Women's Elbow Sleeve Pattern Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
It's a very casual, versatile, comfortable dress - something you can easily throw on and look put together without being dressed up. Perfect for running day to day errands, going to the park, and around the house. Even though it's casual and comfortable for that, I can see it being accessorized for more events and activities.
It does run large, and is pretty busty. I'm not too terribly of a thin person (5'1 - 110 for reference) and I went with the XXS (which still is a comfy, looser fit) . The chest area has ample room (30DD), and fits me pretty well (not too tight or too loose). It's open, but is not so revealing I'd have to wear a cami...it's honestly perfect.
Overall, I like the dress and ordered it in another color for the versatility factor. At the sale price, this is a steal.

This is my favorite dress!
This is my favorite dress. I have worn it to a wedding, to church, to work, it is very all purpose. It is comfortable and flattering as well. I am plus-sized and feel it is a great fit for me. I always get compliments when I wear this.

Beautiful dress - especially for a nursing mama!
I bought this dress to wear to my sister-in-law's wedding, and was SO very happy with it! Comfortable, drapey fabric that didn't wrinkle after sitting in the car for a few hours, looked great with a nice statement necklace, and best of all - it is nursing friendly! I've worn it several times, to work events and out to dinner, and always feel slim and trim (at 5'3", 165 lbs, with two small children, I am anything but slim or trim lol) I ordered the Large to fit while I was still nursing my daughter, and it is a little big, so I've ordered the pink floral in Medium, and it fits perfectly. The elbow length sleeves are just THE BEST. So flattering and they hide a multitude of sins. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this dress!

I needed something pink quickly in the middle of December. Thank the Lord that I found this dress! The colors are lovely, the fit is so flattering and the fabric is really soft and stretchy. Imagine yoga pants made into a dress and you're on the right track. The neckline is super flattering and the pleating below the waist hides a multitude of holiday season sins! Thanks, Lands End! I'm off to order a few more!

Super cute dress for casual wear, or night time wear!
This dress is so cute! I'm definitely purchasing the bright pink one ASAP. For reference I'm 5'3, and 145 pounds and in my picture I'm wearing a small. This dress drapes over my pudge on my belly and makes everywhere else look fabulous! I highly recommend this!

Love this dress!
I love the style and print on this dress. I find they fit a little large. For a fun evening out, just the right amount of busty! I'd probably pin the front if I were wearing it to work.

Fits like a dream
I ordered this dress in size L after getting the blue floral pattern and loving it. I am 5'3" and 215 lbs and carry my weight in my midsection and bust (bra size 38J). This dress looks amazing on me! Because of my bust size it's almost an empire waist on me, but not quite. It creates a lovely hourglass shape and the skirt hits right at my knees. I washed it before wearing to avoid any dye transfer under the arms and the dress kept its shape. So glad I have two--I bought them at the sale price but this dress might just be worth full price.

Regular Vs Tall Fit
I own this dress in a regular size (sleeveless) and just bought the tall size, and there are some fit differences that I want to note. I am 5'11" with height in the legs, usually a size 16, bought this in an XL. The regular fit is about 3 inches above my knee, the tall fit comes to within an inch of my knee. The regular fit at the waist is more like an empire, the tall waist fit is a bit lower at the natural waist. I'm undecided about how I feel about this lower fit -- it makes my waist look a bit smaller, but it makes the boob area look a little odd and long since the crossover goes down to the waistline. In both dresses the neckline is just slightly lower than what I'd be comfortable wearing to work. I've been pinning the chest of the regular dress to reduce coworkers staring at my boobs. The tall is going to have the same issue. I do love the sleeves -- I wear these under blazers/sweaters frequently, so I prefer to have my shoulders covered so as not to have to wash the sweater/blazer every time. The sleeves are a nice, but unusual length, about two inches above my elbow. If you're sensitive about your upper arms, these will provide some great coverage.

I love it!
I love how this dress looks on me. I am 5'2", 150 lbs, 36-29-41 (give or take an inch), and the size petite small (LE vanity sizing!) navy dress is very flattering. It smooths over my stomach and thighs. I think it would flatter less curvy figures as well. I do have fat arms and the sleeves are snug/fitted, which might bother some people, but it feels fine because of the knit fabric and I think it might actually look weird if they were loose. The reviewer that suggested 3/4 length sleeves makes a good suggestion, because who has cute elbows? 4 stars because the print is screened rather than part of the fabric, which means it will eventually start to flake with enough washings. At this sale price though, I almost want to order an extra for when it does wear out!
