Comfortable, stylish and with pockets

Great colour, great fabric, a style that can suit every day or special occasions - and with pockets. Very much looking forward to some suitable weather.

Beautiful dress

This is a lovely dress. The red is a more muted colour than shown in the photograph, which I prefer. The linen drapes very nicely and the fit is true to size. I'm sure I will get a lot of wear out of this come summer!

Nice dress but...

I ordered the blue in this dress as I have to have a waist on all dresses I wear... last years was too straight in style so when I saw this I thought great! Lovely sky blue and good midi length but such a shame the sleeves are not good! I couldn’t even lift my arms up without them digging in. I tried a 14 and 16 even the 16 was the same even though too big on the waist. This dress would’ve been perfect with maybe cap sleeve or normal short sleeves. So frustrating as the rest of the dress is lovely. The sizes was correct though... I’m normally a 14 sometimes 16 depending on the dress and 14 fitted well. Had to return unfortunately.

Sleeves are a problem!

Loved this dress and wanted to keep it but in the end had to return it. It has so many positives going for it but for me is let down by the sleeves. There is insufficient movement allowed for with the cut of the sleeves which means that when I want to raise my arms for any reason, the sleeves pull the dress upwards. When my arms are down the sleeves are not tight fitting at all and the dress looks fine, but even in a driving position the sleeves pull uncomfortably. A real shame. I think the cut around the sleeves needs reviewing and this dress would then be an absolute winner.

Lovely Colour

Love this linen dress in red, makes a change from the usual blues and greens. Nice fit, perfect for keeping cool on a hot summers day.

Lovely - but strange armholes

I love my Carved Wood dress, so was excited to see this similar style, and with the tie-waist, which I always find useful and pretty. While I really love the '40s shape of this dress and the soft "schooner" color, the armholes seem to be cut quite low. From certain angles, you can get a good look at my bra. (Might be that I have narrow shoulders - others may not have this issue.) Despite this quibble, will enjoy wearing this dress in the summer.

Lovely colour & fabric

I love this soft red colour, and the heavier quality linen drapes beautifully.
Not so sure that the grown on sleeve style works well with broad shoulders & larger bust, but hoping to make it work as so very nice. Would love this colour in the Primary dress style.

Absolutely Gorgeous Dress

I have been looking at this Herring Sky dress for several days and finally took the plunge and ordered it. It arrived today and it's absolutely beautiful! I am 5' 9" so being able to order in 'tall' length is really appreciated. The waistline is still a bit high for me, but certainly not as high as regular length dresses. The linen has a lovely weight and thickness to it so it drapes rather than floats around. The shoulders/sleeves are really flattering and balance the figure. I really wanted to order the 'primula' but seeing the comments about it being more rusty coloured than it appears on-screen made me go with the 'schooner', particularly as I received a catalogue recently which has the same colour as it shows on my screen. That said, this dress is so nice I'm going to order it anyway! Thank you too for looking after NHS workers!

Herring Sky dress in primula

The colour is nicer than it appeared on my phone. Perfect length and fit (size 8). The sort of dress that will never go out of fashion

A lovely dress

I bought this style in blue last year and loved the feel of the linen, the rather retro style and (I ordered petite) its length. I saw it this year I the red and ordered it. After the lockdown I want to be more positive in colour. I think the tie belt may be a bit fussy but really that is so minor: I can’t wait to wear it.
