I love this dress. I am tall and it was so nice to make it the length that I want. Will look great this fall with a Jean jacket!

Perfect dress for cozy fall weather

I LOVE this dress!! It’s soft and comfy, toss on a cute sweater and I’m set for a cute fall style! Fit is perfect, didn’t even need to cut it.

Crazy comfortable and cute

This dress is so comfy, but it looks cute and can be accessorized if wanting to dress it up. The material is not so thin you can see through nor is it too heavy. I could live in it!

Love the concept!

I'm a fairly petite person (110 lb, 5' 1" tall). I struggle with long dresses because they always runs long! This concept of cutting the dress to length yourself without needing to hem is great! The overall fit is nice but the shoulders are a bit broader in the dress than a usual XS, that makes this dress a 4.5 for me, rather than a 5. The fabric is very comfortable. The slight ruffle at the hem of the sleeves adds a cute, playful touch :)
