Women's Elbow Sleeve Pattern Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
Love this dress!
I love this dress! I wore it with a jean jacket, cute tights and boots and received so many compliments. It is so cute and comfortable. It washes up great and is ready to wear from the dryer. I am 5'1" and weigh 108 lbs and the XXS petite fit perfectly. This is my third dress from Land's End this year because they fit me perfectly and are so cute for work.

Good wardrobe staple
I have bought this fit and flare style of dress from Land's End more than ten times - sometimes with sleeves sometimes without. I find that this version with sleeves is a better fit as the sleeveless version sometime gapes around the armhole. The solid color versions are very attractive and practical. I would like to see this in more colors still. Plus sized women like a variety of colors too. You have done this well in the sleeveless version and over the course of many years I have even bought duplicates of colors. I need to mention that when you do patterns for plus sized women, avoid large patterns like big flowers as this just emphasizes our size. Some patterns are much more flattering. Nonetheless I bought even the large patterned dresses as this is a practical and comfortable dress suitable for at home or for going out somewhere special. I expect that this style will have a long life. To provide more variety why not make a dress in this kind of fabric which a skirt which has gores in it so that there is even an nicer flow to the skirt.

Love This Dress!
I am 5'8" and bought the tall size because I wanted a little extra length to wear with boots. It fits great and is very comfortable. I wish they would make one with long sleeves and a little longer in the skirt for winter wear!

Now that it has sleeves it is perfect!
I bought the sleeveless version of this dress a few years ago and love how comfy it is. Felt uncomfortable wearing a sleeveless dress to work (a school) so had to wear a cardigan with it which was too hot in the summer. When I saw that this dress now had sleeves, I had to try it. I am wearing it as I type. I LOVE IT! Fits perfectly and is super comfy. I wish it had a lot more patterns as I'd buy a lot more.

My Favorite Dress
I have this dress is both a solid purple color and in a pattern. I love them both, the one with the pattern is extra flattering. I have a large bust so the top wrap fits me perfectly. I usually have to wear a cami under all wrap dresses but this one is cut so that i can wear it with or without. I seriously love this dress. It's like the perfect dress for a woman with a larger chest and a bit of a tummy.

Very pretty, stylish dress
I just love this dress! It is very flattering, wears well and is super comfortable. I have received many compliments while wearing this dress. This style flatters a pear shape body type.

Shows the lumps and bumps
In previous designs of this syle there was a set in waist piece with gathers/pleats above and below this set in waist in the back. That really is key in hiding the lumps & rolls. When the dress is just straight fabric in the back it shows everything. I also wish there would be more of a choice in the prints. The red print was really garish and the mauve print was cheap looking and boring. .LE had more sophisticated prints and colors in the summer 2014 line and I did buy from that line. I do appreciate the elbow length sleeves if they are not too tight.

Super Comfortable and No Gaping!
Women of all shapes and sizes know all about pinning a surplice top. Lands End has done away with the need to pin with this dress! They've patterned & made a dress that doesn't gape at the surplice neckline so there's no need to pin it! Woo! Thank you! The fabric is a little stiff but after the first wash it's perfectly comfortable.

My sister-in-law turned me on to these dresses. She was wearing a discontinued pattern she bought well over a year ago & the colors were not faded & the dress still held it's nice shape. She has taken this dress on many vacations & it's a fit for any occasion.
I ordered in Petite & regular - I prefer the regular fit as the empire waste sits a bit lower providing a flatter stomach affect. I bought the Blue Indigo Floral, Cactus Flower Floral and Fushia Plum (solid) and I love them all. I'm 5'3", 125lbs and I prefer the small regular. XSmall was too tight in the arms (but the body was a good fit). These are the most comfortable dresses I've ever owned (I'm not typically a dress lover/wearer). I love the fabric, it drapes nicely, is not clingy, is not hot, length is perfect, dress is perfect for casual, travel, can be dressed up nicely with accessories, and is suited for all seasons. I have received so many compliments on these dresses and you certainly cannot beat the sale price!!
