Women's French Terry Colorblock Dress
Too short for tall girls
I bought the blue and mint green. I like the color, fabric, neck line, but my gosh... WAY TOO SHORT! I'm 5'9" and bought a large. If it were a little shorter, I would have considered keeping it as a tee shirt.

Lovely go-to dress
I think this dress is light weight but absolutely not thin or see-through at all. I'm 5'1.5, 118 lbs, a little curvy with big hips, got a size 2 (my normal) and found the separate color line falling on my hips nicely instead of going straight down like the model. I was very hesitant to buy this dress because in pictures it looks like the upper color extends a little too far down. But all turned out well. It's worth it with a discount coupon. Gonna wear it all summer.

Perfect Lounge Dress!
I purchased this dress in the aged navy and love the color/combo. I didn't find the fabric too thin at all...it's sought of like a lightweight sweatshirt material. As for the lighter color on the bottom being see thru, that is easily fixed by wearing flesh toned undergarments....not a problem for me. I'm fairly new to canvas, so I'm not really sure if this dress runs big. I want to say it seems slightly larger, as it fit me better in size x small then small. For reference I am 5'2" aprox. 122 lbs.

I thought I might be sending this back after I ordered it but I was pleasantly surprised. It fit nicely and the colour blocking is nice. I will look forward to wearing it when the weather gets warmer. Thought it was a bit pricey for the quality though.

Great summer dress
I am usually a medium, and the medium fit perfect. (I'm 5'7, 130 lbs) I am glad I tried it on first though. From the reviews I wasn't sure if it would be too big or too small. Im sure this will be my "go to" dress in the spring/summer. It is a great, super comfy hangout dress.

I own numerous LE dresses. Loved the color, loved the style... but it did not match my expectations... Probably nice on a slim figure but not if you have curves. See-through and more like a long T shirt than a stylish cosy summer dress. Sent it back, no doubt and no regrets...

Great for summer!
I ordered down a size as other reviews suggested and this dress fit perfectly! I loved the fabric. Not too heavy but not too thin. The length was perfect and if you order size appropriate, the dress falls nicely without being to tight but also not boxy and unflattering.

I can't wait to wear this dress when it gets warmer. It's adorable, fabric is a nice weight and the fit is comfortable. I'm generally in between sizes but would say the dress runs slightly large. I'm 5'3 and the length was perfect - may be too short for taller ladies.

good in theory
I so, so, so wanted to love this dress. I love the color blocking and the pockets. This type of thing is what I live in during the summer months. I'm typically a size 10, but ordered the Medium and the Large to compare the two. Initially I was disappointed when I took them out of the package and saw how flimsy the fabric is. I was expecting something more substantial, but this truly is light-weight t-shirt fabric. The medium was too small and too short, so I moved on to the large. I was expecting it to fit like it does on the model, loose and flow-y, but it was clingy and sadly, followed my every curve. I'm so disappointed to have to send it back. I think if in the future Lands' End Canvas makes this again, it would be better served to make it in a heavier fabric so that it drapes nicer on the female figure.

I'm glad color block has made a comeback, though I would prefer that the lighter color be on top. That may be because I'm 59, not exactly the target audience for Canvas :-). This dress is lightweight and comfortable, though it seems to run a bit big. I may return the medium for a small. I think it I will wear I often this spring/summer.
