comfortable, runs a bit bigger

As others have mentioned, this dress runs a little bigger and the waist a little higher than some of my other Svaha dresses. It's not a big problem (I still wear it a lot!). I'm 5'10" and often wear tall shirts, so this may be a plus for more petite people. It is roomier, which makes it comfortable, but not as flattering. Come fall I'll try it with a belt.

Love! this dress. I read the reviews that said that this dress runs larger than other Svaha dresses and took that into consideration when ordering. I ordered a size smaller and it fits perfectly.

Good quality, not ideal for tall women

I'm 5'10" and was thrilled to find a 42" dress, so I was disappointed to discover that mine is closer to 41" (and in e-mailing customer service was told that there could be a centimeter or two difference). Shorter women might not think that's important, but it's the difference between being at and above knee. So if the length is important, realize that you might need to be okay with it's being shorter than listed. Also, I don't have a long torso, but the pockets hit at a strange level, more like mid-stomach, which doesn't look awesome. That doesn't seem like a tall woman problem, since I don't take talls in shirts, so again, it's unfortunate that an aspect of the dress that I was really looking forward to, pockets, aren't a plus. That said, I'm going to keep the dress and give it a try, as I love the print, and the cotton seems nice and durable.

I really love the bright colors of this dress! It fits great, just like my other Svaha dresses, and I love wearing it to work to help encourage my 1st graders to read :)
