Very me!

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

Very small

I bought the purple one last year and it’s perfect, this years one is very small,
It’s at least 4 inches smaller around the waist , very disappointing
I feel this years sizing is totally different to last years , I also bought the stone worker top which I couldn’t even get over my head

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.

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.

So pleased

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.

Love it

Bought the purple in sale so a good buy. It is a loose fit but like it. Will be nice in summer if hot being a looser fit. Did try in store during summer and not sure, but just loved the purple shade.

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.

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!
