Great length and it has POCKETS!!

Really pleased with this dress. It ticks all the boxes for me, fit and flare shape, midi length ,and pockets! I love Seasalt but it has been a while since I saw a fabric pattern in a style of dress that I love for me. More of the same please!!

Just beautiful!

This is a lovely dress which drapes beautifully. I agree with others who say it looks better on than on the hanger. I had ordered the regular length but returned it as the petite looks much better on me at 5’ 3”.
I too love dresses with pockets. Thank you Seasalt l

Gorgeous dress but short in the waist.

This is a beautiful dress and so disappointed that I had to return it. Like every other Seasalt dress I have purchased it is short waisted on me. I am only 5ft 4in and ordered the Regular fit...perfect in every way apart from the short waist.

Hi Rossa

Thank you for reviewing the Folk Tale Dress. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't perfect for you this time and of course we'll arrange a 'no quibble' refund for you.

We've got some beautiful dresses in our new collection. The St Margaret's, or Manaccan Dresses might just be perfect so do take a look...

Best wishes

More dresses with pockets please!

Very flattering shaped dress, and I always love a dress with pockets! Pleasantly surprised to find it is a dark navy dress rather than black as I first thought. Usual size 12 fits perfectly and looks better on than on the hanger. So many beautiful dresses to choose from - I want them all!!

Rich colours and feel

Looks and feels wonderful on much better than on hanger!
Lovely thick fabric and the turquoise/ gold colour pops out. Swishy lined full skirt with pockets ! Regular is long on me (5ft 2”) which I love, sits at top of ankle boots.

Fabulous quality and fit

Loved this dress from the moment I tried it on, so ideal for this 70 year old. Good true fit and the midi length ideal for an oldie! The navy background with splashes of colour is very flattering. I particularly appreciate the quality of fabric and workmanship, recommend highly.

Comfortable to wear

Initially I was going to return this, as the colour is not as online. It is more orange than the vibrant lilac tones in the pictures. However, when I tried it on, it hung nicely and was very comfortable to wear. It is wide for my waist, but I tried it with a belt and it looks OK. The waist is above my natural waist line and I would have ordered a tall one if there had been one to see if that helped. Overall though, I like the dress, despite what I have said!

Folktale dress

This is a lovely dress and I am very pleased with it. The only thing is last year i bought a few Sealsalt dresses, all size 12. I have had to buy this dress in a size 14 as the 12 was too tight on the bust.. I haven't put on any weight either. Other dresses this year I've tried this year have also been tight around the bust. Has Seasalt changed the fitting sizes this year? I measured this dress against a similar sytle I bought last year in size 12 and the dimensions are the same. Has Seasalt renamed last year's 12 as 14? I mentioned this to the assistant and she agreed she has found this year tighter around the bust to. Disappointing to have to buy a bigger size when no weight been put on! otherwise I love the dress.
