Rated 3 out of 5
Â by asta17 I really like this dress in principle, but there are some things that prevent me from fully recommending it. On the plus side, the fabric is very soft and comfortable (no itching). The length is good on me (5'1). It's not lined but doesn't really need to be since it's not sheer and a thicker material. However, the fabric feels like it might stretch out, and the hem on the one I tried already seemed a little flimsy and uneven. I like the concept of the "patchwork," but the placement didn't quite work for me. The colors are nice, but the print left something to be desired - the floral sort of looks like Hawaiian print, which seems out of place on a fall sweater dress. The top portion was loose on me (but not surprising since I have a 32A chest), but I think the petite version would be far too short since the regular was already above the knee.

This dress is absolutely beautiful in person. Very good quality knit that can be expected from Leifsdottir. I'm about 5'6" 145 lb and while I typically wear a medium, I sized down in this beauty. Can't wait to wear it with tights and boots when it cools down!

This dress is absolutely gorgeous and of superb quality. The fabric is a blend of cotton and silk and it certainly feels soft and "silky" in touch. It hugs the body. I normally like my dresses lined but in this case I don't think a lining would do any good. The colors are vibrant, more so in person than in the photos. I noticed some reviewers have commended on the length. I am 5'8 and the dress reaches closer to my knees than on the model so unless you're looking for a knee-lenght dress, you should be fine. At 5'8 and 157 I got the medim and it fits beautifully. This will be a staple in my closet.
