A Dress for All Occassions!Needed a summer looking dress for a wedding and WOW, I found this good looking one! I love how it fits on me for a 71 year old and only being 5', I was worried about the length. I feel like a queen.

Easy care, attractive dress.The dress is attractive, comfortable and easy to care for. It also dries fairly quickly on a hanger if you prefer that. Seems to be very wrinkle resistant, so it would be good for travel. The dress has a slimming effect too, and could be dressed up even more with the right summer sweater or "shrug." Great "every day" dress! With summer coming, ladies in my part of the country appreciate a nice blend of comfort and style.

Pretty Dress from
Beautiful dress but for a different body type than mineI really wanted to love this dress and had hoped it would be perfect. For other people, it may be. The quality seems very good, as has been the quality of almost everything I've ever purchased from Vermont Country Store. But I think the dress would be better for someone who is less curvy than I am.
The fabric is quite a bit heavier than what I expected which I actually consider a good thing. The weight of the dress surprised me and I think the sturdy quality of the fabric is one reason it went from being squashed in a little plastic bag to wrinkle free right out of the bag. It would be a great travel dress for that reason.
However, the fabric is also very stretchy which is why the dress sadly does not work for me. The intentional cut of the dress hugs your midriff with the stretchy fabric, thus accenting the curves of your chest and hips above and below. I prefer a cut that skims the midriff more loosely, creating a smoother flow between chest, midriff, and hips, with a less abrupt difference of appearance between the three body sections. This dress's cut instead accents the size difference between chest, midriff, and hips. The resulting effect on a short 5'3" curvy person is choppy and dumpy rather than sleek and lengthening to the eye.
The fabric is lovely and high quality. If you are built with less curviness than I am or if you like to accent those curves, you may love this dress. If they ever use the same fabric on a redesigned cut, I would purchase again and give it another try.
I think the sizing was right-on so I would recommend ordering your usual size.
