Rated 3 out of 5 by MzB Pretty Dress but...
I love this dress in both colors, but for plus sized ladies like me, there's just not enough give/stretch in the sleeves. Bummer!
Rated 4 out of 5 by kcrrn58 Runs small in upper body & around arms
I am 5'5" & normally wear a size 10 with room to spare. The dress in a 10 was too tight under my arms & the dress was hard to get on & off over my head. It was just a bit too tight in the bust too, thus the reason I am giving it 4 stars.. The dress is slenderizing & well made so I exchanged for a 12 which fit looser under my arms & much easier to get on and off.
Rated 2 out of 5 by CrispyKritta Not for me
This is one of those dresses that I fell in love with online (watched the QVC video, too), but once I got it and tried it on, I felt like I was back in 1974. I remember my grandmother wearing a dress like this. The fabric was a heavy polyester. Just not for me.

First the good part - very well made dress, pretty paisley print (I like the blue/green better than the brown/black), good length just at the bottom of the knee, nice styling and details such as the lining and 3/4 sleeves.
Now the not so good part - this is more of a woven type fabric with a VERY slight "give" to it. I would never call it a "stretch" fabric. I ordered my normal size 14, and although it fit just OK, it was not a comfortable dress. I am more pear shaped, but due to the fabric being so unforgiving, I found that even the top of the dress was uncomfortable moving around. I don't think going up a size will work. The 8% spandex blend is quite deceiving - feels more like 1-2% at most. Even in the presentation, neither Linda or Marybeth hold the fabric and go "look at that stretch!" as they so often do.
I had high hopes as I have been looking for a dress like this for awhile. I do love to sew and am familiar with the different fabrics available. There are true stretch crepe fabrics out there and I was hoping this was one of those. Unfortunately this is not one of those and due to the comfort factor, I have sent both colors back.
So sorry but will keep looking for dress I need.
Four stars for the overall design.
