I am a fifties kid and shirtwaists were very popular.I love the style and ordered three of them from you. How- ever, the material wrinkles easily and I have to cut strong, because the dresses are not finished off.
I love this dress! It's a touch vintage and very figure flattering! The fabric has a touch of stretch, which makes it very easy to wear. The only thing that's a bummer is the skinny strip of matching fabric that's supposed to be the belt. I took that off right away and replaced it with a belt of my own. This dress will be a staple for ages!
I think this may be the perfect dress. I bought it in every color (still waiting on the burgandy with dots to ship; it's backordered.) It fits well, HAS POCKETS, is comfortable and looks nice. It's great for everyday wear or can easily be dressed up with a nice pair of shoes and some pearls. I think this style of dress would look great on every body type. I wish it came in more colors. A solid red would be nice, as would some floral prints. I only wear dresses, since I have 5 kids it's just an easy practical decision for me to only have to find one item of clothing each morning. I have been looking for a dress like this, with buttons (because I'm nursing a baby I need access LOL), pockets are a must-have and an easy to wash material. I need clothes that don't have to be treated special. This hits all of the markers. It also doesn't cost an arm and a leg, like some other similar dresses I have found. The final thing is the size. You can easily find nice dresses like this in straight sizes that are not too expensive, but most plus size dresses in this style cost around $100 for some reason. I know I've rambled (mom of 5 kids - can't think straight) but this is the best dress I've ever owned. I will try to come back later and post pictures of it in real life. Every time I wear this dress (in any color) I get tons of compliments on it.
I love this dress, I purchase the dress in a size 18W originally because I am a 18 for blouses and a 20W in pants. The top was a little snug but I have a large breast but the bottom fit perfectly. I return for the larger size and was pleasantly pleased and can't wait until my birthday to wear it.
I'm a sucker for shirt dresses, so I found this to be very pretty. It was cut somewhat small, however. If you want to buy this, I'd recommend going at least one size up from what you normally wear. I usually wear a 22/24 W (which is the size I initially bought this dress in), but exchanged it for a 26W. It fit me much better after that.
I ordered the appropriate size, but the dress is tighter than I'd like through the arms and waist, while blousy through the bust. The fabric is similar to that of a man's dress shirt, and overall was not that comfortable. The dress is cute when paired with a colorful shrug (I tried a red one) and navy espadrilles or sandals. I don't think the fit was what I was looking for, but it might be fantastic on another person!
