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!

Disappointed

Bought this because I so loved the purple one last year. It is gorgeous but - the linen is very stiff in comparison and it is a little smaller all round. I have kept it as I love the style & colour but I don’t think these changes were improvements on an already lovely dress. Sorry to moan!

Lovely dress

I really like this dress and I think I'll be able to get lots of wear out of it. I like how it sits on me. The fabric has a nice weight and feel to it and the style is very versatile and can be dressed up or down. The blue colour is gorgeous and I have already thought of several things I can wear with it. However, as it's linen, it does crease badly so worth thinking about if you wanted to be crease free for the whole day I suppose.

Dear Wismum,
Thanks for your lovely review and feedback.
To reduce creasing on this beautiful natural fabric we suggest hanging the garment up to dry whilst it's still quite wet. The creases will then drop out more naturally. Only use a slow spin cycle on your machine so you don't over dry it before hanging. We do hope this helps but as always, we have a 'no quibble' return policy.
Best wishes

Lovely casual dress

Ordered this dress in 10 and 12. I'm keeping the 10 although it is a little snug on the bust area (I am ample in this area), so hope it doesn't shrink in the wash!
The linen fabric is very organic looking and the green has a blue shade when you look closely.
I am only 5'.3" but I have a long body and short legs hence the hem is just past my knees, which I think is right for this style. I already want to wear it all the time. Wish I had seen the purple one!

Wild Orchid Dress

I ordered this dress in Mid Teal, in a Size 14. I am 5'4" and the dress was just below my knees, which is what I had hoped for. The colour is gorgeous and the linen fabric is light and comfortable. I must admit that I was worried when I discovered that there wasn't a zip, but the dress went on without a problem and was a loose fit as described. Pockets always please too.

I love this dress - it’s a great length sitting just below my knee (I’m 5’5”), lovely fititting and great 3/4 length sleeves.

Will wear for work in the summer.

Fabulous Linen Dress

Superb quality and weight to the linen fabric. The style is relaxed and flattering and extremely comfortable to wear. I love both colours so much that I have just bought the teal one as well (£10 off too good to resist!). I have broad shoulders and ended up buying one in size 8 and one in size 10 to get a good fit across the shoulders.

Lovely green wild orchid dress

Love the colour and style of this dress. Sadly my usual size 8 is too big all over. I know this is meant to be a loose fit but because I'm short and petite it looks as if I'm wearing hand-me-downs. I love it so much I'm thinking about keeping it and altering it although might not be easy as not just the length. Size 6s please Seasalt if your sizing is getting bigger?

Thank you for your review of the Wild Orchid Dress, but I'm sorry to hear that the sizing wasn't perfect for you this time.

We make a number of our garments in a size 6 now. Select the category that you'd like, for example: 'Dresses and Tunics' and then search by size.

The Cottage Garden Dress is linen and available in a size 6, it might be just perfect?

Great fabric and fit

There are a lot of things I love about this dress. It is made from a quality linen fabric. I bought the mid teal colour which is a bright but not a harsh teal. I am 5’ 2” and size 10 or 12 depending on the cut. I bought this in the 10 because it flows slightly loosely over the hips in a flattering fit and the 12 would be a bit big. The knee length is just right for me. also really like the simple 3/4 sleeves - not always easy to find in summer styles despite many of us not wanting bare arms all the time!

This is one of those garments which you can wear anywhere ... I've worn it twice now. Once with flat brogues and a scarf for a casual outing and once with heels and statement necklace for a social event... both times I had compliments. The colour is lovely deep and rich. A wardrobe classic

Fabulous Dress But Not For Me

Bought in the gorgeous Mid Teal colour in size 12. The linen is very good quality and the style casually elegant. I am usually a Seasalt size 14 in tops and size 10 skirts. The size 12 was a perfect fit on the shoulder and waist seams but sadly the bust darts were in the wrong place for my full bust. Size 14 would have been too big across the shoulders and around the waist and hips. Very sadly had to return.

Great Dress

Yet another super linen dress from Seasalt. I love this dress and cannot wait to wear it, The style is flattering and modern but still looks good on a more mature bod. Seasalt can sometimes be generous in their sizing , I ordered size10 and 12, but kept the 12 as I think that this style looks better as an easier fir. The green is a beautiful colour, dark but not drab .

Stylish easy to wear dress

This is a lovely green dress which falls on my knee. I am 5 ft 7. It is comfortable yet stylish. It does crease but that is inevitable with a linen garment. I think I will get lots if wear out if it.

Puzzled.

