I love this dress

I bought the same style dress in a different colour last year. It's comfortable to wear and the cheerful print has attracted lots of praise.

Amazing Dress!

This dress is just me. It's beautiful. I saw it in a shop window (shop closed though) when I was out sightseeing and just had to look it up online when I got home. It would suit any age and look funky on an older woman as well as chic on a younger person. I am so happy with my dress!

Pretty dress

Pleased with the size and length but disappointed that the background was grey. The red and blue were beautiful but the grey spoils the effect.

Product reviews

I originally ordered the seamstress dress in petite size 8 as I am a short size 8 but found it to be much too tight and much too short. I ended up with the normal size 8 which was fine.

Very pretty summer dress

I loved this Seamstress dress in the layered salt leaf print back in the summer but I didn't buy it because I knew the style wasn't really right for me. I don't like sleeveless dresses on me, and I am top heavy so I usually buy the Seasalt shirtwaister styles like Lottie and Beatrice which flatter my figure. However, I love the beautiful print so when I saw the dress in the sale I just had to buy it! I tried it on with a T-shirt under it or a short-sleeved cotton cardigan over it to hide my upper arms, and it looks really lovely. Now the winter is coming it's too cold to wear it but I know that when summer arrives I'll wear it a lot.

Perfect dress

Loved the fit of this dress so much that I bought both of the wonderful patterned dresses. I’m usually a 12 but bought 14 in this dress as it felt much better on me.
Had loads of compliments about these dresses!

Recently purchased in two print designs. Kept both as the style of dress and fabric is so lovely. I'm 5', 1" and a pear shaped chubby lady in my late forties. It's the first dress in years that I've found works well for me and makes me feel confident in. Please Seasalt, can we have more of this design in different prints and also some plain ones. From reading other reviews, its a style that works well for lots of different body shapes. I also got the Marjoram Cardigans to go with the dresses and its a great look.

Amazing dress!

I love love love this dress! I bought it first in bathing beauties and was so on board to buy the green oars version but it was on sale so soon after it's release and then sold out before I knew it. Very disappointed with that!! Will teach me to buy as soon as I see something I like I guess! >.<

A Lovely Dress

I love this dress!! Layered Leaf Salt is a gorgeous and sophisticated print which will co-ordinate with lots of different coloured accessories. The style of the dress is simple and comfortable with a neat side zip. The length is just below the knee and the waist and hip sizing are spot on. The top half is a little large, but not noticeably so. (I am 5"9" and a size 18).
