Lovely roomy linen dress. It is as described, but you can downsize. I am a 10/12 and still have a tons of room in the XS. Great for hot days. The back does look boxy but I knew that. Would like to see this design with a more slim line back.

Beautiful fabric & lining gives this an elegant drape to the style. Definitely generous in cut as per reviews, so purchased a size down.. Sleeves can be rolled up or down, giving versatility to the style & the length is perfect for 166cm height. Pockets a bonus!

Nice dress but doea run very large. Could have gone down a size or 2. Didnt return but did sew the back box pleat down the centre line to the hem. Much more flattering

Love this dress and I am going to wear it with the sleeves down as it arrived. Already have the same style in a cross dye which I love too. Lots of my scarves look great with the gingham as well as some of my Blue Illusion jewellery. Going to get a lot of wear out of these dresses!

This is such a comfortable style to wear. Plenty of room in a medium when I’d normally take a large. The linen is a lovely fabric for hot days. A perfect dress for any occasion when travelling over summer.

Lovely dress fabric is gorgeous. Very roomy but still looks great. Stick hat and sandals on and ready for markets even in a Queensland summer.

Really looking forward to actually wearing this dress when some warm weather appears. It’s cool and flattering. The best thing about my experience buying it online is that Blue Illusion knows my size better than I do. I ordered XL, they sent L and it’s a perfect fit!
