Women's Knit Matte Jersey Shirred Surplice Dress
Classy little black dress
This is now my go-to little black dress.. I can dress with a cardi for work... and then leave cardi off and add jewellery for a night out. Fits perfectly... and is very flattering.... I always wear size Medium in LandsEnd... medium is a great fit!

Sadly this simple little dress is just not up to snuff. The fabric is nasty, very polyester, synthetic feeling, and heavy. Reminds me of old-lady polyester slacks from the 1970s. And the cut of the dress is just not quite right: way too loose in the arm holes, a bit too long, just frumpy and boxy overall. I'm really surprised how poorly this dress stacks up in comparison to the picture and to the MANY other similar LE dresses that I have. I had to look closely to make sure I hadn't been sent the wrong dress by mistake.

I love everything about this dress! The fabric is the right weight to wear anytime of year, and the right texture to be fade-resistant, and not collect dog hair. (This is a very important consideration in my house!) The neckline is so flattering on this curvy lady! The slight gathering at the waist is very flattering also. Truly if this dress appears in other colors, I will probably buy them all. I may end up even needing another black one, as I can tell I'll be wearing this thing to death! I am a figure - 8 shaped 1X and this dress is fantastic for my shape. In fact, from the pictures, this appears to be one of those glorious garments that looks better with some curves!

A classic dress
Beautiful dress that is so comfortable to wear! I think I might be able to get all four seasons from it depending on how I accessorize it. It really is a classy "little black dress"!!

Love It - Great Year-Round and For Many Occasions
I bought this thinking it would be nice to wear out at night. It's a little thick and fancy for a casual event, but would work great as a dress to wear to weddings, funeral, nice dinners out and even work. My only criticism is that it is a little loose by the arms (if you zoom in you can see that on the model) but I think it's okay. I'm 5'11" and typically a size 12 in sleeveless dresses. This dress hit just above my knees and the waist is pretty well situated.

I'm petite, 5'3" and weighs 117 lbs. The size xs 2-4 regular fit perfectly. I probably could go for petite, but I like the longer length, age appropriate. The fabric is heavy, so using it for all year round wouldn't be my choice, a great outfit for cooler days/night.

The dress is very pretty, but it runs small.
The dress runs small. It would best fit a younger woman who doesn't have a 50- year-old's curve!

Perfect fit, especially for petites!
I love this dress! I was looking for a little black dress that could easily be worn at work or on a date. This piece is sexy but also modest enough to wear at the school where I work. The fabric is fluid, which is great since I have some curves and seems like it will not wrinkle. I am 5'2", 100-105 lbs, and small-boned. The width of the dress' shoulders makes my small shoulders seem more balanced and the shirring accentuates my waist. The length is perfect and hits just at the knee. Can't wait to wear it!

a big disappointment
I have at least 6 Land's End knit dresses, so I assumed that this fabrication would be supple and comfortable. It's not; it's heavy, scratchy and springy. I'm 5'7", and about 150lbs. While I take a 10 in virtually all other manufacturers, LE dresses are so stretchy, I always order a Small. This dress falls to about the same length on me as on the model, and fits my shoulders, waist and hips perfectly, but the crossover shirring fits like a vise over my 38C chest, so the sizing doesn't work either.

Too heavy and too bulky looking
1. This dress weighs at least two pounds—really uncomfortable for the summer.
2. I am XS petite, and the dress is black, but it makes me look fat. The shirring is too bulky, and it makes me look square.
