Nice dress for a different girl

Pros: easy to slip over the head, cute shoulder/cape leg style, fun print, nice material, fits well Cons: weird details on the front including a deep V front with hook and eye closure that might be fine if you are a small chested woman, but creates a weird gap where you can visibly see your bra in the front if you have a larger chest. Also there's buttons down the bottom of the dress so you can make the dress open higher or lower on the leg line. I just thought it looked confusing when there was already a lot going on with the bright print. I could see how it would be a great dress for someone else but it wasn't for me.

Unexpectedly great

Honestly, I thought I was going to HATE this when I opened it, but I was So, so wrong. The color and print are so vibrant and the fit is really flattering. Was worried that the length would be awkward, but it actually hits in just the right spot. The 2 was a tiny bit snug in the bust (that happens a bunch) and the eye was missing from the hook and and eye at the neckline (rugged it with a safety pin) but it'll pain me to send this back.

So much better on!

As other reviewers said, this is much better on than it looks on the hanger. The colors are really bright, but work well in a hot climate. I took this on vacation and got tons of compliments. Added bonus: it didn't wrinkle!

So lovely!

So comfortable and beautiful! Fit is a little large and somehow the silk is a little stretchy, so size down. The knotted front doesn't lie as flat as it looks on the model, but still a flattering shape.

Pretty and airy dress

This dress is really nice and you can tell that it's very high quality. I don't know if it is supposed to fit loose but to me it was too baggy so I paired it with a belt to give it more shape.

Not flattering

The gathering of material in the front turns this into a quasi- maternity dress. Not flattering.

Beautifully constructed; was too spring-ish for the weather of the event I was attending

It fit perfectly and the cut is great. Pattern is a little old-school (I had something very similar in the mid 90s) but it's clearly a designer dress.

Cute but fit is not great

The sleeves and the upper part of the dress run really large- feels though I have wings. The knot or design in the stomach area would give anyone a stomach. Pretty pattern but the material and fit are less yah ideal.

Really beautiful. I wanted to keep it!

Pros: GORGEOUS, body flattering, comfortable, well-made, can wear regular bra. V-neck depth and leg opening can be modified for personal style Cons: material gathers around stomach, which was great for my mummy tummy, but others might consider sizing down.

Loved the print, not so much the fit.

I should have listened to the other reviewers. The fit at the top is very odd and very big. It's made for someone much taller than I am, so all the extra fabric just looked around my chest and waist. Too bad, as I thought the fabric and print were perfect for summer.

Great pattern, kind of strange cut

This definitely required a belt and safety pins on my body, and even then it wasn't super-flattering. I think it runs a whole size large. Still, the pattern was pretty and the v-neck and button-up slit (left mostly unbuttoned in this photo) were sexy and flattering on an otherwise sack of a dress.

This dress was a little large around the bust.

Nicest house dress you'll ever wear.

Not sure I loved the silhouette--the knot in front didn't drape that well, but the material was gorgeous and it was super comfy. I could probably have sized down one.

Terrible fit

There is another Jackie dress by Prabal Gurung that fits like a dream. Get that one. This one was huge and the fabrication is completely different. It felt matronly while the other felt sexy. I really love this designer and this was a real disappointment.

Fun details.

I thought it seemed frumpy out of the bag but once I put it on, it was so cute. The buttoned slit in the front gave it interest along with the interesting fit of the under and outer layer. It was flirty but covered up, which made it great for work. It seemed a little roomy in the middle so I may size down. I'd rent it again.

An evening filled with friends, wine and dancing in a perfectly comfortable dress!

I liked this for a VERY hot day. The fit was slightly blousy but very comfortable and stayed cool through a summer evening in DC.

Interesting V-Neck!

This dress ran a smidge large, so order a size down for your second size. It has a v-neck with a hook and eye closure that can make it a shallower v-neck, or undo it for a deeper-v for a night out on the town. The length and cap sleeves were nice for work

So fun to wear!

Really loved this dress. The pattern was interesting, the sleeves were that perfect just more than capable sleeve length and the tie knot in the middle make the dress interesting and hide all tummy issues. I felt Chic and comfortable in this one, and think the look is really versatile for so many things.

Beautiful Dreww!

This is a very well constructed dress with lots of details. The fabric will not wrinkle so it makes it great for warm weather and travel. I wore it to a weeknight event and it was just dressy enough. I would think it would be great for a wedding. The detail in the front seemed a bit much at first but I grew to really love this dress.

Pretty in pink ... and blue and black and green and white and

Such a fun, springtime dress. The colors were brighter in real life than they looked on the screen, but I didn't mind. It was a flattering cut, and there were several features that I appreciated, like the buttons at the bottom to create a slit and the extra fabric under the arm to prevent sideboob. I received lots of compliments and felt very confident in this.
