Nice or hideous?

Not hideous but not great either

DavetheCat2001 Fri 21-Apr-17 13:19:53

I don't like it.

I quite like it actually

It looks very unflattering. It manages to make that super slim model look boxy.

Agree that it looks a very unflattering shape. Wouldmake me look way bigger than I am. There's much nicer (and more flattering gingham dresses out there

I don't like it because it's shapeless. The drop hem and sleeve ties make it worse.

Possibly would look cute on a 6 year old but not an adult.

Very unflattering.

And the gingham reminds me of a school uniform (but maybe that's an Australian thing).

It's a no from me. I had one back in the 80's it wasn't a good look.

It's quite nice but I agree you'll find prettier gingham dresses out there.

I love it! Looks like I'm the only one though.

My son's GF has this dress! She is 21 and has a lovely, size 10 figure and it does nothing for her. It is a fashion, though.

Cheapskate - hmmm I'm 38 confused

hippadoppaloppagorillapig Fri 21-Apr-17 20:18:28

I like it. I can see how it would be potentially unflattering though.

I like the gingham but not the shape. Could you have a belt done up at the empire line? Might make it look a bit twee though.
