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.

Found this bigger than my normal size : really baggy and shapeless and I think an unflattering mid to low calf length ( I'm 5ft 5) Sent it back as it also arrived with the zip broken, but Seasalt immediately refunded me without a quibble.

Perfectly fine

Very good – maybe a bit difficult to get on (!), but the length is just right for me, and the shape covers a multitude of sins. Several friends have said they like it.

Length all wrong

I missed this dress last season so was delighted to see it available again. It’s very stylish with only one issue - the length. I am 5 feet 9 inches tall and this is long on me, making it look a bit frumpy. I am keeping it but intend to have it shortened to knee length.

Lovely but too long!

I bought this last week and have just sadly returned it. I loved the fabric, cut and style etc but it was just too long for me (I'm 5'4''). Please make it in a shorter length that is just below the knee.

Love it!

So glad you have brought this back. i tried to buy it earlier, but size 16 sold out before I got round to ordering it. It is a very good fit. I am 5' 6" and a size 16. Perfect over Sailor T Shirt tops and shirts.. Cosy and comfortable. I spent last week on a city break and wore it during the day time every day,, just ringing the changes with different tops . Love the slightly longer length. Looks great with boots.

Over the moon with Chywoone

A great length and quite fitted and slinky for a pinafore dress. I am 5'8"and it fits me perfectly. It's very soft fabric, washes well and the lovely big pockets are a bonus. I've had lots of compliments and feel comfortable and good in it. I have worn it with fine cotton shirts, tops and t-shirts. It's a very versatile dress and can look so different with whatever I decide to partner it with. Your pinafore dresses in this length are always very popular and seem to sell out very quickly!

Not great

I had high hopes for this dress as I've not been disappointed yet by anything I've ordered from Seasalt, but on this occasion the dress didn't live up to expectations. All my clothes are a size 12 from SS, but this was a bit tight around the thighs and bottom, in addition it was a bit long, being 5'7", I was surprised to see this. Overall disappointing so it has been returned.

Dear Viv from Nottingham,

Thanks for your review; sorry to hear the Chywoone Dress wasn’t a good fit on this occasion. Due to variations in styles and design each garment has its own measurements, and these are published against it on the website.
Please call our friendly customer service team on 01326 640075 or pop onto Live Chat on our website at, where we’d be happy to give further sizing information if required, and hopefully find you the perfect dress.

Best wishes, Seasalt

Great but check measurements

I love this dress, I came looking for it after seeing it on instagram. My usual size 14 was out of stock so I looked at the size guide and got my measuring tape out to find the 16 would be just right. Lucky really as usually I would order a 14 without question. I haven't worn it yet but I think it's a really versatile piece that will be worn lots.

So flattering

Beautiful flattering dress, it's a bit longer than I've been wearing recently but this makes the line and silhouette very elegant, and slimming (important for me as I've gone up to size 18 recently). The fabric has a good weight with some give, so it's easy to move in. I think this is going to become my favourite dress this autumn!
