Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy that I purchased this dress... finally! I have been admiring this dress for many months and decided that I should just go ahead and buy it. I am so glad that I did. This dress is gorgeous, and definitely a head turner. I received so many compliments on it the first time that I wore it after receiving it last week. It is unique, and just plain fun. As far as the toggle latch for the wrap not "staying put", you just have to run the toggle through twice - then it won't budge at all. I am 5'4", 114 lbs, and a 34B, and the 2 fits great (with extra room - as it isn't a super fitted styled) - roomy, but still body skimming. Great with tall boots (black or brown would work). I would have no reservations recommending this dress to others. I expect to be wearing it for many years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me This is a cute dress. Love the fabric and the color. However, I am only 5'4"and found it to be a bit too long for me. Also the funny faux wrap hit me wrong and just looked odd on me. I it has potential for the right build. I am also curvy and it did fit both bust and backside nicely. But I would need to be taller to pull it off. I'm going to try the fabric again and am ordering the cute top this time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have Wore this dress for an out of town wedding. It was perfect. First, it is one of the most comfortable dresses I own. I was alittle hesitant due to the price but it is worth it, just for the ease of it all. It is wrinkled and looks best like that. The front panel was coming undone but if you twist it a certain way it stays on. The neckline is gorgeous and the bra strap snaps was perfect. Can't wait to wear it this winter. If you have been eyeing this dress don't wait you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from terrific dress This dress fit perfectly, is smart and stylish and modern, even for me and I am 71 years old. It is long enough not to be awkward, as so many are. The only slight drawback is that the button that holds the skirt over does not hold.... a quick stitch took care of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only OK There wasn't anything overly wrong with the dress. It just didn't wow me and for this price that's a must. As others have said, the fabric is thin which is not necessarily a problem, except, again, at this price I expect more. I also found that it runs big. According to the size chart, I am exactly a size 6 but I really needed a size 4. Also, it's a little short waisted for tall women. I am 5'10" and for it to be perfect for me, the dip in for the waist was about 2 inches too high. This is dress would fit an average height woman with no problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizng not true I was really disappointed that this dress did not fit. I had my reservations about the fabric but was prepaired to accept this if the dress looked good on. Sadly it was described as a 16 but was not. I am a 14/16 but usually buy a 16 and alter fit if necessary as I am quite broad shouldered. This was far too small and was barely a 14. Shame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical! Every so often a dress comes along that is more than just pretty -- it has a certain magic about it. This is one of those. It is so lovely and unique, with an arty, edgy quality, yet extremely wearable and flattering -- I am absolutely thrilled! I love the shape, which is form-fitting but not tight, and the drapey, wide collar, which is extremely becoming. The dress is sexy without trying too hard, and I will wear it to work as well as to parties and on dates. Others have complained that the fabric is thin and unlined, but this means that it can be drapey without being bulky -- and also that it will work all year 'round. I love the slightly faded, washed-out red and the somewhat crinkly texture. A couple of stitches will keep the draped part of the skirt in place. I have two tests for a new item of clothing: do I feel I can't wait to wear it, and would I be happy to run into my ex-husband or an old boyfriend while wearing it? This dress passes both tests with flying colors. Fabulous!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soooo disappointing. Having seen this style last year I was excited it appeared in this autumn's catalogue again. However, I was more than disappointed by almost everything about this dress. The style is glorious and amazingly flattering - if it fitted. I am only 5'3" so had imagined that as the dress reached the model's knee in the catalogue, it would be a bit on the long side for me. Nothing could have been further from the truth, as it hovered a good 2" above my knee. Yet the length from nape to waist was what would be expected for a 5'6" model i.e. too long for me. So I had a dress that was too long in the back, yet too short in skirt length. Added to these faults is the poor quality, shoddy material which meant that this beautiful design which had promised so much, actually delivered very little.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from scottish dress a winner Love the contemporary style. Hook does come undone too easily. Need to use the bra strap loops, glad they came with the dress. True to size. Lots of compliments. Front not too low but might be for some. For the price I would have expected a lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress I wore this dress for the first time today and have had nothing but compliments. You do have to pin the neckline for work because otherwise it's a bit risque. I pinned it asymetrically with a black cameo at the shoulder and it looks great. It gives off a "Vivienne Westwood" vibe and it looks edgy. I'm 52 and even I can wear this dress well. A really great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it!!! I really do love this dress. It is a perfect fit for me and its figure flattering. The fabric is a little more lightweight than I thought it would be but its still a great dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress Its sewn so good to make it fit custom . looks just like picture not smooth kind of krinkly . I'm busty I ordered a size 14 I'm 5'6" weigh about 147 lbs the length is perfect . Its low neck but I'm not showing anything . The clasp for the drape across the waste is hard to make stay closed but I managed to twist it in such a way its holding so far. Haven't warn it yet. But I can't wait to ware it . hope this helps . I'm sixty five years and it looks appropriate for my age .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It walks the walk and talks the talk I saw this dress last Autumn but it disappeared very quickly. I did make note of the reviews but like so many of these things its best to reserve judgement. SO .... it appeared this Autumn and I snapped it up, first of all I love the design, its different from the usual with an uneven wrap front, instantly gives it a swagger. I love the toggle, no problems with that either, and it goes in at the waist and has a lovely neckline too, for the larger bust its just perfect. Other reviewers have mentioned that the fabric seems cheap. I can see from the style of the dress that the cotton was going to have to be of a looser weave to get it to drape at the neck and be light enough to be clasped with a toggle and that is just all part of the design, and is warm eough for autumn and winter. The only negative thing is that it is quite pricey. I can't say I would recommend to a friend because I wouldn't want them wearing it too :-D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found I was a bigger size than I thought. Your insert on sizes helped a lot. I have only tried the dress on. It looks great! I haven't worn it to work since I am waiting for colder weather. But it looks beautiful on!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Hoped For Love this dress. I was hoping it would look as great as the picture suggested and it does. It manages to look fitted while still being very comfortable. The dress is unique - a shot of freshness in my autumn wardrobe. Very much looking forward to wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty dress I have had my eye on this dress since last season.I finally ordered it and the other reviewers are correct.It is very well made,it hugs every curve and it is so unique.I did not keep it however, because it just did not suit my personal style and the business dinner that I need it for.The low neckline is mostly what bothered me,I just don't have anything to show off!PC did a great job with shipping and returns.Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice dress This dress runs a bit small, I am a size 6 and it is tighter than usual. I am still losing weight so I will keep the dress as motivation. For the money I am a bit disappointed in the quality, it is nice but for the price I expected more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful - but not for the office This is a beautiful dress - quite flattering on those with a bustline. I am a redhead with an "autumn" palate - and the colors are pretty. The bodice fits wide on the shoulders and low and so a bit sexy for a professional setting. In addition the front skirt wrap is fastened in a toggle fashion - so comes undone fairly easily. I wear a size 4/6 and am busty and ordered a size 6 which fits well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My perfect dress Being 5' 2" I was so pleased that the length of the dress was perfect for me - just on the knee, although the front wrap-round is a bit too long, and I will adjust that. I love the fabric which is lighter-weight than I imagined for a tartan, and for me is perfect as not heavy or too warm. It will be perfect in October when I'm going to a small, country wedding.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Peruvian's size chart I was really looking forward this beautirul dress, but unfortunately it didn't fit me at all, too big. Besides, the colour of this dress is darker than the photos'. So I had returned it. I think the numbers of your size chart are smaller than the actual size. As for quality and value, both of them are good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very dissappointed Stunning Style, but made in the wrong material. Material felt light flimsy and cheap. Certainly not the type of quality I would expect from PC. Also the hook on the front was too heavy for the material and keep coming undone. So sent it back, shame as the style and cut of the dress was just amazing, but it demanded a much better type of fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I own it Last late Autumn / early Winter, I tried to order this dress only to learn that PC was sold out because I waited too long. When I saw that it was back in stock, I jumped right on it. I just received it today and I absolutely love it! The plaid is fabulous and the draping in the front makes me smile. The hook makes this dress super cute. This is classic dress that I'll get lots of use throughout the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow what a dress I am not rich but sew and know top notch quality when I see it. This company is among the very best in quality. The price is often too high at least for me. But when I showed this to my husband he said "You're keeping it - don't care what the cost is." I think that's a great description of this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Flattering I too experienced the August 2011 backorder and rec'd the item Jan.-Feb. 2012. I feel it was worth the wait & the eventual size exchange, which PC made very easy for me--Many thanks. Originally, I ordered the 6 based on the size chart being a 34B lady and it felt roomy/drapey on me--too big. So I took a chance and ordered the 4--Wow, perfect fit..zipped right up--fit like on the model--so it's a keeper. Colors are true as shown, it is unlined, so I had bought the black full slip from here and that worked perfectly..I wouldn't call the fabric wrinkled--I call it nicely crinkled that adds greatly to the character of the garment and yes, at times the loop thing unhooks when I get up from sitting, so I do check that each time as I stand. Thank you PC for makeing the exchange easy because I could not be happier with this dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Looker I love this dress. Yes, the fabric is rather thin. And yes, the toggle on the skirt wrap tends to slip out of the loop. But it looks stunning. As for the rather low waterfall neckline: I'm using a nice viking motive broche to hold it in place and pin it to my underwear on one side which adds another layer of asymetric draping. Was very disappointed with the delivery time of 5 months - ordered in September and received it in February.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Wait! I ordered this dress and matching jacket in September, but didn't receive it til January! Still, it was worth the wait. Thank you, Peruvian Connection, for making more of these dresses and not leaving me with an expensive leather jacket that didn't go with anything else in my closet! As for the dress itself, the fit and the placement of the draping on bodice and hips is extremely flattering. I know you were updating a kilt, but if you ever wanted to make this pattern in other fabrics, I would buy it. It's that good! I only gave 4 stars for quality because the fabric is a little thin, but otherwise everything is first-rate!
