    This dress is cute, comfortable and a good length - not too short not too long. I will say it ran a bit bigger than I expected. The liner feels great and is stretchy. I just wish I'd sized down one. The way it is now it doesnt' really nip in at the waist the way it should. Too late to return so I may just have it altered.

    Prim and Proper

      Better than a little black dress, this dress is conservative, but stylish. Add pearls and look totally prim and proper. This dress is versatile and could be worn for many occasions - work, church, ladies luncheon, dinner. The dress is well-made from good-quality fabric. The fabric is thick enough that you may not want to wear this dress on a hot, humid day. And the dress is completely lined. The bodice has more fabric that I can fill with my 36As, so I may have the bodice taken in some. The knit fabric means this dress hardly wrinkles.

      A wonderful multi-purpose dress!

          Best Uses

            The material is nice and thick, and the dress is also lined. The waist is a little lower than usual, which is a great change. It is A-line, but a very gentle A-line, so you don't get that little girl princess feeling. Highly recommended if you want to look nice but value comfort and machine washables!

            Not a good fit

                I am 5 foot 5, average weight, but slightly long wasited and this landed at my last rib. The quality seemed fine, but not good for my body type. Not a huge surprise, but I thought I would try it anyhow.

                      I had such hope for this dress! The Peter Pan collar made me look childish and I felt like I was swimming in it. The fabric is fabulous though and I think it might look nice on a more petite frame. I am 5'8 and ordered the 10L.

                        I am happy to have a new black dress for my wardrobe. I love the fit and feel with the subtle 60s nods. For a ponte knit, it's somewhat forgiving, thanks to the lining. That said, in full candor -- I'll wear with tights or hose so I don't have to mind my tummy area!

                        Overall, I'm glad to have. It will be versatile from work to causal evenings!

                          Kind of made me look like a big doll.

                              There is so much happening at the top of this dress with the detailed collar and the tiny sleeves that I found I looked like a big doll. I don't usually look like a big doll so my guess is that it's the dress and not the body. I'm 5'5" and 112 lbs and got a 4. I'm sure a 2 wouldn't have zipped close and a 6 would have looked like curtains.

                                Love this dress! The contrasting piping around the collar and the extra bias binding above the collar which makes the collar lie flat are both extras only found on quality clothing. The dress is beautifully made and is flattering and fun.
