washed it in cold water, gentle cycle, and tumbled dry on low. In spike of careful handling, it still shrank a little in width and length. It was a roomy before, so it still fits. Also ironing will be needed but it is not as wrinkled as I thought it would be. So I reduced from 5 stars to 4 stars for that reason. I still like it enough that I plan to purchase it in another color because it is a comfortable dress, I like the vibrant colors, and the price is reasonable."

"Even though I usually wear a size 2, I was confident ordering the 4P after reading that it runs a little small. It was a perfect fit, and the yellow is gorgeous. Yes, it will wrinkle, because it is linen. It will be a very cool, comfortable dress for spring and summer. I like it so much that I plan to order at least one more color. It is washable even though it has a lining. Since the fabric is a little thin, I can see the line (slightly) of my half slip at the waist area, but it is not enough to bother me. This may not be as noticeable in the other colors."

"Very pretty dress, sizing is on target. The only draw back is that it wrinkles easy. I have learned my lesson and won't be ordering linen clothing anymore. If you put this dress on and get in the car to go somewhere, you can be certain that you will have several ugly, heavy set wrinkles by the time you arrive at your destination even if it's just 5 minutes away."

"I was looking for a sheath dress that was knee length; others I have are a little shorter. I'm between 5'10 and 5'11" and the size 14 hits me right below the knee, Perfect! I orderedt the Pink and it's perfect for summer. The dress is lightweight and fun to wear. I am very satisfied."

"I have a difficult time finding dresses. I am tall and like a below-the-knee length. That's why I ordered this dress because it was advertised as 41 1/2" long. However, it is only 40" long. One and a half inches shorter makes a big difference to me. If it shrinks any after washing I won't be able to wear it. Other than a littler shorter than I like, I love the feel and fit."
