I love this dress. I ordered the oar colour, unusual for me but looks lovely. The fabric is soft and does not crease overly as some linen does. I am 5ft 1 and the style is fine on me and very comfortable. It will be an autumn staple with Navy tights.

Lovely transeasonal dress

Lovely colour and fit. I bought it with the everyday scarf and I will be wearing it regularly in the NZ summer.

Love even though it's too big!!

I love this dress and was sad not to see it in a size 6. However having dressmaking skills means I can alter the size 8, but of course this option is not open to everyone. Liked the fact it came in a strong paper bag instead of the usual plastic, well done.

Elegant and a neat easy wear.
I am 5ft 4 inches so I found the length below knee perfect.,covers aging knees! Truth be told I am definitely a 14 bust size but SeaSalt do come up generously and I find that Size 12 is a perfect fit.
Not washed yet but as long as instructions followed can see no problems although any linen I tend to use hand wash cycle on cold..

waaaayyyyy too long

I really liked the look of this dress but as usual it is waaaayy too long. I am 5ft 2 not that unusual for a 60 year old but seasalt dresses are all made for people who are 5 ft 8. The thing is, many women of my age are my height, and we are the prime audience for seasalt so why oh why oh why dont you make a short length?

No size 6???

Beautiful dress in two wonderful colours, but as with so many of your garments there is no size 6 available! This is already a huge dress - I tried the 8 today and was swamped. I would likely have purchased both colours if I wasn't excluded based on my size. Please Seasalt, offer a 6 as standard!

wild orchid

I purchased the 'oar' burnt orange colourway in my usual size 14 and it fits beautifully, I'd say the sizing is just right for an easy fitting dress. The curve of the waist seam really flatters. On 5ft5 me the length is just on the knee. The lovely quality linen has been cool and comfortable on hot days this summer and I wore last week on a milder day with leggings. Will see me well into autumn, I'm planning to layer with a grey cardigan and ankle boots. I really want the blue colourway too (hurry up payday!) x

Fossil dress

Am in love with all things linen and this dress just hits the mark. It is comfortable, modest and easy to wear. Wear it with cropped leggings and will be useful when the weather cools with t shirt underneath. Quality of the linen is just perfect for me so a big thank you to Seasalt you have made this customer sing!

Lovely dress

Lovely dress. Size 16 fitted perfectly, just below the knee which is exactly the length I like ( I am 5' 4"). The oar colour is beautiful. Just really disappointed that the heat wave is over for the moment. Can't wait to wear it!

Can't fault this dress

I bought the Oar colour from a Seasalt shop. Although it is generously cut, it does not look huge when worn and is very flattering. I'm really not a fan of in-line pockets as they can spoil the look of a garment, but these are beautifully made and sit well. I love the material and the colour and have had soooooooo many compliments on the frock. I will be able to wear this right through the seasons. So I bought another in Fossil!!!
