    Pretty, but not on me - 5/19/2014
    By: from Canada

    I like the cut and colour, the fabric is a bit stiff, but would likely soften, and the design is pretty. However, I am short and on the heavy side (curvy, 34DDD, 5 ft), and it looks like a sack on me. Back it goes, with regret.

    feel pretty wearing it - 3/11/2014

    This dress is light weight and lovely. I plan to wear it to a summer wedding with sandals. I have a hard time finding dresses and consequently have only a few. I am happy to add this to my collection .

    Dressy for evening or social - 3/10/2014

    This dress is so versatile. Can be worn for work, play and evening. While the price is amazingly affordable, it is no way cheap looking. Bargain for the money.

    Dress is beautifully made with flowing fabric. It runs a little big so am ordering a size smaller. Can't wait to wear it!

    Sorry it didn't work out - 3/1/2014
    By: from Northern CA

    I had admired this dress for awhile, and finally ordered when the price went down. I ordered it, with some misgivings based on other reviews, in two different sizes, my regular and a size smaller. Unfortunately, the dress just looked very frumpy on me, in either size, and is being returned. The workmanship seemed fine; the fabric had quite a bit more brown in it than the photo shows; and the "feel" of the fabric was somewhat "crusty". Since it's "dry clean only" I don't know if it would soften up or not. Anyway, not a keeper!!

    Almost perfect - 2/12/2014

    Pretty dress, but the XS was still a bit too big and the color is darker than it appears in the catalog, so not so good for me. Love the details and the overall feminine look.

    A Keeper - 9/10/2013
    By: from Lexington, KY

    A pretty, relatively simple dress. I like the fabric, and I think the color is lovely, true to the picture as far as I can tell. As others have commented, this dress runs large. I usually wear XL to 1X, but in this the L fits best. Some people have had issues with the hem, but the hem on mine is fine.

    Not as pictured - 9/5/2013

    I liked the material and how the dress was made. But it did not fit like it showed in the picture. It was very baggy and too long. I was disappointed.

    Pretty Good, but Pricey - 8/1/2013
    By: from Upstate NY

    This was my first ever Orvis purchase. I like the dress and will keep it and surely use it. But it's not, in my opinion worth the price. Fabric is comfortable and has a nice drape. I am not bothered by the darkness of the color - seems pretty true to the website view, and I wore it to a summer outdoor wedding. Given the hot humid weather, it was pretty comfortable. My main complaint is that the hem was REALLY uneven when I bought it, and not just because of my bulges! I would have had to shorten it anyway (WISH more styles offered in petite!), but even if I were the right height for it, I would have wanted to even up the hem. I was in a hurry and leaving town, so paid a dressmaker to alter it for me on top of the price of the dress - and the piece she cut off was incredibly uneven! For this price, the workmanship should be better.

    Nice - 7/31/2013
    By: from Brevard, FL

    Love the light, flirty material along with the color and print. Hem was very uneven and had to have it fixed. Dress is not true to size. It runs very, very large, so I suggest you get a smaller size then you usually do. Over all I am happy with the dress and think it's very pretty.
