Nice simple silhouette This shirt style dress is made from nice linen fabric and is easy to wear. I thought it was a bit on the long side and may take it up a bit. I agree with the other reviewers who found the sleeves a bit tight, it's ok for me but only just. I would like to see more colours added to the range. I thought the dress was a bit pricey.I wear this dress with a colourful scarf and have had positive comments from people about it. 10 May 2015
lovely elegant feel I love wearing this dress. It feels elegant over linen trousers and t-shirt. My only negative comment is the slight tightness of the sleeves but that does give in wearing, being linen. 27 April 2015
Lovely dress Lovely dress and beautiful material but not for me. I tried the grey colour which didn't suit me as I have grey hair and I looked washed out. I also felt I needed to be 3" inches taller and a stone lighter to look good in it and feel comfortable. I am 5ft 4". 15 April 2015
Disappointed I love the style of this dress but for me the cut was completely wrong. I am a size 8 to 10 and bought the 10 because of the comments about the bust. I am a B cup, but the dress was way too tight across the bust and too loose around the hips and yes - the arms are too tight. Was hoping this would be a staple in my spring wardrobe, but it's been returned. 13 April 2015
Love it but..... Love this dress, bought two one grey and one navy, very pleased but agree with other comments, although true to size the arms are extremely tight and I don't think my arms are that big, I can only just do the arm button up. 10 April 2015
Lovely classy dress but not for anyone with a bust. I liked this dress more than I expected to because I am not usually a fan of grey. This is a really classy shade and the dress fitted my size 10 perfectly apart from the bust. It pulled ever so slightly but I would have had to pin it to be comfortable and the dress is too expensive for me to have to fiddle with it so it is going back. The sleeves were slightly snug at the cuff but it wasnt a problem - it looked good with a low slung leather belt. The linen was reasonably good quality and if it had fitted me better I would have kept it. 30 March 2015
Great shape As a bigger size woman this dress in the darker colour is very flattering - all I need in some sunshine to wear it. Bit pricey though. 04 February 2015
lovely laid back dress This is a lovely, flattering, elegant, soft-feel dress with a ' washed out' look that dresses up smartly with bright bluish green or orange accessories. Very happy with it, though petite ladies take note - I have had to get it shortened by about 6 inches (I am 5ft 3) as even with heels it nearly swept the floor.Downsized to an 8 from experience with Poetry, and found it was a great fit, but 'bustier' ladies might need to size up. Very slightly tight around the cuff probably as a result, but not a problem. 27 January 2015
Very chic dress, stylish and I am sure will be worn a great deal Bought for summer as I often find things are out of stock in my size by the correct season. Only slight complaint on this dress, sleeves seem a bit tight. Great fit elsewhere and being tall I love the length. Think this will be a very versatile dress for me to wear with a linen jacket for travelling or with some nice sandals for informal evening. Good classic Poetry, more of this less drapery look please. 23 January 2015
Gorgeous dress I may shorten it a couple of inches, but I would prefer to have it longer than too short! Lovely dress, great fabric. Think I will wear it a lot. 20 January 2015
