Crinkle Weekend Dress
A17151 - Crinkle Weekend Dress
I am happy to have found this dress for the summer. I have it in four colors, and am awaiting a back-order of the fifth, all in size Small. I am 5'3" and weigh about 115 lbs.. Even though my waist-length is short and the waist itself is thick, due to spinal shrinking, these dresses fit me well and still hang nicely from the shoulders. (Hopefully, this information will be helpful to anyone else who is difficult to fit, with their decision on trying this item.)
I like the handy pockets and the longer dress length. I like being able to slip it over my head, without buttoning or unbuttoning any of the buttons, to put it on or take it off.
When the dresses are laundered, the wide, center-front facings all fold over along the stitching lines just beyond the buttons and buttonholes. These facings must be ironed flat to look good after washing. I am considering trimming the width of the facings to avoid this. Other than that, the dresses require little, if any, touch-up ironing.
This is a good, comfortable, everyday dress that is easy-care as well.

Too loose fitting for me
The dress looked lovely on the computer, but terrible on me. Being petite, I probable look better in a more fitted dress.

Great, practical dress for all occasions !
I read a few of the reviews and was a little hesitant. I ordered it anyway in the Blue.
I love it. It is simple to wear to a dinner, a night out, or just to the mall. It irons beautifully.
I can dress it up with a scarf, necklace or simple wear it with sandals.
A little about me: I am a young 79. It is so hard for us older women to find attractive dresses. This fit my expectations.

Simple yet beautiful
I purchased 3 of these dresses, one in each color for my mother. She absolutely loves them and gets so many compliments on them. She especially likes the front pockets and button down collar style. The fabric is not too heavy, not too light and hangs just right. Perfect fit and simply beautiful!

Fits like a tent
If you don't mind billowy dresses that make you feel like you're living in a tent, this dress is for you. At my age I do have places that I don't want visible or pronounced. BUT, I wear a small and even that made me look and feel pregnant. (Shades of yesteryear's baggy, shapeless, maternity clothes.) It could have easily been made a little more stream-lined without taking away the appeal of comfort, no binding, and the security that you are modestly and classily attired.
