Great Versatile Dress -- Works for Petites
Being a petite woman with somewhat heavy upper arms (5'2"" 132 lbs.) I was concerned that the neckline of this dress might be too low and the sleeves might be too tight. Not to worry--both neckline and sleeves fit just fine. The sleeves come just to my elbows and the hem is about mid-knee. I can see that I will be wearing this dress a lot--it's great for day into evening. I would say that the fabric was lighter and stretchier than I had envisioned and the color of the Blue Haze is definitely grayer than pictured, but it's still a great color. Due to the timeless versatility of this dress I have ordered the black and the plum as well and will be wearing them for years to come.
comfortable, pretty, but short
I am tall (5'8"") and assumed the model in the photo is also tall so I thought the length would be similar length on me. Dress is several inches shorter on me than in the pic, too short really. So I am guessing the model is wearing a larger size and the dress is pinned in the back. Wish the dress dimensions were listed as the sizing chart doesn't really help most people as every garment is different and product dimensions don't list length. However, the dress is very soft and comfortable and I like the fit and love the sleeve length. (I bought the S size as I like my dresses more fitted and the dress is several inches shorter on me than pictured)
Love, Love this dress
Best purchase so far in 2012 maybe 2011. This dress will be your go to dress, go to store, run to pick up kids, run to beach/pool, lunch, and then belt it with heels and go to dinner. I love the fabric, the sleeves are perfect! I'm not totally fit, so didn't want cap sleeves as alot of my summer dresses are, these are perfect. I am a size 10-12 so went with the Large. I always launder before wearing so washed and dried totally took it out, shake and was ready to go! Probably could have ordered a Med but I do have my heavier days. I am 5'7"" and the length is perfect too. Better order fast as I am telling all my friends, and ordering more colors. Territory Ahead has got this one Perfect!

Dress Up or Casual
This dress is pretty, soft and comfortable. I can easily wear it to work, dress it up for a dinner or evening out, or wear it casually to go shopping. The color is attractive different than any ""blues"" I already have. Material is soft; love the sleeve length and neckline.
Easy to wear
I am 5'4"", 115 lbs & this dress (in a size XS) ran a little big on me. However, I don't think it is designed (or presented) as being ""form fitting."" The dress it easy to wear & washes/dries well. It does need accessories to jazz it up, but that is part of its appeal because you can give it different looks depending on what belt, necklace, etc, that you wear with it. This was a good buy for the money.
Great Travel Dress!
I absolutely love this dress. It is soft and comfortable. I needed a black travel dress for a trip to Paris and couldn't have made a better choice. It can been worn casual or dressed up for a night on the town. I wore it three times in a week long span and with the change of accessories, it was three completely different outfits. I would recommend this dress to anyone. Only sorry I didn't get it in two different colors.
An easy A-line with a silky gauge and drape. I am 5'5'' and 155 lbs with a rather chunky waist but this skims fine and is nice belted. Have yet to wash it. Elbow length sleeves a plus.
Nice soft cotton, many ways to wear it. I got purple & it's a nice mellow purple.
I bought this dress in purple because the black was sold out in my size, which is Medium. I like the purple and it I liked thd fit because it is shaped but not too tight. Went back online and the black was back in stock, so I ordered it. The black one arrived and is three inches shorter and much tighter than the purple. Both are size Medium. Still deciding whether to keep the black one. I'm 5'9"" 150 pounds.
First purchase from T.A. I wanted a simple, comfortable dress that I could dress up or down and this is it. I ordered the grapefruit color and paired it with a tan linen crop jacket, patterned scarf and brown ankle boots. It also looks great with a pair of crochet/lace flats and a brown cardigan. I came back and ordered the black!
