Rated 3 out of 5Â by BummedOut Lining would be nice for a dress of this price...
The print, length and fit are fantastic-my only gripe is: for the price...lets start LINING these dresses (Hello!)!! The material is **extraordinarily** thin on all the Karen Walker dresses...almost too thin. A nice simple lining would really bring these dresses up a few notches and make them just a TAD less cheap-y (This piece is more of a house dress, not going to a wedding material!). If you can skimp on the material and use polyester, you can sure as heck line them and make up for it when you have a steep price tag on it.
Really love the color on this one, I found it to run pretty true to size in the chest area-not baggy or loose. Will be a great addition to a casual spring wardrobe-but I've been wearing it recently with a cardi and some thick tights, works well if you don't mind freezing your tush off *cough*(Line your dresses, please!) *cough*

Rated 5 out of 5Â by gb retro style
Loved the style of this dress so I had to purchase it. I seldom see this type of design and after getting it, I thought it was perfect. Most of the karen walker dresses are polyester so the quality isn't fully there but other than that, it's beautiful. i initially bought petite but it ran way too short (couldn't bend down) so I exchanged it for a regular---perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5Â 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.
