I'm on the large side and ordered a 24, it was a bit big and probably a 22 would have done.
However, I am also 5'8", and could barely reach the pockets they are so low down, very odd, as is the horizontal seam which runs across the front of the garment just above the unreachable pockets.
I love the fabric and the colour, PLEASE use it to make tunics and I will buy one.
The dress, on me, was a disaster and I have returned it.

Lovely fabric poor fit on me

Well made, lovely fabric, the dress would have been perfect if it had been A-line in shape as apposed to straight up and down, this meant it was tight over my hips, this would have been OK with a stretchy fabric. I disappointedly returned it. On the photo on the web site the dress did look slightly A-line and it is described as having a relaxed fit, I think it is on the small side for that description.

Lovely dress

Found this dress to be very comfortable and so pleased it’s lined. Have purchased needle cord before and it just sticks to tights. Fit is generous (size 10) but I think an 8 would be too small.

Love it!

This dress is gorgeous. I love the colour combination of navy and gold which works really well with the check design. The fabric is wonderful and because it is a very fine needle-cord it feels lovely and soft. I bought a size 10 which fits my 5' 3" slim figure perfectly. Looks good with a lightweight polo-neck underneath too for those cooler days. Love it and would definitely recommend.

I absolutely adore this dress! it is beautiful. The colours are much deeper than in the images. I did size up to a 10 as an 8 would have been too tight with my bust. This is a really beautiful dress, I feel like I've stepped out of the 60's :)

Martingale dress

Loved the material and colour, but had to return it as it was a little tight over hips. A very straight cut dress.

Please make a longer version!

Gorgeous fabric and comfortable fit , but ....... Too short for a dress (even an above the knee dress) and too long for a tunic. (I'm 173 cm tall so not way above average). Too expensive to alter so sadly had to return. Come on Seasalt, please don't forget your taller customers!

Not sure

This looks lovely on the models, with a slight A-line , which isn't there in real life. I am finding it disappointing and struggling to want to keep it, due to the lovely appearance online. The fabric is lovely,, a fine baby needlecord, in a subtle ochre and dark navy check, which looks sophisticated and classy.
I ordered a size 10 at first, as the size 12 Mill Pool dress I had ordered before drowned me, but in this dress, the 10 was too small. I didn't attempt to pull it down over my hips as it was a very tight fit. I re-ordered in a size 12, but although it fits, it still doesn't look right on me. There is no "give" in the fabric, and it doesn't flatter my slightly lumpy hourglass figure. It fits better at the top, and is quite snug at the hips, being a very straight cut.
On a person of my height, (5 ft 4 ins), the smaller end of "regular", it reaches slightly below the knee, which does not look good without some drape. The pockets are way too low to reach comfortably. My arms are average in length and size, but the pockets sit below my hips. I did consider keeping it and altering it by taking it up at the hip line, as I am an experienced dressmaker, but that would be a major alteration, and if not successful, could ruin the dress. I don't want to make major alterations to a dress which is so expensive. I think to be worth the money it needs to fit perfectly for that price.
I would try the dress in a shorter fitting if it were available. In the meantime I think I will return the 12, and think about the 14 for a little while, to see if the desperate urge to have it leaves me once I have forgotten it a little.

Smart casual

Lovely dress very comfortable , and your sizing this season seems to be better. The gold colour was not as vibrant on this dress as it looked in the picture, but was pleased to find the other colour was navy and not black as it seemed in your photo. an all round dress for lots of occasions , thankyou. Very pleased

Love this dress!

Great fit and fabric - much lovelier in the fresh than the photographs. Good shape and very easy to wear. Bound to be a favourite.
