When you see this dress you don't think "brown." It has a lovely sheen to the fabric and in certain lights it has a plum colored cast to it. I am 5'-6" , brunette and about 150 lbs. and this dress drapes very nicely in my usual size of 16. I've been able to wear this with a brown/blue/tan floral shirt and also with turtlenecks. It's versatile and feminine. I did have the self-belt removed and the drape of the dress is still very nice. The buttons down the front give the dress a slimming effect and when I wear it with a cream colored turtleneck and want a shock of color, I wear a long gold or a turquoise scarf draped around my neck. Works for me!

Great color (the blue), nice fabric, good fit (not the frequent too-wide shoulders), attractive enough for work or the movies, looks just as good after wear and washing (I hang it to dry). I usually don't like the back tie, but this one is proportionate to the dress.
Dress for winter -
This dress works great with a turtleneck and boots. It's soft and the fit is flattering. I wish it had pockets!
Soft hand, comfortable wearing -

The soft, fawn brown is wonderful! I usually don't wear brown, but this dress is the exception. As I loved the blue and black, I decided to try the brown. Very pleasing color, that coordinates well with many styles of tops. Will be wearing this dress as long as I lasts.
Great for office or dinner -

Dress is nice for office, and can be dressed up with accessories for dinner. Black and white for very formal, or add a soft color for less formal occassion.

'Loved the fabric, color (black) - but even though I sized down, the fit was baggy in the bodice.
Velvety feel of suede in an easy-care fabric
Our trademark Country Suede™ fabric was created as an ideal complement to the distinctive outdoor lifestyle enjoyed by Orvis customers.

The Fabric for Fall and Winter
