Martingale dress

Lovely dress, the check design on the fabric has interesting ‘bloom’. I first ordered size 12, but found it rather too snug, so now I have it in size 14, perfect fit with and falls below the knee, delighted.

Creased and so difficult to iron

I have bought numerous sea salt dresses jumpers and tops and I have always been delighted. I bought this dress and noticed it was very creased in the shop. I thought it would iron. It is impossible to iron out the creases with the tied in lining and on the cool setting recommended. I feel it needs to be steam ironed but I don’t want to ruin it. It’s not worn, I’ve lost the recent in the house move 3 weeks ago and I am going to try and return it. I note nobody else has had this problem so I if anyone has any advice I’d be interested

Too long, again!

I am 5 ft 2 notexceptionally short. Many women over 50 are in my height range. Thus dress is too long for me it's bell my knees so back it goes. I really wish seasalt would make some different length options or some dresses suitable for shorter women as women in their 60s and 60s and older are a big audience for this clothing style. Pleeeese?

Issue with lining

I love this dress - colours and feel of soft cord are gorgeous but the lining is about 3cms longer than the dress the whole way around so sticks out when worn which I didn't expect for the cost. I'm outside UK so returns are costly otherwise I would send it back

Disappointed again

Bought one of these dresses last season but had to return it due to bald patches! Sadly this season’s version was much the same. Very disappointed. I question the quality of some of Seasalt’s garments...a general dumming down of materials & workmanship in my opinion.

Martindale rhubarb fine needle cord dress

This style always fits for my size 16 [sometimes others do not!!] Love the style the colour and the feel of the dress. I absolutely love it. No all set for the autumn / winter.

Lining hadn't been hemmed properly

I'm a big fan of Seasalt, but was disappointed by this dress. It looks just as beautiful as one would expect, and the pockets are great, but after I laundered it (at 30 deg as instructed, on a gentle cycle) the inner lining hung down below the hem. The lining hadn't been hemmed properly, merely ironed into a fold, and this fold naturally didn't survive the wash. I had to hem the lining myself, which I wouldn't expect to do for a dress which cost me £75!
