What color is cotton?
Cotton grows in varieties of pinks, reds, yellows, browns and greens. Travel to New Mexico, and you'll see FoxFibre® fields filled with these beautiful hues. Once they are woven or knit into a fabric, these natural colors deepen with washing and age.
I really love this dress, but I got a size too big. This material is wonderful, but very stretchy and forgiving. I was worried to get something too small, so opted for an XL/XXL, but I think a M/L would have fit me better and had already washed it before coming to this realization. I'm 5'10" so it's also a bit more of a tunic on me. I'm hoping to make some adjustments to the fit myself so that I can live in this dress (any maybe order another one) because it's generally my ideal dress. I've only gotten linen from CC before and had shoulder fit issues, so that's why I opted for something bigger this time - lesson learned!
I've had this dress for a couple weeks and have worn it quite a few times, so time to write a review!
Sizing: I'm about 5 ft 3 inches tall, with a 39 inch bust, and got the M/L. This fits nicely with a little bit of ease, which is how I like my clothes to fit.
Fabric: A nice, lighter weight jersey that will work well on its in warmer months and layer comfortably in cooler months. Also, I'm a sucker for stripes.
Pocket: 100% yes. The dress has very generous pockets, which are always appreciated. With the jersey fabric, lighter items in the pockets are better, otherwise it can sag down toward heavier pocket items. However, I could fit phone + keys + chapstick in 1 pocket easily if I really wanted to.
Construction/finishing: All the seams are super solid, the interior of the dress is very clean looking (no random bits of thread/fabric anywhere).
A note: the neckline is a little wider than it appears in photos and dips down a decent amount in the back - not super easy to tell in the model photos. The front neckline tends to sit up higher (if you are sensitive to fabric near your neck this might not be the dress for you - it doesn't pull or anything but does sit higher up).
Overall, a well made, comfortable, versatile, and cute dress that will continue to get lots of wear.
