    Beautiful dress, with pockets! - 4/13/2014
    By: from NYS

    I ordered this dress knowing I would have to cut off several inches since I am 5'2". But I loved the pockets and the fabric with no spandex. It's hard to find dresses without stretch anymore and the stretch makes them hot in summer.

    My new Sunday dress - 3/17/2014
    By: from Florida

    I don't wear dresses much anymore because they never fit right. This one fits perfectly and I love that it doesn't button all the way down, as many shirtdresses do. The fabric feels silky to the touch. A great buy.

    This dress is great for the office and will follow you through the day into the evening. Has style and most importantly side pockets!

    A Graceful Dress - 12/10/2013
    By: from New England

    I ordered this dress because I had another one in the same style. It is the kind of dress you can wear alone or add a jacket, and always be ready for almost any occasion. I like classic styles, and this is one of them. It seems to make my figure look slim--a welcome result!

    shirtwaist dress - 10/16/2013
    By: from Hardy, VA

    I have this dress in brown and white and love it. I hand wash it in cold water even though it says to dry clean, with no problems. I only have to lightly iron and it is good as new! I bought the dress when it first appeared in the catalogue and have gotten much wear out of it.

    Versatile Dress - 9/28/2013

    I was looking for dresses for work and found this dress to fit the bill and beyond. The print is diminutive and elegant. I can see this dress in other calico prints and dark colors. I am 5'4" about 120 lb. and wears a 4P or XS in Orvis dress. I hope to see more dresses in Petite. I took a star off because I wish the dress is machine washable.

    Excellent dress - 9/1/2013

    The one complaint about this dress was that it was short waisted, but it was perfect for me. It is pretty and comfortable.

    Beautiful dress, but.... - 8/5/2013
    By: from High Plains, USA

    Beautiful dress, but maybe its sized a bit small...? I normally wear a size 8 but this was pretty much skin tight on the top, and VERY short waisted!! I'll try a 10. Normally I LOVE Orvis clothes!!

    As others have remarked, the dress is short waisted--but that was not a problem for me, especially since the sash belt can be placed wherever. The fabric is attractive and will travel well.

    Top of dress too big - 4/15/2013
    By: from NYC NY

    One has to have an ample bust line To fill out the top of this dress. If not, it's billowy and too big. I wear a 36A bra, so that has something to do with it, but you have to be a lot bigger than that. The fabric and print are beautiful though.
