100% Linen

The easy, straight cut silhouette of our Sketch Pad Dress makes it perfect for laidback summer days. It's made from cool and comfortable linen, garment-dyed to give it a unique, sun-faded hue. With wear, the colour may fade further for a washed-out and worn-in look that we hope you’ll love as much as we do. This midi length, sleeveless style has a scoop neck and a removable waist tie so you can cinch it in at the waist or wear it loose. It's finished with a small patch pocket and side slits for ease of movement. We like it best with flat leather sandals.

Favourite summer dress

This is my new favourite summer dress! Purchased in the blue/turquoise shade for a summer wedding and complemented with a long, chunky necklace, it was smart, cool and comfortable. It didn't crease as much as I had feared. Style & colour were just what I had been looking for - thank you!

Just the ticket!

Lovely dress in fabulous kingfisher blue - just the ticket for this Mediterranean weather! Great quality linen. Easy to wear. Cute secret message sewn into the hem. Another favourite from Seasalt - thank you.

Cool, comfortable and well cut

The dress is roomy, a nice length (I'm 5'9") and really comfortable to wear. The linen drapes nicely and doesn't concertina. Also it is well cut, so the bodice doesn't slide to one side and reveal bra straps! The thin belt doesn't really work for me, though I have tried tying it behind instead of round the waist, but that's an irrelevance, as it's easy to remove. I would love to have this in some alternative colours.

Star of the summer

A brilliant dress, cool, elegant and comfortable. I've been wearing it dressed up for events and dressed down for everyday all summer. As other wearers, with the belt fairly loosely tied, at the back.

Classic

This un-fussy linen dress is a classic that will never go out of style. I liked it so much I bought it in both colours. I have deducted one star (anchor) because the belt loops snapped off or were already broken on three dresses I tried on, so it took a little while to get that right. I also ended up altering both dresses so they weren't quite so tent-like, which provided enough fabric to make some proper belt loops. OCD maybe, but I'm expecting to wear these for years, so now they are perfect!

Lovely dress

This is a great dress for summer! I already have the Coach House dress and several linen tunics of yours. The linen is a good quality and the dress a good length. I am an older customer and 5’ 7’ so perfect. I wear with the belt tied at the back to give a slight shape and accessorise with colour, pink scarf and pink shoes. Ideal for evening out. Keep up the great work Seasalt and the longer length dresses!

Sketchpad Dress

My first Seasalt purchase. A beautiful dress, so easy and comfortable to wear in the hot weather we've been having. I have it in both colours and prefer to wear it without the belt. Would love some more colours please, maybe a nice jade green?

Cool & comfortable

I ordered both colours as I couldn’t decide - and have kept both as it is a lovely dress. The linen is a good weight and the blue is a gorgeous colour. The dress is wonderfully comfortable in hot weather. I’’m a 10/12 and ordered 12 as I wanted it loose, but I think I could have got away with a 10; as another reviewer commented, there is a little too much fabric around the waist.

Love it!

I love this dress so much I have it in both colours. So easy to throw on and roomy (I am size 16 but think a 14 would fit perfectly) and cool. I tie the belt at the back as don't like things around my waste. Defo my favourite summer purchase this year

Lovely colour and material, but arm=holes too big for me.

Hedge your bets!

After reading the reviews I ordered sizes 12 and 14. The 14, my usual size, was a bit too big, but the 12 fitted perfectly, despite my slightly pear-shaped figure. The colour is a more saturated, almost teal blue, not the same as online.. I like the dress very much. Simple, stylish and easy to wear, lovely linen. Perfect for hot Greek summers.

Looked lovely on the hanger

I loved the style and look of this dress on the model and on the hanger in the shop, but it made me look like a sack of spuds, a real shame as it's in my favourite linen. I'm usually an 8 in Seasalt, but this came up a bit large, and it was just too much material round the waist. I think a 6 would have been fine.

Versatile Dress

I bought this dress in the dark grey - and the matching coloured boxy jacket in the same material. It is beautifully cut and fits well. Being an older customer of Seasalt, it looks super with a white T-shirt underneath (to hide those upper arms). With the jacket it becomes a smart day outfit, with jewelry it looks great for an informal dinner.

Beautiful, but arrived like a rag!

So nice to find a dress that's not blue, (you have so many of them Seasalt) I obviously ordered the grey version. However, the dress arrived so creased and crunched that I had to set to and iron it before I could even try it on! This has never happened before and I buy a lot of your linen clothes. I expect a few fold lines especially with linen but this was unwearable until ironed! That said, the dress is lovely and just what I want for summer, good fit and style. Please vary the colours more in your clothes though Seasalt, the blue shades are beautiful but I've had enough of them!

Dear seagirl,
Thanks for your review of the Sketch Pad Dress; great to hear you’re pleased with the style, colour and fit. We have a very robust feedback system in place, so rest assured I’ll feed your comments about alternative colourways and the excessive creasing to the relevant team for their future consideration.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Versatile

Loved the fit of this and as I’m short the length was ideal for summer wear. Jazz it up for evening with a Seasalt scarf or a jacket for workwear. Like others, I’d love another colour.

Gorgeous Summer Dress

Love love love this dress! I ordered the blue version and have had many compliments since wearing. I'm 5'9 and it falls just below the knee. Very easy to wear although I tie the belt around the back which I think gives a more flattering appearance. Would defo recommend.

Great blue dress

This is my first Seasalt linen dress, the colour is a beautiful blue, brighter than it appears on line. Perfect length and stylish. A great addition to my wardrobe and ideal for an upcoming hip,iday to Rome

Sketch pad dress

Delighted with my new purchase in dark cuckoo size 12. I returned original order in size 14 as I found it rather generous. As the belt is rather narrow I modified it and made into a long necklace with a hanging pendant.

Another great seasalt dress!

Got this this morning through the post. Lovely good weight linen so hangs well. I bought a 10 (my size) and it is loose but decided to keep it because I think the bust on the 8 might be too tight. I would size down if you want it more fitted and were smaller up top. The colour is beautiful. Great length for us taller ladies (I am 5'8). Tiny grump -I would have preferred two seam pockets instead of front pocket. The button is not needed on pocket. That's just my preference. Great addition to my Seasalt linen collection.

Lovely linen!

Gorgeous colour and an easy, classic cut.
Paired with a bright scarf this dress looks lovely. Such a classic style and in a longer length it is perfect for a taller woman.
Well worth the money!

Lovely dress!

Fab dress, love the longer length and side slits. Got grey colour which can be dressed up with bright accessories. Very useful item for summer days/evenings.

Gorgeous!

Beautiful colour - shore blue - and great design. I love the longer length (im 5'8") and although it's a straight cut the side slits give you room to stride. I'm a 12-14 and ordered the 14. It's a little loose all over but I think the 12 would be too small. Linen often shrinks a little on washing anyway. It doesn't gape round the arm holes either. I will tie the belt at the back to give the dress more shape without feeling trussed up but it will be just as nice worn loose on hot days (hopefully we'll get some of them...) I'm tempted to get the grey one too. It's a great price for good quality linen.
