Women's Pattern Matte Jersey Dress
Very cute and versatile
This is going to become a travel staple in my wardrobe. It's very versatile and really much cuter than it looks in the picture. Shirt dresses like this often look drab on me. Not this one, it has a Nice flattering cut. Like other reviewers, I have opted to go with my own belts when I wear this, and choice of belt and accessories can completely change the look. I did a wide black patent belt with gold buckle, long gold necklace, and a pair of knee high black boots and wore this out to a rock concert. With tights and heels and a cardigan with a coordinating thin belt it was perfect for work. Unlike other reviewers, the gold buttons really don't bother me, I kind of like them with other gold accessories. It's easy enough to change them though, and I wouldn't let that stop me from buying an otherwise great dress. For reference, I'm 5'4", hourglass shape, and the S hits me right at the knee, overall fit is very flattering.

Did not look right on me.
The material is nice and I liked the collar. Unfortunately, it did not look right on me and I had to send it back.

Great for a nursing mom
This is another go-to dress for when I need to go into the office. I can easily nurse my 3-month-old daughter, and the skirt is forgiving for the baby weight I still need to lose. This dress also doesn't wrinkle and hides spit up stains fabulously. Please make this in more colors. Dresses like this with sleeves are pretty rare.

Tried to love it...
Bought it for my business trip, the dress is kind of heavy and didn't seem to look good on me... tried to love it, but returned...

Incredibly flattering for an hourglass
This dress is incredibly flattering to my figure. The princess seams really highlight the waist. My only disappointment is when I tried to buy a second one in the navy blue, it wasn't available in my size.

This dress fits wonderfully!
There is nothing uncomfortable about the way this dress fits. Like the picture on the model, the dress fit snug where it was supposed to and hung fabulously in all the right places. I am a petite 5'4" and I have a difficult time finding a dress to fit comfortably around my D cup chest, but this dress is perfect. I also love that you can wear it dressed up or down. I bought it to wear to work and have gotten lots of compliments on it.

Surprisingly heavy in your hands, but light weight and comfortable to wear. The gold buttons are ugly but can be easily replaced. I plan on removing the fabric belt and using a black belt or ribbon to break up the pattern a little. I am 5'3 and 155 lb with most of my weight in my hips. This dress compliments my curves and has beautiful pleats that fall perfectly and the fitted top is great to accentuate my waist and bust. I do not find the dress "dawdy" or plain, the pattern is quite nice and can be dressed up or down with boots, flats or heels. The only drawback is the ugly buttons...not sure what designer thought bright gold buttons were a good idea but they look odd.....

This dress is perfect. I ordered it in a petite small. I am under 5' tall and about 140 lbs. It fits like a glove. I was worried the arms would be too tight, which is a frequent problem with tops. I have a muscular build. The arms fit great. The material is heavy and thick but still perfect for summer. The dress falls and moves perfectly. I plan to wear it with a pair of ballet flats or a black leather knee high boots depending on the event. It's casual enough to wear with flip flops, but can totally be dressed up for a night out. Worth every penny.

I really wanted to like this but found the style frumpy and heavy-- and despite the surplus fabric it still managed to hug my belly and hips and made by 34D breasts look even larger than they are.

Give it a chance...:-)
So I tried this on when I first got it in the mail, and hated it for some reason. Waited a couple of days and tried it again with a skinny black belt and a cute pair of flats, and I'm good again. I think you have to give it a day or two to figure out the way to wear it best for you. It really is a cute little dress and I love that it has kind of a twirly skirt since I have some hips. I'm a plus by the way - this is my usual 1 x. I like enough I will probably order the black one and suggest that Lands End offer it in some other colors, and maybe a inch longer hem? I do love that it has sleeves!! Hope this helps any of you who may be on the fence about either purchasing, or keeping. Thanks!!
