Women's Elbow Sleeve Pattern Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
My go-to dress for summer
I love this dress! I love all of the Lands End fit and flare dresses, but I especially love this one because it has sleeves! I normally wear a 2x, but these run a bit large, so I ordered a 1x and it fits perfectly. It did shrink a tiny bit after I washed it, but that was to be expected. I wear this dress everywhere, dressed up with heels or down with flat sandals. Every time I have worn it, total strangers have complimented me. Please continue to carry this dress in more colors/patterns. I love the sleeveless fit and flare dresses, but I don't like to show my arms and I don't always want to wear something over my dress. I have worn this dress to an outdoor when it was 93 degrees and I was perfectly happy all day!

Comfy summer dress, perfect for work
I really like this dress, although I'm uncertain whether it's flattering or not. I am 5'10' but had to order the Plus, rather than the Tall, because I'm a 2X. The "belt" seems to ride high on my waist, but hides my stomach fairly well. I might order another pattern. The fabric is soft and smooth.

problems with fabric (my opinion)
I bought this in the navy floral for a wedding this summer. The fabric was faded like an old t.shirt that had been washed 100 times. It looked like something that was hanging in the back of the closet for years. It was not a dressy dark colour at all. Also, it was very thick along with the built in slip. I would think this would be rather hot for the summer. Returning.

Very nice dress, but I recommend with caution as it shrank a LOT when washed.
I bought this dress for my daughter, and she loved it, so much that we ordered 2 more in different prints (and one is the sleeveless variation). However, I washed and dried the first one exactly as it says on the label, and it shrank a good 2 inches in length, and perhaps 1 inch in the sleeves (we have just received the more recent order and can do a direct comparison of washed to unwashed). It still fits and she is not unhappy, but I have read up on rayon and found that it may continue to shrink each time it is washed (and I know that cotton by itself shrinks as well)....Perhaps I should wash the first dress a second time and see if it shrinks even more, before she wears the newer ones. I will not put it in the dryer again (though the info I read suggested that even just water of any temperature may cause rayon to shrink).

Cut Waaay too low
I'm a 38C bust, and always wear a Medium, but this dress was cut way too low. I didn't think a camisole would look right underneath it, so I returned it.

Comfortable and looks fabulous!
If I could wear the same dress everyday, this would be it. My problem areas are my tummy and hips. I'm 5'3" and 135 lbs. I normally wear a size 6 petite, but the XS petite fits just right in this dress. The top is fitted so even though it's low cut, it stays in place. The skirt has nice pleats to hide my tummy, but it's not so full it looks like maternity. I wear the flame-multi infinity scarf with it to work to hide the low neckline. I love the sleeve- I think it dresses it up just a little so it doesn't look like it belongs on the beach.

Fits like a dream
Skims over problem areas, has nice bust coverage and it just to my knees (I'm 5'8") It is a very flattering fit and the material is perfect for spring/summer

Love, love, love it!
Gorgeous, bold print. So soft. Beautiful, gently bust-enhancing. My new favorite dress. Buying another color!

Great fit--very flattering
I'm 5'8, 175 pounds. I wear a size 12 in pants and have a 36D chest. I'm pretty boxy too--no waist at all! I bought the Medium and it fit perfectly! I read the reviews that said it fit a little big, and it's true. So the M was perfect. It's a very flattering dress, hits at my knees and doesn't accentuate my chest in a weird way like a lot of dresses do. I wear it to church and work and always get lots of compliments! It's a classy dress!

Love this dress!
I have worn this dress to work twice this spring and have gotten tons of compliments on it. I do wear with a scarf as I'm a bit uncomfortable with how revealing the top is with my not small chest. Very forgiving of my midsection and it feels lovely on and makes me feel lovely.
