Linen Dropwaist Dress is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The summer find, that almost got away. I purchased this at the end of summer sale. In 1week I washed and wore it 5 times. I received compliments every single time. It's already traveled (well), across country to a warmer climate for one last hooray this year. I can't wait for spring 2020, so I can wear again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful summer dress I read the reviews and bought an 8 regular. I am 5'7", 128 lbs and it's perfect. Just the right length and great breathable soft linen fabric. The blue looks great with my light tan. Good value and will be a favorite garment for me, a 68 year old retiree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive I worried because I usually wear petite. But I love linen so I bought a regular size 6 and it fit me very well, although the neck is a bit loose. My husband liked it and I received so many compliments that I bought a second one in another color. If there had been a third color, I would have bought that too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer dress! I bought this dress last month and since then I've worn it several times. It's a great summer dress--not clingy, not see-through and easy to throw on and go. It is well-made and the small fits me perfectly (I'm 5'4", 125lbs give or take)> I got the blue and it' is very attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful material, nice fit I bought this in March to take on a trip to a very warm climate. It worked perfectly for me. The linen is a nice weight, maybe some would feel it is too heavy for hot days. But not me! It was perfect. Travels well, drapes well, and fits perfectly (I am 5' 9", 125 lb) in a 6. I plan to wear it to baby showers this summer also. I bought the blue and white version which is really nice. Not drab at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband told me to purchase another one. I just bought this dress and love it. Very comfortable and packed great. My husband who never tells me to spend money told me to purchase a 2nd one in a different color because it looks good on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relax and look good! I bought this for summer traveling, and love it. Neutral color that I can wear any color of shoe, dress it up or down depending on jewelry, heels, or flats. Packs easily. Sort of a "one and done" solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice casual summer dress I am looking forward to wearing this dress when summer arrives. I wanted a casual warm weather dress for everyday wear with a bit of style which is provided by the drop waist and the directional change of the stripes. I was worried that is might be too boxy, but it has a nice A-line shape without being too wide in the hips. I am 5'4", 110 lbs and purchased a size 4 and still have room should it shrink a bit, as noted by other reviewers, when it is washed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic I bought this in black and am very happy with the style and quality of it. It is a classic to have on hand when you aren’t sure what to wear. I will have this as a favorite for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy summer dress I love the drop waist shift style and linen fabric for summer. The mini stripe pattern alternates direction between the top and skirt for a little extra design. I am 5'-7", 128 lb. and ordered the blue in a 6, but the 4 might also have worked due to the straight shape. I would have liked a little more length as it is a little shorter on me than in the photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! Casual but yet dressy enough for certain occasions. Great fit and style, love the linen fabric!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering! I was looking for a simple, stylish linen dress for a trip to FL and loved how this looked in the photo. I ordered a size 6 in the blue (I'm 5'5", 130 lbs, 34D). When I first tried it on I wondered if I should've purchased a 4. However, after washing and tumble drying on low, it is the perfect fit. If you're on the fence, I would stick with the slightly larger size and wash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fabric; boxy cut A comfortable casual dress with great linen and creative styling. I wish the cut were a bit slimmer, and keep looking for the pockets (they aren't there)!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I love this dress. Very cool on hot days and extremely comfortable. I felt it ran big. Wish I had taken the time to exchange it for a smaller size (loved it so much I wanted to wear it right away!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice dress and versatile I bought the striped dress and was very pleased. It’s great for going out to lunch or work. Very comfortable and it washes on delicate and only needs a touch up on the iron. I just ordered the amethyst too. I got size 8. I’m 5’6” and 135 and it fits perfectly. I feel I will wear all summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No pockets? I love this dress, but it's not quite perfect --- Why no pockets?!
Date published: 2020-04-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! I am 63 and although thin everywhere else, God knows why by I have gained weight around my mid section. Thus, I tend to buy things in a larger size and have them tailored. I got this dress last year, end of Summer and took it to the alterations lady. With a few adjustments it has become my nearly every day dress. It looks great, does not cling (please: disregard the suggestion of making this in Jersey! Most of us cannot pull that look), and after many washes it still has that "new" feel to it. I throw it is the wash, then the drier, a quick iron and ready to take on the day. Unlike many linens, this one doesn't wrinkle excessively so I can run tons of errands without looking like a frumpy mess. Last year I bought the light blue, and now I am ordering the black/cream one. I gave it 4 stars only due to needing the alterations. One more thing: I live in Texas, and it is extremely hot here 6 months out of the year. This dress is perfectly wearable for us. Make more like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy great , comfortable , dress . Neck a bit too large, and would be even better with pockets . A 3 season dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look I was so sure this was THE dress for spring/summer and expected nothing less based on such positive reviews. I struggled to remove it probably because of my broad shoulders, imagine if it was a hot day! Perhaps a back opening would work, even a back seam so I could add a zipper.... sad to say it's going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality I always appreciate Garnet Hill for their quality fabrics and this dress scores in that department. I love this dress but would love it more if it came in Petite. I'm 5' 2, 125 lbs and had to have the length altered a bit. Other than that, very happy with this purchase.
Date published: 2019-05-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile and attractive The fabric is substantial and the dress is well made. I thought it was a little boxy, but wore it on a cool day with a black long sleeve shirt underneath and a pair of black tights and thought it looked very chic. I am 5' 2", 112 lbs and curvy. The size 4 fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and simple I bought this for an outdoor summer wedding and it was just too casual so I had to return. Cute otherwise!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Linen Dropwaist Dress I saw this dress in the catalog and thought it would be perfect for my upcoming trip to Europe, so I purchased both a black and a blue one. Both were the same size and one was way too big and the other I could barely get on! When I measured the two dresses, there was a difference of four inches-one or both were obviously incorrectly sized. I contacted Customer Service and they were very helpful. Unfortunately, the dresses are on backorder until the end of June. Hopefully, they will arrive in time for my trip. The dresses are cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go Anywhere Dress I bought this for weeks ago in the black-and-white. I wish I ordered the blue at the same time But it is not available now. I love the dress it is so comfortable. I weigh 145 pounds and And 5’5”. I have a father best and was concerned about the fit. The dress fits me perfect. It looks great for the cooler weather with black tights and a bouquet cardigan. I look forward to wearing it in the summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love material, boxy style Love the mixed pattern, fabric but the style is very boxy in a not so flattering way

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looked better in the catalog I loved the feel and weight of the fabric but the dress just hung on me like a paper bag sack. The color just wasn’t as subtle as it appeared in the catalog either.
Date published: 2020-06-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not for curvy types OK, admittedly, I should have known better. Drop-waisted dresses aren't the best styles for us DD types. The fabric was nice -- good weight, so that it hangs nicely; the stripe is subtle and part of the weave, not printed, so it should wear well; stripe also doesn't provide so much contrast that placing it horizontally is unflattering. It just did nothing for my body to make me look like anything other than a lump. Would be really cute on a girl/woman with a boyish figure, but not on me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really cute design.....however. It’s fabulous if you’re 6 feet tall. Seriously please consider making this available in petite sizes. I liked the design so much I brought it to a tailor and had it shortened by 3 inches and now it’s perfect, but I shouldn’t have had to pay additional money for an item that was already pricey enough.

Hi.  Is this dress woven linen or knitted linen? It is called a tee shirt dress, so it begged the question.  Thank you.

This dress is woven linen.

What does "sweep" mean in garment measurements?

Asked by: peachespeachespeaches1111

Since this dress is linen, does it shrink much when washed and dried?
