      Sizing Notes
      " Many people love this dress. I don't know what's wrong with me for not liking it. Here are some fit notes for what it's worth. The XS dress has the following measurements: chest 32 inches, waist 28,hip 35. Going by the size chart, this is 1/2" negative ease in the chest, 3" ease in the waist, and zero ease in the hips. This gives a breast-squashing, waist-bagging, and hip-hugging fit (if your measurements match the size chart). This is not a winning look for me. Maybe sizing up would make it work (but that would make the waist baggier). Beware if you have narrow shoulders: the XS shoulder straps sit 12" apart. "

      Easy, comfortable, pretty.
      " Nice shade of blue. The fit is true to size, and the seaming ads shape and flow to this double layer dress. May be a little heavy for humid areas, but perfect for me. "

      Paler blue than shown
      " Overall the dress is a good value and made well. The dress is made of two thick layers of cotton so this is not a dress for a hot/humid summer day. The blue colour is much paler than shown and not a vibrant blue. "

      Wow! This dress is a winner!
      " I'm 5'3" and 110 pounds, so I got the XS. It fits like a dream and really looks good. I've received more compliments on this dress than others that are much more expensive. I didn't have trouble with the fit/hem like other buyers. This is a wardrobe staple for the summer. "

      Not for my narrow shoulders
      " This is a very pretty dress and I really wish it had fit me. I have narrow shoulders and average hips (5'6" and 115 pounds); basically a pear shape. Unfortunately the shoulders of this dress were too wide for me and kept falling down. The hips were fitted so it just didn't look right. But it does fit many people well so don't let this review stop you unless you also have really narrow shoulders. "

      Little Blue Dress
      " I've now worn this dress several times as well as the Hungarian-design cardigan with which it's shown. Each time I've received scads of compliments. Furthermore, the dress fits me without pulling, riding up or clinging. And since I'm curvy, I really appreciate how forgiving it is. Also, it travels beautifully. I would -- and have -- recommended the outfit to friends and am considering buying the dress in black. I've been a PC customer since the company began and can say only, "Keep up the good work, Annie!" "

      the layers keep the dress hem from laying straight
      " the other reviewer noted, the dress pulls between the layers. It is a great dress, IF you don't mind the double layer pulling and making the hem not lay right. It is a mess. The double layer means that it isn't 2 layers that separately lay towards the bottom, so they hang straight, it is that the fabric is down the outside, flips over at the bottom, and goes back up the inside. there is no hem, or not even an overstitching to keep these two sides hanging in the same place. It is awful, it bunches like crazy around the bottom on what is otherwise a slim fitting dress. it will not hang right. who wants that. this could be avoided if they made it slightly differently. "

      Stunning simplicity
      " Buy this dress if you are planning to travel. It is fabulous and dresses up beautifully. I paired it with a wide Italian leopard belt and a concho belt. The cool Peruvian wide tassel belt shown was unavailable. Shorty boots give it a sassy edge. I also purchased the soft, cozy tobacco sweater shown in the catalog -now on sale. Both easily fit into my small carry with room to spare for a recent trip to Switzerland. The dress machine washed nicely in cold water with Woolite for dark colors. I'm 5'9'' 150 lbs. 0rdered M and L. Kept the M in the dress and sweater. L was boxy on my frame. "

      Color Not As Pictured
      " I chose this in the cream/sand color and the dress was a fail for my purposes for a couple of reasons. First, the color in the photo looks like a light cream. I was surprised when it arrived and it's actually a much more yellow beige — closer to the typical color of a pair of khakis than an off-white. Not good with my skin tone. Second, the fabric was more t-shirt cotton than light sweater knit. Not right for my event, either. If the color had been right, I would have kept it for something else, though. It is a nice, classic, simple but sexy silhouette, though, and I'll try it in black. "

      Colours PLEASE!
      " I have this dress in black and it is brilliant just to pop something on top, a piece of jewellery and you're off to work (or pretty much anywhere else depending on shoes). The only drawback is that, like all the double knit items, it eventually "pills" between the 2 layers which there is nothing you can do about. Other than this it is perfect in every way and oh sooooooo comfortable. Please note PC that this is your SPRING collection and I am looking forward to getting out of winter darks and into something light & bright!!! Bone or oyster, eggshell blue, burnt orange - give us some choices please! "

      Fabulous!
      " I love everything about this dress, except that it only comes in one color. I have been searching for the perfect sleeveless dress for years (really). I would certainly buy in other colors if available. Pearl white or grey, blue, just about any color. "

      The Canvas to Showcase Ornaments
      " This versatile basic dress is a great investment to show-off PC's beautiful cardigans, lacy shawls, unique belts... Described as "Fitted," I size-upped my ample 10 into a Large, & visited my tailor to tweek the shoulder straps tighter. What a great travel piece to accessorize with many years of Peruvian Connections' finest, & achieve a couple of fresh looks from a minimally packed suitcase. "

      " I am 5'4", 105lbs. and I bought this dress in an XS. The fit is slimming and flattering, and the fabric is smooth and comfortable. It's simple lines and ideal length make it a lovely classic that will stay in style year after year. I also purchased the cropped alpaca sweater modeled with the dress, -- a beautiful combination for fall. "
