Rated 5 out of 5Â by teach123 perfect, except needs pockets
I love this dress even without the pockets. Truth be told - I don't think that the catalogue photo is very flattering with the pockets - adds width to the hip area & who needs/wants that? Patch pockets would have been nice, but still a lovely, comfortable dress that can be casual or dressy

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MichiS Very cute dress
I ordered the XS petite in this dress. I am 5'2-110 lbs. For me, the dress was not tight at all and fit the way I expect a shift to- loose but not huge. The fabric is stretchy and textured and the color (I ordered blue) is amazing. As others have said, no pockets was a bit of a let down because I was expecting them.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by AB115 A Little Tailoring Would Have Gone A Long Way
I'd been looking at this shift dress for a while. I like simple and elegant pieces so I thought this would be perfect. When it went on sale I scooped up an xs in blue. (115# 34-26-36 for reference). Based on other reviews I expected the thickness of the fabric - it is heavy. I'm not sure this would work in the summer unless you live in Canada :) The fabric is not the problem as it is high quality and really rich in color. The issue is with the fit...as all the other reviewers have also indicated. This dress has no tailoring to it at all. A couple simple darts across the bust would have done wonders! This fits like a sack and made my rather small frame look huge. There are also places of lumps and bumps because of the way the fabric falls. It makes no account for any curve of any kind. Sadly this one goes back....
