Gorgeous Dress! Exceptional quality, very well made.
Best Dress Ever -
Love this dress! I have looked for this style dress to buy for a while, and want to say thank you, Orvis!! Please in the future have others in more colors, as they are great for elementary school teachers. They are comfortable, professional and easy to care for. I hope to see more in the future. Thank you.
candy purple color "grape" -
The photo belies the candy purple color ("grape") of this dress. The styling and pattern, combined with the color, may be regarded by many to be grandmotherly. The dress appeared to be well constructed and tailored. Returned.
The actual color of the dress bears no resemblance to its depiction on-line or in the catalog. I was so disappointed; the dark purple is unattractive.
Very nice dress! -

I like this dress very much. The fabric has a lovely drape and the length is just what I'm always looking for. The only thing I'm not fond of is the tie belt so I will replace that. I usually wear a medium in Orvis tops and it was true to that sizing. I think it will be just right for all the times I'd love to wear a dress but don't want to look too dressy.
Pretty dress but fit not flattering -
I bought this in a size 8 and liked the style and color, but the fit was not flattering. It bloused up too much around my waist. I then tried a size smaller, which was still not flattering. I have many Orvis dresses which fit well, so I'm not sure why this one didn't. And the color is grape with black floral -- a quite purple grape color! The purple looked much darker and bluer online.
Love it -

This dress has the perfect stretch waist for someone who wants to hide hers! Slenderizing fabric too. Ordered size 14. True to size. I hope Orvis carries more of this shirtwaist style in the future.
Dress for busy ladies -
By: Smuck from Meridian, ID
This dress is perfect for those of us who are too busy to carry stuff around in our hands. It actually has workable pockets, something that is very difficult to find these days. Added to that is its great, classic look and lovely fit. Highly recommended.
