This is a gorgeous dress for the summer. The colour looks particularly lovely with a tan too! It's very flattering if, like me, you have an hourglass figure. I thought I'd be put off with the print as I really dislike cats but once on it didn't bother me at all. Would highly recommend.

Looked forward to seeing this dress 'in the flesh', as it is the same shape as the summer blossom dress in periwinkle, which I really love. However I thought the pattern was a bit tacky and it did not appeal to me at all, which is a pity as the other one was so classy. Also the summer blossom dress is lined in a lovely soft fabric, while this one isn't :(

This dress is made from a light woven viscose with an overall viscose lining. The main colour is a nice strong berry colour, which I didn't find too strong or too bright myself. I am not too keen on the white cat print though. The cats were just a bit too big for my taste. The dress goes to the top of the knee on someone 1.73m tall. It has a side zip and no pockets. There is elastic at the back and at the front. This sits about 2cm under the chest on me and because of this sticks out a bit ( because of my round tummy). There was only one size in the shop so I couldn't size down to see if at one size down the elastic would have sat right under my chest which would have solved the problem. There is ruffling under the elastic which gives a nice floaty bottom, which is not voluminous but hangs quite nicely. The neckline is medium low. The top part is too loose in my usual size, even though I have a DD chest and broad shoulders. I really would have to see if this would be better in a smaller size. All in all this is a nice, light and floaty summer dress which comes up a bit too big at the top so I would recommend sizing down.
