too short, and bad waistline
The dress was too short for my tastes, and the inset wide waistband did not look good on me.

I really liked this dress. The fabric was comfortable and I liked the style. Unfortunately the dress was too tight around my hips and mid section so I had to return it.

HUGE waist - plus 'belted' design, can't add darts
Well....the price is right so I took a chance. But the waist is really very large. Even photo indicated not very fitted in waist area. I'm a plus, so figured would be just about right on my figure, photo is of a slim model-type, ie perfect figure. IF the design did not have all the bulk of the 'belted' look all the way around the waist I would have just added a couple darts in the back. But 'belted' looking band does extend around the entire body, waist. It would be far too bulky to add darts. What really is needed is to take it apart entirely in the waist area...and create darts in front and back bodice AND skirt quarters....plus shorten the 'belt' band to equal these new measurements. It is doable. I just don't 'wanna.'
And pointless sending back, cost as much as dress. Just so very disappointed in the pattern's design. IF a person really needed sized as pattern pieces are cut, there could hardly be a less flattering design feature than that wide band right at the waist. Guess this is WHY is available at such a discount. : - (

Hope this is offered again! More colors too!
Really like this dress, ordered in Pebble. Looks great right out of the dryer.. Feels comfortable all day.
Fabric is fashionable...would guess it came from an "upscale" store yet very affordable.
"Classic" style yet up to date. I'd love to have this in turquoise and teal.

Good Dress for Anywhere
This dress is well constructed of good fabric. Feels good and would travel well. I ordered a large because my old clothes are getting tighter, but I'm returning this one for a smaller size. Worth trying.

I am 5'3" , a size large, and have a tummy to disguise.
This dress is great for work. The cut also disguises my tummy. The fabric may seem a bit heavy on the polyester for some but it is fine for me. Most people would find it fine for wearing in summer. In AZ I wear it when the temp is below 105 but that's just my need in the heat. The navy isn't quite as dark as what is pictured, but that could be my monitor.
