Rated 4 out of 5Â by erinshelly Nice dress, great pattern runs big.
I love the pattern on this dress - it has a great vintage feel. The material is a thin poly and is not lined. I bought this in an XS petite, and found that it ran a bit large. The arms are a bit big around, as is the waist. But it's lovely and different and will be breezy for spring and summer this year. I found that it fit me much better when I used a thicker belt rather than the self belt that was included. It's a little too long for me in the back with it's asymmetrical hem, but I like the dress enough to overlook that. The only other thing about it is that the pleat in the upper back lends it self to lots of volume around the belted waist. Overall, I really like this dress. I do wish it was a bit more fitted. And I have found a few places where the material is frayed, but I trimmed those pieces off with scissors. I plan to wear it with grey heels, causal army green jacket and a thick belt to make a cinched waist.
