Rated 3 out of 5 by from No gold hues! I tried this dress on last year in the London shop and loved it. I seem to remember it was thicker and with gold hues but the dress that I have just received is very thin fabric and no gold hues just camel colour. If you look carefully at the print you can see where the gold should be. Is this a print copy of the original? The style and overall colour of this dress is lovely so I will keep it but like the previous reviews I agree it is a lot of money for the fabric and poor print quality. At 5’3” I will need to take it up for day wear. I ordered a S but could have fitted into XS but due to the thinness of the fabric I need to add layers underneath for winter so will keep the S. Such a shame PC that you don’t keep an eye on remakes. Difficult to say if I would recommend this to a friend as it is a lovely style and colour but missing fabric weight and gold hues as described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite dress ever This dress is even more beautiful in life! The colors and textures are absolutely beautiful. The way the dress hangs on me is very flattering. I have developed a tummy over the years and this dress does not draw attention to it. I am short, 5'1" so I did have to have it shortened but that is to be expected! Oh, how I wish I could get this dress in many colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fall to Spring dress. I’ve had my eye on this dress for months and finally took the plunge. I love it. It’s flowy, works great with boots, booties, or slippers. I have a ton of accessories that look great with it, including gloves as shown in the picture. It’s light weight, but easy to wear layers under, for colder days. The only way it could be better is if they added pockets. The color and pattern are very rich looking. Received many compliments when I wore it to the office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted! The Windsor dress is lovely.... Had to exchange a large for a medium since the large was too large for me, but the medium fits so wel and is quite flattering. Looking forward to many years of wear, as your clothing has always been of enduring quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Peruvian's usual quality Going back. Fabric is very thin, has stamped on print and is not hemmed-just whipstiched/surged bottom. Not the usual PC quality that I have enjoyed in past. First item of the 100+ purchased over the years that will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Fit and the Feel of This Dress! When I saw this dress, my first thought was "I've always wanted a dress like that". I ordered it a couple weeks later, and it took over a month to get here, but WOW! was it ever worth waiting for! This dress is simply gorgeous! I am happy I ordered the Medium, and not the large as I sometimes do because I am somewhat busty and do not like a tight fit across the bust. The Medium fits perfectly (I'm 5'5" and 150 lbs - 58 years old). I just got it yesterday and can hardly wait to wear it to a special occasion this weekend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress Summer Weight Fabric Well, my order was backordered for a long long time. The print is breathtakingly beautiful. I couldn't love it more, but it is shockingly thin fabric. It simply is not a winter dress. I have worn it once and wore booties and socks and my legs felt like I had air conditioning on them all day. That is not the case with other winter dresses or skirts I own. I kept running my fingers over the cloth, feeling it, in disbelief at the thinness of the fabric, but it is beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uniquely Beautiful and Elegant The Windsor dress is more beautiful in person than it is in the photo (if that's possible). It has a roomy, smooth fit that glides over the figure on the upper body and releases into a dramatic, full skirt on the bottom. The colors are rich and regal. My only caution is that it is very long and may not be suitable for a shorter lady. I am 5'8" tall and this dress comes right down to my feet in a true maxi length. Taller ladies can carry it off, but a shorter lady may need to bypass this style or have it taken up. If you love the unique beauty and elegance of this dress, it would be worth the slight alteration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich fabric coloring and slimming cut Loved the dress right out of the box! Even better when I put it on. It’s lines are slimming and the soft fabric moves beautifully. Great value, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great free flowing and easy fullness for walking and running. The color is a great transition from late winter to spring and early summer. The color is good for any skin color not too dark but wonderful for each season of the year

Rated 3 out of 5 by from rennaissance princess- almost I just received this dress that I was hoping to have for Christmas. Seems like PC never has things in any rate the dress in it's cut and motif is lovely. I really feel like a renaissance princes in it, well almost, that is if the fabric were heavier than a nylon stocking. The thing that would have made this dress what it SHOULD have been is a decent weight material! This is so obviously a winter dress and yet PC makes it so that the material is the weight for a 95 degree summer day! I truly feel cold in it when I just tried it on in my 70 degree house. How do I wear it out somewhere without long underwear? If I had to wear this in an Midwest or East coast winter I would die from hypothermia! Shame, shame on PC for continuing to cheep out as opposed offering the first quality fabrics that it did 25 plus years. ago. I will keep this dress ONLY because I can just barely get away with it here in California- I love the style of the dress that much. I will say that the cut on this in great. It is very forgiving. I have gained a few pounds on my lower half with age, but if I go to a large I then have to have it altered in the bodice. I was able to order a medium and yet the lower half of the dress is full and flowing so it forgives imperfections in hips and thighs- I really appreciate that. But unless PC changes it's policy of offering its beautifully styled dresses in the most dirt cheep thin fabric, Sadly I am afraid this is going to be my last