I ordered this dress to wear to a friend's wedding and got so many compliments! It fit me perfectly- this is one time when I am glad to be a bit smaller on top- because it does fit a bit tight there. But it was great for me. I wear an 8 and am a 36B. It was wrinkled when it arrived from being folded up, but I just sprayed it with lemon verbena ironing water and let it air dry...no ironing needed! I love it.
Too small in chest
Close to previous reviewer...way too small in chest area. I'm a size 8 but have a 36 C/D chest. Couldn't even come close to zipping this size 8 dress. Fit perfect otherwise. Color and the dress itself is gorgeous...you just need to be small chested and you're in! (Literally!)
Way too small in the bust!
This dress is cute but it is so tight in the bust that I can't zip it. I bought it last year and lost weight and am down to a size 10. The dress is a 12 and I still can't get it zipped. I am average build all over and have never had this problem before. Very disproportionate. Also, it wrinkles across the front. I've not worn it but just from trying it on it holds the wrinkles.
This dress is as another reviewer said, a knockout. The fit is outstanding, the quality of the linen is excellent, and it is lined in cotton, hard to find these days. It is cool rather than so hot as so many of the fabrics being utilized today. This dress can be worn for nearly anything, going from very casual with flip flops to a summer wedding with heels. I bought both colors and only wish there were more colors to choose from. Please bring this dress back next year with more colors!!

This dress is high quality and lovely. I am a size 12 but this dress is very tight across the chest and I have 5" of zipper that won't zip up on the side. It fits perfectly everywhere else. Even though I'm reducing, It may be that when I get the bust to fit it will be big in the hips. I am curvy. My bust size is 34D.
this dress is amazing! i have been a customer for years and the Serenade was my favorite dress for a long time, but this one is really a knockout. I wore it today for the first ime and got so many compliments. i have an hour-glass figure and this flatters the bust, highlights the waist and isn't too tight on the hips. I just ordered it again in second color.
