Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful print, hate the polyester I'm completely confused by Karen Walker's sizing. I usually wear 4-6, and I fit into a size 2 in a different dress by Walker. I couldn't begin to zip this dress up in a 4. I had to size up to a 6. I'm 5'6", 34B and a 28-inch waist. The dress fits snugly from the ribcage to the waist, and I'm a bit bigger at the ribcage than the waist, which may explain my fit issues. Overall, the print and cut are beautiful and very flattering. The dress, however, is made from a not-so-nice polyester. For the price, I'd expect better fabric and a garment that is lined. I will keep the dress because of the cute shape, but won't likely consider other items from this designer. December 10, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty, classic, dress! I really like this dress. I am usually a 6 or an 8 in anthro dresses and I ordered a 6. It fits pretty well, but I am small in the ribcage area---if you are usually between sizes and ordering this dress without trying it on, I would recommend sizing up if you are average to large around the ribcage, and sizing down if you are small in that area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by just like the red one This dress fit exactly like the red one she made a couple of months ago (currently on sale). I found it to run a tad large actually, particularly in the bust (I'm a 34 C#. In all fits very well once you size down, and is comfortable and flowy. Looks cute layer w/a long sweater #need to be heavy to weigh down the poofy sleeves though) over the top and paired w/tights and pumps or even boots for a more wintery look. November 28, 2012

BLUE MOTIF Style #:26179085 Finding inspiration in everything from vintage wallpaper to movie stills, New Zealand-based designer of the eponymous line Hi There from Karen Walker has us hooked on her primary-rich palette and retro-inspired prints. This vintage-inspired frock is a throwback to yesteryear with its ladylike silhouette; pair it with mary-janes and a cherry-hued pout. Penrose Dress
