Ponte Scoopneck Dress
Love the fit.
I love this dress. The fabric is rich and substantial. Not flimsy like some knit. I have 3 dresses from Apple seeds made of this fabric in different colors. The fit is wonderful. . I love them all.

This may be my favorite dress EVER, and I wear a lot of dresses. I have worn it many times, and it washes beautifully, without needing any ironing. It's slimming, it feels good, and I have gotten many compliments. It's really is beautiful, and I just got on here to see if it might available in my size in the teal. Alas, it is not.

Loved the older one....
I bought two of this dress a year or more ago and LOVE them -- well, if they had long sleeves instead of 3/4, or at least a longer 3/4, I'd love them even more -- but ordered one a few months ago and was disappointed by a change in the style -- there was a loose facing around the neck instead of the nicely-hemmed one, and the scoopneck was bigger. I am not thrilled about showing any more of my 54-year-old sun-damaged skin than necessary, so that was a deal-breaker for me; it went right back. I alter almost all my clothes, but the older version of this dress only needed hemming. The darts in the back give it just enough shaping and the fabric hangs beautifully and doesn't cling, so it skims right over dents and rolls (bra bulges and whatnot). I don't even need to iron it, and that's really saying something, because I iron everything. Well, sometimes I do -- the fabric has pilled ever-so-slightly and smoothes out a bit if it's ironed. I wear the two I have frequently and might order another one in a year or so if they're still offering them, hoping they will have made the neck a little smaller again. I have one of the turtleneck version and the fit and fabric are equally nice, but the neck seam is scratchy so I've ended up never wearing it again. I guess if you don't mind a bit of neck/chest exposure I would recommend this dress. I'm almost tempted to go ahead and buy another one and take in the shoulder seams to make the neck smaller, which I've often done with boatnecks.

The design is lovely and the quality is excellent.
My opinion is that if you know your measurements and order accordingly you will be thoroughly pleased.

Looks just as it is pictured
I have not yet worn the dress, but I believe it will be perfect for the intended purpose.

Styl e ok
Not sure yet about the dress. If it washes well, it is a winner. If not, well, that's another story. It fits, looks great. Will it shrink, get out of shape - that remains to be seen.

Good basic dress
Quality of fabric was better than I expected at this price. Can be dressed up or down, which is good for me as I rarely wear a dress.