purchase. because I am feeling like a sucker too often after my purchases. Someone high up at PC knows they have a uniquely styled product line that those of us who don't follow the crowd jump at the chance to wear, and they obviously think they can get away with offering style alone with no substance. Maybe they can, but not anymore with this customer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average dress This dress looks better on the photo then in reality. The colors are not as bright as shown here, they are sort of more faded. Very thin material, it feels cheap and it doesn't feel like a quality item. Quality needs to be much better for the price charged. It would be OK to get this dress at a discount price, but I feel it is not worth the full price. The style looks good on me though. I am not buying a full price item from this store again, the price/quality combination is inadequate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More of this style/shape please This lovely dress is comfortable to wear while looking stylish. The catalogue photos don't do justice to its dark red and gold colours that are more stunning than shown. The fitted bodice falls into folds from a high waist so it is quite different from the usual more fitted styles. The skirt is long enough to "swish" elegantly. I hope PC will make other colours in this style. I would be certain to buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gorgeous color for winter The color and the pattern of this dress is simply gorgeous despite its thin fabric for winter. The draping of the skirt is beautiful and it is very comfortable to wear. The neckline is not so flattering though (I prefer more opening). The description states it is "semi-fit," but for some reason it looks loose on me and a bit frumpy... My usual PC size is S and I am 5'6" and 120. I ordered size Small. I am debating if I keep it or exchange it with XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well tailored I rarely get a dress to fit so well right out of the box. I bought size S (I am 125 lbs, 5'3") The only problem was that it needed to be shortened by 2 inches. Otherwise a stylish and comfortable dress. The fabric is thin, but that is not a problem for me. I am happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Artistically Designed The combination of the elegant design, the drape of the fabric (light jersey knit)--which gives it its drape and flow, and the exquisite print make this a beautiful dress that can be dressed up or down. I wan't sure the jersey knit would be formal enough, but the print is sophisticated in that the subtle mottling of the shades give the appearance of a heavier, textured fabric. The dress is both elegant and comfortable. I'm actually using this as an untraditional mother-of-the-groom dress, in combination with a cream pashmina shawl and string of pearls. So happy to have found this dress! I'm 5'4", 130 lbs, and size Small was the best fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just OK This dress is so cute on the model, however I found it to be very thin material that feels cheap, not at all a substantial fabric for a fall/winter dress, just a rather flimsy cotton jersey. I do like the colors, which are true to the photo. The style feels a bit frumpy on me too, not much elegance to it. I ordered a medium which fit fine, I am 5’10 145 lbs, wear a size 8. I wish it were slightly longer but looks ok with boots. I will keep it and wear with a scarf to dress it up, otherwise it is kind of blah for me. Wanted more oomph for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! That's what it is. I love this dress! Flattering, nice weight material, beautiful color, classy, elegant. I will get a lot of wear out of this dress. Will work nicely for a luncheon with flat boots, and then go elegantly into the evening with however you would like to dress it up. Perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pity This dress is lovely. The pattern is subtle and sophisticated. It’s light weight and if I had kept the dress it would have been a rather short season. Spring and early autumn only. The big problem was the fitting. I am 5’8”, 140 pounds and the large was huge and the medium too tight around hips and bodice. I returned both. Too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress This dress is a real winner. The fabric is lovely and the fit is perfect. My husband loves it too. It is good with flats, heels or boots-depending on your mood. Quite a romantic feel about it. The colors are true to the picture, though I purchased it at a store. I do hope they will do this dress in another glorious pattern in the future-like tomorrow?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Dress I love this dress! Beautiful material, elegant drape and comfortable as well. Looks great with heels or boots. Superb quality, classy style. I expect nothing less from Peruvian Connection. Never disappoints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Dress! I really like this dress. It is a bit dressier than I expected, but that is O.K. The dress fits well - not too tight in my normal size Small. It also flows beautifully. The pattern is the same as the Annaliese dress only in different colors. With a blazer it could be worn in a professional setting, but it really is more of a romantic style. I have a lovely reddish cardigan that looks very nice with it. Thank you Peruvian Connection for another winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renaissance Princess I tried this dress on at the Peruvian Connection store on the Kings Road in London and fell in love with it. As some others have written, it's a dress that makes you want to twirl, and when I modeled it for the sales people they told me I look like a Renaissance Princess! It's beautiful! The red and gold make it perfect for the holidays, and the pattern and silhouette will make you feel like a Renaissance Princess too. Ordered it online so it would be waiting for me in the states when I returned. I tried the small and the extra small on in London and the extra small was a much better fit in the bodice and waist for me. I am 5' 7", 119/122 pounds, 34C bra, 24- 25 inch waist, 35 inch hips. The dress is very comfortable, though the arms are very, very fitted, the entire length of the sleeve to the wrist.
