Rated 4 out of 5┬áby sawhster Cute & Comfy ...
Even though it looks like something you could possible wear in the cool summer, the fabric is not thin at all - is ponte-like in thickness. However, it looks like it will not pill easily which is a bonus.
I typically wear 4-6 in dresses (more often 6), and while I found the size S TTS, the zipper construction is a little poor. Even though the dress has some stretch to it, the fabric edge at the back, near the zipper, pops up (which could have been resolved with reinforced stitching) even with the slightest stretch. Maybe it was just a defect on the one I received. Other than that, the rest of the dress fits very comfortably.
My arms are not skinny like the model's, so I found the sleeves to be a close, but comforting fit.
However due to the strange zipper thing, I am returning and getting a Medium to see if the zipper part lies flat better.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby gogrl really pretty
this dress just came in mail today. I agree w/1st reviewer (& appreciated her input): the quality & thickness of this dress makes it a fall dress for me. the alternating cream stripes are a bit darker & richer in color that pic suggests.
I am 5'4" w/a short torso, and this dress fits great. longer on me than model, as usual.
A really nice dress: kind of a hi/low mix that works v well.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby ChicagoAnn Love! Great piece to dress up or down
I love this dress - it's a nice thick material and it's also soft and comfortable. The most pleasant surprise was that the lace is actually very soft, and not stiff or scratchy at all. As other reviewers have mentioned, the skirt is not as full as it appears in the pictures, but it is still very cute (it would be dressier if it had a fuller skirt, so adding a crinoline slip of some kind would definitely dress it up in a fun way!). For reference: I'm 5'6" and am usually a 2 or 4, and the extra small fits perfectly - nice and fitted at the waist without being tight at all. So happy with this purchase!
