Rated 4 out of 5 by Lady Grace Versatile Dress
I love the style and weight of this dress. It is not too heavy but the weight is just right so it's not clingy and hangs well. Love the 3/4 sleeves too. It can be dressed up,or down based on the style. I only wish it was a little more fitted in the waist region, giving it a little more shape. Otherwise, I really like it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by xyz1234 A Long Shirt
I sized up one in this and while it fit, it was too snug for my taste. The upper arms are tight. The garment is well made, but looks like a long shirt. It lacks shape and style. Back it goes.

I love the concept of this dress, but not the quality of the construction. The sizes (yes, I looked at the sizes specific to this garment) are inconsistent -- something I'm finding is a norm with IM clothing, and quite disappointing.
I purchased this in the navy and the fit is fine. I am 5'4", and it just skims almost to the bottom of my knee. The arms are a bit snug, and I'm praying it doesn't shrink, or these may not be wearable on me. I purchased a 1x (I normally wear a women's 18-20 in other manufacturers' online ready-to-wear goods, but have to size up with IM because although the numbers show I should wear a large, I require a 1x in his actual cut).
I also purchased the green. It is 1/2 inch narrower across the back shoulder; the sleeve length is the same as the navy and just as snug. The reason I'm giving this dress a 3 instead of 4 star is because this dress is 1.5 inches SHORTER than the navy dress! I know they lay stacks of fabric together and make a cut with the machines (I used to work in retail), so there is some 'shifting' of the fabric when the cuts are made. But 1.5 inches shorter? This may be fine for those of you under 40, but on grandmom at age 63, I feel a tad uncomfortable wearing a dress that comes above mid-knee. But I'm not returning it because of the return fees -- and even if I called customer service, they cannot guarantee another dress is available, in the same length as the navy.
Overall, great concept. Something I thought would be good to wear on weekends and after water aerobics class this fall in Maryland, as the weather is so unpredictable here. I had also thought I could use it for work (the navy - yes; the green - no, because of the length and my job). I plan on pairing them with navy or green opaque tights and flat shoes this fall when wearing them elsewhere.
I just received them, so do not know how they will wash. I am hoping they do not shrink! I'm hoping that since these are a cotton/poly blend that they will not shrink. If so, this may be my last IM purchase, which would be devastating because I love his conceptual designs, the quality fabrics he uses and the 'wear ability' of his designs for all ages.

Just received this dress today. After reading reviews, I ordered up 1 size. Usually an extra large. I am 5' tall and the dress hits me at mid knee. The bodice & sleeves are a little snug even after ordering up a size, but doable. Ordered the grey and considering ordering another color. Can be dressed up or down.

I bought 2 of these dresses as lunchtime specials to wear as coverups for my water aerobics class going into cooler weather. I went up a size after reading the reviews, and to allow for shrinkage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by furbaby Wow - Really Nice!
I was not expecting this dress to be as nice as it looked on the presentation. I was fortunate to get the blue color. This is a nice weight which is heavier than expected. It will be great for the fall and winter months. I love the 3/4 length sleeves - my favorite. I am also a big fan of not having to fuss with buttons or a zipper - over the head it goes. The length is also just right on my 5 foot 7 inch body - it hits me just above the knees. What a super deal when it was on clearance day. I am a real fan of Isaac's clothing.
Rated 3 out of 5 by TallTexan Cute Dress Too Short
If you have good legs, this is your dress. Its the loopy kind of French Terry and pretty spongy, Nice design and construction....kind of a athletic looking very short dress. I'm too tall for this.
Rated 4 out of 5 by NatW23 Can't beat the price
I purchased the small which is my usual Isaac size, and I love it. It fits comfortably in the arms and I plenty of room to move. It is warm and can work well into the fall and winter with tights and leggings underneath. I wanted to go back for the blue color (I originally purchased the grey), but it is now sold out in my size. If you are thinking about purchasing, I say go for it in your normal Isaac size.
