Customer Reviews Of:
French Terry Dress - Slub Cotton, Elbow Sleeve (For Women)

2nds. Pull on this simple French terry cotton dress for weekend outings. A hidden-snap henley neckline makes it great for layering, and the supersoft slubby cotton is as comfy as your favorite T-shirt.

    This was great the first time I put it on, super comfortable. But, I quickly switched to feeling like I was wearing a shapeless bag, and it stretched oddly on the first wearing.

    Great fit, true to size, but it needs a belt if you have a tummy and maybe even if you don't: The dress is comfy and contemporary looking (not to my eye dowdy), but it has a square decorative patch that hits just about at my navel, and the dress looks a whole lot better if I wear it with a belt. It has a lovely, informal, hopsacking sort of look and the label says The Territory Ahead, so it figures. You could iron it but it looks in its element slightly rumpled.

    I have this dress in the sage color and now the black. It's all cotton and hangs very nicely. I'm 5'7" 140lbs. The medium fits perfectly, and it hits right at the knee. It washes well and didn't shrink in the dryer. Highly recommend.

    It's just a dress, something I may wear on the farm, certainly not to town.
    Rather than pay to return it, I may try to add some funky elements to liven it up. Resurrection of the dead???

    Had high hopes for this, but didn't work at all. Didn't seem to have much shape, and the fabric didn't have the body that I expected of french terry

    This looks frumpy in the photo. Because it got so many good reviews, I thought maybe the frumpiness was due to the round-shouldered model. I ordered the black. After it arrived, I tried it on several times on different days, trying to like it. Frumpy. I had tried it on in bare feet. Then I tried it on with black and plum paisley tights and some chunky (Naya) high-heeled oxfords. Wow! Taller shoes changed the proportions, so maybe if you're already tall, you wouldn't need tall shoes. Regardless, before you give up on it, you might want to experiment with different shoes.

    Liked the first one so much, I went and got a second. Sleeves are a good length. Super comfortable dress, and launders well. Would give it 5 stars, except not crazy about the big wooden button in front.

    This is a great dress. I bought the green on first and then ordered it in black. You can dress this up or down and I always get compliments when I wear it.

    Despite its "2nds" status, the dress is perfect! Easily dressed-up or kept casual, it's ideal,

    These are wonderful, comfortable dresses and I have ordered another one. However the first one I ordered shrunk during machine laundering so I am going to have to investigate hand washing when it is time to clean this replacement.

    Ay yi yi. The coloring of the fabric was blotchy; the fit of the dress made me look 10 pounds heavier.
    It would make a good nightgown or something to wear on a long long train trip when you'd need something
    comfortable to wear/sleep in.

    I am returning it.

    I got the small, and it fits perfectly (5'3, 120) . I like the sleeve length and the simple lines. Very versatile. I haven't washed it yet and hope it won't shrink.

    I bought this dress in two colors and love them both. There is no visible sign it is a second. I am 5'7", 125lb and the small fits great.

    You can throw on this dress and be dressed instantly! It falls nicely on the body - not too tight but not like a sack! A good medium weight fabric that works in summer or the cooler months. The first time I wore it, I got many compliments. Easy to dress up or down.

    This dress has a trendy look and is very comfortable. The knee length is perfect for me. I bought a medium, but could have worn a small. I usually wear size 8. I bought "merlot" and the color is redder than I expected, but still a nice color for fall. I look forward to wearing this dress with boots for my fall teaching schedule.

    Looked like a potato sack on me. Also was a mass of wrinkles as if had been washed and dried and left in the dryer. Maybe for someone else, not for me

    I have been looking everywhere for clothes that will accommodate nursing access. I came across this dress, and it looked so comfortable. Then adding reviews, found someone else that also purchased the dress for nursing reason, and they felt it worked great. And agree, it will be perfect for those cool days, at soccer games, for my oldest. And I won't have to expose my belly and back to the cold. I have a few cropped tees, which I got for the purpose to I will wear under nursing garment, for added coverage while nursing.
    As far as sizing:
    I decided to review mainly for the sake of sizing, I am between sizes. I normally wear a 6-8 range, so that put me between Small & medium.
    I am 5'4" and currently at about 135#, with a 34c bust.
    I ended up purchasing both S & M sizes. They would both work okay. But I think due to the loose style fit, I prefer the small, it is still a comfortable loose fit, but not too loose, so it's less frumpy.
    I will returning the medium, and hoped to get them exchanged for smalls, but the colors I did not order are now no longer available. Bummer!

    Yes it's a sack. And I am 5'8" 125# - for some reason I get compliments every time I wear it. Fabric is plenty sturdy and not see-through as are many slub cottons. Very roomy A-line...throw it on with sandals during the summer and I am sure I could dress it up with a wrap and tights and boots come fall. Appears quality made - and it's so cheap I bought another one in a different color...why not?

    This is a thinner fabric than I thought but a good product, fits well and is very comfortable. The green is a nice color too.

    The color of this dress is very pretty. It is comfortable and falls nicely, with a flattering neckline.
    I pair it with olive tights and a white sweater. The fabric is on the thick side, but it works.

    Really good color and nice feel, just not a particularly good style. Had I tried this garment on in a store I likely would not have purchased it.

    I got one for both my daughter & I. She is 26 yrs 5'7" & about 125 lbs. the med fit great. I got the large with my 145 lb 5'4" frame . Great for just around the house or dressed up with scarves and jewelry. Who knew such a little comfy dress would be so versatile. I will wash in cold as it is cotton. It hits just at the back of the knees. I think you could wear for a pajama too. It's that comfy. The button makes it dressy looking. The colors are not bright but I love the look of the earthy washed out colors.

    The quality of this dress was great as well as the style and color but it did not look fitted enough on. It seemed to loose shape.

    If this dress didn't get dirty, I would wear it every day! It is that comfortable. I have even fallen asleep in it. Haven't washed it yet, so hope it will hold up well in the washing machine. Comes to the knee so it is a decent length. Only downside is the big button, which is kind of ugly, but the dress is so comfortable, and buttons can be replaced.

    I bought the red. It is as described in the reviews -- comfortable and casual. It is a lightweight French terry, almost like a t-shirt weight, but does not cling. The neckline is not too low. I am 5' 2" and it hits the bend of my knee which is just fine.

    I loved this dress so much that I bought a 2nd. So far i have worn it out to lunch, to the spa, shopping and around the house. It is so soft and although can be worn for relaxing around the house to a swim cover-up, it is also nice enough to dress up with jewelry and wear out. One young friend said, "Wow I love your dress, its so stylish" He especially liked the big front button. It fits well and although it is loose I don't feel it makes me look "fat" as I have felt with other loose clothing. I think the wonderfully tailored, snug, but not tight, sleeves are part of the reason for this.
