Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be careful when handwashing Lovely dusty blue color and flattering cut for my petite and slightly pear-shaped body (5 ft/100 lbs). The size XS fit perfectly in the bodice, showing off my narrow waist (on me, it hits about an inch above my natural waist). The sweeping a-line skirt gently hides hip bulges and elongates my frame. From shoulder to hem, the XS measured 49 inches, which skimmed the floor for me, but worked perfectly with heeled sandals. However, after I washed the dress for the first time, this very open weave fabric stretched out and the length grew to 52 in. I followed the care instructions very carefully, and treated it like I do all knits: I hand-washed it in cold water with a mild detergent, did not wring it dry, but laid it flat on a towel and rolled it up to absorb excess water, then laid it flat to dry on a fresh towel and reshaped it. However, despite all efforts to reshape it to its initial length and proportions, it was permanently stretched out. Seeing as it is knit all in one piece, this will be impossible to hem. I am very disappointed that it not longer fits as it did when it arrived. I wonder if I had drycleaned it instead of handwashing, if it would have kept its shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loosely Elegant This is a pretty dress--elegant with a skirt that moves nicely. The weave is interesting, but quite loose--something that might be troublesome if I'm unlucky and snag it. It fits well though the chest, and loose in the waist since this is clearly high-waisted. The color is less vibrant than in the picture and has a hint of turquoise, which is lovely. I'd like to see this in a tighter weave with short sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue elegance PC uses the most beautiful blue dyes in its clothing. The Shearwater dress in Azul does not disappoint and when I saw the summer catalog, ordered it immediately. In Pantone color scheme it is closest to a lighter shade of Cendre Blue (17-4131 (a bit of aqua in it), a subtle, warm rather than cold blue. The dress is fitted and has details like different stitch and knit work at waist and bottom part of dress. I am 5'7" and weigh a 122. I ordered a small. The dress is figure revealing. If you are not slim or have some bulges you might want to wear Spanx underneath or size up. Blue elegance. Love it.
