Rated 3 out of 5 by cbryant902 Just okay
This dress is cute in theory, but the execution wasn't quite there. I ordered this in a 2 in the papaya color. For reference, I am 5'3'' 118 lbs and usually wear 0-2/XXS-XS in JCrew dresses. The fit was pretty large all over on me and gave me a frumpy look. I was worried that exchanging for a 0 wouldn't entirely solve the problem, so I'm returning it. I found that, like many dresses with a sewn-in slip, that the slip underlay was disproportionately large compared to the rest of the dress, which adds to the frump-factor. Also, the color was VERY orange, which wasn't the most flattering on me. In a better color with a more tailored fit, this dress could have been a keeper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Michelle The color is all wrong
I bought this dress in yellow for a spring wedding. The cut is ok (a little tight in the bust), and the dress has an airy, lightweight feel which is nice. Unfortunately the color is all wrong. The image shows a soft, pale yellow, but the actual dress is a bright, electric, dirty shade which is borderline ugly. I can't image this color looks good on anyone... I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyAntoniaGirl Beautiful Summer Dress
This dress just came in the mail yesterday. I tried it on and loved it, although it is a little bit short on me. I'm 5'4" and ~115lbs. so sometimes I buy clothes in petite so they fit a bit closer. That's what I did with this dress, so I'm going to exchange it for a regular 2 instead of petite 2, that should fix the length problem. Overall the dress looks well made, it's beautiful ("breezy" describes it well), and I think it can be dressed up with heels and a beaded sash or dressed down with flats and a belt. It also looks great with my new summer hat. :) Time to go on some picnics!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laura Classic and Cool, Beautiful Details
This is a lovely, classic dress. I love it in the blue color - wearing it, I feel as if I am floating over the clouds. I also ordered the dress in yellow, but that color didn't suit me, so I sent it back. I was anticipating a pale lemon yellow, but the yellow dress is actually a bright, somewhat greenish yellow that doesn't pair well with a pale complexion.
The dress is easy to put on, and the translucent overlay hangs lightly from the hips. The chevron pattern of the overlay suggests a 1930s-era tea gown (although a 1930s dress would be much longer, of course). I'm 5'9", and while the waist could have been a little lower for my taste (just half an inch, maybe), I am more than satisfied with this dress. I only wish the yellow color had looked better on me!

Got it in yellow and was a nervous after reading reviews but am so glad i did. I am always a 6 and it fit perfectly and the color was nice.
