Love this dress! -
I loved the classic look of this dress when it first came out, but the original price was a bit more than I could pay. I waited for a long time to be able to purchase it, and I am not disappointed! The rayon is soft, flowing, cool, and (as another reviewer pointed out) it actually does wash nicely in cold water if you hang it to dry (dry cleaning is also a bit much for my budget). The style is classic, with appropriate but comfortable coverage for warm weather. I was afraid the tied waist might look a little chunky on me, but it was surprisingly slimming. The elastic is a clever design. I am short-waisted and can sometimes wear a petite, but I ordered a regular for just a bit of blousing over the waistline. It fits beautifully, but if you have a longer torso it might not sit quite right. The skirt is long, full, and flowing: very feminine, and just right for many occasions without being too vintagey. And it has pockets - thank you, Orvis! In short, this is one of the most flattering, classic, comfortable dresses I have ever owned. I would love too see it in more colors and patterns (with a slightly lower price point?) in the near future. A+!

This dress is really quite old fashioned. It isn't just retro, it's the real thing I wore in the '50s. Maybe if I were younger it would look cute, but on me it just looks out of date.
Easy, Chic, Classic -

Really nice, classic dress. Slip it on,add a few accessories and you're out the door. Stylish for work with a pair of heels, comfortable for lunch date with flats. Navy with white dots never goes out of style. Fits well, looks great. A great addition to my Spring/Summer wardrobe. A great "go to" basic.
Beautiful shirt dress -
This is a beautiful fitting shirt dress made of a soft material that falls nicely all around.
Very Wearable! -

I have always liked polka dots and also a good looking shirtwaist dress. When I saw the combination I had to have it. I bought a Petite M, the fit is perfect, even the skirt length.The fabric is soft and comfortable.And the skirt has pockets! I gave the dress 4 stars instead of 5 because I thought the sleeves were a bit short.
Best Purchase Ever -

Everything about the dress was great..color, style, fabric. However, as reviewed by others, it was short waisted. This made it totally unacceptable, as there was no way to remedy the situation. Had to send it back.

I am very pleased with this dress. Polka dots seem to be on every thing these days, and I liked the crisp clean look of the white dots on dark navy blue. My favorite feature of this dress is the soft, silky feel of the fabric. I found it to be a little small, and ordered it one size larger. I also am pleased with its versatility, from office to dinner or church, this dress can take me any where..
