Ponte Scoopneck Dress
Black cherry ponte scoopneck dress
I ordered this dress just before the Xmas Holidays and got to wear it for New Years Day. It is perfect! Fits true to size, has a nice winter weight--but not too heavy, Looks much more costly. Plus, since someone spilled wine on it at the dinner, I had to wash it. Used cold water and it came out of a low-setting dryer looking fresh and new. No ironing. This ponte dress is a great find. Already a classic staple in my wardrobe.

My first order from Appleseeds, and I couldn't be more pleased. Excellent quality materials and workmanship, fits perfectly, classically styled and comfortable.

This dress fit well, did not cling to my mature body. The only drawback I find is that there is no zipper in the back. I'm sure I will enjoy wearing it.

This is a very basic black dress. It is fairly straight top to bottom and hits below my knees in length. (I'm 5'8".) There is really nothing spectacular about the dress but it is one of those dresses that will lend itself to many occasions and multiple accessories. It will take me to many events and will work a majority of the year in my climate. It will work with boots, flats, heels, and tights. I am not terribly excited about the dress but do see the possibilities. As a retired person, I spend most of my time in casual clothes such as khakis, jeans, and "Chuck Taylors". I do need dress clothes on occasion, however, and this dress with its forgiving waistline will definitely fill an empty spot in my closet.

I am returning this dress as it is too big. Too bad as it is quite nice

I own three!
I am 5' 9'' and have so much trouble finding dresses and skirts that cover my knees. These are the perfect length, have a slightly shaped fit that is very flattering, and they wash well. I get compliments every time I wear them. They're much more flattering than the ponte dresses that other companies sell, which are often shapeless sacks, or too short.
I have to say I would prefer full-length sleeves, but at least these sleeves show off bracelets well!
You can wear the dress with regular shoes, or any type of boots for a different look. Wear a great necklace or else a scarf. I wish Appleseed's would offer this in a medium or light gray.

Ordered Wrong Size
I have been going back and forth with this dress for almost a month. The quality is excellent, and the price on this teal sale item was too good to pass up....except it was too small. I am now on my last try as I await Petite Large in both the black and the chocolate. I may have to have the item altered because the Misses L was too baggy/long, but Medium was too snug. Beautiful dress!
