Women's 3/4-sleeve Pattern Knit Surplice Dress
I have been admiring this dress for awhile and finally took the plunge to get it. No regrets! I usually take a 10 or 12 in LE sizes and the Medium fits me perfectly. I am a curvy figure with several extra pounds and lumps and bumps and the material and fit are very flattering and forgiving. The sleeve length is great for all year wear, can push up above the elbow without looking weird. The wrap neckline is too low for my fairly conservative style (I prefer not to show any cleavage), but it is so flattering I am going to just try to adjust it with a pin. LE prints are often too wild for my taste but I love this black and taupe pattern - somehow it is both a standout and subtle at the same time. My new favourite dress.

Fabulous figure flattery!
Very nice quality, love the floral pattern and the weight of the fabric. The dress fits like a dream. I purchased the medium. I'm 5'8" and 137 lbs. Washes up well; easy care and no wrinkles. I've worn it with tall boots and think it'll be great with flats. If you run warm, this may not be the spring dress for you but I work in a very chilly office, so it's perfect.

Beautiful styling, lousy fabric
The dress fit beautifully. Loved the print and the style. One delicate washing, with air drying, and the dress started to pill. I returned it.

The dress is a nice fit that went from a stretch cotton to a WOW dinner dress!
The print is eye catching but suttle enough to be in good taste.
I got compliments on it the first time I wore it! It is comfortable and flattering.

This dress fits well and looks like the stylish dresses I adore from Boden. I bought my regular size (XS) and it actually fits--usually I'm swimming in my normal size when I buy from Land's End thanks to the patronizing vanity-sizing going on in the U.S.

I am short so I ordered the petite size which is a little shortwaisted.
The dress is a little short waisted. If I had ordered a regular size the length and sleeves would have been too long.

fit funny, fabric poor quality. Wanted to like it, but didn't at ALL.

With some hesitation I ordered the XS, based solely on the reviews that said this ran small. I am 5'5 and 105 lbs; finding clothes that fit is a real challenge. I just received the dress today and immediately tried it on, pretty much assuming that it would still be too large. Mercy was I pleasantly surprised - this dress fits like a glove and completely flatters my no-hipped, flat-as-a-board body. I will wear this to church and out on dates with my husband. The quality of the fabric is fabulous; it has a much more substantial feel than most other knits. Love it. Thank you, Lands' End! This dress is gorgeous. Make more patterns, please! Perhaps some mod prints?

I bought this dress in the Size S (my size, I thought since I have a few Lands End dresses from last year that are a size small), but it was a little skimpy (too tight all over actually). So I exchanged it for the Size M -- a little bigger on the top than I would necessarily like, but I can put a cami under it. All in all, a very nice dress. The length was perfect for me (I'm 5'5" with a slight build). I really like the pattern on this dress -- perfect for the fall and winter months.

Nice drape to fabric and a good length for me.
The fit is fine and the fabric print is modern and attractive. I'll be wearing it to a school reunion with Lands' End vicuna sued pumps that match the vicuna color in the dress fabric print.
