I chose this dress because it was corduroy (a material that I love), it was a good length to be worn as a tunic, and it was offered at a great sale price. I got the spice color, which is muted, not bright. I've worn it belted over wide-leg dress pants, and unbelted over trimmer- leg dress pants. It would also be great over jeans, jeggings or leggings. It's a bit short for tights in my opinion, but I'm 5'7"" and a size 16-18. It fits close or the body but is not tight. I've washed & dried it twice now and it comes out beautifully. I love it and my husband said it complements my figure. Great buy! Even pinned it on Pinterest.
Inconsistent sizing, poor quality control
I like this dress but have had issues with sizing. I bought 2 dresses, in sizes 10 and 12 as I wasn't sure which size would be best. I'm out in Australia, but am OK with the costs involved in sending items back if buying/trying two ensures a good fit. I first tried on the 12 as it happened to be on top in the box. It was overall loose, however the sleeves were slightly tight at the bottom. For that reason I wasn't even going to try the 10, as I thought the sleeves would be tighter, but as the rest of the dress felt quite big, I decided to try it and see : imagine my surprise to find the 10 was even looser than the 12. So I measured them up, and they are the same size or if anything, the 10 is cut slightly bigger. It is 1/2 inch longer than the 12, and the sleeves are wider at the bottom, though the other measurements are the same. So I'm a bit annoyed because neither dress is right - I'd at least like an option of trying on a smaller size since that is what I had bought. If it was a one-off, I probably wouldn't bother to comment, but this is the third time this has happened with TTA clothes. There is another dress style where I bought 2 different sizes, and they are EXACTLY the same by measurements and fit (and both slightly big), and a jacket where there is minimal difference (only 3/8 inch across the chest) between the two sizes. Anyway, rather than send back for exchange and risk getting another wrongly sized 10, or buying an 8 which I'm certain would be too small (in any case, I don't know if I was sent two size 10s, or size 12s) I like the style and fabric enough I've kept both and wear as a loose tunic with a belt. I've dyed one of the dresses brown (was initially alpine), so at least I have two useful pieces of clothing. It's cute enough, but I would love to see how the smaller size might have fitted and been worn as a dress.
between the lines cord dress-great !
This dress will be great for cooler weather with tights and turtle neck. a little short for me but will work great with the tights. Love the colors and weight of the fabric.
ok. too short
the color is good....the feel is soft. i bought a 12 and it fits well, except it is above my knee and the sleeves are not to my wrists. I am 5'2"" so i was surprised that it falls above my knee. It would be perfect if it was a bit longer. the price was great but by the time i pay an added $10+ for shipping by mail it's too pricey.
