Great dress

I love bright colored dresses that sing summer and this one fit the bill. The fit is great, I found the smocking is forgiving for larger chests, and the straps are adjustable.
The colors are vibrant and the cotton soft, and has only gotten softer with each wash.
It’s very comfortable and looks great as is, or with a denim jacket for cooler temps.
Highly recommend!

Beautiful sundress

I’ve always wanted a Tea dress like the ones I buy for my granddaughters - beautiful fabric, style and craftsmanship. Saw this adult sized dress and ordered it. I’m 5’2”, 125 lbs, 36D bra size. Ordered M. Could have ordered small. Generous amount of fabric, ankle length. I shortened it a few inches. Bust size is very flexible. Don’t need a bra with this dress. It’s a beautiful botanical print and the colour and fabric are gorgeous. Lots of compliments when I wear it! I usually wear jeans and a t-shirt… This dress is very feminine.
Love the pockets! Appreciated the other reviews which helped my decision to buy this dress.

Easy summer dress

When I asked my 7 year old son what he thought about wearing a matching shirt to my dress, he immediately gasped and said YES! He, his sister, and I are excited to wear these matching plaids together this Mother’s Day and other special occasions, or every day! It isn’t often moms and boys get to coordinate, and we love the chance!
This dress is really pretty! I tried it a few ways and prefer the straps tucked in altogether… the top is snug enough it isn’t going anywhere. I also really like it with a denim jacket on top. I would say this runs a big generous, and is a flexible fit with the adjustable straps, smocking, and loose fit below. I’m a size 6 and the S fit me well.

This dresses colors are so vibrant and the fabric buttery soft. I absolutely love that it has pockets. I am only 5’1 but the dress wasn’t too too long on me because I can adjust the straps. I wear a 10 normally and the medium fit perfectly.
