      Fabric is a disappointment
      " Sadly, the fabric here is a disappointment. It's the wrong weight for a slim, long-sleeved, bell-skirted, fall/winter dress. It's an ephemeral material that ruffles and gathers almost of its own accord, which would make it great for one of those elaborate Anthropologie inventions with layers of ruffles, ties and florettes. But it's not substantial enough to hold the subtle shape of this silhouette-defining dress, and not warm enough to suit long sleeves. I hope that Peruvian Connection hasn't succumbed to the marketing ploy of trying to make us think that flimsy, cost-saving fabric is a virtue. My closet is full of evidence that they're capable of better. The design of this dress is fabulous, and I would have loved to see it in a fall/winter fabric. The subtle princess seaming starts a little high, more like an empire than a wasp waist, which makes it forgiving in the middle without looking like an obvious I-need-a-dress-that's-forgiving-in-the-middle kind of dress. And the mid-shin length is a Godsend in this era (should I say error) of fabric-skimping minis and tunics that are at best only for teens and twenty somethings but in truth make even them look like a child's, Barbie-inspired idea of well dressed. This dress' contour is elegant enough to stand alone and also goes well under a pullover sweater or a jacket of any length from bolero to below-the-knee. The best feature is that it allows the wearer the look of a defined waist without the discomfort of a waistband. Which is why I couldn't resist keeping it in spite of the fabric. And now regret it, because it'll have to be worn with a substantial slip or under-dress to stay warm and keep its shape. Which, at this price, is unacceptable. Peruvian Connection, please make more dresses like this, but ditch the summer-weight fabric. "

      Returned
      " So disappointed! The fabric is tissue-weight thin and insubstantial, not of good quality. And while the dress design is very interesting, the raw edged seams are too raw in places...as in somewhat shabby construction. I've given up on modal fabric. Will not again purchase anything made with modal. Immediately returned... "

      Love this dress
      " Love this dress! It is so soft, light & absolutely comfortable. It is very flattering & the style is so versatile - looks great with a waist belt, hip belt or just as is. I am normally a size 8 top and size 10 bottom - the Medium is a perfect fit. Highly recommend! "

      Versatile Dress
      " This dress is very versatile. It can be worn with a belt, scarf, or necklace to create different looks. It is very thin, which works for me in AZ. Someone in colder weather may need to layer with it. It also has rough edges on the stitching. This is fine for me, but I can see others not liking it. The fit seems like it would be flattering for most people. "
