Rated 5 out of 5 by from most flattering dress I own! This is a beautiful dress and well worth the price. As has been noted it does require a slip, but any beige or brown slip with a low neckline will do. This dress is not too warm to wear inside comfortably and is so soft! The shaping is flattering, especially across the upper arms, and I love the neckline. I am rather muscular, and sometimes have difficulty finding clothes that do not accentuate this, but that's not a problem with this dress. I am a size small at 34 bust, 26 waist, and 37 hip, and am about 5'4" and 130 lb. My dress fits very well and the skirt just covers my knees. I wash it by hand in cool water and dry it flat and it is remaining in perfect condition (I've had it about a year, and worn it frequently!). There isn't anything I would change about this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and Very Flattering I love the soft feel of this dress and the way it fits -- form-fitting in the bodice and looser but still shapely below. Very flattering neckline for me; definitely scooped, but not too revealing, and still warm for winter. Other reviewers have noted that the color description is off -- it's primarily a soft brown with little flecks of blue-grey, not at all a blue dress! Love the color, myself. The dress is comfortable in the extreme, and I really like the lattice pattern of the bodice. I'm slightly less pleased with the drape of the skirt, but it's a minor quibble. I'm 5' 7.5", 127 lbs., small busted and slightly pear shaped. I got the size small, and it is a perfect fit. The skirt hits just at the top of the kneecap. Sleeves are very long (and I have long arms); they seem like they are designed to be turned up into cuffs, which makes for a more casual look. Overall, a wonderful cool weather dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't suit the hour glass figure I was disappointed that this dress didn't suit me. From the photo I expected that it would hang heavy in an empire line from under the bust, but the trellis effect came down to my waist, so the line of drape was quite altered on my hour glass figure. It is soft and cosy and would probably look great on a very slender frame. My mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Dress I love the fit and the forgiving nature of the dress and yarn. I am 5'5", a bit over weight at 150, but this dress hides the extra weight. The style is slimming with the ribs going lengthwise. The color is an unusual heathered brown and very flattering to most complexions. I live between San Diego and Palm Springs, so this dress is perfect for CA cool winter days. I like the no fuss simplicity of the style, yet it is elegant. When I wear this dress, I get lots of compliments. Thank you, PC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Warm & Beautiful! I adore this dress! I love the primarily brown color with slight & light flecks of heather/blue. I love the weight of the fabric. I love the fit! I bought the medium and small to compare fit--and kept the small as it works best as a tunic w/ skinny jeans and boots! I was tempted to keep the medium too which would have worked well as a dress, but did not want to get too carried away. Thank you AGAIN, PC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very wearable I've worn this a lot. I ordered an L but swopped it for an XL. I'm quite broad hipped and needed the extra size. Very cosy and wearable. I wear it with leggings. Have had it dry cleaned and I've also hand washed it twice. Kept its shape beautifully. A few bobbles of wool to pull off but nothing much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent winter dress The cable pattern for the bodice is a nice detail which works particularly well for me as I have a small bust. As mentioned by other reviewers this dress is excellent to keep you warm during the cold season. You might want to add a scarf, a necklace or some other jewelry to add some of color and sparkle as the slate/brown hue is a bit on the understated side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me Great fabric, but too much of it. I'm nearly always a medium and rarely a size small, and ordering from Canada, it's not worth the duty and tax risk to try the smaller size. I'm sure it will be great for many, just not for me.
