Land's End has scored BIG TIME with this year's dresses!
The colors are great and the fit is superb. The fabric is SOFT and washes very well, with no ironing needed. I love the dresses from Land's End this year!!!

My new favorite dress
I love EVERYTHING about this dress! I purchased petite S (I am 5"1" and 130 pounds). The dress fits like it was made for me. I am not a fan of sleeveless, but the coverage is so nice, I may forgo wearing a shrug as planned; it's that flattering, says my husband :) I love the fabric weight, drape, and stretch of the dress. I got the navy/green polka dots, and I already have four events where it would be appropriate just by changing my accessories and shoes to fit the occasion. I haven't been this excited about a new dress since I was a child!

love love love this dress
Recently I lost 50 pounds and wanted a summer dress for weddings that would be more flattering than the old granny sack style or long peasant skirts I used to wear. Took a chance on this dress and I must say I could not be more delighted. I am still slightly overweight and curvy, 5 foot 8, DD chest, and it fits fantastic, looks good, covers what I want covered, and is comfortable. I bought the black and white polka dot and am pairing it with different cotton cardigans in bright colors. The catalog shows yellow and pink, I tried orchid and lobster red and am considering cobalt blue and mint green. I would love to buy another one if I could find a shop around here to try them on. I miss the old virtual models you used to have on your web site.

I'm very curvaceous and this dress looks wonderful on me, even hides my imperfect / extra tummy area. Love it. Can't wait until it warms up so I can wear it! Washed wonderfully, no ironing needed.

I bought the coral and dark blue, both with flowers. I thought the prints were very pretty, and the quality nice. However, the length was too short for my taste. I'm 5'6" and about 130lbs. I usually wear S but I bought the XS. The bust fit perfectly, and the length had the dress hitting above the knee. With the flare skirt, I ultimately decided it wasn't a flattering look for me and I returned them.

82 year old feels like a spring chick in these: lightweight, moves freely along with the body.
Five star fit and comfort (doesn't fight the body during movement). I'm allergic to polyester, so the cotton-rayon combo is welcome. I bought several of these as winter was approaching, so mileage on them is short, but they will be worn at home and elsewhere next spring and summer. Love it.

I just received this dress. What a lovely piece! I Soft material that falls well, does not stick to the body. Fits so well. I was a bit worried looking at the model's fit that this was going to be a little too short, well above the knee but it is not! Just short of the knee. I am 5'7" and a size 14 and the "L" fits like it was made for me. The faux wrap on top is also done well. Usually I end up closing the two panels with a button or a safety pin, when I am in a pinch. But this looks like I don't have to do anything and it will stay well. Can't wait to rock this dress! If you don't own one, go get one. Can't beat the price too!!

Too big on top
The dress was too big on the top and felt too flimsy. I was not happy and had to return it.

Like the cut, miss the old fabric
I just wrote a review for the original cotton dress, but I wanted to put a few words in here too.
I love the style of these dresses, and the fabric is nice too. I just prefer the old original cotton dresses, as the fabric looked better on and seemed to last longer, too. On the modal dresses, I've noticed the pattern dresses I bought (the blue with white flowers, as well as the black grecian leaves maxi) seem to be fading and fuzzing up just a bit after I wore them this summer. I take very good care of my clothes, and my older plain black modal dress has lasted with only light fading after 2+ years.
To sum it up again, I dearly miss the original fabric. Although these dresses still fit nicely and I will continue to buy them, I would by another dress in the original fabric in a heart beat.
