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.

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.

Chywoone pinafore

I like the style and the soft material. I agree that it is a bit of a struggle to get on but once you're in, it is a really flattering shape that I don't find baggy at all. Size wise it's perfect for wearing with a t shirt under, my only slight concern is the length. I'm 5'6'' and this is much longer than my other Seasalt dresses/skirts, however it probably needs to be long in order to get the 'slinky' look. I'm sure I'll get used to it, especially as there a lot of longer styles around at the moment.

So happy, bought 2!

I've always shied away from buying a pinafore as I usually need a size 14 top and a 10/12 skirt. I loved the look of this dress, but decided to play it safe and order a size 14 because of the comments on other reviews. It was a lovely loose fit and extremely comfortable. As it was so "comfortable", I thought I'd risk trying a size 12. I was really thrilled when I tried the size 12 - it fitted like a dream! There's still room for a thickish top underneath. The style is really flattering, particularly on the hips.
So, did the size 14 get returned? Absolutely not! I decided that it's perfect for those days when you need more layers - I can easily wear my cosy Seasalt jumpers with it. Likewise, it will be great when it gets really hot and I don't want to wear anything too fitted.
Thank you Seasalt - yet another design triumph!

Love it

Love the shape and length. I'm tall, 5 feet 10 and length is perfect on me. Slightly shaped which means that it hangs well. Agree that it's slightly hard to put on.

Practical, Everyday Wear

Neat and versatile pinafore dress which can be worn to work or for evening with a glamorous top.

Lovely but the fabric is on the cheap side

Nice youthful fit and shape. Don't expect tailored fit, it's a relaxed pinafore. I love it but the fabric is not a good quality. Very easy to pull, and just not the usual Seasalter quality of fabrics.

Great addition to wardrobe

Very flattering style showing as a slim profile and lovely to see longer lengths available as not everyone wants to show of their knees! At 173cm it is below the knee and very comfortable and easy to wear. Great buy.
