REALLY nice dress! I have a few of this style, absolutely LOVE the crinkle dress! It just works for dress up or down. I wear them to work with a nice sweater or jacket. Comfortable, looks great, and SO easy to care for. I wash delicate in cold water, twist, and hang up to dry. I will order more of these for the spring. You will need a slip/undergarment with this as they are not lined.
The color is vibrant. The sleeve style is perfect for someone with a little bit of heavier upper arms. Not too much fabric. Just enough for flattering coverage without too much. The crinkle fabric tends to stretch a bit. I plan to wear this for everything from going to the movies with grandchildren, to shopping, to volunteer work! You can change the look with a belt or jewelry and choice of shoes.
Only draw backs are there was a place in the seam that hadn't been caught and I had to repair, and also wish this had been offered in a petite. It is much too long, and I had to shorten it, but I love that it looks nice and doesn't wrinkle
I ordered 3 of these dresses in differ prints, I am a little disappointed that they are so long. I ordered average but they will have to be hemmed before I wear them. I can't walk with out stepping on dress. It needs hemmed about six inches. This is the 1st time I have been really disappointed in my purchase.
Love, Love, Love this dress!! Very comfortable, perfect length if you are a true "maxi girl" like I am! Loved the sleeves! When I ordered the first dress, I was worried the sleeves would be "cup" sleeves, but no, they are a true bell sleeve which I LOVE! Covers just enough of the upper arm that makes someone feel comfortable about not having to wear a cardigan to hide upper arms if you are a person that your upper arms are not your favorite part of your body. I've ordered several of these maxi dresses, both with sleeve & sleeveless!! To keep these dresses looking great, store them in a draw twisted just like you receive them so the crinkle will stay in the dress! Can't say enough good things about this perfect maxi!! Very forgiving if you have a lot of curves where you should & where we shouldnt!!??
OK, I travel a lot and "crinkle dresses" never need ironing. The material is very thin, you need a slip. That normally wouldn't be a problem, but I have a chihuahua that jumps. I cannot wear the dress near him, he has caused several holes. The hem has also come out in one of the dresses and I had to have it repaired by my seamstress. The long dresses are a bit too long for me, so I had 3 of them hemmed. Even with these problems I will probably buy more because of the ease when travelling, and the dog isn't with me then, lol.
Love these comfortable dresses - perfect for AZ weather
I own several of these dresses. The dresses are easy care; simply wash and lay twisted to dry. The dress is fitted when it first goes on but stretches out during the day so I add a loose fitting contour belt to the dress and blouse it to keep the length at my ankles. The colors stay true. Coupled with a pair of flat sandals I am ready to face the summer heat. I receive many complements. The sleeves are not complementary, I cut them off and make the dress into a sleeveless dress. It would be nice if the sleeves could be redesigned to not look like wings.
This dress is so odd. Waaayyyyy too long, made for someone extremely tall, thin and very busty. I am none of these. I'm 5'6" and it drags on the ground. The crinkle is too tight, but too loose if you iron it and you need a flared slip to give it any shape or it just sucks in around your ankles. I am going to shorten mine by 6 inches and re-sew the side seems to try to make it work, but if you're not a seamstress don't bother with the dress. The only reason I'm keeping it is that cotton dresses are so hard to find.
