Rated 5 out of 5 by AliceLiddell Fantastic Winter Dress at a Fantastic Price
I love this dress so much. It's very heavyweight, giving it great body and drape. The persian blue color is stunning. It is amazingly soft and comfortable, easy to dress up or down for work or casual wear. Simple shape but very flattering on my lumpy, plus size body. Doesn't cling like many sweater dresses do, which is a huge plus. Just picked it up on sale, and it's almost July, so it will sit in my closet until the fall, but I cannot wait to wear this -- I know I will wear it often!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sukie1 True to size. Simple, casual dresses like this. Make more! ... I'll buy them!
I bought this flattering, simple, comfortable, flaw-skimming, warm winter dress in black to wear with black tights and boots or flats. I'm 5'5" 133 and I usually take S and sometimes XS. I didn't want this dress to be quite so loose or to cover my knees, so I tried SP. It appears to curve in ever so slightly at the waist and is very forgiving of any extra "trunk junk". The sleeves are not as long as they would be if they were my usual Misses S, but I habitually push my sleeves up anyway. The SP fits perfectly (2" above knee) so I went back for the dark green version. (Must try to resist grabbing that blue one too!!!!) No scratchiness noted. There is a vertical seam down the back which is a nice touch. In short, I can wear it anywhere. I don't find many winter dresses that can do it all like this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by westycj Did not fit well
I found that the dress was very heavy and stiff as well as too large in the bust for me. I wasn't happy with it and returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandcastles Just what I was looking for
Dress fits to a tee. I am 5-1 115 lbs x sm petite fits great. Have not worn it yet... Can't wait to. Easy to dress up or down and plan to wear with boots.
Very well made and warm . Buy it you will be pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AKMidwest Great dress, but inconsistent sizing
After seeing the measurements of the dress length & reading other reviews, I decided to go with a petite even though I'm 5'6". Got the gray in MP, and the fit is perfect -- the dress hits just above the knees and fits perfectly everywhere else. Decided to get the black as well in MP, but the black dress is easily 3 inches longer than the gray in the same size. The black one also feels just a tad larger overall, which is disappointing. I may send it back, or I may just get it tailored. It's really warm and versatile and is a great addition to the wardrobe for fall & winter; looks great with black or gray leggings and a variety of footwear & accessories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by loveniceclothes Lovely color but weird back seam
I bought the pine in a 1X. The sleeves are a tad long and the fit is loose on me which is OK. It's sort of a heavyweight, warm knit. I love the color. The main problem is the back seam is sewn inside out for some reason. ??? This makes it definitely a casual dress. I find it especially useful to slip on over gym clothes on the way to the gym on a cold day, or days where you want to be warm--wear over leggings--and don't need it to look dressy.

The dress fits so well and does not cling and also holds its shape well even when traveling a distance by car or plane. The knit is thick and perfect for winter attire. The length falls at the knee and works well with leggings and boots for cold days.
