Glad It Was Cheap

Reviewed by InTheWoods from New Hampshire on Friday, May 16, 2014
When I ordered this I chose it specifically because it was cheap and I thought it would be a good house dress to beat around in at home during the summer months. So I wasn't feeling very picky and assumed I'd have no complaints, but this thing is a mess. I got the blue & white checkered one. Firstly, it's HUGE, it's like wearing a tent. I ordered a medium (I typically take a size 8 dress) but this looks more like a size 14-16 if you ask me. Also, the material is very stiff. I washed it and line dried it and it's a mess, very stiff, very wrinkled and the hem crinkled and turned up all the way around. I refuse to iron a house dress - the wrinkles wouldn't matter so much if the fabric weren't so stiff. I saw some reviews saying it's great out of the dryer - maybe so, but I line dry all my clothes in the summer (when I would wear this dress) to save money and energy. I seriously couldn't imagine having any complaints with something to wear at home when no one sees me, but it's just so stiff and huge. I may put it in the dryer one time to see if I can at least shrink it a little, but I'm not thrilled with this at all and will probably end up re-purposing the material for a craft project.
