Rated 5 out of 5Â by JulieBean Very cute dress!
I loved this dress when I first saw it, and I was so lucky that it fit like a glove on me.
Folks are right--there is something kind of funny going on with the sleeves (though I really didn't mind, they just have a tiny poof) and the stomach is a tad poofy, but I realized I don't even see the tummy poof in the mirror (only when I look down!)
Overall though it's beautiful, with a mix of being shapely and structured, while also very feminine and flowy. The color is great--a cute, vintage-y cherry red. The fabric feels nice, given that it's polyester (would have loved if it were real silk, but that would be a pain to clean so this is nicer)
And the fit was awesome on me. I am 5'4", 171 lbs, with a 34 DDD chest, but a much smaller waist. I bought an 8 and it was perfect. If you are more flat chested, it will likely be blousy on top, but for us busty, hourglass girls, it's perfect and insanely flattering.
I got the regular--not petite-- and was happy I did. It hits just about an inch above the knee for me, and while a tiny bit shorter than I like to wear most dresses, it's still completely appropriate and comfy.
I look forward to dressing this up, dressing it down (with stocking and boots even), or even wearing to the office with a cardigan.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Noah Needs minor alteration on sleeves
Overall this dress is very well made, and stunning fit/shape when on, with exception of the sleeves....They are a little loose and show a little too much of the armpit area. I simply tucked it about 1cm in under the back and put a couple stitches in to make them fit a bit tigher, and now it looks great. Might fit someone with bigger arms perfectly. I'm 5'7", 140#, and the 6 fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by tepper Very cute, tummy is a bit poofy
This dress is super cute, fabric is thicker than I expected, so it keeps the nicely draped shape. The petite fits perfectly, although it is a little shorter than I typically like, but that is a personal thing. My only complaint is that the tummy area is a bit poofy and not flat. It can make you look like you have a bit of a belly. If you don't then having good posture eliminates it, but it might accentuate a belly.
