Rated 4 out of 5Â by estella123 I love the material!
I saw this dress in the catalog in the plum color some time back and wanted it right away, but waited until I could try it on at a store. Finally did and I did love the dress....but wasn't thrilled about the price tag. I have a hard time spending that much on a dress that I'll probably be covering up the top half most of the time. Finally it went on sale - yay!
The blue print is gorgeous! And I'm not a print kind of person. But the colors in it are so beautiful (bold, jewel colors) and the material is so rich (soft, fine wale cord) that it's just heaven. The skirt is rather full, and the torso is rather short. The bust comes quite low on me because I have a longer torso, so like I say, I'll most likely need to wear something over it or underneath it to cover my chest area up a bit more. It hits right at my knee. I'm 5'8" and 128lbs and I got this is size 2. I could have gone with a size 4 and the torso fit a little better lengthwise, but it gaped a bit so I went down a size. For fuller chested girls this would probably not be an issue. The smocking on the sides/back do allow to go down a size, so it's not too tight on me - just a little shorter in the torso.
Love this dress!!! But wouldn't have bought it at full price because of the torso length issue.

This dress is amazing! I had been debating whether or not to get it for a while and finally decided to purchase it and I'm glad that I did! The fit is is perfect, it hits just at the knees, I have a longer torso and shorter legs but I didn't seem to have any problems with the bodice being to short. The elastic panels on the sides of the dress make the top very comfortable and if you are top heavy and normally go a size up in dresses because of it, don't because the elastic gives the girls ample room, normally I am a 16 in dresses but the 14 fit perfectly. This is a great dress and an absolute steal at the sale price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by leelee32 Perfect for the holidays!
Living in La, you struggle with wanting to look like your dressing for winter while still fighting the 80 degree weather that is still around in November. This dress is prefect because the corduroy is light weight and has the nice fall/winter hues. Fits like a dream and is flattering. I am 5'9", 125 lbs., 34A and the zero was the winning size!
