I love this dress - good quality -
By: BaltoRose from Baltimore, MD
I love this dress. The linen is such high quality and has enough of a thickness to it that it is not see though. It is very classic styling and flattering for the summer.
Shorter than I thought -

This dress is good quality linen . It has a bit of weight to it like all the Shoreline garments. It has a seam around at a "dropped waist " level which only looks good if you pick it up with a belt to give a slightly "blouson" effect. Sadly it also makes it very short.. I am only 5ft 2in and it is well above my knee.
Not what I expected -

I second Bobblesbombom on this one. This dress will be returned, unfortunately. The picture depicted exactly what I was looking for but the fit made me look like my Pennsylvania Dutch ancestors. I'll be sticking with dog beds and hunting gear.

Someone with an extremely long torso and short legs might look good in this dress but for a 5'2" person with normal proportions,it is a disaster. Top too big and long, skirt okay except for the top hanging over for the non classic potato sack look. My husband laughed when I tried it on. Going back.
Big mistake -
If I were a foot taller, this dress might have worked. As it is, it was like nothing else I had ever received from Orvis ... oversized in several areas. I actually considered cutting it and making a skirt and jacket ... but then there were the oversized sleeves to redo. The best thing was the skirt ... it fit well and had very nice pockets. Needless to say, it has been returned.
Lovely Dress -
By: sanderra from Nashville, TN
I purchased this dress because I liked the way it looked on the model. Although I'm 5'3" it looks very much like it does in the picture. I didn't notice the little pleats around the neck when I ordered the dress, but I love the extra touch. The linen is an excellent weight and does not require that you wear a slip. This is a perfect dress for moving from the heat outside to heavily air conditioned buildings.
Returned. Not up to your or my standards. Returned promptly.
Not even suitable to garden in -
By: Bobblesbombom from Gloucestershire, UK
Another linen dress that was originally expensive, but again arrived very poorly packed and creased. My husband couldn't believe how awful it was and said I should be working in a hay barn to wear this dress. In the past I have had many great items of clothing from Orvis, but over the last year or so everything I have sent for has gone back, the quality has been dreadful. I can only assume that Orvis has changed its suppliers to ones that are cheap and downmarket.

I bought this dress in your sale. Had I paid full price I would have returned it. I was very disappointed in the fit and will only use it as a cover up over a swim suit
Great dress -

I bought this dress for a trip to Spain and for a following cruise. Perfect! Great fit and beautiful style.
