Women's Short Sleeve Knit Lace Panel Welt Pocket Sheath Dress
it may be just a little on the form fitting side. if you like your clothes roomy, go the next size up. i love pockets in everything and do not feel comforable in sleeveless clothes. this is beautiful for work or an evening out.

Not what I expected
This dress looks great in the catalog but I definitely did not like it once it arrived. The fabric is a bulky, heavy stretch. The bodice fits to size and looks nice. However, from the waist down, it appeared as if the skirt portion had been sewn on backwards based on the angle of the seam. It is definitely going back.

Not suitable. With the top lace the dress was too bulky on top.
Will stick with the sleeveless welt pocket little black dress!

Love It ,Love It
This dress is a winner. The fit is perfect and the addition of the sleeves are a plus. The lace makes it dressier but still can be worn to something dressy casual.

Heavy fabric and tight fit
I have several of the sleeveless version and really enjoy the versatility. This one feels much heavier and fits like a sausage casing even though I ordered the same size as my others. The waist is higher and it is too heavy to put a little shrug over. I fear the short sleeves are too little for winter yet too much to cover. Maybe a three quarter…
It is beautiful and I really wanted it to work but lo. it must go back.

Little Black Dress with a Little Something Extra
This dress is all that a woman could ask for when it comes to that all purpose black dress. The fit is classic - smooth and chic. It compliments virtually any body type. The bodice has an over lay of lovely black lace which enhances the dressier aspect of this version over the original incarnations. And the addition of sleeves is well-timed for the Fall cooler weather. The material is a substantial knit fabric that although is advertised to be a "washable" dress, I would say from my experience with the other dresses similar to this one that it might benefit from dry cleaning. Washing had a tendency to cause the hem to lose its shape a bit although not terribly. This dress is a true winner. I am thrilled to have it in my aresenal and have already worn in. I most appreciate Lands' End willingness to listen to their customers wishes by responding quickly with product redesigns. I am stopped routinely on the street of New York and asked where I have purchased my dresses.

LBD for the not so little
This dress will make you look a little busty - I am generously-sized up top, and this just emphasized that. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing. There was a small problem with the central skirt seam poking up, which was solved by pulling the seam from the top and bottom until it laid straight. It's a heavy fabric, so it should keep you nice and warm in these days to come.

Short sleeve welt pocket dress
I have several of the sleeveless variety and love them. I would purchase this style with sleeves- short sleeves and long sleeves if came in colors for work- ie gray, black (without the lace), navy, brown, rich fall colors and came in tall sizes. We need this dress in tall sizes I tried this dress on but did not purchase it but I can see potential if you stay with basics and go with tall sizes too

Perfect! With selves AND flat pockets.
I bought this for an upcoming fall wedding. Being of a certain age, sleeves have become important to me. I love this dress. It covers a multitude of little imperfections in my figure. Good fit, comfortable, flattering, sleeves and pockets! An excellent value. A good tip was offered on this dress, if your hips lean toward the larger size order one side up. I did and as I stated it fits perfectly.

So wanted the sheath with sleeves -- but for work. Too dressy with the lace!
I really wanted to love this. I work in a corporate environment with a strict dress code -- no sleeveless dresses allowed, unless covered at all times with a jacket or sweater. So short sleeves were exactly what I hoped for -- and these were the right length. But part of the appeal of the original sheath was easy care; this version with the lace is labeled "dry clean". NOT what I want or need. And adding the lace overlay ruined it. The point of a simple black dress is that the WEARER gets to make it her own. Dress it up or down. The lace makes it too dressy and inappropriate for work. So two strikes against it. PLEASE consider remaking this -- without the added overlay. Plain, simple black and navy styles would be well appreciated.
I rated it three stars as it's a nice dress -- just totally not appropriate for what I needed and hoped for.
