Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I very reluctantly returned this dress when I realized that it didn't look good on my middle-aged figure. If you have a waist that nips in like the model, go for it with this pretty dress. A warning, though--it is much shorter than pictured. The proportion did not work for me but it will be lovely on the right person. Do try it on and see what you think--it is the usual PC quality and you won't be disappointed if this shape works for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect special occasion summer dressing I was on the fence about this dress but decided to try it because of a free shipping offer. I'm glad I did. While it looked predominantly black in the photos, in person, the raised texture of the white areas make is stand out in real life. The overall lightness of the fabric, the predominance of the white flowers and the flattering neckline and longer length (I'm only 5'2") make it appropriate for summer weddings, anniversaries and other occasions when you want to kick it up a notch. This is one dress that makes a woman feel beautiful. Well done, PC!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CUTE!! What took me so long? Needed this for my sons HS Graduation. Waited and the site had my size was sold out e when I finally went to bite the bullet. Customer Service directed me to my hometown of KC Store and they had it along with NYC! The store were able to ship it to me and I love it! I'm 5'5 and it hits right at the bottom of my knee (literally) so the picture on this site is a bit deceptive. Material is great and even with a D cup, it nothing is falling over or out of the dress ! I couldn't afford the Rossi Sandals Paired like the photo but Giselle Hi Wedge Sandals looks great! I'm excited and tearful that this moment has arrived and so happy that Peruvian could make me look and feel extra special when attending a Fine Arts HS graduation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Lacy, bas-relief blooms in high-contrast black and cream flourish on our pima jacquard knit sundress. Styled with a double v-neck and contrast binding, it's ingeniously engineered with knit-in gores to fit slim through the bodice and flare to a dramatic, twirlable hem.
