The ever-classic shirtdress can shift from feminine to flirty, depending on how you style it — and how buttoned-up you wear it. We love all the retro details: the slightly splayed collar, fitted bodice, and gathered skirt. The pop of print — in a dot or stripe motif — keeps the look modern. Self-belt. Below-knee length. Lightweight cotton poplin. Three-quarter sleeves with notched cuffs. Imported.
I love this dress. I bought it in both the dot and the stripes and have two different looks. The dots are just fun, bright and summery. The stripes are a little more serious, I wore the stripes with a yellow belt and shoes and had a nice look. I got many compliments on both, from women my age AND the graduate students I teach. Runs true to GH sizing, nice top of knee length.

I wore this today and got many compliments. Very 1950's feel to it. I like that the skirt is somewhat billowy. The fabric is lightweight and doesn''t wrinkle much. The construction is not terribly sturdy, so I don't expect this will be a wardrobe staple. None the less, I just returned to order the striped version! Sale price is good, but I wouldn't pay more for this quality.
I love shirtdresses and I was really excited to receive this one.....until I tried it on. The cotton fabric is kind of stiff, not soft and flowy. The cut is for someone who doesn't have much up front, which can be a common problem with front buttons. The overall appearance....fabric, print, cut, style, was not what I expected. I regretfully had to send it back.

Ordered this for my daughter in South America. The length is great, the weight is perfect for transition from their summer to winter. The grey/white will be perfect paired with any of her cardi's.
