Novel Dress in Chalkboard Stripe

Novel Dress in Chalkboard Stripe is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! It's definitely shorter in real life than it looks on the website. I'm 5'2" and the XS was prob 2 inches shorter on me than on the model. The fit is amazing. I've worn it with wedges or Converse and the style is super versatile. My only complaint is the fabrication. The viscose makes it dry clean only and it does wrinkle very easily- I traveled with it and had to iron it in the hotel room because the folded wrinkles were so awful. BUT, super lightweight and breezy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply simple but elegant Great dress! I can wear dressy or not! As well as adding a nice long or short necklace. Overall, it's a great dress!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Spring Dress The reviewer just prior to me is right. I'm 5'4" and the length of this dress is perfect on me. I disagree though about the fabric. I love it. Especially love the pattern of the stripes - very thin pinstripes. This dress runs slightly oversized - I bought a Medium because I usually wear a Size 10 on top (36C, large shoulders), but probably could've worn a small. Love this dress!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from too short I'm 5'8" and this dress was too short for me. Also did not appreciate the synthetic fabric. Felt like it would wrinkle easy + not breathe in hot weather. please start making dresses longer! I'm not THAT tall, I'm sure other taller-than-average girls have the same issues & shorter individuals can always have something hemmed, but I cannot make more dress!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this dress I was so excited when I ordered this dress because I have it in the blue and green version and absolutely love it's fit and style. Unfortunately this one didn't have the flowy fit as the solid colored ones did. I even ordered it twice one in my usual XS and One in S. The small was still to tight in the hip area making it way to short for a dress.
