      This dress is great--it has a slightly retro feel, and the ruching is very flattering. I am 5'9" and 145 pounds and the 8L fit perfectly, hitting just below the knee. With a fitted cardigan, it will work for the office, but could easily do for a cocktail dress. The pattern is really nice--not too big of flashy, but still interesting.

          I've always avoided knit dresses because I thought they would be too clingy, but of the 3 dresses I tried, this was the best! The other 2 woven fabric dresses were lovely on models, but looked frumpy on me. Had to exchange for a size up to an 8 (should've read the reviews). Measurements are b36 w27 h38 - it's form fitting, but not clingy; the fabric drapes nicely. I ordered a long even though I'm only 5'4" because I wanted the length. The waist is at natural waistline which I really like. Normally, I'm more for comfort than style - this has both.

            I can't say enough positive things about this dress. I am long in the torso, and this dress fits wonderfully. Perfect for work and afterward. Very soft, comfortable fabric. Lovely pattern.

              What a fabulous dress! It fits so well and is incredibly flattering. The pattern was not at all busy on me, as small patterns almost always are. I can't believe how comfortable it is, but I guess that has to do with the soft fabric that drapes so beautifully. A must for one's wardrobe!

                  Purchased this for my 20th high school reunion--I want to look good without seeming as though I'm trying too hard, kwim? The dress is very slim fitting, so I like that the neckline is not low--keeps it classy. The cut of the cap sleeves is very unusual and flattering. Although it's unlined, the top half is double-layered, which smooths the line a bit, although it definitely requires particular undergarments--smoothing bike shorts and a genie bra are perfect. The multi retro leaf is a great seasonless color scheme--a deep purple ground with coral and mint. It'll go with so many different accessories. I think it's wearable to work in the fall but will need a cardigan over and tights to play down the clingy fit.

                        The reviews were helpful, and I correctly sized up from my normal Boden dress size. But even still, the dress was not for me. Too body conscious. If I had a great figure it would be attractive. But it was too curvalicious for me!

                          I bought this dress for work, looks very nice with or without a blazer. My issue is the fit, since the 10 is body-skimming, but the 12 is just way too big. I went with the 10, and feel that it may have shrunk when I washed, even though I washed it in cold water and lay flat to dry. So, if you are between sizes, you may want to size up and then watch it shrink when you wash it...

                            This is a great dress. The fabric feels wonderful, lays on my body well, and is very pretty. The cut is very flatering because of the knot gathering. I ordered a size 8L and I am 5'10" with a 32DD chest, and usually a size 6-8 in dresses. I plan to wear it as a casual summer day dress that can easily be dressed up for a night out or party.
