SPITALFIELDS CORD DRESS
Bought this dress and wore it, with a white blouse underneath for the first time last week. Like the other reviewers, find it very difficult to get on, only possible with an extremely lightweight layer underneath. Having said that found it very comfortable and smart. My husband loves it, says it shows off my new slimmed down figure!!

I bought the dress in purple. The colour is lovely and dots are subtle so not overpowering. The dress is unusual and I have received several compliments.
I've been wearing white Suzie Lou slash neck top under dress. The necklines are a perfect match for each other. I have also been wearing the dress with black opaque tights and boots and am cosy for winter.
I am normally a size 12 and bought the 12 and it fits perfectly (even with the top underneath). It sits a few inches above my knee - I wouldn't want it any shorter.
This is my favourite dress at the moment but the only downside for me is it is a struggle to get it on even with the side zip (so rated 4 for fit). By the time I have it on I feel it's a bit crushed. If you are concerned about messing your hair, I'd suggest putting dress on first then sorting your hair.

I would agree with others that it is almost impossible to get on! Especially with a top underneath which you need in the winter. Didn't your models struggle with the samples? Anyway, once on it is lovely and true to size. But in future couldn't you just make the side seam zip go all the way up to the arm hole? I got the green, but the purple is also lovely as I ordered both, could hardly decide, but couldn't afford to keep two.
