100% Cotton

A relaxed fit pinafore dress with a studiowear feel. We've made our Chywoone Dress from a beautiful, textured cotton twill, yarn-dyed to give it a denim effect. It falls to mid-calf and has adjustable straps, a split at the back for movement and two angled side pockets. We think it looks lovely with a dash of Breton stripes, or worn over one of our Larissa Shirts.

I Love this Dress

I bought this with the Larissa shirt and delighted with the quality of both. Comfortable and versatile for smarter or casual look. I'll get a lot of wear from this dress

great dress

I had looked for a pinafore dress for a while, but everything was either too short or too tight looking, this is perfect great fabric, nice length, loose fit, super stylish, great with strippy tee's, I'm not skinny or tall and it still looks great, very comfortable too, would love a navy version .

Lovely dress

Ordered this dress and received it quite quickly.
I love this dress! the fabric is softer than I expected and the fit is flattering. I will get a lot of wear from it.
However it was too long (I'm 5ft 2 inches) so I took it up by 6 1/2 inched.
Much better length now coming to just under the knee.

Every once in a while a dress comes along that you don’t mind paying full price! This is that dress! Fabric is lovely, fit is flattering and people make comments of how they love the dress! I found that sizing is accurate and of high quality. What are you waiting for..... :)

lovely dress

Love this dress. Would have scored it 5 but it was a bit too long for me, didn't want to send it back so I shortened it myself.

Left out again

I was SO excited to see you’d restocked this, and hoped beyond hope that you’d extend the size range, but no....i’d Love to wear this. Love it, and had bought one when they first came out. The 20 was a little too fitted for me sadly, this was disappointing as both on your size chart and the product measurements listed this should have been a relaxed fit. Sadly, it wasn’t, it was more Jessica Rabbit wiggle dress than the hip indie mum on the school run look I was after. Sigh. If you had extended the size range however I think the 22 would have looked superb, despite the fact of being much rounder than I am tall. Please Seasalt, don’t tease with ‘up to size whatever’, and then only actually stock the full size range on the more everyday/less directional pieces. I already have plenty of leggings and tunics. This short fat girl needs a Chywoone dress in her life too!

Terrible fit

On a positive note, lovely material and general idea. However.... I bought both a size 10 and 12 to be sure of a good fit. The size 12 was incredibly wide and baggy across the bust, and I simply couldn't get the size 10 done up - it was like a straitjacket! So disappointed.

Great casual dress

Lovely soft fabric, generous fit and although it is long it is not too long - great with boots now or sandals in warmer weather. Love it.

Nice dress, pity about the sizing!

Checked the size chart - ordered a size 14 - it was enormous & too long. Sent it back, ordered a size 12 - it was too big around the waist/hips & still too long! I think a size 10 might be a little tight around the bust & fit on the waist/hips, but I paid for next day delivery for the size 12 and I'm not prepared to pay again and find it doesn't fit!
I thought the colour, dark indigo, was lovely, but felt the material was a little soft and perhaps wouldn't be very hard wearing.
I noticed another review saying the purchaser would be having the dress shortened and I think it would be a great idea to have this dress in two lengths. I'm 5'7" and it stopped right in the middle of my calf above the slimmest bit of ankle - not the best length for me. Great for someone shorter who wants a maxi pinafore though.
I usually buy Seasalt in John Lewis or when I'm on holiday and have always been happy with my purchases, so this is a disappointment.
