Bookseller dress

Love this dress - it's my first Seasalt purchase. I've already worn it half a dozen times since I got it. Looks brilliant with jumpers for cooler weather or t shirts when it's warmer. I'm 5ft3in and it's quite long - below the knee - and I may get it shortened but I'm very happy with it altogether.

Dear Deborah
Thanks for your review of the Bookseller Pinafore; sorry it wasn’t a perfect length for you. We do however have some other great designs available in our Petite Range, specifically designed for people under 5ft 3inches, which you might be interested in.

Live It

I usually wait for a sale to purchase anything, but l bought this fabulous pinafore the week it was available. I have (am) living in it. At 5ft 4 the length is spot on the knee. It has been washed so often that now it is so soft. I adore it.

All 'Ship Shape'

A well made garment, sensible length and delivered according to plan. Would have appreciated a zip in the under arm seam especially for the price paid. I tried to purchase this garment in several Seasalt franchises but none had any in stock so may be a good idea to promote such a popular item.

Pinafore dress

I bought this dress a size smaller and is a better fit for this. A really good at home/ studio work dress. I love the knee length, needing no shortening length.

Awful sizing discrepancies

Tried size 18 in denim.bookseller dress as large busted but smaller bottom half , tight on bust , tried size 20 on , enormous , measured the size 18 against a size 16 , 1 cm wider , size 20 was 5" wider than size 18 ??? How on earth does that make sense , left with nothing but a wasted journey .

Lovely Versatile dress

Loved this dress bought a size 12 but had to go down a size. Checked measurements and a size 12 is a 39.8 bust whilst a size 10 is 37.8.
I probably like a more streamlined look but tried it on with the striped T-shirt underneath and size 10 still fitted well. Will wear it lots

Useful dress

I found that I had to go up a size in this dress. I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of it

Brilliant Pinafore

I fell in love with this pinafore online and ordered it on a Saturday night, wanted to wear it on my birthday the following Wednesday. Didn’t expect it to arrive in time tho but big surprise, it arrived Wednesday morning and I wore it all day! Plus the next and the one after that! I love it, so easy to wear and goes over so many things - tees, shirt, light jumper.

Versatile pinafore

I already have the burgundy needlecord pinafore, which I have worn loads, so I treated myself to this one which will be suitable for spring and summer with bare legs, or tights and boots now. However, it is much tighter under the arms than my other one. I have had to alter it before I can wear it. It looks good though!
