Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharp really Regret not buying more than one
What a pleasant surprise. Great fit. Great look. Why oh why didn't I buy all three colors. Got mine on sale and wish I could buy more at the same price. Thank you H by Hslston. Fabulous dress.
Rated 2 out of 5 by qualitymatters What were they thinking adding wool!
I'd hoped that 15% wool might be too little to be noticeable, so I could enjoy a great deal. But, they didn't use a quality wool, so it was too scratchy (mostly across my upper back) to be comfortable. And the cowl neck? Again, what were they thinking? Pairing that design with this mix of fabrics? Besides being too wide...from the neckline to its outside edge, a cowl needs a fabric like rayon that drapes and falls easily into natural folds, hardly the natural tendency of a cotton-modal-wool mix. That such a design-fabric mismatch should come from Halston is embarrassing. What's with these designers, anyway...they keep jacking up their prices while decreasing the quality of their product with poor designs and that cheapest of materials...poly-suffocate-me-ester. For those interested in the fit, the medium was an excellent fit on my small-boned, 5'4" frame laden around the middle with whipped creme, lemon cream pie and white choc. My 39" chest (36B) falls between S and M, so I went for the M to avoid a skin-tight look. Desired results were achieved. Add some spanx-type assistance and the black would look nice below the cowl and, surprise, surprise, the sleeves were bracelet length with ½" to 1" to spare and can be easily pushed up. As a V-neck with rayon instead of wool, it would make a great, versatile dress, but it wasn't, so it bites the dust and gets returned. Having never owned a sweater dress, I took a risk for fun...ce le vie.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TosaGirl Nice but not quite
Ordered large, berry color. I'm 5'10" with broad shoulders, I guess. This didn't fit quite as nice as on TV. I am not able to wear the cowl over my shoulders - too tight. The cowl has seams on both sides, that require specific placement of the cowl in order to hide them. Otherwise, it looks poorly made. The cowl is not loose enough around the neck. It doesn't hang down - it's straight across the chest, then kind of ripples on the sides. Hard to describe. However, I like the color and the light-weight of the fabric, because I like to wear something over it - like Halston's long sweater that was a TSV. And, as a Lunchtime Special, I couldn't beat the price! I have not washed it, yet. I wish QVC would allow us to modify reviews at a later date.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sweets77 Wanted To Love This But...
I only tried this on and took it off within 5 minutes. It was itchy on my arms. And the black was see thru even in my bedroom. I'm not about to wear a slip, so back it goes. It's a shame because it was cute on. And sizing was perfect with the medium.

I really like this item. I should of ordered a black one also, maybe I will next time. I like the color, the way it fits and looks very glamorous. I like the designer, the product are great quality and stylish.
Rated 5 out of 5 by violann I LOVE this dress
I bought this dress because I LOVE the color!
Among my concerns as I purchased was the fit. I don't care for short skirts or fitted knits.
Although this dress was described as being larger than expected, I decided to size up.
At 5'4"/170 about 36/29/41 I can typically wear QVC M-L and 14.
Just on a guess, I purchased this dress in 2X.
Here's how it fits- shoulder seams are perfect. Neckline covers my undie straps and drapes gracefully.
Fit is loosish, and I may belt it. Length covers my knees, as I want it. Multi length hem is not a problem.
I like the fabric a lot. It has nice body and is not too heavy, but also not thin. The touch of wool adds a nice texture and is not "picky".
It's a very nice, simple style to dress up or dress down.
Wish I'd bought a second color.

If you like pillage of your sweater, you'll love it! I was giving H another try after a sweater I bought earlier isn't fit to wear, due to pills. H really needs to find a different material because this just doesn't make it!
