Very comfortable, mostly flattering
The good quality of the material.
As with any purchase from a new designer, I am concerned with fit. Given I am 78 years old, 5’3” and 175 pounds - I don’t wish to look foolish trying a new look. This dress delights me. I sent in my measurements asking for recommendations re/ size and style. It fits beautifully - even the bust darts are perfectly placed. I will be wearing it with narrow black linen pants. Perhaps at a later time, I will shorten it to tunic length. Thank you!

I have been a long time stalker of the brand, but as a plus size my measurements always fell outside of the brand until the sizes were recently extended. I have a lot of linen from other companies & this dress is up there quality wise. The black linen is really nice, soft, medium weight & feels durable. The fit is an inch smaller than the specific garment measurement chart, which is disappointing & I would find it a small fitting 2x. The shoulders are small too. It fits me perfectly but its cut for a small frame with large bust. I don't have any excess room.If my bust were larger, or my shoulders wider I would be disappointed.(I'm approx 47/42/48) I say this as lots of other 2x stuff fits a bit larger in all these areas. Overall, a flattering, great quality dress. Fits small for a 2x.
The black linen is indescribably deep and beautiful. This dress feels good on and is easy to wear. It’s a classic.
I love the shape and simplicity of the dress. It can be worn as a dress or tunic over leggings or jeans. Styled up with great jewelry or a scarf or left alone to be casual. I hope I can purchase in another color soon!!
