The only problem with this dress is that I want to wear it every single day. People might get a little tired of seeing me in it.

Piece of Art

The dress is truly a work of art. The print is beuatiful. It is very unique and the colours are very complementary to my skin tone, eyes, and hair.

The dress fits as if it were tailored made for me. It is one of the most flattering dresses I have ever owned. In autumn, I shall say goodbye to my 50s and start a new decade. This dress makes my figure look as if I am 25 years old again! It is that flattering. (I have the size 10.)

The cotton material is very breatheable (perfect for my clime in the US of outrageously hot and humid summers into autumn months) yet it is not see-through as so many clothes are these days.

The cut and style of this dress is all that a dress ought to be. The arm holes are neither too large nor too small. There is no gaping at the arm holes or around the neck. I love that Seasalt truly understands women and adds pockets to its garments.

Since discovering Seasalt clothing (an a couple of Irish brands), I have stopped buying American brand clothing. The fit, styles, quality of material and craftsmanship are superior. (I only wish that the shipping fee to the US was not so steep, but such is life.)

This dress is perfect for a summer outing in town, a day at the office, a wedding or social gathering.

To say that I love this dress is an understatement.

Lovely dress just not for me

This is a lovely dress, but after two dresses (this and the Belle one) that both just make me look top heavy, frumpy and are far too long (even in petite, since SS make larger sizes longer - why?), I have accepted they just aren't for me.

The dress itself is lovely, albeit for £70, I would have expected a slightly more thicker material - in the light, this was somewhat see-through, AKA a Princess Di moment.

The dress in a size 14 fit, but it seems SS size up as I am more of a 16 - any other company a 14 wouldn't have fitted. so this is false vanity sizing, which I find with all SS clothing. Such as I have two size 14 SS rain coats and both are far bigger than a 14. My mum is an 18 in other shops and these fit her fine.

The other issue is petite lengths. Why they feel that for each larger size on the scale, they must add a centimetre or two extra? Aside from the obvious body difference between, say, a 6 and an 18, the length should remain the same. The body size should be accommodated for in the cut . This is the only company I've come across that does this. It's bad enough finding petite lengths that are right, but this is ridiculous.

Ignore the reviews of 'true to size', 'perfect fit' etc, and check out the size guides and compare with what you normally buy from other shops. If you are a 'true' size, you will find you will probably need to size down.

Overall, I like the ethics being SS, but find some items to be valued more than their truth worth. I appreciate you get what you pay for, that these are handmade, organic materials - trust me, I've paid more for high end designer, so cost isn't the issue here - but the fit is paramount, and this is where SS are failing.

Unfortunately, this is now another dress that will be returned. Don't let my review put you off, but if you are unsure, I would recommend going into store, or ordering two sizes for fit.

Thank you for your review of the Quick Sketch Dress, I'm sorry to hear that the sizing wasn't perfect for you this time.

If you haven't already done so, you can pop it back to us using the free post label enclosed in your parcel. We have a 'no quibble' refund policy so we'll arrange your refund just as soon as we receive it.

Our petite sizes are in proportion, for example the waistline may be a little higher on dresses. A larger dress size would appear longer on the hanger but once on the body the overall measurements would provide the same length across all sizes.

If it helps, we list detailed measurements on the size guide next to each garment, or if you prefer, our customer service team would be pleased to help with specific sizing queries. Call 01326 640075 or hop onto a chat at www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk

tummy problem

I really like the coulours and print of this dress. It is made from a light, nicely textured material. I tried on a size 14 in the shop and this fit perfectly at the top and the bottom, but sadly it was too tight at the band under the chest, because of my fuller figure. Going up one size meant it fit under the chest, but sadly it now was too wide at the chest and at the bottom. It should be a perfect dress for someone with a flat tummy, but my round tummy prevents me from enjoying this dress for myself.

lightweight great for your hols

This dress is by far my favourite dress of the summer, I have worn it several times on my hols in Greece it is casual and very lightweight and true to size. I love the design and those blue /green colours are gorgeous. I am also looking forward to wearing it for the rest of the summer and will be sure to pop into a Seasalt store whilst I'm on holiday in Cornwall to see if there are any similar styles.

Do come and visit our stores, and have a super holiday in sunny Cornwall!

Such a nice dress

Lovely cotton dress; beautifully made. I ordered it online and was delighted that it arrived in a paper bag with no plastic packaging!
This was my first Seasalt purchase and I will definitely be back for more.

Versatile and stylish

I am so happy that Seasalt are establishing a great petite range, and this dress certainly fits the bill for me. Beautiful light material that kept me cool in the Italian heat and resistant to creasing in the case. Possibly the most perfect summer dress I have ever worn and very flattering.
