This dress... is... amazing. I love everything about it: the color, the weight of the fabric, the fit. It's so perfect for cooler weather! I love how cute it looks with tights and ballet flats. I'm going to be wearing this dress for many, many years to come! I decided to invest more in my clothing to get well-made, ethically-made items even if it means having fewer items in my closet, and I have no regrets, especially with this dress. :)
I adore this beautiful autumn-colored dress! As noted by others, this dress has chameleon properties! It looks chocolatey brown from far away, and tweedy up close. I love that the lighter color in the check pattern is neither white nor cream, but a rich camel color. This pattern is gorgeous and I'd love to see it reincarnated in future seasons! The soft linen is a thicker weight, which makes it perfect for fall-winter. It looks great with a wool blazer, or a cozy pullover sweater. The fit, length, and look are all perfect!
My 3rd #12
The fit is perfect. I love the feel of wearing linen. The Balmoral is the third color of #12 I am fortunate to own. I live in linen dresses, for my work as a pediatric hospital chaplain, at home as I garden, bake, knit, and sew, and out and about for dinner or shopping with my husband. Comfortable, breathable linen, in flattering shades and styles. Thank you, Pyne & Smith!
The texture and look of the Balmoral Check linen are both stunning… detailed up close and a rich brown from afar. I think it will look great layered with a red sweater or long trench, and so far I’ve been wearing it on its own for an easy outfit.
This is a beautiful dress! The subtle pattern black and brown pattern creates a rich chocolate color. The fabric feels substantial, and the cut is beautiful.
