Floral Print Rayon Dress
Exceptionally pretty dress!
What a pretty dress, even prettier than in the photos! I purchased the mint green and it is lovely. The floral pattern is delicate and quite unique. The dress appears to be true-to-size and fits perfectly. The shell buttons look somewhat fragile and I've learned from experience that this type of button can break, but two "spares" were included with the dress so I am not concerned. Also, the dress can be pulled on and off over the head without the need of unbuttoning, so that will reduce wear-and-tear on the delicate shell buttons.
The only reason I gave this dress 4 stars instead of 5 is because the fabric is fairly sheer. As another reviewer mentioned, you do have to wear a slip under this dress or people will be seeing more than you intended them to see. Fortunately, I already had a half-slip in almost exactly the same mint color that works perfectly under the dress, and if it peeks out while I am sitting, people will think it is a sewn in lining of the dress.
I highly recommend this dress. You most likely will not be disappointed! I am tempted to buy another in a different color!

Love This Dress!
I ordered this dress to wear to a High Tea. When it arrived, it looked exactly as it was pictured on your online shopping website. The pastel yellow color of the dress and the pink flower print are beautiful. It fits perfectly, and will be just the right dress for this event! I am looking forward to wearing it many times through the Spring and Summer when I go out.

Great dress for any occasion
This is one of my favorite dresses for the summer. It is a very thin material, so you must wear a slip with it. The Batiste Full Slip in tall length is a perfect fit with these longer dresses that I bought from Vermont Country store. I wear this to work with pearls around my neck and a tan mule heels to dress it up. I think it is the perfect dress for work. It is comfortable, very cute, conservative yet kind of a vintage look that I like a lot. When I first wore this to work, I received more compliments then I had ever received when I wore very expensive suits. I loved this dress so much, I came back and bought the pink and blue one also. They all look good with pearls around the neck and tan mule heels or tan ballerina flats. I like that this dress is made of a rayon material. It is nice that it is thin also, so it does not add on extra weight to you and at the same time very comfortable in hot weather.

Soft and Cool!
I purchased this in the pink and just love it. I bought the size medium and it fits perfectly. I usually wear a small but I wanted the extra room to wear the Victorian PJ I also bought here, and cotton gowns under it. Love the extra room around the waist. There is a string in the back to cinch the waist but it also is nice just hanging loose.The order ladies online helped me with every question I had. I have worn this now several times and when I wash it on gentle I always hang it to dry. I have had no problems with wrinkles etc. The color is as pictured for the pink. I plan on wearing this dress far into the fall season.

Summer ease, summer beauty
Put on this dress with a straw hat, and you'll feel like strolling in the garden with a mint julep in your hand, telling your husband "Ah b'leeve ah'l have a magnolia there..." ;-) Or you could just bite the everyday bullet, but feel better about getting the groceries because everyone will want to know where you got this lovely-looking flower of a dress. The fabric flows over the body, has lovely "hand," and the pastel print is almost archetypally feminine. I love the dress, and wish it came in violet, pale blue, pale green...but I suppose I'll just have to sigh, and file that with my mint julep dream. Vermont Country Store gets an A+ again: and I'm a hard grader!

I am wearing this dress in the pink choice right now. It is a very warm day and this is very cool and comfortable. The fit is perfect. I love the delicate dogwood print. I feel this dress would be appropriate to wear anywhere. Decent dresses that can be worn casually are getting more and more difficult to find. Thanks VCS for continuing to carry a nice selection.
