    Really fun dress! It is very green, much more so than the picture shows but it is a great fit and really fun to wear. It is perfect for a night out or a summer party. It is a unique design and I have received many compliments. They pleats are a bit lower on the waist so it really compliments your shape.

      I lusted after this dress from the first time I saw it in the catalog. I was so excited to see it on sale at a price I could purchase it. It's a gorgeous blue color and a flattering silhouette. Can't wait for my boyfriend to take me on a nice date to wear it!

        I had to return this dress as it didn't fit my body type, but the dress is very flattering. I purchased the blue and it was a nice shade of blue.

          I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it in the catalogue. I took all my strength to wait for it to go on sale. It has that cute retro look but has the great shape for my short torso. I am a petite 6 or 8. I purchased the 8 just in case of shrinkage. I got so many compliments when I wore this to my sister's b-day party!!

            I bought this dress for a wedding in October and with a cardigan it will be perfect. It will also be great with some cute flats for a brunch. The color is true to the picture and the white is subtle until you start to twirl which is great. The only issue is the straps are a bit too long and I will have to take those in but that happens since I'm short.

            I purchased a size 6 based on reviews and it fits like it was tailored to my body. I typically wear a small or size 6 top(34B) and medium or 8 bottom but as this dress has the full skirt, I went for the fitted top. The color is like the brightest green grass, and with the white pleats inserts, it makes my summer skin glow!

            I love this dress but the zipper is cheap and almost impossible to get up even when the dress is on the hanger.

                I really wanted to love this dress. It fit me very well (f quite form-fitting since I'm a 34DD) on top and through the waist. However, for my body shape (hourglass) there was just too much fabric around the hips. Full skirts just do not work for me. Also, the white on it makes the skirt look a lot like a cheerleader skirt. The shade of blue however is gorgeous, and I'm sad I had to return it because I love cotton and linen machine-washable dresses for the hot humid American south summer.
