Year around quality knit!,
October 15, 2012
By: NanaLiz
from hot south Texas
"Fits perfectly and has to be one of your more flattering cuts in an A line hang from the shoulder dress.
I am only 5'3" tall so note that the dress hits about an inch below my knee which is great for my age. If you are taller and younger than me, you will like the dress hitting above the knee.
This will be most certainly my 'go to' for any and every occasion."

Shame about the frill!,

"A lovely dress fits like a glove but has an odd frilly addition to the neck. I was hoping to wear my amber necklace to go with the lovely neckline but the frill was completely unexpected from the photo and could not be removed.
Had to return the dress.
Why this wierd frill??

Basic Black Dress,

"This knit is of substantial fabric. Perfect for fall and winter wear. It does not cling. Classic and comfortable. My only wish is that it were a bit longer in length. It is right at the knee on me (I'm 5'6") and I would prefer another 2 inches of length."

black dress,

"I needed a modest black dress with long sleeves for a ceremonial occasion and this was one of two I found on the Internet. It is well made and the fabric is nicer than the too-stretchy 'travel' type dresses that were the only alternative. I wish, though, that it were a little longer--it is just knee-length on me."
