I absolutely love this dress. I have three colors now---blue, green and the teal print. It is soft and comfortable and cool in the summer. the fabric is not too thin, so it doesn't need anything underneath. It washes well. I live in these dresses in the summer.

darker than expected
I had previously purchased this dress in two colors and I love it. It is great to wear to church or anywhere that jeans are too casual, but you don't really need to be dressed up, either. BTW, I am around 5'1" and this is mid-calf on me. It is a comfortably relaxed fit. I just ordered three more to take me into the summer. If you are only looking at petites and would like to see colors, you can see some of them on the listing for regular length. I know that monitors vary, but on mine two of the colors I chose looked almost pastel but they are actually almost jewel tone in person. Which is OK, I can still wear them. In fact I can start wearing them now and don't have to wait until spring/summer. The third dress is also darker, but the difference is not as much. Despite the color issues, this is still a great dress.

I've been buying these for years. The sizing and style is forgiving, not to mention convenient. I don't even need to unbutton these and just throw it on over my head. The fabric is soft after washing and dries well, but doesn't wrinkle even if forgotten for an hour or two in the dryer after it stops. The dresses work well for most of the year, as layering with a turtleneck and tights is simple in the winter, and loose enough by itself to stay pretty cool for most of the spring and early summer. In the fall, a light sweater or jacket works. I can wear the size "small" although I prefer the looser look in the bust area of the "medium". I'm just tall enough to wear either the regular or petite, at roughly 5'3". I have a 44" bust, BTW, and sort of an "H" shape now that I'm in my 60s. When a much older sister-in-law's poor health confined her to a wheelchair, I thought the forgiving fit and buttons all the way down would be perfect for her, so I sent her one for Christmas. My brother was pleasantly surprised that the petite length was available (she's 5'1") and dressing his wife was so much simpler for trips to her doctor. The grey paisley looked like lace without the danger of snagging, and we gave her accessories in her favorite colors to add variety and flair. I suspect my brother will be buying her other dresses in this style as well. I just wish it also came in "extra small" for some of my other (younger) female relatives. It is perfect for dressing in a hurry to answer the door for instance, and doesn't wrinkle if one succumbs to a nap on a rainy afternoon.
Formal Dress in soft T-shirt
This is a great casual/special occasion dress that feels life you are wearing your favorite t-shirt. It has a classic look, with the almost lacey grey paisley print, that will hide a multitude of "sins", i.e. spills, drips & belly. The empire waist makes a comfortable fit even while sitting. I have purchased several of the button-front knit dresses, but this is by far the best. I can't overstate that the print is so elegant that I can wear this dress to ANY occasion!!! Please make more "print" dresses. THANX LW

Neckline Needs To Be Higher, Neckline is TOO LOW CUT. And there is no way to alter the Neckline to make it better, and I don't like scarves. Please get these in HIGHER NECKLINES Petite and Full Cut.Would also prefer other colors that were no longer available.
Love this dress. This is like wearing your most comfortable
from Dayton, Ohio
I wear it when I am in a hurry. Very easy to get on. It is very comfortable. It would be nice if it was a little shorter.
Wear to church, meetings and casual dining. Very comfortable. Packable with no wrinkles. Washes and drys well. Good all purpose easy to throw on dress.
SO FAR NOT GOOD...
I had ordered this in a 3X thinking i wanted something for around the house to work in. To my surprise when it came the bag had a 2X yet the tag on the dress had a 3X. This dress was for someone 6 foot tall and a 5 or 6x. Had to call and cancel the one on backorder to get it in a 2X petite. I'll review again when the next ones come in Dec. (How sad having to wait 1 1/2 months for something... REALLY)
Lovely soft comfortable dress that can be worn to church or out to eat. Washes and dry's wrinkle free. I bought two different colors and love both. They will be worn a lot!
Empire Waist Dress
Wear it often to Work - Comfortable ALL day
I love my cloths.. I just have enough for now.. When I need something I will order again. but probley won't be for awhile.
from Birmingham, Al.
Love this style. Have it in about 6-7 different colors. Retired so not getting all dressed up every day but it IS nice enough to wear to SUNDAY SCHOOL AND CHURCH, other meetings, etc. CASUAL yet suitable for anything except really dressy occasions.
from Sacramento, CA
I ordered the dress because it was a color I didn't have.These dresses are so comfy to wear at home and not look so frumpy. I take care of my father in his home so I like to look somewhat nice and comfortable out of respect for him. It is nice to be wearing these dresses specially for the doctor appointments and for grocery shopping. I just needed to update my wardrobe.
from Pittsburgh, PA
I liked this dress so much that I ordered it in two colors, a blue-green print and a color called "Desert Red." The print dress gives every satisfaction and I love it, but the other one is disappointing. It came out of the wash with the fabric dye having run, leaving it spotty and uneven. Because the dress is stylish, comfortable and versatile, I highly recommend it, but I'd advise a purchaser to avoid the solid-color versions.
i would love this product in other colors

Comfortable and Practical

About Me Comfort-oriented, Practical, Retired, Stylish, Trendy
Very cute and would be comfortable for everyday wear, however, runs very big so I had to return it. It would be nice to see this dress in a more sophisticated print. The prints available are either too attention grabbing or look like Little House on the Prairie.
Love. This. Dress.
By J Purdy
I now have three versions of this dress (black, olive, and the latest, the cinnamon paisley print.) I can't say enough positive about it. It's a wonderful design. Comfortable enough to lounge around the house, but nice enough to be worn out almost anywhere short of formal attire required type places. I was a little worried about the print, afraid it would look too busy, but it actually works quite well. I think it's actually my favorite of the three.
Appreciated the length of the petite sizing. Product was as expected. Good Value.
the best dress ever!
from brockton, ma
About Me Comfort-oriented, Practical
This dress is very comfortable, launders well, is slimming because of empire waist. The colors are beautiful. It runs big so buy one or two sizes smaller. It can be dressed up with a shawl or shrug or jacket, and jewelry, or comfortable to hang out with friends. I own several, and will surely buy more.
from Ennis, Tx
Pretty, comfortable dress. Nice to put on after shower. Have worn it to go shopping too.
dress had a hole on the side
from Puerto Rico
The hole on the side makes it unwearable now that I know. Didn't return it because I saw the hole after I had worn it.
