FANCY FREE DRESS
- size down -
A very pretty fabric and gorgeous colour.
A bit disappointed in the fit though - just too much fabric everywhere. Would definitely go down if in between sizes.

If only it were longer . . . .
I was so excited to see this online, nice to see a different colour as WS do so many of their dresses in blue, & I love purply shades. When it arrived it was so pretty but, I agree with the reviewer "Coriander", it is soooo short!. The colour & print are gorgeous & I love the lining, also that there's no waist seam, as I have a long back & they are always in the wrong place for me. But I'm 5'7" & this hung well above my knees. I only wear dresses this short if I can wear black tights,& you don't want this with a cotton summer dress. So sad as the sun was shining yesterday when my parcel arrived & I really wanted to wear it. If you about 5'2" ,it's lovely. Please WS, can we have some longer dresses, more midis that aren't stripey would be a good start!

I was so excited to receive this dress and then gutted when I tried it on. The dress fits perfectly other than the neckline which gaps terribly at the back. I've had this problem with a number of WS tops this season, but never before. Unfortunately, this is just too ill-fitting for me so I've returned it. However, colour, print, fabric and length are perfect. Just a little above my knee and I'm 5'4"

I LOVE this dress, such a gorgeous shape, pattern and fit. It's perfect for work and play. But the colour seriously let's it down if you are 'summer' colouring. It made me look grey. Please please please do it in a colour I can wear White Stuff.

Sadly I did not love this dress as much as I hoped. On the plus side it is a gorgeous sludgy purple with contrasting pink scattered flowers and a nice light weight for summer but it does not hang that well and needs the tie belt to give it shape. The neck line is also too high for my taste. I wish White Stuff would start doing two different lengths on skirts and dresses. I would buy so much more if I could get a longer length. I am 5'9" so not a giant but I am getting frustrated with this. We've got size 18's and 6's now so how about catering for taller women with less than perfect knees!

Come on sunshine!!
When I first saw this on line I thought 'meh', then White Stuff added a photo of this dress on a model and I thought 'Ooh! That looks better than I thought' - then I found it in Reading and I thought 'Yes - beautiful, that's coming with me'. Lovely dress, the only thing that would enhance it is a sun tan and some warm weather to make use of it. It's also lined and I think that makes this dress excellent value for money. It's cheaper than a lot of the lined dresses I have seen in WS over the years. I'm a pear and although this is a little close around my behind it's insignificant considering the mamy positives about this item. Really like this - get one before they sell out!
