Women's Denim Shirt Dress
Much shorter on me than on model; Lands End Please make a Tall version!
I was so excited to receive this dress but was very disappointed when I tried it on. I am 5' 6" tall and am an average build. I normally wear average lengths on most pants. I don't have really long waist or legs. This dress was about 4-5 inches above my knees which is too short for someone of my age. I'm on the wrong side of 50. Those of us who are and like to be stylish, have to be careful how we wear current trends. I did recommend this dress because I think it is very stylish and if I were 20 years younger this dress would be very cute but I'm not, so back it goes. Land's End please, please make this dress in a Tall. I'm sure there are lots of ladies out there who would purchase a Tall for the extra length at the knee.

Nice, simple, thin fabric
Some will not like the fabric but tailoring is nicely turned. Thin fabric allows for shirt under, sweater over, or scarf without overheating. Thanks LE!

Good job I read the washing instructions, as this dress really does bleed
Fit is on the small side, worn casually

Nice fall dress
Great to pair with a shirt or sweater - whatever is your mood - also tights are great - no matter your age!

Great Denim Shirt Dress!
Very comfortable, nice quality, and true to size (I'm a size 10 and ordered a medium), a perfect fit for me because I don't like tight fitting dresses. Sleeves are 3/4 but it's what I expected from the reviews. I ordered it while 30% so it was a great buy--I highly recommendit

Great all around dress.
Did opt up a size due to gapping at the buttons.

Not exactly as pictured
As others noted, the stitching is not gold thread, as shown, but all blue which makes is more of just a blue dress rather than a denim dress. The fit is very large and blousey; I immediately started looking for things to wear under it "dress" it up, then just returned it.

Let's Hope You Fare Better Than I
Very disappointed in the lack of quality in this dress. And it's a pity, because the dress is very stylish. For reference, I am approx 5'5", weigh 140, and have a 38 inch bust measurement, wear a 34 D/DD. Here is my experience, so far : I ordered my first dress, a size 12, and as I reached into the package to pull the dress out of the thin plastic wrapper they come in, I grabbed onto a piece of hair. Yes. Really. So, I called Lands End, and was told NOT to touch the dress, or even finish taking it out of the wrapper, and that they'd send me a new one. The 2nd dress then arrived. This one, now stunk so strongly of perfume and laundry detergent, that I began sneezing repeatedly as I was attempting to try this lovely thing on. So, I called and reported that one. It also didn't fit, the size 12, was too tight and pulled when you bend your arm, and around the back, i.e., you couldn't drive a car comfortably in this dress. You could, however, lie down, just flat, and be comfortable. So if you don't intend on moving, it will be fine. Then, along came Polly, I mean, the 3rd dress. So as I opened the 3rd dress up, and it still smelled of something strong, such as a detergent of some type, I finally gave up. I thought, well, it is a cute dress, hopefully I can launder it and get the stench out. However, after reading several more of these illustrious reviews from my fellow patrons, I am now scared to actually wash it before I can wear this lovely frock, for fear it will fall apart at the seams, i.e., like the gals who said the entire placket ripped thru, in the laundry. Such fine quality. So at this point, I am paralyzed by fear regarding this dress, and haven't decided what to do. If I can muster the courage to keep this, I will certainly wash it, before I wear it though, as I have no clue what this potent odor is that permeates this fine frock. Also, it is rather hard to fit, as it is sized rather small/tight thru the back/shoulder area. Roll the dice if you like, but just know this is a problem child.

Versatile dress, fun and comfortable
I had ordered multiple sizes of this dress, since I'd recently lost weight, until I finally settled on size 8, which fits perfectly. I am 5'7", 136 lbs. Strangely, all 4 dresses I ordered had the same unexpected feature: the last button closest to the bottom is sewn on with dark red thread, instead of dark navy like the rest of the buttons. When I called Customer Service, they said it shouldn't be like that, so they sent a replacement. But the replacement's bottom button was still sewn on in red thread. Weird. Doesn't show in the online photos. Maybe it's intentional, since it was on all four dresses I received, but it is strange. In the end, I kept the size 8 that fit me, despite the one-button red thread, because, overall I really like the dress and plan to wear it often. I was worried it would need ironing after washing, but it looks fine without pressing! I will wear it with boots and either bare legs or tights/leggings. I love it. The red-thread button on the last button should either be shown clearly in images or described so people won't be surprised like I was--otherwise, I would've given it 5 stars.
