    Wow, Wow, Wow
    " This is another magnificent PC dress. It is elegant, extremely high quality, feminine and versatile. This dress hangs nicely, (wish the goring was a bit closer to the body to accentuate my mid-body albeit short waist.) The weight is very nice, I hope it holds up for years to come. At 100% cotton it’s good to go from day to evening by adding a light sweater. Or just go bare arms and legs with sandals in warmer weather. I will dress it up with jewelry and strapy pumps and dress it down with flat gladiator sandals. I read the other comments on length and the model; the dress is pictured just below her knees as I expected when I put it on my 5'6" frame. I got a small and at 34”, 26”, 35” this dress is the bomb.

    beautiful fit for some folks
    " The moment I put this on I felt great - I like the heavier weight, the drape, and the length is fine for me - a solid inch below the knee. I ordered a small (5' 5", 130 lbs, 34" bust) and it is perfect, a rarity for me. I'm shortwaisted and have a difficult time finding dresses that fit as well as this, especially in Peruvian Connections and other limited series that don't have petite. I would definitely travel with it if not needing to go ultralight - could see wearing it for many occasions - in immediate future for summer wedding and high school reunion. Comments of other reviews are accurate, but clearly the fit works for some, not others, so it's worth trying out if you are on the shorter side. I"m curvy and the dress works great for me that way. The wide straps and armhole size work well for bra not showing. "

    Short and girlish
    " I echo complaints of previous reviewers about the short length and I also add my complaint about the dress being short-waisted. The flare starts pretty high, so the dress skims over my natural waist and makes me look less like an hourglass. The styling is pretty true to the 1950's fit and flare. It is less than flattering on a woman my age and actually makes me look heavier around the middle than I am. I am sending mine back, but for a woman who can carry this dress off, it is very distinctive. "

    Lovely but Heavy
    " Lovely dress, but I was surprised at how heavy the fabric was. I didn't realize "Pima Jacquard" would be as substantial as it was. More like drapery fabric than a Pima sleeveless summer dress. And it was definitely too heavy to consider packing for a trip to Italy. Going to return it. If that isn't a consideration, you might love it. "

    Smashing
    " It arrived and I love it. Gorgeous fabric, easy flare but a bit shorter yet still below the knee. Can wear a regular bra but on me it’s a bit low cut. Perfect to take on vacation because it folds to nothing and doesn’t wrinkle. I’m wearing it to a garden wedding but with a sweater it can be casual. "

    The "Everything" Dress
    " This is my favorite PC dress yet. It is beautiful, high quality, feminine and versatile. This dress hangs beautifully and can be worn without cover-up (love the double V neckline!) or with a shrug, shawl or cardigan. The weight is nice enough to wear with tights and a cashmere cardigan in cooler weather, but 100% cotton, so can be worn with bare arms and legs and sandals in warm weather. It can be dressed up with jewelry and fancy shoes or worn as a spectacular casual print, with flat sandals. It is more black and light grey than the cream color mentioned, which is nice for those of us who are blue-eyed brunettes. The slimming shape of the dress is further enhanced by the pattern itself, which is smaller around the waistline. To me, this is the "everything" dress. My only caution: it has a gorgeous jacquard weave, so don't pick your cat up while wearing it! I read the other comments on length and will add mine as well. I am 5'9" and was also surprised by the length compared to the photo on the model. The dress length is just below my knee, not mid-calf as shown. However, PC is very consistent in publishing the length of all dresses and skirts in inches, so take note of the 41" length specified in the description. "

    Beautiful dress Beautiful fit Love it!
    " Usually I don't wear sleeveless but with the wide shoulder straps I can't wait. The front and back v's are not too low. The fabric is gorgeous, lovely pattern, the goring accentuates the waist and adds interest to the waist area, the skirt has a fantastic swing. I am 5'5", slim build, 104 pounds. With the dress being semi-fitted, XS worked for me-not shapeless but skims the waist. Cannot wait to wear it many places! "

    Beautiful!
    " I am 5'7" and was also disappointed that the dress came just below my knees. I returned it because of that, but then re-ordered it because I couldn't stop thinking about it! This dress is high quality and is so beautiful and comfortable and makes me feel really special when I put it on. The fabric goes from a dark to a light shade of black depending on how the light hits it. It's simply elegant and I cannot wait to get it back! "

    Suggestion
    " Perhaps the trick to knowing if a dress is the right length for you, is for Peruvian to state the height of the model. I am 5'6" and would love to have this dress ....deliberating on the length because of the first review. "

    Wish it were longer
    " I would expect models to be at least my height, 5’7”, but considering the length of this dress in the picture online, the model must be 5’4”. I purchased the medium and the fit is perfect, but the length is too short for the fullness of the skirt. The fabric is beautiful and the cut is lovely. I am not sure whether I’ll keep it or not. I wish Peruvuan Connection would make dresses a little longer, as it is easy to shorten a hem, but impossible to lengthen one. "
