Women's Sleeveless Madras Shirtdress
Great for when you need to wear something other than jeans and it is hot outside. I am a regular size 6, but I ordered the petite so I wouldn't have to shorten it. It fits perfectly and sits just above my knee (I am 5' 5").

Beautiful summer dress
This is a lovely dress; it fits beautifully. I especially like the cut of the shoulders. If it were available in black linen, I'd be one happy camper!

NICE DRESS BUT TOO SHORT
This dress fits but the length is not what is stated in the description. I measured from the shoulders in more than one place and never got 41" . I might have to return it. Landsend needs to cater more for the mature women and for me above the knee is not comfortable.

This was on clearance and I love it
Think I will wear this dress a lot this summer. It fits well and is super comfy. The first time I washed it I had to just press the belt a bit, hardly had to press the dress at all. I expect it will get even softer the more it is worn and washed.

SO CUTE I BOUGHT 2!
Bought one last year... loved it so much, bought another this year! PERFECT for hot summer days! Fabric breathes, fits just right, not too tight. Always looks crisp and fresh! LOVE this dress! Wish it came in more patterns, but the pastel plaid is lovely. Many compliments received on this one!

better than the picture!
I wasn't terribly optimistic when I ordered this, but I'm very pleased! I like the fabric so much-- in the picture the color looks like it could be anything from terracotta to light orange, but it's really a soft, pretty pink! I ordered size 6 and it is just barely covers my knees (I'm 5'8"). It is also a little wide on me, but the tie at the waste helps with that. Overall it fits big but is true to LE sizing. I wish it was a little bit longer and came in even more color selections because this is one I would buy twice.

Great colours for pale skin, but not sized for busty gals.
I love this dress, but it is a bit snug in the bust. I bought a size 10 to allow for extra room up top, and it just barely fits. The pale plaid colours are very flattering to a cool skin tone. The collar seems overlarge, but the great shaping of this dress means it actually looks better without the self belt. However, if you have a really small waist, then a pastel leather belt would look nice.

This dress is really cute and it fit well, but as soon as I moved or sat down the space between the buttons on the placket would gap really bad, and all the way down. So in order to prevent flashing anyone sitting next to me I'd have to wear a body suit underneath! Not practical or desireable.The eyelet dress they had over the summer seemed to be the same cut, but the fabric was heavier so it didn't gap. This one just didn't work--it doesn't matter how cute something is if you're flashing people sitting next to you in church!

The fabric is so soft but still structured. It's perfect.
I love the fit. It feels tailored but still cumfy.
So pleased I ordered this dress, wish it came in more colors!

Great summer dress
I love this dress, although my mother says it looks a bit "matronly." Go figure. A shirtwaist dress is a classic. I ordered this on sale when only one color was available. I'd probably like it even better in a slightly brighter palette, but this one is just fine too. VERY comfortable and can be worn with or without the belt. I don't "do" sleeveless, so I wear it with a lightweight sweater. Someday I'd love to see the same dress with 3/4 length sleeves.
