Great shape but...

I ordered a 14 and the size for me can up rather large the dress has a great shape but is made from lots of fabric and due to the nature of the fabric is really heavy. I thought hard about returning and sending for the 12 as loved the colour and cut but ended up just returning as felt the weight would irritate me

Not practical for a holiday

I like the style and ordered it for a holiday. It was delivered to the shop and when i collected it it was extremely creased when unpaacked and there was a great deal of fabric in the skirt of the dress (size12) I realised it just wouldn't be practical. to take on holiday so i returned it. I know linen creases but I find the heavier linen used by Seasalt crases too much to look attractive. I have another Seasalt linen dreass and I have the same problems with that anmd rarely wear it. . I'll stick to cotton in future.,

Lovely red dress

Gorgeous dress - lovely shade of red, deep pockets, swirly skirt. I'm usually a 12 but the 10 is plenty big enough.

Stunning and stylish dress

Over the last few weeks I have purchased two Seasalt dresses and this is my third. I absolutely love the feminine fifties style and I just keep falling in love with these dresses. This one is a delight, the colour is lovely and the neckline is flattering without being too low. I'm pleased that you make this in a petite size as a standard 12 would have been too big. Thank you but I must stop looking at your website; everything is too tempting.

Really lovely

As others have said, this is such a flattering dress. The photos are a good representation. The fabric feels like good quality, not flimsy, and the colour is as expected. I usually get Seasalt size 16 and this was perfect on that score. Looking forward to other colours and maybe patterns.

Lovely!

This dress is a lovely colour and cut. Very flattering. Can be dressed up or down. Good fit for size (I’m a 14) and length is perfect on me (5’9”). I think I will wear this for ever. What I need now is a matching tonal shrug or short cardigan for cooler evenings. Please Seasalt! ☺️

Please take a look at the Vanessa Cardigan in Ecru, it might be just the cardigan you're looking for!

Beautiful dress

Nicely made dress that fits well - not too neat so it is comfy for warmer weather. Material is nice and light but still substantial and colour bright but not in your face. Good length for a 5'8'' person - just below knee. I agree with the comments on using a belt. What is good is that many belts go with it - black, blue, tan, so you can match up with shoes if you are a picky as me re co-ordination!

Classic Linen Dress

Great summer dress in a glorious colour. Loose-fitting but ideal for those hot summer days. Petite length perfect as only 5ft 2in. Would definitely recommend.
Must compliment Seasalt on their packaging - no plastic bags!

Great day dress

Lovely lightweight material & a great fit if you get the right size. I had to go down a dress size - normally a 12, opted for a 10.

Delightful

A gorgeous dress, pure linen, wonderfully cut with a loose style that's perfect. I bought the petite size and the length is good for me. I will wear it and wear it, I'm quite sure. Of course it needs ironing - but that's linen for you. The colour is fabulous.

Another lovely Seasalt dress.

This is a beautiful dress with a very simple flattering style and the colour is simply delicious. It is a gorgeous deep soft true red. I got the regular length and it's much too long for me at 5 feet 3 inches tall. I should have ordered petite, but this isn't a problem because I'm going to shorten it and make a sash belt out of the piece I cut off. I bought a size 20 and it's a loose fit so probably I should have bought size 18. In my opinion this is such a flattering classic style that women of all shapes, sizes and ages could wear it and love it. I hope that this dress will be produced in other colours. too!

Perfect

I spotted this dress in the Guildford shop. I tried the 14 and 16. The 14 is a bit snug, but the 16 was just too big - to the extent I thought it was an 18! It’s a great dress & a flattering length on a 5’7”.

Cracker of a frock!

Feels wonderful, great fabric weight, exceptionally nice neckline, ooks good, lovely length (5'9"), fits like a dream and the waist is at waist level - just could not be better. And pockets ... swoon. I'm a 14-16 but normally try 18 dresses at Seasalt because the waists tend to be high and shoulders narrow. This is a very lovely and very wearable dress.

