Petaluma Peep Hem Dress

Rated 4 out of 5 by great everyday dress This dress is fun and the style works for everyday wear. I took home the red pattern. I am 5'10, #135, and have a small chest. I tried on a small and xsmall. The xsmall was form fitting on my torso, but instead I opted for the small, which had a very relaxed look. I thought a loose short dress would be more appropriate than a tight short one. The small fits me almost like a shift, that has a slightly defined waist. One note is that this dress may work better for women with a larger chest. There is extra material in the top section that "wings" out, and did so on me in both the small and xsmall. You can even see the extra material near the armpits of the model in the black version. I think it works for the relaxed look I was going for, but if you are wearing this dress to an event and have a small chest, it may be something to consider. April 11, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cute, Well-Priced, Too High Waisted 3-1/2 stars I love that this dress is reasonably priced yet does not look or feel cheap. The design is also super cute in both color motifs. But there were some major down-sides for me. First, the waist hits too high. I am long-waisted, but I think it would still hit too high on most other women. And because there's an excess of fabric at the waist, belting won't necessarily solve the problem. The end result is that the fit is likely to be unflattering to most body types. This dress is also short, hitting well above the knee in the regular sizes. I'm 5'4 and it felt too short on me. To that end, unless you're really, truly petite, I would order your regular size. Almost a win, but not quite. April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dress! I just saw this dress in the store-- it is super cute and at this price point, I couldn't resist. As we transition into spring, I can wear it with boots and in the summer it'll look good with wedges or flats. I'm 5'3" 120 lbs and the regular size XS fits perfectly. I'm usually uncertain whether to buy reg or petite, but in this dress, the waist of the reg definitely sits in the right place. It's loose and comfy and can be worn belted or not! April 22, 2013

NAVY Style #:27931534 Faced with a lack of comfy-yet-stylish basics, FIDM grad Laura Stang began hand-dyeing embellished vintage tank tops in 2003. Since then, Porridge has evolved into a seasonal line inspired by everything from French wallpaper to Indian kerchiefs. We love the sneaky dose of whimsy a peek-a-boo hem brings to this casual fit-and-flare. Petaluma Peep Hem Dress