I bought this dress in a Seasalt shop without trying it as I have the purple one from last year and I love it. However as I went to wear it when I got home it was a very bad fit and at least 3 inches smaller all round. My wardrobe is a good 75% Seasalt as I find the sizing extremely reliable, but in this case I’m so disappointed. I wish I’d read the reviews and saved myself 2 trips, one to buy and the second to return.

Just loved this dress. I bought a size 16 in verte. I'm usually 16/18 in dresses but this is just right and exactly what I hoped for - good length and easy to put on and take off.. I couldn't wait for warmer weather so I'm currently wearing it with a long sleeved tee underneath. I've not washed it hence the 4 stars

Almost perfect

I loved this dress last year and was very pleased to see it back. However I totally agree with a previous reviewer; last years Fossil and Oar in size 14 are wonderfully comfortable but this years Verte size 14 is definitely less generous and doesn't feel as nice. The colour was also not quite perfect as I expected a pure dark green but it is more of a sea green in reality. I have decided to keep the dress but if I had tried it in store I would probably have opted to size up to a 16. It is still lovely though and if you could make a charcoal version (please) I would be deliriously happy!

Lovely but...

I have this dress in last years Orange and Purple and love them. I got the two new Verte and Dark Teal ones but although I love both colours, the fit feels slightly different/narrower around the middle and they don’t hang as well on me as last years. My shape and size hasn’t changed either. Sadly had to return them.

Almost

The purple is rich, the linen beautifully soft and it's a lovely style so I had to have it. I do wish you'd do longer lengths though. If it was below my knees it would be perfect. You don't often seem to cater for those of us who are 5ft 8 and above.

Wild Orchid dress

I am really delighted with this linen dress so much so I’ve got it in the green and blue. The fit is perfect I ordered a size 14 and as I’m quite a petite 5 foot small, the length is just right for me in my 70s. As always with linen garments creasing is natural so when you sit down smooth out the back skirt to avoid creasing.

I bought this as an afterthought because I love the colour. But I'm 5 6 and very curvy, nothing like the model, and didn't think it would suit. But how wrong. The style and cut is amazing. It looks and feels great. If your thinking about it do try it. I am delighted.

Quality comfort

This is a lovely well made dress in a heavy quality linen, The burnt orange colour is rich and subtle not bright and perfect for Autumn.
I found the fit very loose and shapeless despite the seaming like an artists tunic and not like the fitted design shown on the model, but it hangs well because of the fabric and feels easy and casual. I decided to keep it and I am sure I will wear it often with leggings and flat boots.

Beautiful

I usually sit between the 16 & 18. With this i bought the 16, and it is perfect, and comfortable. The cut is superb, the mauve colour darker than in the photo, which means it looks even better and oh so elegant. And, I don't look pudgy as can occur with similar types of dresses. It has been cut with a slight angle that's hard to describe but does wonders for the figure. The sleeve length is perfect and it even has pockets. Best of all, it is linen & will be a staple. I wish we could get it in other colours, or a nice woollen fabric.
I love it - do yourself a favour and buy it while you can!

Favourite dress

This is my favourite dress. Ever. The purple colour is gorgeous and is subtle enough to act as a background colour for loads of shades. I'm normally a 14 in dresses in order to accommodate my somewhat ample bust. However, I sized down to a 12 in this style, which meant that it fitted so much better everywhere else. Oh joy! This dress is so comfortable to wear and is very flattering. I know it will get a lot of wear over the next few months. Thank you Seasalt!

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?

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

Am in love with all things linen and this dress just hits the mark. It is comfortable, modest and easy to wear.

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!!!

STUNNING!

What a fabulous dress! I was hesitant at first, I have so many of your linen tunics and dresses in a straight shift dress style that I was dubious about whether the waist-line on this dress would suit me. However I find it extremely flattering; I love the style, length of sleeves and hem and certainly the gorgeous violet colour. I bought the scarf the model is wearing to go with it and they are my favourite outfit at present. Very happy Seasalt!

I thought this dress would be perfect in the hot weather: linen, sleeves just the right length, not too short (I'm 5'4" and I like below the knee at least). The fabric is lovely, a really pretty shade of blue. Sadly, although the top and waist fitted nicely, it was curiously baggy under the arms - looked very odd and had to go back

Kiki dress for the win!

I knew I had to own this dress as soon as I saw it on the website. I loved the style, the colour. and I knew I'd love the linen. If only I had a talking cat to complete the look ^_^ (For those who haven't seen much Ghibli, this dress looks just like Kiki's from Kiki's Delivery Service)

Good in parts

I love the fabric and indigo colour and have decided to keep the dress as I mostly like the cut, but the size was wrong. I'm definitely a 12 (looked like a sack) and it was much too big so I had to return and get a 10. The volume in the skirt is also unflattering on me so I'm going to take it in.

