Rated 4 out of 5 by Urbananarama Cute dress, runs large
I've been searching everywhere for work-appropriate summery dresses, preferably with short sleeves. I was excited to find this dress, and followed the advice of others who said Karen Walker dresses run small. I am usually a 6 or 8, long legs, short torso, larger bust, so I went with the 8. Bad call. The sleeves were huge, the top didn't fit right, and the skirt was too long. I don't know if another round of size inflation is going on, but go with a smaller size if you're in between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by namesarehard Great color, tight shoulders, runs a little large
I love Karen Walker, so I couldn't resist this dress. I ordered a 2 because I own a 2 in a different Karen Walker dress, and while it will work for me, it runs a little large through the chest area (I'm a 32C, 5'6, 127 pounds). The arm area is a little tight if you, say, want to raise your arms above your head, but that's par for the course with most dresses that have sleeves. I wish the fabric wasn't polyester, but it's so pretty that I can over look it. The back has a lovely little keyhole that is a nice touch as well.
