Women's Lanz Romance Print Dress
A Feminine, Flattering, Old-Fashioned Dress
This dress reminds me of the dresses of the 1950s. Its simple lines are feminine and flattering, and its medium-weight cotton fabric is easy to care for. I've been washing mine in cold water at the gentle setting and tumbling it dry at the low setting. It looks OK without ironing, though a hot iron would make it look even better. The skirt is actually pleated, with very small pleats, rather than gathered. It's cool enough for comfort in moderate summer temperatures (70s).
Slanted front pockets would be more natural that the side-seam pockets on this dress. (You have to reach back awkwardly to put your hands in the pockets.) And the dress is one size too big (though I ordered according to my bust measurement).

An absolutely beautiful dress made with care and craftsmanship. The colors are much brighter than pictured.

High quality, pretty and feminine
The fabric of this dress is a classic vintage floral. The workmanship is excellent. The seams, pleats and cut as well as the pretty buttons are all excellent. I have had this dress for one year now and still holds up well after washing. The cotton is not flimsy so it has a nice weight and drape to it...not too light or too heavy. The length hits me at mid calf at 5'6 and the waistline is loose but not too loose. The top torso area is cut to be body hugging, but unfortunately after a few washes and drying in the dryer the dress shrunk and it is now too snug across my chest. It feels a bit tight to wear and hope if I loose a few pounds I can wear it again. When I did wear the dress, I did get a lot of compliments and I always felt pretty in it. I was able to dress it up and down, and it kept me cool in the hot summer. If you are normally on the high side of the sizing, I would order a size up to account for the shrinkage of 100% pure cotton.

Roses are Red and the sweater is blue
I purchased this dress as it will do double duty for me, work, and worship. The first time I wore it I paired it with a soft blue crop sweater, the dress has blue in the design, I had other ladies approach me and compliment me on how soft an pretty my dress was. Excellent quality, comfort, and all around pretty dress. Two thumbs way up.

Very light and wearable
This dress is made with very light cotton. A bit softer cotton would give it a 5/5. Very wearable for everyday. Long enough to stand the blustery days with ease. Pretty fabric and buttons. A true staple.

A cool, fresh look
I bought this dress because I love the colors, and I love Lanz of Salzburg garments! It is nice to have a cotton dress for those extra warm summer days here in Texas!It is well made and true to size.

Perfect fit, quality garment with lovely detail. I never wear this dress without receiving compliments. From the
tucking above the hemline to the floral-stamped buttons, everything about this simple style is elegant. It has become my favorite summer dress and can be dressed up with a shawl and/or jewelry to make it fit any occasion.
