Fiona Silk Shirt-Dress

Item #B30979
Was: £0.00
Now: £0.00
Rated 5 out of 5 by from casual to elegant I've had my eye on this for months but I don't often wear long dresses and the price was too high for minimal usage. Could not resist the sale price though- I love a nice silk dress. FIT: I am 5'4" and the length was perfect. I am also broad shouldered/large busted and my normal 8 was too tight in those areas. I have exchanged for a 10 and have hopes that it will work. I am short waisted and I think the waist length was good on me but given the tightness issue hard to say. QUALITY: Love- didn't like the idea of a polyester lining but it is very soft and smooth and may be optional. I love the pockets, the placket, the soft silk fabric. I thought i would look like a crow in this but not so. As the other reviewer noted it is loose in the hips perhaps making it ideal for pear shapes?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointing No amount of ironing can fix this dress. The main problem though is the sleeves are quite narrow. OK is you have skinny arms, I guess. Very difficult to put on unless you detach the slip from the dress and unbutton it all the way down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality The dress is a little bit shapeless (maybe I should have ordered one size smaller) but the quality is beautiful. The color is very close to black, and the slip is attached by straps inside the dress. The important thing with this dress is to accessorize, since it is very plain and dark. It looks great with high-quality leather boots. The dress is very expensive, but I will keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic shirt dress Last year i sent a request to PC for a classic shirt dress in the "PC tradition" and with their amazing style/fit. I am excited that it is really here! I could imagine a variety of shirt dress styles that i would still like to see, including a flowing version (not too full; just not straight) and also a lighter color--for the spring/summer next year? Back to the midnight Fiona shirt dress: PROS:the fit is superb, i do like the length and again could see this exact dress in a shorter version in lighter colors for another season. CONS: The waist has a line which is great, but there should be a hook & eye to secure the closure. (Plan on adding that.) The fabric is a lovely silk but shipping is not so kind to it. (be prepared for some wrinkles.) I am excited to see my request come to life!!!!!!! p.s. i did drop the star value on the 3 bottom ratings due to the hook & eye, the pressing issue and the $398.00 cost; though it is really above average and is worth more than one would normally spend on this type of item -- a lovely classic with a dramatic flair.
