I couldn't wear this without removing the elastic around the waist because the waist is very high, yet not empire line. I bought a Size 10 but it could have fit a small 12. The fabric is quite thick so the loose fit for summer is ok. Otherwise it would be a hot dress. I like it overall mainly because the colours are lovely.
This is a lovely little dress with a slightly 50s feel to it. It's well made and I don't normally like matching material belts but this one is wrapped around a chain belt and is really nice. Great price and, as always, delivered quickly.
