Perfect dress. Make more of this exact dress!

Absolutely gorgeous dress. I really adore the pattern.
I just wish it had buttons as I am breast feeding.
Can you make this exact dress shape again in other patterns with buttons. It’s such a wonderful dress. I love retro styles. Thank you so much Seasalt.i feel so Lady like in this dress. It’s easy to wear anywhere. I wear it with cute shoes even to the suoermarket on a sunny day.
The only little quibble is that the dress is very puffy. It will make your hips look huge. I was lucky as I bought a size smaller. So I would suggest the design team cut the dress with slightly less material. I know it’s retro but it’s a lot of flouncy material and it’s not very flattering.like I said I went down a size and it’s still too much material over the hips,

But I love the dress. Well done.

Nice dress, but tight on the shoulders

It's a nice dress, nice fabric, but had to return this dress, as it was too tight over the shoulders. Normally a size 12 fits me, but some of the Seasalt dresses are tight over the shoulders/bust.

Wow

As soon as I saw this dress I knew it was for me, a lovely length, proper sleeves and the pattern is stunning. I did go up a size after checking the measurements, it would have been to tight across the bust in my normal size. Thank you Seasalt.😊

Perfect dress

As soon I spotted this dress I loved it. I tried it on in store but it was too long (petite sizes only available on line) but the actual 14 fitted like a dream. I waited some time for a 14 petit to back in stock (checking every day on line!) and yes I got one! I’m 5ft 3 and a size 14 and it fits perfectly. Nipped in waist and little cap sleeves. I feel amazing in it. Like the other reviewers said be lovely to have this is other colour would definitely buy them all! The fabric is oh so pretty as well. It is fab! More like this please! And some
More nautical dresses like 2 years ago!

Tight across the bust

I so wanted this beautiful dress to fit my 32 FF bust but it was not to be !It pulled slightly and did not feel comfortable. I ordered the size 14 and it fitted perfectly elsewhere (I wear size 12 in skirts and trousers ).So sorry but sadly I have to send it back.

Top terrace dress spear wort night

Another lovely style of dress. The material is a fine cotton and feels wonderful to wear. It falls just right. Like the previous reviewer, the length is a little longer, which is more flattering for the 60 something! Seasalt clothes never fail me, they are beautifully made with quality materials. I do find the dresses are a smaller fit than the tops, but that isn't a problem at all. Thankyou Seasalt.

I love this dress. It fits perfectly, is flattering and has triggered dress envy in one or two friends who have impeccable taste. I did get it with 20% discount but would have paid full price.

strange sizing in petite

I have been waiting for months to buy my first seasalt dress, and I was SO excited to finally get one. Unfortunately, the sizing in the petite sizes seems to be really off. I am 5'2" and 120 lbs and normally wear a 0 or 2 in American sizes, and I have a pretty average shaped body that usually fits most clothes. The 6P was way too small for me, so I replaced it with a 10P, which was too big in the bust and waist, too small in the shoulders, and too long. The fabric is really lightweight, and when you're walking it bunches awkwardly around your knees if you wear it with tights, especially with a coat, even with a short slip underneath. You'll definitely need a below-the-knee slip to make this dress fall correctly if you want to wear it with tights.

Well done Seasalt-Fab retro cotton dress

This retro feel lightweight cotton dress is just super.
The fit and styling is very good and it feels lovely to wear. The length is very good too. So nice to have a longer length rather than everything sitting on the knee which is not always flattering.
Would live to see this available in a lighter coloured fabric for midsummer.

Beautiful dress which fits like a dream and HAS POCKETS

I tried this dress on in my local store with every intention of waiting for the sales, but I simply couldn’t wait.

It fits beautifully. It’s fully lined which helps it to keep its shape, especially on the skirt. It has practical pocket!

However one word of caution. The colour runs. I was so excited to wear it that I wore it without washing it.
The colour ran to my watch strap, hand bag and arms!
When I washed it I did so on its own and the water was bright blue!

Beautiful dress for a summer wedding

I bought this in a 10 petite - I'm 5 foot 2", and it's just right lengthwise. The waist feels slightly high, but my daughters assure me it's just right. I love the vibrant colours - I find some Seasalt prints too muted - and the cotton with cotton lining makes for a very fresh sensation. Unfortunately, it needs more ironing than most Seasalt dresses because of the fabric. I am going to wear it to an informal summer wedding, and I know I'll wear it for all sorts of things.

Hurray I’ve found a dress !

This dress suits me beautifully (size 16)the fit is perfect. Longer length for me as my legs are not great. Usually my wardrobe is full of blue clothing, so this cherry red colour was new on me. It is beautiful,lined and I am so pleased with it.
The manageress of the Cribbs causeway store in Bristol was so helpful and matched it with the Vanessa cardigan in maple. A perfect outfit for my niece’s wedding in June. I just need to find some shoes now !
Seasalt has some beautiful clothes this season.Usually I have to wear cropped trousers as summer dresses are to short. Seasalt will be my one stop dress shop this year.
Please keep the longer lengths for us (almost pensioners with not so perfect legs )

Beautiful dress

This dress caught my eye when I saw it in my local shop, wow it's beautiful, very retro, the fit is perfect, size 8 is spot on, the length is a little longer than I usually wear being 5'5 but that's ok as it suits the style of the dress, but can be shortened if needed. Fully lined and two large pockets, everything you need. Also no front buttons to gap, so you can relax when wearing it. Keep the lovely dresses coming Seasalt!!

