The Clara dress is back in a fun check pattern! The sleeves are the perfect length and the elastic is just loose enough where it moves with your arm and doesn't get stuck, where you would have to pull on it or adjust it. The fabric is lightweight, a little more than I was expecting, but that also means I could wear this during spring or fall, and layer during the winter as needed. AND POCKETS!!!!!!!!!! The waist is slightly oversized, which I love, as it give more room to breath, lol. Plus its good for transitional periods of your body, like this works perfectly with my weight fluctuations. The sizing is different than the rest of the other garments and dresses, so be sure to pay attention to the size chart. The waist does have stretch, so you could keep your normal size, or size up or down, depending on how fitted you want the bust. I actually ended up sizing down and still have plenty of room for layers and movability. My bust is 38 inches, waist is 32 inches and hips 40inches, and I got the small size.

Love this dress! I sized down to a medium for a slightly more fitted look - bust 42", waist 38". Love the blousey sleeves.

The plaid dress really caught my eye. The fabric is gorgeous and in colors that I would think could suit anyone and any occasion. Unfortunately, I did not feel at all confident wearing this on my tall, slender frame. Even the XS felt overwhelming. I gave it a try, but could not justify keeping it if I wasn't going to wear it. If an oversized fit is what you are going for, or if you have curves, then don't pass this up! Also wanted to mention, I have the Garden Tee in Sky and absolutely love it; so versatile, great color and fit. I have my (conscious) eye on a few other makes me happy to support sustainable, ethical AND domestically made clothing brands!

This dress has been such a joy to wear, especially over the holidays! It’s perfect for holiday parties, the office, or a lazy day at home. It’s also a great canvas for styling—I’ve worn it with a black turtle neck layered underneath and with a vest. Would definitely recommend!

I have this dress in the holiday plaid and it is GORGEOUS. It fits the bill for holidays and other times as well, it's not too Xmasy of a pattern. I ordered a small and my measurements are 36-30-43. With Conscious Clothing pieces, I find that I need mediums in things with snap fronts (I get a gap with a small) but for this one a small was the perfect oversized but not sloppy look for me. The fabric is beautiful and the pockets are great. I look forward to having this lovely piece in my wardrobe for years.
