Absolutely gorgeous winter bloom fabric. Fits well and just about long enough to wear as a dress with tights (I'm 5'7). Would definitely buy another in a different fabric.

Too big at shoulders

I really like this dress and tried one on in the shop and was prepared to pay the fairly steep pipe ice but alas! I am a 14 bust but the 14 was tight across the bust. However it was also very baggy around the shoulders and neck . I'm 5'2" and a petite but with a standard sized bust. 14 is usually fine so I dint understand why this is such an odd fit. Agree with previous reviewer that the neck line is wrong . Shame.

Sadly not for me

I had coveted this dress in the Tjanting Leaf Marine colour for some time so am disappointed that it doesn't look right on me. If I'd been 40 or 50 years younger the length, finishing a good 2" above my knee despite my being only just 5'2", would have been fine, but on an older person it didn't look right! Also, the neckline was too low at the front. I tried it on over a rollneck t-shirt too, and although it looked better the length was still an issue and there isn't enough hem to let it down.

Reluctantly I'm having to send it back, but have still given it four anchors because it's beatifully made and a lovely soft needlecord. I liked the fine tucks on the bodice.

Christmas dress

Love this dress. Wore it on Christmas day with opaque tights and got several comments on how nice I looked :) I love the bright colours and it is a good fit.

Wagtail dress

Good quality and fit except for length, would be helpful if Seasalt provided a petite range. I'm 5'1" and will have to get this altered as its too long.