I love the dress .I put it on and it was me! As I'm only 5ft I had to have it shortened and my dressmaker made an unexpected comment. She usually admires Seasalt material but she wasn't so sure of this one. Personally I do think it might need a regular ironing but I still think it's lovely.

So pleased with this dress- I'm cautious when buying online and especially as I'm ordering from Australia but this dress has turned out exactly as pictured- perfect size as well.

Gorgeous, flattering vintage dress

Lovely print and flattering vintage full skirted dress. I particularly like the fact the bodice doesn't have buttons to gape and the design of the collar. Quite expensive but good quality and I know I will wear it for many years to come. Looks great with a cropped cardigan and heels or with flat pumps for a more casual look. This was a birthday present to myself and I love it, thank you Seasalt

Lovely dress

I ordered 3 shirtwaist or fit and flare dresses I’m going on a cruise and thought they’d be perfect and I think if you were either shorter or thinner they would! I’m 6ft and a size 26 so they didn’t do it for me! This one I’d gorgeous and I really didn’t want to take it off but it just wasn’t long enough in the body for me and had to sadly go back but if you are a different dimension order this dress you will not be disappointed

lovely dress

I already wrote a review for this dress and said I love it but it was a bit small on the bust so returned it. However, I decided to reorder and give it another try as clothing often varies in sizing a little. I have now received my reordered dress and its perfect and I do absolutely love it.

Gorgeous dress!

This is my third Seasalt dress - and like the previous two, it fits like a dream and looks and feels just wonderful. Being of ample curve, the fit & flare style is both comfortable and extremely flattering. And the print is beautiful,

Classic summer dress

I went into store for another style....but came out with this one! The pattern and the wonderful colours immediately caught my eye. As a person who hasn’t had much luck with finding a dress to fit in all the right places, I didn’t hold out much hope. Hey presto, I finally have!! With the feel of the soft, silky cotton sliding on and the bonus of a lining just as soft, I felt the excitement rising. As soon as I zipped it up, I knew it was for me., just so comfortable. I am 5ft 6ins and have the regular length which ends more or less mid calf, the belt I decided was better tied loosely behind so that it didn’t accentuate my midriff, and the collar has the added advantage of either being rolled down or it can stand up.
All in all, this is the perfect summer dress that you can just pop on and forget....beautifully made and just how I remember them years ago! I do hope this style is made in other patterns and colours.

Top Terrace dress

This dress feels lovely to wear and is an attractive design.I initially ordered the regular size but it was too long .I subsequently ordered the petite version and found the proportions and length,below the knee, suited me much better even though I am taller than 5' 3 but have narrow shoulders and a small head! I am glad to have discovered this and will look out for the petite versions in future.

Lovely dress

I spend all my time in trousers, but occasionally need to look a bit more -
Well - dressy, and this caught my eye, my colours, flattering shape, all the things I like, no plunge neckline or sleeveless. Very happy with this dress, it's actually very flattering!

Fabulous

I Found Seasalt Petite by accident! So delighted to be able to buy clothes that fit. Trend led wider trouser legs and longer skirt lengths make the high street a depressing place to shop this season for petites. Introducing colour and pattern into my wardrobe was daunting but this is a perfect summer dress, fitted but skimming it looks made to measure for a size 10 at 157cm. Lined beautifully in good quality soft cotton. It is truly an ageless dress, looks good with flats or heals. I hope that another colourway appears in the summer collection.

Lovely Dress

I love this dress as it is a perfect style for my pear shape figure, This is a dress with a waist line and tie belt which I think is a flattering style, with a vintage 40's look. Lovely soft material, and beautiful colours. I do hope this style will be made in other colours as I prefer a dress with a defined waist.

Lovely Fabric

A well-made Summer frock in a lovely fabric. I returned it because it didn’t suit me as well as previous Seasalt frocks had done for the following reasons: (1) The waist was too high, above my ribcage; (2) the sleeves just a little too short; (3) the length would have been better - around 126cm. The frock was too skimpy for me at 5ft 9.5in, 35/28/36.

I absolutely loved this dress when it arrived. It is beautiful, but trying it on it was too small in the bust - which is something I often find with sea salt tops and dresses. I have an hourglass shape so sometimes I try a larger size, but then its too big elsewhere.

Lovely Top Terrace Dress

Absolutely lovely dress! I was given a gift voucher for my birthday and I selected this dress. It is a very flattering fit and the print is so pretty. I cannot wait to wear it in the warmer weather with my red clogs.! I ordered a size 10 and it is just perfect. Zip up the side and fabric belt. Lined as well which is always a bonus.
