Now I would recommend this but only if your tall, as Im on the small side and the skirt part just comes on my knee. It buries my petite frame a lot makes my top half look bigger than I am and skirt part makes me look a lot shorter than I am and Im already short, will sadly have to return but its a lovely dress great material nice for summer but just not for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tuctuca Very short on a tall bird!
Pretty dress, stretchy fabric, cant decide if a good or bad thing? Nice colours, very very short though but I am 5'11 so likely just that, nice otherwise.

Nice fit. Length just on the knee. Don't like anything any shorter. Looks great with sandles/ wedges and a denim jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 123abc Stripe Skirted Dress with Red Belt
Great little summer dress with a nautical theme of stripes and the classic red/white/blue combination, it can easily be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. The top part of the dress is quite a fitted design, with a crew neck, so there is no gaping at the front if you lean forward and the armholes are also small and neat and again there is no gaping and showing bra. Material is a comfortable jersey style fabric, so there is a little stretch to the material for a comfortable fit and ease of movement.
The skirt is a thin, light cotton type material, which is gathered into the waistline so the skirt isn't a straight pencil skirt style. It could have done with being a little heavier weight as it does tend to lift on windier days, so may have to sew in some weights along the hemline for the sake of modesty! The length is around knee length on me at 5'9".
The belt is a lovely bright red, which fastens with a stud on the underneath into a corresponding series of holes, so is adjustable to fit. Fortunately, this one seems to have escaped the problem of the long sleeved version of this dress from last season as it actually fits the size it is meant to. Ideal for me as I can use the belt from this dress on both the long sleeve and sleeveless versions! Can also substitute a different belt to change the look.
I bought my usual size and found it to be an excellent fit, so would say that sizes run true, material is easy care, so minimal effort required to launder it, although skirt does need a quick run over with the iron ideally, it is a great dress to have for summer wear.
