Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer STUNNING RETRO BEAUTY IN BLACK!!!
This dress in black looks like a mid-three figure couture piece. The attention to detail is astonishing for the QVC price point. The under slip is attached to the dress in places, but free at the shoulder with a snap tab to hold the ADJUSTABLE STRAPS in place. The slip is 'A' line with a pieced 7" ruffle at the bottom to make sure the dress flows to a fullness at its hemline. Both the dress and the slip feel like cotton voile, which makes the black color wearable 9 months or more out of the year. The dress did arrive full of wrinkles from the packing BUT THE IT IRONS SMOOTH TO PERFECTION! Because of the soft cotton fabrication the dress can be worn very dressy or casual. The sash is wide and very long with many tying options and will help bring the waist down a bit if that is required. I am very tall and normally wear a size 6 which in this dress fits me perfectly. I feel like a retro beauty when I put it on.
Rated 5 out of 5 by legs10 Beautiful dress
I ordered size 2 and the dress is beautiful , on it is like a princess, very flowey, I don't understand bad reviews, it does arrive winkled but you can steam that out and love how it accentuates the waist. I wear a 2 but am a curvy 2 , sometimes in straight skirts need 4, But this dress flatters your figure. I got coral, wish I had been able to get the black too in the size 2 Would love to have it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by orphenya Great "party dress"
I got it in both colors, returned the coral. The black fits and looks great. I am really surprised at the low ratings. The dress fits me perfectly. It is fun, it is like a " Sound of music dress." I went to a party and got many compliments. It does wrinkle, but a steamer takes out the wrinkle. I think the dress is very pretty.
Rated 4 out of 5 by kb303 So soft and feminine
Like someone else said, I do not understand all the negative reviews on this dress. This dress is gorgeous. It is very soft, feminine and comfortable. I wore it to a wedding this summer. The wedding was not local and I had to drive 2 hours in the dress, attend the service and the reception. It was a long day and this dress held up beautifully. I received so many compliments and nobody else had anything else like it. It does arrive very wrinkled, but I had it professionally steamed and it looked gorgeous. My only major complaint was the zipper was difficult to get up because it kept catching in the material.
Since the dress does wrinkle, it would not be a packable item for traveling without a hanging garment bag. This is the only reason I was unable to take it with me on a recent trip to California -- believe me I was very sad to leave it home in NJ.
Rated 4 out of 5 by underwriter Cute Dress but Wrinkled Material
I love the style and look of this dress. It is a cute party dress..the flared skirt reminds me of dresses I used to wear as a little girl in the early 60's worn with a "can can" slip underneath. It looks good on my body type...5'7" 145lbs tall & thin flat stomach.
I would give the dress 5 stars if it were not so wrinkled, you definitely need a steamer which I happen to have a Joy Mangano my little steamer. The dress material is cotton which is perfect for hot summer days.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shoooz Great Concept, Poor Execution
I loved this dress when I saw it presented. Very clever to have an adjustable "tank" underneath; loved the idea of the wide straps; really thought this would be perfect. In reality, the skirt was WAY too poofy -- I looked huge! As another reviewer said, if you are busty, this dress won't work for you. Such a great idea and, if given better fabric and a little more care to detail, I think it could work. I was sad to send it back, but it was unwearable.

This dress is just my style! It's perfect to wear to a summer wedding. It's light weight and has a nice flattering a-line shape. I am happy that I purchased it in black, my favorite color!
Rated 3 out of 5 by QVC Prinzess Pretty dress but...
Had high hopes for this dress. It was a very cheap, thin (material) but yet very bulky dress (lots of the material scrunched together). I usually wear a 20 and had to get a 24 and it was awkward looking. Made me look HUGE. I believe it may look fabulous on someone with a much smaller frame (such as Lisa) but for a plus size, I am not sure this would work.
For the price, I expected nicer material. So, I returned it.
