Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Design Style! I already have this dress in white which I love. Decided the blue would also be a winner in my wardrobe. The only complaint I have and why the 4 star rating is that I feel the dress is not cut on the straight of the fabric. Perhaps this is meant to be but it seemed a bit weird. Since I doubt it is very noticeable to others I'm keeping and planning to get much wear come spring, summer and warmer weather! For reference - I'm 5'3" and weigh 91 lbs. I ordered size xs. I think it will look great with a belt and of course jewelry! All of my purchases from PC come wrapped like a gift to me! Love this about Peruvian Connection!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I bought the dress in black which was a bit too gloomy for me. I am 5'6" and got the XS because I am small boned and thin but the shoulders were too narrow and the body of the dress was a little too loose, I think I must have been sent a sample because the sleeves were quite long as was the dress, even belted, the whole dress was just too morose, maybe good for a funeral.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. Fabulous quality. As other reviews have stated, go down a size. I bought the black for myself and the white for my daughter. I wear mine with a heavy brown belt on the hips and lots of jewellery. The style is very classy and flattering and the fabric is very comfortable and substantial enough for me to go without a slip underneath. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! Great dress, wonderful fabric, and perfect fit in XS. I'm 5'4" and 115 lbs, athletic. I ordered it in black and can dress it up or down. Pairs well with different styles of belts, shoes, or sweaters/jackets, to produce different looks, and it laundered well with no issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Size down and style with a belt I'm a solid medium 5'8" 140lb, but in this dress needed to size down. Must style with a belt, unless planning to use for sleepwear. Sheer, needs slip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me look tall and thin Believe it or not, I actually bought this dress to wear in Essaouira! It will be perfect for the beach, cafes, or around the pool. I am 5'4" and weigh 125 and the small fits perfectly. It is beautifully made and is of high quality material. I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mighty not dress Bought this to wear to a wedding, but the white version is more like a nightly than a dress. The black version might be more usable. Would be nice in a little heavier fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this dress. I have a white one and am now going to get a black one. A little expensive for what it is, but so comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like a night gown This dress is very comfortable, but the material is thin and overall it looks more like a night gown than a dress. . I am 5:9" and weigh 150. The medium is a bit more snug than I would like,, but I know the large would be too big. Keeping it as a bathing suit cover up, but would now wear as a dress. Unless you have a very slim waist I wouldn't wear it belted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and well-made I'd like to live in the region where this is a summer dress but I bought it for travel and will wear it in fall here in Texas! I bought the black and it was not too sheer at all. It is very comfortable and flattering. Looks great with a fun belt. I am 5' 8" and 135 lbs and the medium fit perfectly just like the photo. I think it will also look good with boots and a cardigan this winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress, but size down I received this dress and eagerly tried it on. I am usually a PC size medium/12 so this was what I ordered. It is at least one or maybe even two sizes too big. Pulled in behind me and with a slim belt it looks really good, but oh dear! When the dress is simply allowed to hang it looks like an ill-fitting nightshirt. I will change it for a smaller size because it will then be really useful, but be warned, it comes up very big.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but sheer I ordered this in white and it is soft and was a comfortable fit. However, it was too transparent for me so returned it. I am sure the black is not as transparent and if you want this for a bathing suit cover-up it would be perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality fabric The style looked appealing and I ordered it but the fabric was thin and non-substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely useful spring dress Really pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit of this lovely maxi dress. At 5'2" this just reaches my ankles, so will be shorter on a taller person. I ordered the XS and at 8 stone 4 lbs it is a pretty perfect fit, so would say true to size. The cut is skimming rather than overly fitted and very classy - has a an italian clothing feel to it. Fabric a reasonable weight and just ideal for British spring weather. Also great for holiday evenings with a bit of arm coverage! Looking forward so much to wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Sophistication I bought this in both black and white and am confident that I'll get a lot of wear out of both. The simple lines of this dress make it the perfect canvas for a bracelet, necklace or belt. It also layers nicely under some of my PC knit kimonos and cardigans. I had to laugh when I read the review about the white looking like a nightshirt. My first thought when I pulled the white dress out of the box: if I don't' accessorize this it will look like a nightgown. Either the black or white would make a great swimsuit cover. But I like them too much to get sand all over them. These will be my go-to spring and summer dresses. They are perfect for travel. I am 5'7" and some change. I have broad shoulders. I bought the medium and it fits perfectly. It looks sleek and feels comfy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous in Black I totally agree with everything that the reviewer right before me said, except I bought the dress in black. The design reminds me of a very long tunic or a straight caftan, and the neckline adds to that impression. Great cotton fabric with no clinginess. The black is not drab. I already see it worn with many strands of large beads - turquoise, coral, amber - for a classic Iris Apfel look! Strappy or gladiator wedge/flat sandals and a big hat - and you can go anywhere. I took my usual Medium (36-38C;size 8 dress/shirt; size 6 pants) and it fits perfectly. Now I may have to get the white one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essaouria dress summer favorite This dress will either be my favorite, go to dress this spring or the most expensive night shirt I've ever purchased. Lovely, soft, and lightweight slubby white cotton knit, skims the body, loves accessories but looks simply elegant by itself. I was afraid it might be too sheer as white dresses can be that way, but the slub texture breaks up the sheerness of the fabric. I'm 5'4 and about 160lb so a bit curvy. The size Large fit perfectly, skimming and flattering without clinging. A bit of ethnic or silver jewelry, a pair of simple sandles, and I'm ready to go.
