Color is not as pictured
I ordered this in the wine color and I don't know what goes with the way the color of items appear online here but I had to return the dress because the color was weak in person, which changed the whole look of the dress for me. Overall it looked like a house dress.
I'm so glad I got this dress in the sale! It's one of those easy Sunday dress! It runs big! I usually get a medium in any dress due to my bigger chest but I got a small and it's still lose! Which I like! Since I'm going for relaxed look.
I got the dress in the wine color- the fabric is very natural, soft, and stretchy and the dress reminded me of vintage 1979 disco era style, which I love. It's a sexy dress in an understated way. I got a small, which fits great. For the price and if you have a small waist this hangs beautifully. My only concern was there was an oil stain on the shoulder. I don't know if I can get it out :( and would rather not return it.

Not for short girls
5', big busted, thick thighed. Was a fool to think this would look remotely good on me. This ended up being long-sleeved and nearly floor length on me. If you are similar height to the model, you'd be okay. Quality was okay-good. Linen was a nice touch, but husband said it felt like a burlap sack. Little ladies, take a pass.
I originally ordered this dress in sz large in black but I felt like it was too big in the waist with the drawstring pulled tighter than I had anticipated. I returned it for a medium, and it"s wonderful! It's a great soft but sturdy cotton, it's accented in all the right places with great details and can be worn with many different accessories and shoe or boot choices. Love it! For reference, I'm 5' 7", 40D chest, and high waisted.
Peasant and Pretty
I was a little dubious at first when I tried the dress on but my husband complimented the piece so it is a keeper. I got it in the bordeaux colour and it is very lovely as I was looking for an easy to wear dress that was not black. Unlike the previous reviewer, I found that the semi-open back displayed my bra so had to find a slip to hide it because it as it looked 'wrong' given the style of the dress. Am still trying to find the right colour slip to wear underneath it. I do prefer V necks so I may take it to a tailor to have the front modified or I may just leave it alone for the time being.
classic look, but big
This is a great staple piece, but I thought that the fabric was a little flimsier than what was described in the previous reviews. I was expecting a thick and durable fabric. . . not the case. It was very thin and delicate. I am petite so I had to really tie the drawstring tight to get it to look slimming. On the fence. . . it is comfortable, but it may be too oversized for me.
This is such an easy dress to wear. It says linen and cotton but there is stretch. Even with semi open back my bra doesn't show if I wear it without a slip but I love it with the slip which has the lace at the bottom, no longer on line it seems. I just wish they were as I would like to wear different coloured slips under it so they peep out the sides, The dress also looks fab with the really fancy tights on FP, it is such a great dress to wear when its a day of 'I haven't got anything to wear!!!' It is warm, natural fibre, so comfortable, a must buy, its a real keeper
I love this dress. Depending on how you tie the drawstring, totally changes the look of the dress: high, low, tight, loose. I actually liked the look of it tied loosely in front and slightly gathered in the back. It kind of looks like a medieval monk's robe from the front but then you turn around and BOOM-- sexy cut out back (but still demure enough for the office)! The fabrics is a nice weight. A little rough but warm enough for fall. I Got it in the black. I wish there were another color besides the burgundy. A nice olive or burlap color would be lovely. I'm 5'5, size 14 and busty. It's hard to find drawstring dresses that don't make me look pregnant. This dress is awesome.
