100% Cotton

An easy-to-wear, short-sleeved swing dress in soft, slub cotton jersey. It falls above the knee and has a panelled, flattering design for a relaxed fit with lots of movement. Choose from signature yarn-dyed stripes with a V-neck, or a dynamic print with a scoop neck. Slouchy pockets complete the look. We love it with cropped leggings for a relaxed style.

Fab tunic

Got two of these tunic dresses. Soft jersey and a floaty style that looks great with leggings or crops. I sized down to a 12 after finding the 14 too baggy.

Great dress!

Perfect t-shirt dress. Lovely style and material. It is too short to wear on it's own as I am nearly 6ft tall but I love these dresses to wear with leggings for work. I love the pattern too.

Lovely dress

I love this dress and have ordered another one in a different print. It’s easy to wear over a pair of leggings and fits slightly on the big side. My only complaint is the neckline could be a little looser, it feels a bit puritanical being so high.

At last!

Love, Love, LOVE this dress! I wasn't sure if it would suit me and dithered for ages before trying it on because I was in love with the print as much s the dress and I didn't want to be disappointed. I was NOT disappointed. The fabric is lovely and drapey, the cut is full without being voluminous and the fit is perfect. Also it's SO comfortable to wear. Can't wait to buy more dresses in this line. #Love

I love this dress

I really love this dress, it fitted me perfectly and felt really comfortable. May have to treat myself to the two other patterns.
As with all my Seasalt purchases the quality is fantastic. Your sale staff are terrific and so very helpful.
The ladies in the Saffron Walden branch are great.

SO DISAPPOINTED

I love this style of dress; its relaxed fit has been ideal for use at work as a primary school teacher. Worn with leggings, it is comfortable and versatile yet can also look smart. I have bought a range of colours and patterns, in the Millpool dress form. Sadly the changes made in this version are no good for me. The sleeves are set in much wider than any other Seasalt dress I have bought (in various styles) The Millpool dress sleeves weresuitable for all shoulder widths. and most definitely mine!The neckline now has a wider border all round, rather than a T-shirt type border and I find that it ruches up when worn and feels more bulky. (This may also be a result of the broad shoulder line). The slub fabric is more flimsy and the design is not so full. As a result it does not hang so well. The pockets hang much more limply than with the Millpooll and stick out more. This is not such a good look, in my view. There have been far fewer of this style of dress introduced over the last year. l personally feel that the design department should reintroduce the Millpool design, alongside the Clear Light Dress and in lighter, brighter designs. Currently most of your dresses are waisted. The only other loose dresses are in linen (great for leisure) but they look mess by the end of the day. I'm SO DISAPPOINTED with the way this dress is for me; it's the first and last of this design I shall buy. PLEASE pas this on to the design team, in the hope that some improvements can be made.

Lovely comfy dress

This dress is sooo comfy and easy to wear, not only that it looks good too. The material is really soft as well , top marks sea salt.

Great tunic

Just love this tunic. I went down a size and it is still plenty big enough. Love the colour and the fact you can get it in 2 lengths. Another winner from Seasalt ❤
Fit: on the large side

Very flattering fit

I was a big fan of the Millpool dress, both the long and short sleeved versions, but in my more recent purchases I found the short sleeved version was rather loose fitting, and the long sleeved rather tight around the tops of the arms. However, this is a much better fit, nicely fitted around the neck and shoulders and hangs beautifully, really flattering. The fabric is a lovely quality and the pattern and colours true to the pictures. I'm 5ft 3 and the regular is the perfect length for me to go with leggings/jeggings, really pleased.

Returned

Liked the fabric and pattern but wasn't too keen on the colour - I think perhaps I would have preferred a different colour combination there seems to be a lot of green/blue in this collection. I think what made me return it was the rather high neckline would have preferred a scoop or v-neck.

lovely item

was very pleased with dress. I wear it as a tunic not a dress. The neckline is a bit tight is my only observation, if that design could be changed slightly, the item would be 100% perfect. Was also very impressed that item arrived in 100% recyclable packaging. You put other companies to shame in this regard.

Thanks for noticing the packaging.

We’ve been working hard to reduce our use of plastic packaging and have made many changes across the business. We've also removed all bubble wrap and plastic sticky tape from our packaging. This has eliminated 18 tonnes of single-use plastics a year from our business!

Best wishes,

Seasalt

Fabulous!

Wonderful dress. Great for us larger ladies. Hangs beautifully, looks good, skims all the lumps and bumps but is not a tent. Love the print. I'm short (5'0") it comes to my knees. Please, PLEASE Seasalt make this design as a tunic in shorter lengths for us tiddlers. I know there is a striped version as a tunic but it is also in green and blue plus your regular length tunics also reach my knees. Other brighter colours too please. Having said all that, this dress is fabulous and I love it.

Gorgeous and green!

I saw this whilst in the Canterbury shop recently and fell in love with it, so had to buy it. This could be worn as a short dress (I’m too self conscious) but I wore it with navy leggings and it looked really bright and pretty with them. I’m 5.5 and regular length was just about to my knees. The cotton is really soft and didn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Love these swing dresses

I absolutely adore this style of dress and have around 7 of these in my wardrobe now, in various colours and sleeve lengths. This is the first one with a short sleeve and I love it! Please, please, please make more of this kind of dress!!! The Mill Pool and Clear Light styles are so flattering for me, as a larger lady. More! More! More! :)

Love this!

I love this slightly updated style of the Short Sleeved Mill Pool Dress but please we need more pattern choices. There was a flower pattern in the brochure and a striped one online last week but none have been available to purchase which is hugely disappointing.

Lovely!

Like this dress very much. The photographs accurately reflect the colours of the fabric, the width is generous (which I feel will be cool in summer) and at 5' 6" the long length just reaches my knee. Would feel happy wearing it as dress or as a tunic with leggings. Have only just received it so not sure how it will wash, but have had no problem with other Seasalt clothes.

Love it!

I have several short sleeved Millpool dresses and was concerned I wouldn’t like this as much. I needn’t have worried, as this is even better. In my opinion, the set in sleeves give it a more flattering shape and I like the slub jersey material. The colours and pattern are also gorgeous. More colours please - I’m sure I could find some room in my wardrobe for them!
