If I could buy this again, I would size down by one; it's quite loose and will need a belt to make it flattering. I'm impressed with the material though! Lovely strong yet light top half and pretty skirt. A bit overpriced for what you get though.

I completely agree with other reviews which is tragic. The quality is awesome, it feels like a dream. However the portion or the top doesnt make sense and the pucker of the seem in the hip area is awful. Returning.

I got this dress on a whim during the cyber Monday sale. It is definitely one of my better impulse buys. The pattern on the skirt is really pretty and the overlay layer hits right above the knee (I'm 5'2" though, so I could see the slip underneath being a little short on taller girls) The material and zipper also seem really strong.I do see what the other reviewers are saying though. The waist does hit at rather an odd place (you can see in the one picture), slightly below my natural waist, but I put a belt on quickly remedied that (I'm wearing a black one in the picture with the jacket so it's hard to tell). I can also see why other reviews mentioned the "side boob" The arm holes were definitely on the larger side so you could see my bra. However I through a jacket on over it for a short-term fix. (Looking at it closer I realized the darting is either placed oddly, or just didn't take in enough fabric, I sew so I can fix this relatively easily). I feel like it looks better with a jacket or sweater anyway though. This is a dress you can either be super casual with or fancy it up with accessories as well. You can see in my picture I put a blazer over it and it looks work appropriate. I actually wore the dress, with the blazer, black tights and black booties for a class presentation and got a lot of compliments on it. I know how much I look at reviews for reference so I hope this helps someone fall in love with this dress :)
Kate - Review from ModCloth
Definitely agree with the first reviewer. The waist on this dress sat soooo weirdly on me. I am reasonably petite and have a small waist, but the way this dress sat on my waist made me look huge. It was just unflattering. No way I could wear this out, so I will be returning it. The skirt section of the dress is beautiful, so it's a pity that the weird fitting top (the fabric of which isn't very good quality, either) lets it down.
Melissa - Review from ModCloth
Guys, this dress fits weird. The armholes are really large, so that if you have a large chest you'll end up showcasing a lot of sideboob. The waist is oddly high; like, ribcage level. I would size up, but it's also way too wide at the waist and the sideboob situation is pretty dangerous as it is. The skirt hits me at about my knees, so maybe this is just for small-chested ladies with torsos on the shorter side. It's a beautiful dress, just not for someone with my proportions I guess.
