didn't fit me

Lovely colour and material but top was too boxy for me, and bottom unflattering as pockets stuck out. I took it back.

orchid dress

This is an easy to wear, comfortable summer dress which looks good on. Like all linen it creases easily but it irons well. I am more than satisfied with my purchase.

Orchid dress green

Has become very quickly an old best friend. It arrived folded a bit oddly and so one side stuck out strangely, but knowing linen I knew this would drop out. Bigger around than expected, but having said that, a smaller size would not have gone over my shoulders, so a hidden zip would be good, but again having said that, now worn in it feels perfect and I would not change a thing. Obviously models are taller, which sucks, cos it does not give a true representation of how it looks on a normal height person, where the waist should drop! It truly is SO comfy and LOVE the colour, passionate and earthy, and that plain bygone era feel, period era and romantic and zero fuss, feminine without being girly, it's womanly, a word not used enough. Personally love it and love the thickness, no transparency,! I'm in love.

Fabulous

As delighted with this dress as I am with the same design in the teal cover that I bought first. It is a brilliant fit and length is perfect for me at 5’2” and the sleeve length is great. Would love a rust colour as well 👍

nice dress

I love this dress. It doesn't look much when it comes out of the bag but its lovely on. I bought the green, the colour and neck line are very flattering. Its a dress you can wear with sandals or tights and boots in winter. It does seem big, or maybe I just ordered the wrong size. I sent the first one back and ordered a size smaller which is perfect.

Lovely, but too big

I love the colour & it's very comfortable; I'm a size 8 often 10 (never, ever a 6!)& the size 8 in this dress is very big... not too bad over the shoulders or top, but volumous at the waist & hips so it really isn't very flattering if you are relatively slim.... unfortunately I think I'm going to have to send it back.

Perfect

This was such a perfect dress I immediately ordered one in the green which I am equally delighted with. It is smart and stylish yet informal at the same time. It can be dressed up or down for different occasions. It feels comfortable to wear. I love the sleeve length

Just Lovely

I already had this in green and just had to have the blue too, I love this dress. It has a relaxed, loose fitting cut but is flattering and doesn't swamp the figure. They are my absolute favourite dresses and I'd get them in more colours if they sold them!

Sadly disappointed

I had this tunic in both colours last year and it was my favourite dress which I wore more than anything else. I was really excited to see it back this year in two new colours. I ordered both and eagerly anticipated their arrival.
Unfortunately I found the linen to be thinner than last year. Last year it felt a nice heavy weight which felt quite special when wearing it. This year it felt thinner and similar to a linen you would expect from a lower end store. The fit was different too and I found it difficult to get on and off, and it didn’t hang as well as last year. I measured it against my others and this years is a good two inches smaller in width.
I may try a larger size but am not convinced with the weight of the linen unfortunately.
Disappointed as Seasalt is now one of my favourite shops!

Summer staple

I would normally think that the waist on this dress is waaaay to low (I'm 5'3”, size 14) but I'm pregnant at the moment so it actually fits wonderfully as an empire cut and I don't have to buy awful polyester maternity clothes. Despite the drop waist issue, the colours are PERFECT and the sleeves are lovely and roomy. Gorgeous heavy fabric which breathes beautifully. Just spent a week on holiday in plus 30°C temps and this dress was still my staple. I even wore it hiking with a pair of shorts underneath and trainers and it looked cool. I plan to wear the teal one to my friend's wedding later in the year as it's easy to dress up or down. My only fear is that with such a low waistline, when I'm no longer pregnant it will cease to look elegant and look a little frumpy. I've not had much luck with seasalt dresses cause they also seen excessively long with low waistlines (a couple inches below natural waist) wide in shoulders, and narrow in arms. I guess I'll get to enjoy it for this summer, anyway!
