2nds, barely perceptible blemishes. The very definition of a sheath, this knit print dress smooths over your figure -- an exuberant print on a dusky background that gradually brightens into daylight at the hem.

This is a very pretty dress. The pattern is eye-catching and the cut is flattering. I got several compliments on this dress the first time I wore it - some from strangers. I agree with the others who said the sleeves are tight, but my arms are on the larger side and I didn't find it to be uncomfortable at all. It took a little twisting to get them straight when I put it on, but the fabric is stretchy enough that they weren't restrictive. One warning - unless you are very tiny in the hips, you will need a slip with this. The lighter color on the bottom is sheer-ish, so any curves where the dress clings will show through.

Yes,for the most part. The shoulders are a little bit wide, but if you have normal or wide shoulder width, you'll be OK. It's hemmed a little above the knee. I ordered the size I normally wear in trousers. It skims the abdomen area slightly, so I wore a belt on the hips yesterday when I wore it for the first time. If you are fit, you won't need to worry about it. It has a bit of turquoise color (I didn't expect that) that really pops when I put on a casual denim-style turquoise jacket I have. I would wear that combo unbelted.||I received many compliments at work and on the street. Can't wait to wear it again!||Don't hesitate to ask any other questions. I've just posted a review recommending it but also advising that the sleeves are very small and it's like fighting to get a wet suit on your arms, but after it's on, you forget about it. I didn't feel as if it were compressing my arms, it's just hard to get on and to get off, you need to just pull it over your head, inside out.
