Fonteyn Pima and Micromodal Dress

Item #190169
Was: $0.00
Now: $0.00
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress - I wish I was less plump for it. The way the sleeves come in to the bust leaves just enough space and no coverage or support for the side jiggle I can't get rid of. Otherwise the dress is gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning deal! This dress is such a great value at this sale price. It is so versatile. This Fall/Winter I will wear it with black suede boots and big silver earrings. Next summer I can imagine wearing it with a variety of sandals for a casual look. This dress offers the right combination of sass and femininity. The fabric is soft and the fit is wonderful. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Black Dress My sister bought this dress first, a few years ago. She just looks so stunning in it! When it went on sale, I just had to have one of my own! The material is so soft & comfortable. I bought the Med. & feel that it fits TTS. This dress is such a classic & will be suitable for numerous occassions. It is definately a go to dress that you can throw on in a moments notice & be on your way. And now the price is reduced even further!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic dress!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a fantastic dress. I bought it in both colors. I should have bought it when it came out almost two years ago! Nevertheless, I am wearing it to church and for special occasions. The style and construction are lovely. If you sew, you will be very impressed! A great purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feminine, versatile, comfortable I was lucky enough to get this dress at the sale price. The fabric is not what I expected -- it looks more like silk in the catalog photo -- but I'm happy with it all the same. Based on other reviews, I ordered a size down, and it fits well. Some reviewers complained that the fabric is cut away too widely under the arm, but I'm 5'9" and it's a relief to find clothes that fit my torso properly and aren't bunched up under the armpit area. The dress has small ruffles on the skirt and rosette pintucks on the shoulders. Very pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly elegant and unique dress I fell in love w/ this dress the first time I saw it and was not dissappointed from the moment I unwrapped it and put it on! Beautiful detailing and design, soooo soft, very easy to dress it up with funky accessories or be a bit more casual and let the detailing be the focus. The perfect dress to get you past the dilemma of "i don't want to be under/over dressed". Rich cranberry color. The other reviews GREATLY helped my size choice, I'm 5'10, curvey yet slim, w/ a 36D bust;, my biggest concern was having enough coverage in the bust. The medium fit perfect and was even a bit loose around the waist, however fit perfectly on top. ( I never expect an even fit from top to bottom when I buy dresses and keep a good tailor on speed dial, just a few tweeks can make it a custom fit.) I definately recommend going down a size. Great dress and am looking forward to wearing it again! PC, you have another devoted fan!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the dress the first time I saw it! Peruvian Connections would be my favorite store no matter where I was. I have lost lots of money in the last 5 years, so I can't afford what I used to.I saw this dress when it first came out and could not afford it. I couldn't believe it was left to go on sale.I thought and thought, and decided I would forego even food if I had to. I wanted the dress. As usual, it is beautiful, great quality, fits perfect, and feels beautiful on. I will probably wear it on a very hot day when there is opportunity since I have to wear it!Thx to all of you there at Peruvian for kind, desirable, and very lovely quality of service. and for staying w me now that I cannot to buy very often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing The dress did not look attractive because of the material. The shoulders were cut away a lot at the back. Both black and red looked poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful!!! I am a performing pianist and purchased this dress for that purpose. It is absolutely gorgeous and perfect in every way. Rich, drapey fabric, interesting, creative, and flattering details, beautiful fit and exceptionally well made. You should see how wonderfully it hangs over the piano bench. Thank you for your vision and thank you for being different!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Large I ordered this dress in a medium using the sizing guidelines on the PC website. This dress, however, runs large. I am tall - 5'11" and slim, so I thought I would need a medium which is what I usually wear. The medium was way too big for me and gaped at both the waist and bust. It seems that one would need a large bust or a well-padded bra for the top part of the dress to fit properly. I am going to order the small and see if it fits. The red color is absolutely stunning and fabric, while knit, is very thick and well-made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this dress This dress is absolutely beautiful. The reviews that refer to it as "t-shirt" material do not do it justice. It is a lovely, rich jersey that provides an extremely elegant look; I will be weaing it to an event that requires cocktail attire, and I know it will work perfectly. It does run a little big, so consider that when ordering your size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it had fit I unfortunately didn't fit into this dress. After I read the reviews and a woman who usually wore a 12-14 ordered a medium and it fit, I decided to order a small. The dress fit in the bust (I am a 34C) but the high waist was tight around my rib cage and the skirt didn't hang free because my hips were too big (hips 38). The jersey fabric is nice, not as formal as the dress perhaps but very comfortable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful looking dress The dress looked beautiful in the model in the catalog. When I got it, the color was dull and the material was just like a T-shirt material not dressy for the wedding I wasn trying to buy the dress for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love This Dress! I read everyone's reviews before purchasing and so bought the XS. I'm usually a size 2 and 34B. It was snug around the ribs but no reason to return it. I love the neckline, very flattering. Nice color. Great dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase for holiday season Thanks to the prior reviewers, I ordered the right size the first time. One of the most comfortable, attractive, well fitting dresses I have ever gotten.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unflattering The fabric of this dress is thick and heavy, so it didn't have a flattering look for me. The fabric has a consistency of t shirt material. Also the cut of the dress isn't favorable. The sash at the waist creates a thick look in the midsection and does not enhance a womenly curve. I agree with another reviewer who mentioned that it fits large, because I got a Medium instead of a Large (my usual) and it was still too big in the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful dress I had to re-order this dress in a smaller size. The size L was too loose around the waist to be flattering on my size 14 frame. The M was a great fit, so for me it ran pretty large. I've been really impressed with the quality of the detailing and workmanship. The cotton modal fabric isn't as elegant for the cost, overall, but that's probably my only complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dress! This dress is a beautiful shade of red and makes for a stunning entrance. Lovely length, elegant flare, and extremely comfortable fabric. A classic silhouette that can be worn for a variety of occasions.
