The fabric was better than I expected. It's that kind of thick-ish linen type fabric that you often see with vintage dresses, it's just a little bit rough, in the BEST possible way. Before I say this next bit, I do have to say, that I really like this dress, quite a bit actually, but there are 3 things that bum me out a bit, but not enough for me to not like it.
1st, it is VERY short on me. Now I realize that at 6ft tall, I'm above the average in height, so on anyone shorter it would work very well. That being said, I will absolutely wear this dress with short leggings in the summer, but will wear it over jeans in the winter.
2nd, the black band around the waist gets lost. The weird thing is, the dress fits like a glove, not too tight, not to loose, just perfect. But, the black band keeps rolling up on me and I have to constatly pull it down, which is why I've just put a belt over it.
3rd, I feel like the print looks a little like camo from far away, which is sort of terrible, as I hate, hate, hate camo. However, when you actually look at it, the print doesn't look like camo at all. So that's kind of sucky. As I'm not the camo wearing type. I'll need other opinions on this please!
Now that I've had my say, here are some photos:
