Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a keeper... After reading the reviews before ordering this dress, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. The fabric is thin as I expected it to be, but is a tight, textured weave and somewhat heavy weight, so it drapes well. It was made in China, but upon close inspection was made well. A hidden back zipper and lining in the skirt portion would have made it even nicer. (The upper bodice is lined.) I will be having this dress altered as I do everything that comes from PC. I'm a size 10 dress and for this dress to look good it has to be form fitting in the upper body, which (on me) it isn't enough. I'll also have the straps shortened. I think that for the sale price this was a good purchase because the design is so unique. I would not have paid full price for it. Enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from needs some tailoring Contrary to another reviewer's perception, the color of the fabric of this dress looks to me exactly as portrayed in the catalogue and website photo; my quibble would be that the fabric content makes for a wrinkled MESS that will keep me ironing! I was surprised at the exposed and unfinished zipper in the back--not what I come to expect from PC. The sizing was true in the bodice but the straps need repositioning and shortening in order to make the dress bra strap-friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite what I expected, but still very nice I had a hard time deciding what the color scheme of the dress was based on the photo. Turns out the dark accents (top stitch, buttons) are brown, not black. Thus the overall color scheme is more of a dusty blue/steel gray/chocolate brown. The style and cut of the dress are flattering and it fit me nicely (I'm a fairly true size 8, which is what I ordered). I had been hoping for something more in the black/white/gray family but this color combo still looks quite nice. Only debate I had with myself is whether it is worth the price. However, the tailored look is very unique and timeless, so I decided it would make a good addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for summer The concept is brilliant: using a menswear pattern for a dress that is so undeniably feminine! The waist is slightly dropped, then the skirt coquettishly flares out into a perfectly charming silhouette.
