There is a huge amount of material in the front and it looks like a sack. However, I like the colour and it would be cool- if we get another heat wave. I am wondering about altering it and putting 2 long darts in the front under the bust to give it some shape, or wearing with a skinny belt, - or just sending it back.
strawberry - are you talking about the linen one? If so, I have it in blue. I wasn't sure at all so it hung in my wardrobe for 2 months unworn . However, I wore it for the first time last week and loved it. I had planned to wear a skinny belt but was in a rush that morning and forgot. I had so many compliments that I am really pleased I kept it When you wear it loose, it kind of softens after 20 minutes or so and looks a lot less sack-like. Looks fab with flat metallic leather sandals too
It's tricky- I am a neat size 8-10 and work hard at maintaining my figure so although I like and need a cool dress, I don't want one which does bugger all for me. I really like the colour of it and the length is perfect. it just feels like a dinner lday overall.
