Women's Sleeveless Ponté Sheath Dress with Pockets
very versatile dress
I own this dress in the 'punch' color and in brown. I would have probably got another color yet if available as I love the fabric, the way the dress fits and how I, even in the winter time can wear it with a turtleneck or blouse underneath. Order a size up, as it is too fitting in your regular size; at least it was for me. Great dress!

Fit is fantastic, wish I had bought it in every color
This dress is great - the cut is flattering and the fabric hides a multitude of sins! I wish I had bought this in more colors than just the black. Hoping that LE brings it back.

Great quality and style. Love it!
I dislike writing reviews but just had to take the time to comment on this dress.
The quality of the fabric is amazing - it drapes beautifully and even though it is a sheath it covers a multitude of figure flaws. I have the Celestial blue - which is petty much navy - and it looks incredibly elegant. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion but you will always feel comfortable and confident in this dress. Absolutely LOVE the pockets! - not easy to find on any women's dress. Sorry I waited so long to take a chance on this dress since my size is now sold out. I will definitely keep my eye out for others in my local tore .

Good dress for many occasions
I ordered this dress to wear to my daughter's baptism. I am 5'4", 150 lbs, 34e (breast feeding, 4 months postpartum). The 10 regular fit great; 10 petite was a bit too short and snug. The color is nice (celestial blue, which is basically navy.). The dress is very comfortable and easy to dress up or down. I can wear it to work, dinner, church and weddings. Wish I had bought another color while they were in stock!

Lovely Jackie-O dress.
I saw this dress at Sears in black and almost bought it but thought the color was too blah for spring. When I saw the punch color on-line, I snapped it up on sale. It is a gorgeous shade of CORAL RED that Jackie-O would have loved! I'm 5'4", 122 lbs and the size 4 fits me like a glove (like it was tailor made for me). Note: I am small busted. If you're larger on top, make sure to size up, since there's not much room in there. Take a chance on the color. I can't wait to wear this dress to my cousin's wedding in August.

I've decided to keep this dress and wore it yesterday with tights and oxfords. The weight of this ponte fabric is really nice. I think I will get three-season wear out of it, and I look forward to wearing it with a cardigan and flats this summer.
I'm between sizes in Lands End clothes, and I probably could have sized down on this dress. It is made with a long zipper in the back which is totally unnecessary- I can slip this dress on over my head without doing the zipper at all. The zipper would make more sense on the side than in the back, where it bulks up too much, especially in a slightly-too-large size. But overall, I like this dress and I'm happy with it. I think the seams and fabric are very flattering.

Too many seams
If there wasn't a seam down the front middle and around the waist, it might have been OK. While stepping into it I got caught in the pocket pouch, that needs to be designed better. Sent it back, too bad I really liked the sable color and the over all cut.

Very Flattering & Great for all Seasons
I bought this dress in the "punch" color, and I have to disagree with the other reviews- I LOVE the color. I would describe it as a ripe tomato red. I looks amazing with a little black bolero sweater, black tights, and a wide black belt. I just feel happier wearing bold colors like this. The ponte fabric is amazing since it glides over trouble spots without clinging. I also bought the long sleeved ponte dress- it's more of a sexy '50s look, while this dress is more of a fun mod "60s shape. The length is perfect - hits just above the knee on me (5'5"). I too have found that Lands' End dresses in the past have run about 2" too short on me, but these ponte dresses are exactly right. I am also thrilled that I can wear this dress without tights when the weather gets warm!

Fits well, better length than most.
My measurement are an exact 2x. I ordered that size and this fits beautifully. The skirt is a better length than most LE dresses: I'm just under 5' 8" and it hits me just at the top of the knee. The punch color is a bit brighter than it appears in the picture--a sort of orangey-fuchsia rather than a bright red. Unfortunately, they are sold out in sable. This is one I'd love to see come back repeatedly in many colors--I'd buy them all.
