Our Clove Hitch Dress is a flattering, below-the-knee length shirt dress with a ’70s feel. It's semi fitted and made from soft needlecord with a deep button placket, two handy pockets and a slim tie to cinch it in at the waist. Great with a chunky cardigan and leather ankle boots for casual autumn days.

Gorgeous dress

This is such a beautiful dress. Ummed and aghed for ages as I wondered if needlecord would make it feel bulky but shouldnt have worried. Its soft and comfortable and could be dressed up with tights and smart boots or dressed down with pumps. I went for the petitie as I am 5 ft 2 and it fits me exactly as in the pics. Highly recommended. Seasalt - more of this style in different colours would be fab.

Perfect Every Day Dress

Gorgeous print and lovely soft needlecord which makes it so comfortable to wear. Another great feature is that the dress is lined. I decided to buy the tall size as I'm 5'7" and it's a perfect length for me. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

It's a lovely dress, we definitely need more of them!
Great cut, elegant print, the right amount of the right contrast, and... pocketses!
I went up a size, not for the bust but for the shoulders - and it was the right thing to do. If your shoulders are on the wider side, definitely size up. The top will be somewhat roomy but not baggy and your shoulders will thank you.
Pockets! Ahhh! Seasalt, thank you so much for making dresses with this type of pockets: discreet but fully functional.
I'm definitely buying this dress in a different colour, as long as you keep it elegant or retro/geek. How about dark red with Glasgow roses or a psychedelic 70s print?

My perfect dress!

I was thrilled when I pulled this dress out of the packaging and even more thrilled when I tried it on! I’m 5ft 1”, so I went for a 12 petite - it fits perfectly! I love it - the soft, fine cord, the length, the sleeves, the way it hangs beautifully, the very high quality - it’s lined and it has pockets!!!!!!!

Clove hitch dress

Ahh! A well-made, well-fitting everyday dress that is charming and not frumpy is such a treasure! And the pockets are the frosting on the cake!

Soft and stylish

I love this dress! It's the first shirt dress that I've worn that I feel actually suits me. The print is lovely and simple and the fit is just right. I bought a petite in black as I'm only 5 ft tall but the length is perfect, just below the knee. More dresses like this please!

My new go to dress

Absolutely love this dress. Tried both 22 and 24 as having read the reviews and being large busted. The 22 fitted perfectly. This dress is very well made and the fabric hangs beautifully. Dress it up with heels or casual with flats. A perfect dress for autumn/ winter.

I love this dress!

So comfortable! The corduroy is lovely and soft and the shape is great. I am usually a 12 tall in Seasalt and got this in a 14 tall per the reviews and it fits beautifully.

My new favourite winter dress

I'm really pleased with this dress, Going by the reviews, I went a size up as I have a large bust and arms, and knew I'd want to wear a top under this; I'm normally an 18 in Seasalt but went for a 20. It's not too tight across the bust and has room to move around the waist and hips, but doesn't look baggy.

I would have preferred it with full-length sleeves... but I would always prefer those on a winter dress! The 3/4 ones are OK but in combination with the corduroy fabric, it's a little hard to slip a cardigan on over them. Other than that, though , it's great! And it has pockets!

Classy Dress

Bought this dress in the sale and wasn't sure if the shirt dress style would suit me but as soon as I put it on I was delighted. It's a really nice shape and very flattering.. I am 5ft 2 and take a 14 or 12 in Seasalt dresses, depending on the cut and I chose 14 regular in this one after reading the reviews, which was just right. The only thing I would say is if you are larger in the bust, you might find it a little tight in the top....I am 36B bust and it's OK for me but any bigger and it might be a problem. Having said this, it is a great dress which is versatile for day or evening wear with opaque tights as shoes or boots.