Disappointed

Arrived very creased, looked old. Faded, uneven puckered hem. Looked nothing like the on line photos. On the positive side It is a heavy quality linen but I was looking for a smart dress . So had to return.

Dear Maggieflowers,
Thank you for your review and feedback. The linen is garment dyed, so does have that lovely sun faded hue, however we're sorry it arrived creased. Our customer services team will get in touch.
Best wishes,

Excellent

I am a new customer to Seasalt and I have already bought a number of items this season. This is very unusual for me to be so extravagant! The quality of the fabrics and the workmanship are just great. And sleeves! And pockets! My particular favourites are the tunics. Although they are too long on me. The ones I like were not available in petite, so I have shortened everyone. Well done Seasalt.

wood dress

I am 5' and ordered petite. The length is just right for me. The fit is slightly large but will look fine clinched in with a belt or worn loose on warmer days. Too cold to wear it now so saving it for summer.

Beautiful dress

Fantastic colour, true to the photo, slightly roomy fit (I'm a 10 but wouldn't really want a summer dress to fit any tighter). Length for me (5'6") about same as shown on the model. Has two big slightly flappy pockets which I may cut out, doubt I'll ever use them.

Lovely dress

This is a lovely linen dress in a good weight linen that hangs well. The waist isn’t as fitted as it looks in the photograph , more a-line .If I had ordered a smaller size the shoulders would have been tight. Still loved it though , looking forward to some sunshine to wear it.

Well done seasalt, I love this dress with a nod to vintage. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so that I can wear it. I would imagine it’s a very versatile dress, great length colour and fabric. More colours please!!!

Perfect for me for the summer. Loose and comfortable but fits in all the right places, and a wonderful red.. I love pockets! If there were other colours in the same style I would be interested.

Wonderful Dress

Where to begin? This is an instant style-maker of a dress. I love all the beautiful linen in the skirt, the way it falls below my knees, the shape of the bodice, the neckline (not boring but with good coverage) and the colour! Pop it over my head and I'm ready for a summer's day or evening. The red is gorgeous, not loud but deep and interesting, and providing a perfect opportunity for a piece of interesting jewellery or a scarf. Pockets too!. The sleeves are just right. The buttons fasten nicely across my plentiful bust. I am no longer slim in the middle and of course if I were, it would be a knockout, but it looks very good even with an older shape, and I can't wait to see where this dress will take me. Well done, Seasalt.

Love it

I knew I loved this dress when I spotted it online but wondered whether it was actually "me" but ordered it anyway.
Thank goodness I did it's a lovely dress in a very nice colour with a very flattering calf length skirt and doesn't pull over the boobs as dresses often do on me.
Can't wait for warmer weather so that I can wear it and it is also coming on holiday with me later in the summer!

I love this dress

A lovely casual dress which I can see me living in throughout the summer. Soft and comfortable to wear. Great colour. I fall between a 12 and a 14. Chose the smaller size and it’s still a loose fit but perfect. Really happy with my purchase and very impressed that it arrived in a paper bag and not a plastic one. Well done Seasalt!

A really lovely dress but I"m a bit worried about the dye rubbing off

This is a really lovely dress. I bought it in a 10 petite and it's a good fit. I'm 5' 3" on a good day with a following wind... I could perhaps have got an 8 but I'm a bit busty and like to be able to move my arms without worrying about things gaping. I've given it 4 stars because I'm a bit concerned about the red colouring coming off on light underwear. The label says that some dye may rub off on lighter clothing and that bothers me. I certainly don't want to wash it yet as it looks like a bit of a challenge to iron. I hope the style appears in other colourways as it's a rather becoming dress for me. It has a lovely swishy skirt and a flattering neckline, being not at all too low at the front.

Absolutely gorgeous but......

This is a truly beautiful dress in a stunning rich deep red colour and I would have loved it to look equally gorgeous on me, but sadly I'm not the right shape for it and it looked very matronly and unflattering. For a taller, much slimmer person than me, this dress will look stunning!
