Women's Sleeveless Pattern Ponté Welt Pocket Dress
I am 5'4" and weigh 125. I am not ready to look dowdy at 64 but do not want to look like I am trying too hard to be current in my fashion choices. A 4P was perfect. It is super comfortable and I feel spritely. Several of my friends who love the dress were disappointed that this particular style is no longer available. You really should bring it back in the solid colors as well. The key hole style just isn't as desirable.

Too big for me, but a good dress
If you know your typical size at Land's End, go for it. The fabric was quality, the dress was lined, it was comfortable and classy, but it was just too big for me. I am 5'3" 115lbs ... I ordered a regular size 2 and it was too big. The arm holes were too large and the cut of the dress flared on the sides at the lower hip/thighs making me look wider than I am. I should have ordered a petite 2 or 0 but my favorite print was sold out (deep green dress with lacy blue pattern). Land's End: Bring back that color and I'll order it! It was a beautiful dress.

I loved the color of this dress!
The Sleeveess Pattern Ponte' welt Pocket dress is a beautiful, high quality dress. I wore it for Easter, and got countless compliments on how pretty it was. It fit perfectly, and I love the fact that it has pockets too. The pockets are hidden, since they disappear into the pattern. I am going to buy more of this style dress, because it fits my body style so well. I'm 5'4", 137 lbs, full figure, and bought a size 8. It slenderized me, and looked very expensive, and classy. Thanks so much Lands End!

Perfect Fit, and the fabric is an excellent Choice
I own two of these dresses (the brown stripe and the black and white that looks like a herringbone pattern) before this one. Held off on this purchase only because I wanted fall dresses. Glad I didn't put this off any longer. I bought the size 8 and it's a good fit out of the bag. The dress falls to just above my knee, which is a great length because I've got great looking legs--even at 56. I'm 5' 7" and about 140-145 pounds. I also purchased the dress sweater in the Celestial blue and that was a great choice as well. Highly recommend the dress. If the quality continues on this line, then I will continue to purchase. Glad that the sizing is stable. I've been a customer since 1984.

Fits perfect...fells great!
I didn't know what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised! I tried to order more, but much to my dismay it is out of stock in my size.

Good fit....little long
I really like the fit and look of this dress. The only thing I didn't like was the length...it's a little longer than I expected and than I normally wear. I'm keeping it though, because I really do think it's pretty!

Armholes were gappy
I bought this dress in a 1X as I need the room through the bust, and XL sometimes doesn't work. It fit across the bust, but the armholes gapped too much and my bra showed from the side. I could have worn a sweater over the top. I tried one on with it but it didn't work either. The material was exceptionally nice and one wouldn't have to wear a slip underneath. However, the cut was weird on me and I returned it. I have a rather large hour-glass shape and this dress just didn't work for me. It might have worked in an XL but I didn't like it well enough to reorder.

I purchased this dress in the drake green print. The fabric weight is perfect for year round wear. The fit is perfect and runs true to size. This is my third Ponte` Welt Pocket Sheath and I love everything about the style of this dress: the neckline, the empire waist, the pockets ad the fit. The tailoring is exceptional. It is perfect for work or a night out. I purchased the supima dress cardigan in navy to cover my shoulders and upper arms. Love this dress!!

Good quality but fit could be better
High quality material and construction. I usually take a 10 or 12 in LE. Ordered a 12 and it is way too loose around the arm holes (gaping open) and large through the waist making it look a bit shapeless. I would try it in a 10 except that I find the neckline too high, uncomfortable and unflattering. Would be better a bit open scoop neck. It looks like the new keyhole neckline will be better on me so I'll try that one next. Love the pocket design!

Such a nice dress! The fabric is substantial but not at all stiff. The print is eye catching, vivid and flattering. The cut of the dress is also very flattering and LOVE the pockets. This dress is a winner.
