How could I not try this dress when they show it in the catalog on a pregnant lady!? I really wasn't loving it based on online pics, etc... but I thought I'd give it a try as a ride-a-long on my last sale order.
First off, if this was the muted grape color (that I lovey), I would keep it. I wanted this to be a potential option in place of the Jessie Cotton dress (review and pics here) in muted grape, but, alas, it's not.
This color just reminds me of cotton outfits I wore when I was a little girl ... something just not doin' it for me with the color. The fabric is more substantial than I had imagined from the images online ... I still don't LOVE the v-neckline...
I think something about it just looks cheap.. maybe it's just too thin. Also, the length is too long, but I'm used to that and it's an easy fix. Lastly, the elastic band at the ribcage annoyed me even for just the couple minutes I had it on. (do I sound like an irritated pregnant woman yet? hehe)
Bottom Line: This dress runs large... I have a feeling there are a lot of ladies out there wishing this came in an XXS. I would keep this if I NEEDED a cotton dress, it's not bad, just nothing special. I still like and feel cuter in the Jessie dress in muter grape (even though it's a bit see-thru) so this one is going back.
