Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sargie Mue Requested a cotton dress
The only place I could find a cotton dress was on The Vermont Country Store website. I had looked everywhere for a cotton dress, and they are no where to be found, so when I found one on The Vermont Country Store's website, I was so excited. They only problem is, I am between sizes and didn't fit into the size I thought I should wear. I was so sad to have to send the dress back as it didn't fit.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verdee great dress for pears
I love dresses, but its hard to find ones that work with my small chest and wide hips. I usually wear a small top and medium bottom; I ordered this dress in a small and it skims my body nicely, so I look like the picture (well, except for my grey hair and wrinkles!).
A very well-made dress of quality woven cotton that you don't often find these days. The fabric feels soft and cool on warm days but the weave is tight enough that no slip is needed. I haven't noticed any shrinkage after washing in cold water and drying on low.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TinaB. 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).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MissEllen 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Smalls 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.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by NicoleRey 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.
