I just got SO lucky!

I read the reviews by others and thought this dress was so cute and had such potential that it would be worth ordering it, if only to have to send it back, to take a chance it would fit me well even though the shape seemed awkward for others who had bought it.

I am SO glad I ordered it anyway. People talked about the lining seeming to small for the dress. THIS HAS NOT BEEN MY EXPERIENCE WITH IT AT ALL!
The lining is what fits the person. The flannel would and could be totally stretched out of shape -- and get baggy like a nightgown does -- if it didn't have a lining to protect it from stretching too much of the wearer strikes in extended or unusual pose.

I did order UP a whole size based on the comments of others that the lining was too small.

The blue/black plaid with the little red running through it will look so adorable with a red cami or T underneath, and either black leggings and little red boots, or even red leggings, if I really want to be daring.

The dress is figure flattering and just what I've been dreaming about and imagining in my own head for several years. I love flannel so much that I've been hoping some designer would start using it for other things that plaid lumberjack shirts and nightgowns. I would love to see flannel in feminine prints as well, not just plaids, but as long as this is a dark plaid, it can be dressed up to look so chic! Even with a bizarre little touch of violet or chartreuse.

My figure looks like an hourglass in this, even though my tummy is a little bigger than I'd like right now. It doesn't show in this. I'll probably use my own belt rather than the fabric sash that came with it, just to anchor it more securely at the waist and anchor the dress there a big. Might add a coral puffy vest to it, or a colorful paisley ascot, too.

Cannot wait to wear this out!
