Great versatile everyday dress!

    This is such a terrific little dress! I bought the sandstone, which has the added benefit of not showing dog hair when I get a friendly greeting from my golden retriever. :) I get compliments every time I wear it, and love that I can toss it in the washer and hang it dry. I am 5'10", and probably should have gotten the long . . . but after I lengthened the R as much as possible, the length hit just above the knee.

    The fabric is thick, which means it doesn't show wrinkles and would travel well. At this price, this little number is a no-brainer. Love it!

      This is a great day to night dress. I am 5'9", athletic build and the 8R fit great. I sometimes require a tall in Boden dresses but this dress is a comfortable length for me. The fabric is a good quality and wrinkle resistant making this a great dress for travel.

        Great except for shoulder fit

          Best Uses

            So sorry to have to return this, but the shoulders stuck up in a weird way (I am short-waisted, so maybe that was the problem). I considered having the dress shortened along the shoulder seam, but then the neckline would have been very high. Loved the vertical braid trim - great for a short woman -- and the ease of the dress. But the upper body fit simply didn't work.

              I would have worn this for special occations but it didn't work for me. The combination of the beautiful braid and woven more casual cotton fabric seemed an odd choice. It was also too small for me so it went back.

              I am a teacher as a well as student and need to dress professionally, but yet comfortably because I have long days. This dress retains its shape throughout the day and can be dressed up for going out after work or down for a day at work and within the classroom.

              Didn't work for me

                    I get what this dress was trying to do, but it didn't work for me. I have a straight silhouette (36-26.5-34.5), and this wasn't flattering. It was a little poochy in front, and I just didn't feel great in it. I like the cream and black color scheme, though, and the quality was good. It just needs darts.

                    I ordered the cream with black. It was a little too busy for my petite frame. Perhaps more flatering on someone who is taller (I'm 5'1). I sent it back.
