Women's Vintage Batik Crinkle Dress
The fit was both snug and big at the same time
I had read reviews that had mentioned a problem with the proportions of this dress but I must have misunderstood. I thought that they said that the shoulder area was roomier and the torso section was not so large. It turns out that the opposite was the case. My somewhat larger shoulders felt a bit snug in the dress whereas the area from the chest down felt like a circus tent it was so blousy. The proportions of the dress were off. If the torso portion of the dress were equal to the shoulder area, the dress would have been perfect as I have slim hips. A little loose would have been fine but this was like a tent on me with a bit of restriction in the shoulder area. I could not have fixed this with a different size as one section would have been off either way.

I was disappointed by the quality of construction. The neckline was cut and sewn unevenly, lying to slightly one side instead of in the middle. The fabric was very rough, but it may have softened with laundering. The fit was very strange, way too big in the top (and I am large there) and snug in the hip area, resulting in a strange draping of the fabric in back rather than the loose fall it should have. Overpriced for the quality.

Features of the Vintage Batik Crinkle Dress
I love the look of this dress. Its best features for me are the length, which I love and the sleeves. The material is very nice. The only feature that I don't like is the upper fit around the neckline, which for me is just a bit loose.

This dress does little to flatter a petite woman's figure.

Pretty dress- runs small had to return
Dress very pretty, but it runs small. Used your measurements from catalog to choose size.

I would have preferred this dress to have adjustable ties instead of princess seaming. I am short and it was not available in petite hence the waist was not exactly in the right place. I like the fabric and the print so I am going to try to adjust the fit with some alterations. I wish it had come in petite sizes.

Odd cut and fit; not as shown.
I ordered my usual Petite Medium; It was much longer than shown - ankle length rather than below knee. The cut and fit are very weird; waist placement strange too. The top is very blousy. I sent it back.

I had looked forward to receiving this dress but was terribly disappointed in the fit. I ordered a petite medium. Although the fit was ok from the front view the side seam pockets were quite low and the bodice was quite full in the back. A somewhat balloon effect. The positives were the print and the fabric which I loved.
