This style is cute and the color is vibrant. I was looking forward to adding this dress to my wardrobe, but sadly the sizing is off. The dress is marked size 8 which normally fits me perfectly. This dress was quite snug through the hips - if it shrank at all in washing it would be too tight. The bodice was quite large, more comparable to a size 10 or 12. The armholes were significantly too large and the entire bodice was out of proportion compared to the skirt. It's almost as if they mixed pieces from different sizes during construction. Very odd and maybe a fluke. I'm sending it back as it is not wearable as it is.
This dress arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to try it on. It fits perfectly, size 10, and is a good length, just as shown on the model. It's neckline is modern but not too low. The blue fabric is vibrant and soft. There are modest slits on the side seams. I will wear this dress often this summer. The cap sleeves and the front button loops add interest. Good buy.
