Seersucker Patio Dress
Love Comfort Dresses
After purchase of several dresses, couldn't be happier with the comfort, cool and crisp style. Fits well and looks great.

Love this, it is comfy and not see through like some. I particularly love the pockets. It does seem to run a little large so will order a med. instead of large next time. I had to remove the tag at the neck because it's scratchy, I wish tags were all on the sides. Not a problem to remove. I will be back for another color.

Nice Lounge Dress
I bought Size Medium in Teal. The color is very pretty. It's made with a good quality seersucker fabric and heavier than I expected. It runs big and shrinks a little from hot wash/dryer, but mine is still big on me. The top of the pockets and the bottom hem roll/fold-over a little. Otherwise, it looks fine without ironing due to its bumpy fabric. I wear it only around the house. I like it a lot and plan to buy one or two more in Size Small when they go on sale. This is a good store; however, their muumuus and lounge dresses often run big. Before you order anything from this store, always call them to ask for the garment dimensions (bust, waist, and hips) to help you order the right size. Their web site gives you only the length and their size chart is not always accurate.

Be aware of shrinkage.
My mom, age 92, wears an M, but I ordered this in a size L because she likes loose-fitting clothes. It shrank after I washed it, but that's okay because it was too large to begin with, and now it will be better-fitting for her. I also had to iron the yoke (the neckline) and the sleeves as they came out wrinkled from the dryer. Otherwise, I think my mom, who lives in a tropical island, will be very cool and comfy in this dress.

Perfect for Summer
I had been thinking about this dress for some time and decided to buy it (and four others) during the free shopping promotional. I was pleased all around--the material, the size, the color (navy)--all exceeded expectations. Most likely I will buy another one for traveling. My only less than positive comment is that I had not seen this item in the usual section for Muumuus--it was tucked away in the dress section--so if you are looking make sure you check both sections
I recommend this patio dress

A WONDERFUL dress
I don't even remember how many of these I've purchased over the years. They are supremely comfortable (after you stitch down the label). I wear mine constantly They wash beautifully and, if you are careful with your dryer, come out perfectly there, too! They are also fantastic night gowns down here in Florida with our hot, humid climate. The patch pockets are a real plus. No feeling around for side seam pockets.

I'm not a 'dress person', but I've worn these seersucker patio dresses around the house for years now. They are so cool and comfortable, and attractive enough to wear outside. They are much cooler than slacks and tee-shirts, and don't bind or get in the way no matter what project I'm tackling. The neckline is modest and doesn't gap open when I lean over. My husband knows how I love these dresses and surprised me with a gift of four different colors for Christmas - I wear them year-round. Please don't ever stop making them!

Perfect Summer Dress
I love this dress! I bought two of them last summer and wore them almost daily - I'd given up dresses long ago in favor of pants or capris but one hot day when I was just steaming in a pair of capris and a knit tee shirt, I thought: I wonder if I could get away with wearing a dress during the summer days, like i used to...which I did, bare legs and summer dresses was all I wore in the summer but I hit 50 + and the summer dresses were all too bare, so I continued to melt in pants and too hot tops. Then I saw this dress and I thought 'why not?" and it was perfect. As I said I wore it a whole lot, bought another, wore that on the other days, and summer felt so much better, after so many years of age-worry and sweltering and spandex laden capris and pants.
SO, I'm here to buy a bunch of these. All colors, because I'm going to be ready when the sun comes out in a few months. And not risk these GREAT dresses being out of stock as they were at the end of last summer.
FINALLY, after my long saga, I should tell you that I found the fabic just fine, better after one wash in cold, and a dry on low, then I hanged to dry, which took a day.
AS FOR SIZING: I usually take a Medium and the Medium in this dress before and after washing fits perfectly. So I would say in my experience, this dress runs true to size.
THIS is a delightful dress and I encourage anyone who's sitting on the fence to buy one or two. I think you'll love them as much as I do, and summer will feel a lot more comfortable as well.
