Women's Petite Sleeveless Knit Pattern Cotton Modal Keyhole Dress
One of my favorite LE dresses of all time!
In the Spring of 2015 I was able to pick up this dress on clearance in the zebra and lime prints. It quickly became a favorite and I was ecstatic to see it back in stock in three new prints at the end of summer! I purchased the pink and turquoise and am thinking of going back for the blue. The fit on this one is so flattering (the belt nicely accentuates your waist) and doesn't require a cami underneath like the v-neck LE summer dresses. The dress washes up nicely. The fit on me is perfect so I do hang it to dry and haven't experienced any fading or shrinkage. It doesn't need to be ironed even after being line dried. The colors on these new patterns are very vibrant, so do be aware if that's not your thing. As with most LE dresses, I size down. I'm a 2P in other brands but wear an XXS Petite in this one. Thank you LE for the new patterns - more please next summer :).

Though I haven't had a chance to wear it yet (It's still winter in Chicago) I've tried it on and can't wait to wear it. I bought the solid color blue version last summer and received many compliments on it, I think I will receive many more with this one. The colors are vibrant, the fabric is soft to the touch and the style is timeless. I will even be able to wear this dress to work, a winner for me.

Not for me....
I expected the colours to be bright....but not quite this bright. Also it fit large and was generally unflattering on me. The fabric quality was lovely, wish it had worked out better. I have returned it.

Nice material but unflattering
I ordered this dress in the teal blue colour to wear in the Caribbean. The material feels lovely, and looks like it would be a great travel dress, in terms of washing and not wrinkling. However, it was very unflattering one me, so I returned it. I think on a slimmer woman, it may be suitable. At any rate, I was very impressed with Lands's End's shipping of returns from Canada: When I took it to the post office, I found out that the return label had covered the cost of shipping the return! Thank you, Land's End - a big plus when you have to return an item.

Bought this in solid blue when it was available in solid colors. LOVED it. Fit perfectly. Bought another in the turquoise pattern in the same size and it is a completely different dress. It is HUGE. The armholes are HUGE and show my bra and ribcage under my arms. The fabric is completely different as well. I checked the fabric label and sure enough the percentages of cotton, rayon and spandex are different.
Shopping online or by catalog with Lands' End has become a hit or miss experience. There is no conformity when it comes to sizing. Getting tired of having to pay to send things back when I purchase the exact same items in the exact same size and they are all cut completely differently.

comfortable and modest
I am always looking for dresses and skirts that hit below my knee, and at 5'9" that's a tall order. This dress is comfortable and modest, without being frumpy.

One of the best dresses I have gotten from LE
I bought 2 of these when they first came out Floral Punch and Black. I wore them a few times this summer and then took them on vacation. They are cool look neat and are easy for packing, no wrinkles. I got many compliments on them and am hoping LE comes out with more color choices this season. They are perfect throw on dresses that you can dress up or wear casually. KUDOS for this one !!! I will be taking them again in Feb for a cruise vacation ..

Beautiful vibrant dress, longer length great for work
This dress is so vibrant (Turquoise sea floral) and the key hole detail is very flattering, whilst remaining professional for work. I was glad I purchased the dress in Medium size being 5'5" and very busty, I usually opt for larges to accomodate the bust, however with the material/fabric of this dress the medium was stretchy enough, and fitted well. Lengthwise the hem finishes below the knee about 2", again making it ideal for work. I have paired the dress with a selection of cardigans in the same colours and caramel coloured heels. Not shortage of compliments at work - now I want to get all 3 colours.

I Love this dress.
I love the print of the fabric.It is so bright and perfect for an Australian summer.It fits well and
can be dressed up or down so is suitable for multiple uses. I like the longer length which I find
more flattering.Please 'Lands End' make it with sleeves next season so it will be suitable for cooler
weather and evening wear.

Love this dress
I had my eye on this for some time I finely gave in and I'm so glad I did! It fits like a dream & I'm no Barbie doll but its so comfortable while looking stylish.
I don't often wear dresses but this will be great for vacations especially on a cruise.
The fabric has a wonderful hand & drapes so well, I just love this dress!
