Women's Pattern Matte Jersey Dress
Love this dress with some caveats
Overall I have to say that I love this dress for 3 main reasons - soft/comfortable fabric, flattering for a pear shape, and is professional yet sassy with a pair of black boots for work. I have to agree with the other reviewers that the material is heavy, but it so thin and stretchy it feels like pajamas. I am also *not* a fan of the gold buttons. All of my jewelry is silver but I loved the flattering look of the dress too much to make this a dealbreaker. I had no issues with the length of the dress like other reviewers described. I am 5'5" and a true 6-8 and the small fit perfectly everywhere.

I was disappointed. It was way too short on this 5'5" plus size lady. Also, the buttonholes began to ravel the very first time I tried it on. Too bad--I loved the fabric, but fit and detailing didn't measure up.

Quality fabric and comfortable fit
I was happy with this dress when I opened the package. The fabric is high quality, and the pattern is subtle yet has some personality. I ordered my size (S), and the fit is good (I am 5'4", ~125 lbs, 36 B chest.) Nothing against the model shown on the page here, but I thought it looked better on (showed more curves without being tacky). The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars was because I struggled a bit with the right placement/tightness of the waist cord, but I am considering buying a belt separately to match the dress.

I was very happy to see LE with a dress design that would work on my less than ideal figure. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the execution. The fabric was very heavy and would be too warm to wear in the spring.
Hopefully LE will use this design in the pima cotton fabric.

Petite Size is a PERFECT Fit!
I ordered this dress in hopes that it would work for a couple of business trips that are coming up. I just pulled it out of the box today to try on and I am in love with it! I am barely 5 feet tall and about 120 lbs. I ordered the XS petite. The dress is cut perfectly to enhance my waist and cover up what I don't like. It appears this will not need to be ironed much. It looked fabulous straight out of the box, so I assume it will pack and travel well. I can see it's versatility already - You could wear it as-is without a belt. I can see it with a belt, or even with another shirt under it with the buttons open. You could wear it with boots in the winter or heels in the summer...I just ordered another one in celestial blue. =)

I am very pleased with this dress. Fits very well. Fabric flows without being clingy. I like the fact that it shows my shape without shouting that I am a female. Yes, as another reviewer stated, I too, would have preferred sliver or pearl buttons. Also, I wish it was just a smidge (an inch) longer in length. It hits me right above the knee. However, this is a fantastic versatile dress. I look forward to wearing it.

details don't match fit
This dress fit me PERFECTLY. I am sending it back for 2 reasons:
1)the cuffs on the sleeves are stitched and i can't roll them down so they show bulk under sweaters
2) the buttons on the tweed print are brass or gold tone and don't match the rest of my accessories
I also wish they had made this is in flat charcoal gray with neutral buttons. Its a great dress with great fit and seaming, but the devil is in the details for me, and this time it just didn't work.
