Rated 5 out of 5 by OhEverett Timeless, All-Season Dress
Great heavier-weight dress to wear year-round. Sleeves are just the right length, cut through the bodice is very flattering, and the skirt is fun but sophisticated. In person, the dress actually appears to be black-based with a white pattern (online it looks to have a lot more white than it actually does).
My only complaint is size. I am almost always a size 2 in A-line or full-skirt dresses like this one, but the 0 is still loose under my bust and in the arm holes, showing my bra a bit. My measurements are 34-26-36 for reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timeaftertyme This hits the mark!
Welcome Fall with this lovely transitional dress by Maeve! Reminiscent of old school glamour, this heavier weight poly jacquard is nicely textured in an overall flattering check. The classic black and white is underscored by yellow linings in the bodice and sleeves. FITS LIKE A DREAM, and is TTS, I took my normal size 6 without even trying it on! This is one time that I don't mind poly because of the nice texture and fabric give that allows the dress to mold to your body, but hold you in as well. The fit and flare styling has the perfect length touching just at the top of the knee! I couldn't resist buying at full price because it has everything I look for and love in a dress. Wardrobe staple alert! Can be worn to work, school, church and for business, but will look just as lovely dressed up for dinner with heels and a statement necklace and bag. Looks nice on all age groups too. Love, love, love!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SarahEliza Beautiful dress, but petite sizing is off
I was surprised when I saw this gorgeous beauty in the stores. I don't think I'd have ever chosen it from the online picture, but in person it has a great classic, vintage look. I tried a 0 (I am 5'2", 95 lbs, 32C). For a non-petite dress, the length was actually great, hitting a few inches above the knees. The top was just a bit loose, so I decided to try my luck with the 0P online hoping for a better fit. Unfortunately, the petite version had the exact same width of bust area, though the skirt was now ridiculously short. I would end up flashing an entire room if I tried to raise my arms. The 0P is going back and I think I will pick up the regular size 0. I am so incredibly happy Anthro is carrying all of the new petite sizes. However, with this dress the hem falls too short.