Love this dress

Lovely colour, generous cut to keep me cool on hot days. Nice quality linen so should be able to dress up or down, and a simple classic style that I'll be able to wear for years. Exactly what I hoped it would be.

Great fabric

I wanted to love this dress but decided to send it back as the linen was a little too heavy weight for what I needed right now. The colour would no doubt lighten with washing, which I think would be perfect. Just not quite what I wanted.

Nicely Surprised

I was in two minds when ordering this dress, as it looked a little long. I was right, but it was so lovley I decided to keep it anyway and have it shortened. The orange colour is gorgeous and perfect For transending the seasons. The fit it great too, Im between a 14 and 16, and the 14 was a super fit. I thought the gathering might add a few pounds, but actually its quite flattering.

Magical

Magical purply wild orchid colour. JUST what I was looking for. Superb on hottest of days - wore to Potfest and felt free and relaxed. Will be just as wonderful on cooler days with leggings/tights/tee shirt. Already admired. Excellent quality linen too. Thank you Sea Salt.

Lovely feminine dress in

This dress is a flattering feminine style. The Fossil colour is darker than the in the picture but it is still a very nice colour. I’m a size 12 and I bought a size 12 and this fits well. The linen material is lovely and I’m looking forward to wearing this dress.

Perfect!

Lovely dress. Subtle colour. Good fit, I normally buy clothes between sizes 10 and 12; size 10 was perfect for me as I am a typical 'pearship'. Usual good quality linen.

Another beauty

Wonderful burnt orange colour. Perfect fit, and true to size. Slightly too long for me, so I will have it shortened by a couple of inches, as I would prefer to wear it as a tunic. Lovley quality linen. Debating whether I can afford the inky one as I already have bought the moss tunic!

Superb linen

The linen is superb quality, soft, flowing and the colour is original. Already tested in hot weather...the dress is just perfect. I am a regular customer and thank you for another great design and garment!

Utterly Charming!

This is the sort of dress I am always on the lookout for but never find. I think it is probably perfect! The linen fabric is of a very high quality - substantial but beautifuly soft. It is very comfortable to wear and I find the length just right for me, knees just covered (I am 5ft 6in) I usually wear size 12 Seasalt tops and size 14 dresses and skirts (typical pear shape) but I exchanged the 14 I ordered for a 12 which fits perfectly. I have been told this dress is “utterly charming” and I love it!

Great!

I sent for this dress in the burnt orange colour and it's fabulous. Really good quality linen and the colour is gorgeous. I will be shortening it a little as I want to wear it as a tunic but that's no problem. I also sent for the oceanfront tunic in moss but that is equally as good. I was supposed to choose between them but it's an impossible task - oh dear!!!

Unusual and graceful

This is a lovely dress, unusual and graceful. Flattering neckline and easy fit. Good quality linen with sufficient weight and flex in it to hang well and resist creasing. Wonderful, complicated colour - 'fossil' is an inky, dusky dark purple. Seasalt has just the best colours of anywhere! I hope that there will be trousers in the same fabric.

Wonderful dress

Yet again another gorgeous dress in linen of unbeatable quality. The colour is slightly more "inky" and definitely deeper than the website shows but I imagine with a couple of wears and washes it will change to the more lighter tone shown on the site. I'm a regular 18 hourglass with pretty broad shoulders, and am always conscious of tightness across my back in garments. but this fits like a dream. The sleeves come to a couple of inches below the elbows and are a perfect width, not too tight, not too loose. At 5'8" the hem just hits my knee and as I don't like to subject random strangers to a glimpse of my knees I will wear leggings. The pockets are perfect and although they initially seem to make the dress "hippy" with wear they soften down. Love it, looking forward to more colours to add to my growing collection of Seasalt linen.

Delighted

Love this dress! The colour is just a little bit bluer than the pictures suggest, but it's still very purple. I'm a biggish 14 (16 on a fat day) so I ordered the 16, and it fits just as I'd hoped, with a bit of 'wiggle room' for warm days, and space for a thin top underneath when it's cooler. As I'm only 5'6", it's a bit longer on me than on the model - it hits just below my kneecap, but I'm happy with that. Lovely quality linen - my favourite fabric - easily up to Seasalt's normal high standards, and with charming little details like the notched cuffs, and (YAY!) pockets!
Thank you Folks - another winner xx

Disappointed

So disappointed. I had been waiting for this to come in ever since the preview pictures, (hurrah purple!) but sadly the Fossil is more of a dark purple grey in colour than it looked in the pictures. It also felt quite large in my usual 14 and the gathers at the waist and the pocket position seemed to made my hips look a good few inches larger than they are., so I looked very pear shaped (which I am not - I am a 14 top and 12 bottom). Going back.
