Linen Dress

I love this dress, great fabric weight and love the washed out look. The style is very flattening. I have one little problem with this although it’s mine, I will lengthen the dress, looking around right now for fabric I could add without looking too strange, my legs are not the best. I would like the option for longer length and it would be absolutely fabulous .

Good but not perfect

I liked this dress and it's a good addition to my wardrobe - a classic, elegant cut that can be dressed up or down. The length is great; I appreciate having stylish options for below-the-knee length.

One thing I don't understand is why the side zip doesn't go all the way to the armhole. Unzipping it just makes an opening in the side, which really doesn't help much in getting the dress on or off; in fact, it's a real nuisance to get it on or off. I suppose the opening makes it a little easier, but why not fully open up the side, as is more typical? (The same thing applies to the Trewinnard dress, which also puzzled me.)

The color of the dress is not quite as dark, and the texture not quite as smooth, as it looks in the photos online; this is not a problem (I like the color and texture), just a heads-up for knowing what one is ordering.

More colours please!

This is a great summer dress. It's a lovely shade of navy, I like the weight of the linen and it's a very flattering cut. And it has POCKETS!

I ordered the regular length and its just below my knees, I'm 161cm. Arm holes are comfortable and modest.

I would love to see this dress offered in multiple colours and even other fabrics like a stretch poplin.

need to upsize

I love the concept of this dress - almost pinafore and linen. I'm usually a seasalt 8/10 - however to get the looser look of the model on the picture had to up size to a 12 - think it would look a lot more elegant just an inch longer too.

I'm 5 foot 8

Cottage garden dress

I really like this dress, good fit good quality and I like the washed out effect of the colour black, this type of black is less harsh than a deep black, if you have a fair skin like mine. I would love this dress in another colour, more colours please!

Almost perfect

I’ve been looking for a classic well-tailored linen summer dress for some time and this one almost fits the bill. I think it might have been my perfect ‘little black dress’ for summer had it been available in a size 6 Regular instead of only Petite. I’m a size 6 who’s not petite in stature so the fit through the torso is not as flattering as it could have been. While it’s not possible to please everyone, I do wish that Seasalt would bring back the Regular length size 6 for those of us who are taller than 5’3”. Previously size 6s were available in both Regular and Short.

Good looking.

This dress has a lovely shape and is the perfect length for me. I bought a regular, I am 5ft 9ins and it comes to just below my knees.
However, contrary to others’ comments, I don’t think the linen is a good quality and it hasn’t been made well. Expensive for what it is.

Nice dress

Really like the simplicity of this dress and will certainly keep it but just a little disappointed that the colour is a much more washed out black than it appears in the photo. It has two lines across it where it was folded though I’m hoping they will disappear when pressed . Hope it doesn’t lose more colour after it has been washed. Still pleased with my purchases though I haven’t worn it yet and am very excited about the new petite range which this is part of .

Perfect summer dress

This is perfect in every way: petite length covers my knees (I am 5'3"); it is cut so that it doesn't show bra straps; the colour is a flattering slate grey/navy cross; the linen is lovely quality, a good weight, so hangs well; and it's got pockets! Brilliant. Other colours would be great, too.

beautiful dress

The linen in this dress is beautiful and fit well. The service behind this purchase was 5 anchor as well, very helpful in regards to discerning whether to size up or not. Thank you seasalt

Cottage Garden dress

I just love the dress, the fit is spot on for me. I ordered 14 petite. I would love to have it in a true navy blue, or even in a calico ecru shade. Often when seams overlap the zip can be difficult to open and close. After many years in the sewing trade, a touch of Vaseline can do the trick on both tracks of the zip. Likewise lead pencil for metal zips.

Lovely!

I ordered this dress a few days ago having fancied a pinafore-type dress for a while and already loving Seasalt linen and am so pleased with it! The 16 petite fits perfectly (I'm 5' 4" and normally a 16) with a lightweight layer underneath. It'll be great in the summer with just a cardi over. The linen is soft and, as with all Seasalt linen, will only get better and softer with time. Could we have this in a few more colours, please!?
