Rated 4 out of 5 by Starshine1 Ladylike and lovely
This dress is ladylike and appropriate for many occasions. I already have it in the dusty plum (which is a nice subdued color that is pretty but does not call attention to itself) and I have enjoyed wearing it since I bought it two autumns ago.. it is comfortably warm in coldest winter but doesn't make the wearer overheat.. It washes well and has kept its shape and the knit has not pilled. It does not look like thermal anything. It could be a wee bit of a more forgiving cut in the middle but it's not tight. It is slimming. I am moderately tall (5' 7 1/2"), "well-nourished," and the length for me is just right. Try it, you'll like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 74LouLou A good dress for fall and early spring.
The buttons should have been in velvet also. The buttons are cheap looking on it and I plan to put buttons with braid on them on the dress.

I returned this dress due to poor quaility of material and it looked cheap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 94kiki84 Dress disappointing because of arrival condition
The dress arrived so wadded up and wrinkled, I had to take it to a dry cleaner to have it professionally pressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Romanesca It was better than I expected after reading review
After reading some negative reviews I was afraid I wouldn't like the dress but i do like it. The fabric is only faintly like thermal underwear, as one person said. It could be a more expensive-looking material, but it's OK. The combination of the dress material and the velvet collar makes it a little less dressy than you would expect with the velvet collar. I got the red dress; maybe it looks better than the brownish/purplish one. I got the size I usually wear and it fits. So I am pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StellaLuna Overall I'm pleased
I am a mixed size: medium through shoulders, smaller in the chest, larger in the hips. This dress is good for me. The medium is true to size in shoulders and bust, but does run a bit too large in the waist and hips though, fortunately I am handy with a sewing machine and I am going to put a couple of darts in the back. Perhaps the designer could overcome that with an adjustable piece across the back of the waist.
I was apprehensive when I read the negative review about the fabric, but I must say I am pleased with the dusty plum color as it has the look of a fine wool without the scratchiness. The quality overall is good

Rated 3 out of 5 by marie369 I was disappointed that I had to pay return shippi
The dress has a nice style which is why I purchased it. The Large size was too big so I returned it for a Medium. The dress now fits except the bust is too tight, an issue I often have to contend with. I will try different bras and/or have the dress altered. However, there really is no extra fabric for such altering, and it also adds to cost of the dress. I consider the price of ~ $139 high for the quality of it (see above - no extra fabric for altering bust), also no lining which I knew, yet still makes the price high for that lack of quality. In any case, I will keep the dress, but probably will not purchase from you again, mostly b/c of the return shipping cost.
