Great dress, generous sizing
I love my Monica dress. The panel at the neckline makes the cowl less revealing without being prudish. It's a good length, roughly to the knee on me (I'm 5'5")
The pockets are a nice detail, because they help add shape at the hips.
I have this in the size 12, which fits perfectly even though I'm normally a full 14.
The leaf/feather pattern is pretty without being over the top. I really like the colour, though I wished they'd done this pattern in the dark inky blue colour they made a similar dress in.
Very nice for autumn and spring, or with extra layers for colder weather. Looks fab with knee high boots!

Bought this in the sale. Although at first glance it looks and feels a bit flimsy, it looks great on. It's empire line and so flatters the narrowest part of the body. I am nearly 5' 6" and it sits just on the knee. Loved the bright, cheerful and coincidentally rather festive colour. The cowl neck flatters without exposure due to modesty panel. My only criticism is that the tie is only attached to the dress at the front and this doesn't follow all the way round, which is how it appears in the phot, so I suspect the tie will sag a bit at the back. I can add a stitch or two to resolve this and don't mind as the rest is fab.

Colour just didn't suit me, though I really wanted to keep it
