Our ladylike dress in midweight cotton voile features a sorbet stripe — refreshingly right for parties alfresco. The styling is sweetly retro with gusseted cap sleeves for coverage, a ballet neck, and a full gathered skirt with optional sash. Elastic waist. Hidden back zip. Above knee length. Cotton lining. Imported.
I loved the style of this dress, the orange stripe, and the fabric, but the fit was simply awful. It fit around the hips, but there was extra fabric around the sides and shoulders, so the top looked misshapen and poorly made. Honestly, it was as if the pattern got lost in the sewing of this dress. I had to return it.

Beautiful, but cut wrong

This dress is so pretty. I am 5'2" 130lbs and I got the 2... it is a cape. Absolutely too big. It is going back. A shame, such a pretty look.

Review 5 for Retro Voile Dress

This dress is well made, and is a soft cotton. The area under the arm is covered by an extra panel of fabric, which is very nice. I ordered a size 6 and find way too much fabric around the waist. It does not look at all like the model. It has lots of fabric gathered and then puckers in an unflattering way. Also, the sash is more of a florescent orange than a coral. Maybe it would look nice with one of GH's thicker leather belts. I'm not investing more in the dress through. For the price point and the fit, not worth keeping.
