Women's Petite Short Sleeve Pattern Georgette Pintuck Dress
Give it a chance
I was hesitant to order this dress because of so many negative reviews, but am actually very happy with this dress and I received lots of compliments when I've worn it. I'm 5'5", 145 lbs, with a 38" bust. based on other reviews, instead of buying my usual size 12 to cover my bust without clinging, I'd purchased a size 10. That was the right decision because I didn't have any of the gaping problem on top yet the bottom still fit well. The armhole holes are still a bit low for my taste, but I wore a nude-colored slip underneath which gave me the coverage I wanted. Since it really is only a cap sleeve, I paired it with a navy cardigan and sandals for work.

Great summer work dress
Great, cool summer work dress. Our goddaughter loves it. Can move into fall with sweater or jacket.

I loved the color of this dress. Just gorgeous. But the fit was for a body with no curves. I am 5'11, 150, and I found this to just hug in the wrong spots on my curves. It was just a little too long to pull off such a bad fit. If you are thin and not to curvy, this would be a great addition to your wardrobe; it could easily transition between day and night.

Did Not Fit Me Well, But Might Fit Others
This dress did not fit me well, so I returned it. My figure is too curvy or rounded.
The color is more bright orange than red. In the photo it looked red or red-orange.
The packaging was overboard, the dress was shipped in a plastic bag then enclosed in its own cardboard box.

Glad I took a chance!
Like some others, I was nervous about ordering this dress after reading some of the negative reviews. I am so glad I decided to give this dress a try!
Color: It is very bright! If you are not a person that likes to wear bold colors, don't get this one. I think the color is great. The orange is very bright, but has a depth to it that makes it pretty, not garish. Not sure my fair skin could handle it during winter, but it looks good with my (sorta) tan summer skin.
Fit: I went with a 4 Petite, and it fits like a glove. A 4 Regular is my usual size in dresses, but I went for the petite in this one, as I could see from the picture that the cut was a bit longer than I prefer (I'm 5'5" and the petite hits me just slightly above the knee). The top is drapey, which I expected and like.
Quality: Totally satisfied. The material is lightweight but not cheap-feeling, and drapes nicely.
Very happy! Thanks, Land's End!

Cute, Comfy and Flattering
Even though this dress does not have the sleeves that are pictured in the photo (they are more like cap sleeves), it is still darling! I think the dress is fun, youthful, but appropriate. It is great for spring, summer, and the beginning of fall! I am small up top and large on the bottom, yet the dress hangs perfectly. I am fairly short so I think I might get it hemmed a couple of inches, but over all I really like this dress and have worn it several times.

This elegant, comfortable dress gets noticed!
The richly colored pattern looks like an old tapestry,. The pintucks make you look slimmer, but the dress is generously cut and comfortable. The first time I wore this (to run errands on the way to a theater date), I got well over a dozen compliments. And it is an easy-care dress. No downsides to this one!

Didn't quite fit
This dress is beautiful and I loved the light fabric. But it was a little too loose on top and too tight on the waist, so I had to return it.

I love this dress. I was hesitant after reading the reviews but I decided to take a chance on it. It is kind of on the long side, but that's ok because I'm about 5'10". I ordered the size 8, which is generally my normal size, and it fit perfectly. I'm so excited to wear this dress. It is a little more orange-orange in color, instead of the red-orange in the picture, but the color is really fun. Love this dress.

Not Like Picture
I was so excited about this dress... But when I finally received it, I realized that there weren't any sleeves! I took all of my measurements and compared it to the size chart, but it looked so frumpy. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who has curves or is bigger than a size 6/8.
