Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming dress This dress just arrived and I can't wait to wear it. I agree with the other reviewers about sizing - definitely size down. I am 5'7", 165 pounds and the medium fit perfectly. Keep in mind the dress is designed to fit loosely and that knit stretches. If you have a larger bust and order up to accomodate, you won't need to do that with this dress. The hem fell about 2-3 inches above my knees. I am short-waisted so I chose the thinner braided tassel belt to go with it and it looks great! The alpaca is soft and may feel a bit scratchy but not quite itchy. I found it comfortable and after I had it on a few minutes I didn't even notice it anymore. Can be dressed up or down with casual or dressier boots. I highly recommend this dress!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softest Alpaca This dress is close to cashmere in hand, and feel on your skin. All natural alpaca tones. Lovely and warm, you will want to wear it daily. Looks awesome with high riding boot. I am happy the cut is straight as I have more curves than a totem pole. I want another in cerullian blue and ivory.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too long I wanted to love this dress, but it just wasn't right on me. It runs long and large, and is a bit itchy. The belt shown in the picture really adds a lot, and it might work if you size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from riveting neckline , generous fit I love the yoke on this dress, it looks even prettier than in the photo. The fit of the dress is "classic", which I always have some trouble with - whether to go small or medium when my size is right in the middle. The medium fit me exactly like last year's Martina minidress. It hangs straight down, concealing curves as well as waistline. I put this dress on top of the Martina to compare and the lengths were equal, the only difference in the fit (sleeves aside) is that this one is several inches wider at the hemline. The knit is light and airy, so if it was worn as small as the model in the photo, a slip would be necessary underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Sweater Dress! I just love the look and feel of this dress. The material is light yet very warm and perfect for this Fall...Looks great with black or brown tall boots!! my only complaint is that the dress is a bit longer than I expected...I am 5'9" and the hem hits right at the knee...I expected it to hit right above the knee...All in all, great quality and highly recommended...
