Lovely dress

I bought the Seamstress dress with poppies and I absolutley love it! The fit is really good, and it has pockets. I have worn it to work with a top underneath, and now with tights and a cardigan. I plan to wear it to a bithday party soon. I bought size 12, fits perfect. I'm usually between size 10 to 14 depending on the brand, but in Seasalt 12 fits perfect. Next time I'll try a petite if it's available. Thank you Seasalt for all your lovely wearable dressed, so glad I found you!

It shrank

Beautiful pattern and loved the style, one wash at low temp and the waist was up at my rib cage, not happy.

Lovely dress but poor fit

I so badly wanted to love this dress as it has all the elements that I love in a dress; fitted top, but loose enough to be cool, gorgeous print (Baltic circles) and lovely soft, great quality cotton.
Sadly the fit was all wrong. As others have said, it is quite high waisted so it emphasised rather than hid my less-than-flat stomach,. I might have lived with this as I do really like the dress, but the reason I ended up returning it was the fact that the arm holes are much larger than the photos appear to show and gaped badly showing my bra - not an attractive look. Maybe this style just works better for a larger busted woman - or maybe I just got a slightly less than perfectly cut dress; I’m not sure which.

Lovely dress - just didn't work for me

I ordered this dress in size 10 regular, which is what I usually wear from Sea Salt. Sadly, it didn't quite work for me - I am a little taller than average so the waist of the dress wasn't in the right place and the zip wouldn't close. But it is a lovely dress and I'm sure would fit other ladies very well.

Lovely but a little small

I bought both dresses. Beautiful fabric but the 14, my usual size was a little tight so I returned and reordered the 16. The dresses are lovely and would be even more perfect if they had pockets..

Pretty dress

Lovely quality dress in light cotton. The poppy print is pretty. Fit on me ( standard 14) was good. I didn’t keep this dress only because I preferred the Merthen dress which was slightly better for a formal occasion but it would make a lovely summer day out or party dress.

Bright lovely colors

This dress was my first order with seasalt cornwall. I compared the measurements to another cotton dress of mine to be sure to choose the right size and indeed 12 was a perfect fit for me.
The print is made of lovely bright red flowers on a light grey background, making the fabric not transparent which is very practical.
It is long and wide enough to ride a bike (regular length for 163 cm), but there are no pockets.
Very good with these high temperatures.

Nice cut, too small

I’m a 12 in dresses, 10 in tops. This dress was tight around the middle and the color was not as bright.

Seaside dress as depicted

Bought this for my daughter who lives right by the coast, & it fits her (a curvy 1950s hourglass size 10) perfectly
The fabric is wonderful light cotton & the colour clear but not too vibrant
& she loves it both for the beach & elsewhere
It is summer fun in a garment

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.
