Rated 3 out of 5 by peach1 An "in-between" go-to...
This is one of those dresses that, to me, runs true or snug on top but a lot of fabric to be truly flattering on the bottom. Perfect for really warm weather as a throw-on with sandals. Too unstructured and wrinkly for anything dressier... but very hard to find lightweigt non-clingy dresses for summer when you're a little older, so I got black and porcini and had my seamstress take them in down the back. My fashion-forward daughters still pronounced pretty "sack-like" but oh, well. They do need ironing as well as a slip underneath--very see through. When the tangerine went deeply on sale got that; I found one washing and drying mellowed the color because it was bright!!!! This one ran a little shorter and snugger than the other two colors (very common I've found w/natural fabrics @ J.Jill and others) so doesn't

Rated 4 out of 5 by cchacha nice dress that didn't fit me!
I liked the style and the fabric, but I've decided that buying a dress on line isn't for me. My body hasn't found the right size/ fit yet. I'll try dresses in a store in the spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eliz57 love the dress
This dress fit perfectly and drapes nicely yet still has body. It will be the perfect dress for spring. I bought the peach color and it is beautiful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by susanj403 Very light linen -- pretty "throw on" dress for the summer
Loved the color. Just was too big. Perfect weight for hot Georgia summers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ana67 Poorely fit
The style is beautiful, but it did not fit right on me. I am 5.4" and 127Lb, I bought the Size small. The arm holes were very big and the bottom of the dress was somewhat tight. It needs pockets. For some reason, it does not function well, when the pockets are missing. The material is very light. The porchini and the tangerine colors are beautiful. The length of the dress is slightly shorter when you compare this with the short linen tank dress. If you have great looking legs, than this will fit nicely on you, The style of this dress has more emphasis on the legs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Apbbear Nice soft material and very casual styling
Very nice material, ordered the bright orange color, which was much brighter than the pictures. It's nicely styled, but just that the design doesn't have a zipper, the dress is much bigger than regular dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hothumidsoutherner Not flattering -- but ok for the price
I bought this on sale and it's fine for around the house after swimming, but it's not really flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaPX beautiful & comfortable
No, it is not as structured as the linen tank dress. But the pleats (on the front AND back) add charm and dress it up. I love it, including the color (tangerine.) I wear it to work with the linen sweater. I am 5'8," 150 lbs, small chest-- the medium is plenty big. Washed perfectly. Yes, ironing necessary.
