Mixed print dress
This dress is very cute and flattering. The skirt is fully lined but it's not heavy. It could be dressed up with heels and a nice shawl or sandals for a simple sunsdress look. The color is nice too. Black and white with a touch of purple piping. Really like this dress.

Adorable dress which fits very well
I am not disappointed that I bought this dress. Although it came in a small box I was surprised that it wasn't wrinkled which makes this an ideal dress for travelling / packing.
The armholes are high enough that they cover a full coverage bra which is nice. The skirt portion is lined which allows the skirt to flow a little more freely. Purple trim is a slim line of grosgrain ribbon which looks quite nice snd is securely sewn on. I plan on wearing this in Miami in Sept with flat sandals but I can see wearing it with black riding boots, tights and a sweaterin the fall as well.
Upper body fit comfortably without being too tight and the skirt flows freely from the empire style waist. Hits me just above the knee and I am 5'8". Fabric looks like it will wash well and hang to dry to help any wrinkles fall out.

Very cute summer dress
Very cute little dress! I am 5'4, 235, 38G/H, curvy and ordered the 14/16 which fits perfectly. The fabric is light weight and feels good. Length is mid knee. From waist down, it is lined with a cream colored non-cling polyester knit fabric which is great. There are 2 thin gathered eleastic strips stitched at the waist which makes it forgiving. Arm holes do not gape or show bra under arms, and the straps pretty much cover my unlined cotton balconette bra straps. Win win! Great with silvery flats and a cardi for work, or just black patent flip flops on a warm weekend.

Must have dress...very versatile and comfortable!
This dress is perfect for summer! Even though it is lined (from the waist down only), it is a very lightweight and comfortable dress. The straps are a little long for me, but overall it still works and wouldn't make the effort to have them shortened. One thing to note is that the way the straps are cut it would require a different kind of bra or else the straps will show. Not a problem for me because I wear it with the short sleeve smocked back open cardigan. Originally I bought the purple one hoping it would match the ribbon trim on the neckline of the dress, but it did not match at all and did not look good. Now I have the green and pink cardigans and they look adorable with the dress! I can see this dress working year round as well. As cute as it looks with sandals, I can't wait to wear it with knee high boots and a jean jacket once the weather cools down!
