Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Easy This has to be one of my favorite under-$100 dress purchases from Peruvian Connection. Love the flowing fit and the Delft blue color. The fabric is a perfect summer weight without being sheer. Appreciate the extra sewing details in the tulip skirt. The dress is super flattering for my tall XS build. Flat sandals or heels both work - I like that flexibility since I can't always take both on trips. The dress hand-washes well, another plus. Hope to see this one next season in new colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great PC Dress! This dress is everything I hoped it would be. Yes, the fabric is thin, but opaque enough to get by without a slip, and a good weight for a summer dress. This is why I only gave 4 stars for quality, otherwise it is well constructed. If it were available in more colors (sold out in black), I would order another. As one review states, easy to dress up for a night out, or with sandals to run errands. The draping is fabulous, it is different from anything I see around town - elegant and flattering. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the tulip hemline The tulip hemline makes this dress unique, my favorite of the season. Yes, the fabric is lightweight, but it is not sheer and is perfect for summer or fall with a cropped sweater. I ordered the Delft color which is lovely. Regarding sizing, I ordered the size X-Small, but I usually order size Small in PC clothing. I'm 5'-8" tall, with measurements 34"-25"-36 1/2". I think for this dress the bodice needs to be fitted to accentuate the shape of the hemline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress! Just what I was looking for: a long, elegant, lightweight dress with interesting, non-fussy details. I'm usually a 4-6 and ordered XS and S. Both fit and look almost the same. I ordered Delft and black and like both. The black seems a bit heavier, looks more expensive, and won't show wrinkles, so it's a winner. The Delft is pretty and versatile, too. The fabric is thin but I think it's opaque enough to wear without a slip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous for summer with minor tailoring flaws I am extremely happy with this dress - the material is a dream for hot summer days - soft as a feather and thin like a breeze. It is very very comfortable. The cut is Bo-chic, can be dressed up or down, good to go to the office as well as for walks in the park or with flip-flops to the grocery. I ordered my usual size M and it fits well, not clingy at all, flattering fit (5'9", 150 lbs). Got the delft color - very pleased - it is like pigeon blue / gray. Received many compliments. The downsides: The fabric underneath the arm-holes point outward like they need to be taken in. Same problem with the neck line (on the back). I could have probably fit in the S just fine but I'm afraid it would be too clingy around my belly / waste. One more thing to be careful about - I've noticed that the material got lints on the side where I carry a purse (purse made of linen fabric). Appeared only after I wore it 2 times. Not visible but I may feel lints by hand. Will have to carry purse in my hand, not on shoulder with this dress. This also reminded me I should probably hand-wash it. Overal: great dress with mentioned tailoring flaws, which I wouldn't expect considering the PC prices and their usual quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fitting Dress This dress is very very comfortable and I'm an apple and it still makes me look good. However, I am concerned about how thin the fabric is and the fabric underneath the arm-holes point outward like they need to be taken in. I got this dress in the raspberry color in an XL, but probably couldn've fit in the L just fine. I would love to get in in the black, which is already sold out. If the fabric were a little thicker I would've give this a 5 star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday summer dress I would never have ordered this dress based on the way it hangs on the model - who must be super thin. I was in the New York store recently and saw this dress. I am a little under 5'4", weigh approximately 163 lbs, have a hourglass shape and generally wear size 12. The raspberry was not available in large so I tried the medium. The medium fit. I tried the large in a different color and it did not hang right - the underarm was too wide and the waist was too low. I think the dress look better on me than on the model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and versatile Great cut, bought every color. 5'8" and 143 lbs, the medium fit like it was made for me. Great everywhere but work. Comfortable, flowing, understated. Great with a jacket and pearls to dress up or flip flops to the grocery. Highly recommend this dress.
