Rated 3 out of 5 by proshop2 Nicely made, But Mature
I bought the platinum XL and I like the length and the knit. It is way too big for me. This dress is for women of a certain age.

I am always in search of a good basic solid colored dress. As a plus size woman (XL), most of the clothes made for us comes in loud, obnoxious prints. George Simonton has designed this dress in a classic silhouette that can go from boardroom to dinner to church...easily. The fit is great and the sleeve length of the dress is perfect. This is the second George Simonton dress I've bought for myself (I've purchased pieces for my mother who loves his clothes and looks great in them) and I will be buying more. I hope George stays at QVC. It would be a shame to lose him.
Rated 5 out of 5 by hintongirl VERY NICE DRESS
This is a really nice dress, good quality material, nice design. I read some reviews that thought it was matronly looking but I dont think so. you could wear a scarf, or a pretty necklace with it and be really dressy or just a simple chain necklace, you could probably even wear a belt if you chose to. I wish I could have kept it but I chose another one. I was trying to find a dress for a funeral that I know is coming and I didnt want anything that looked like a party dress, so this would have been suitable. I carry my weight in my stomach so it was not flattering for me even if I had gotten a bigger size it would not have fit in the bodice.
Rated 5 out of 5 by missgloria I Love This Dress!!!!!!!!
This dress may look matronly to some, but it can be dressed up for a great look. A Large Pin, a great necklace, earrings. I first bought it in the black. Loved it so much I went back and bought the other two colors. A great dress for year round where I live. Have received lots of complements when wearing this dress. Thanks George!!!

The dress fits well in the bust and hip areas. However, the top half of the dress was an ill fit. It made my shoulders appear broad like a line backer and the neckline was not flat exposing my breast line. I ordered a small to avoid the cleavage issue -didn't work too well.
Rated 1 out of 5 by marymer Hidden Zipper
I tried this dress on and the first thing I noticed was that one of the side seams bulged out and did not lay flat . Upon looking closer I found a zipper that ran down half the dress causing the problem with the seam. First off, there was no mention of a zipper on the dress and second if necessary it should have been placed down the center back.
It is a bit annoying when the customer must pay for return postage when it is not a question of fit or like but poor workmanship.

I read the reviews on this dress, and initially passed on ordering, but then finally gave in to a post-Christmas Retail Therapy impulse. This dress does run large, so I'm glad I read the reviews and ordered one size smaller than my usual size medium. The fabric is on the heavy side, which is great for not showing every little thing, plus the weight gives it a nice drape. But I sure won't be wearing it during a Phoenix summer! I do like the neckline and the sleeve length, but I wound up ironing the dress inside out after laundering so that I could fully flatten the multiple open seams to create a smoother line. By itself, the dress is on the boring side, so I started shopping my closet to see what I could do. I added a silk scarf in a coordinating color, pinned it with a silver broach and also added a belt. Much better!

Refreshing square neckline - solid ponte material which is excellent for 3 seasons - runs a little big - Platinum color is not a nice winter ivory - if the color was a nice ivory I would have reordered in the smaller size.

I am 49 years old and couldn't have said it any better than another customer who left the following review: "I'm 45 years old so by no means a spring chicken, but really? This dress, when on, looks like something my grandmother would wear. I wear a size small and it is very baggy and loose. I must say it is good quality material and I like the sqare neckline but unless you are planning on wearing those white, leather tie-up walking shoes and your knee highs rolled down around your ankles, pass this one by!"
Rated 4 out of 5 by happycustomer2 Glad I purchased this dress
I think this dress is well made. I like the feel of the ponte knit - it's substantial. But I do think this runs a little large. I was tempted to send it back for a smaller size but decided to go with the one I ordered. The length is just right. A belt solves the problem of a looser fit. If you wear a jacket over it, the jacket needs to fit close to the neck as the dress has a wide neckline. It's an overall good purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MagistraB Another Great Dress From George!
This dress fits perfectly and is so comfortable. The fit is true to size. I also love the slate blue color. The neckline is very flattering and the ponte knit is a nice substantial fabric. Thanks George for another winner from your collection!
