Not for someone with long torso This dress is cute but when I put it on it doesn't fit well at all. It made me look extra wide. The seam where the sweater is attached to the skirt is a little bulky and if I wear it so it sits at my natural waist it made my hips look super wide bc it bunched up and made the skirt poof out a little at the hips. But if I tried to pull it down so it sits where it does in the picture it just made me look boxy. Might look good on some body types but not good for someone with a long torso and curves.

Worth a Second Look When I pulled this dress out of the bag, I recalled the reviews about the short length and agreed - it looked short. Because it's an online exclusive, my local store told me that I could only return by mail. Frustrating at the time, but quite lucky because it prompted me to actually try it on. It's not too short - at all! The hem hits me exactly like the photo - right at the knee (I'm 5'5" and ordered the XS). I think the cropped look out of the bag is deceiving and is the result of the contrasts in color/fabric and also the shipping wrinkles. This dress is really beautiful and fits great - scary to think that I almost sent it back! For those of you concerned about the length, I think it will be fine for anybody about 5'7" and under.

Cute! Loved the dress! It looks just as it did on the web and it is a perfect fit! December 11, 2012
Nice I really like the retro feel of this dress. The skirt is lined and the double skirt fabric attached the the top wants to roll up and I keep pulling it down. Overall i like the dress a lot, especially with black oxfords. November 28, 2012
I really like the dress but it did fit a little more high wasted than I expected. November 14, 2012
Lovely dress! I am 5.9" and this dress fits really well. I wore it for the first time and random people on the street told me they loved my dress. I see how this dress would fit awkwardly for a taller person because it was just perfect for my height. Overall, I love this dress and it makes me look stunning! November 3, 2012
Might be a good dress if you are pretty short So I am 5'10" so pretty much the cut-off for dresses and pants being long enough. This dress fits ridiculously bad. where the skirt and the sweater meet is elastic and rides up horribly which looks really disproportioned. Also, where the skirt and the sweater meets they are sewn together about 1 inch into the sweater. That little bit of fabric is always flapping up. It is too bad, if the sweater was longer it would be a really pretty dress. I would send it back, but I thought I would try wearing it with a belt at the waist to hold it in place, unfortunately that was an epic fail and spent the whole day pulling the dress down.

Cute dress, odd fit I really wanted to love this dress, but it looked horrible on me. I'm 5'2" and a size L, and the location where the sweater ended and the dress started was really awkward and made me look much bigger and wider. If the sweater was 2-3 inches longer, it would have been perfect. October 27, 2012
