I think I will get plenty of wear out of this dress and love the colour. I did change the size to a smaller one which is a much better fit.

Can style this dressy or casual. It's a pretty ruby red (hard to find) not tomato red, so I love it. Irons and wears well too . It's a looser fit so be aware in sizing.

Absolutely beautiful dress, gorgeous soft fabric, beautiful colour, very easy to wear. I am an 18 and bought the 2XL - fits perfectly. Very happy :)

Beautiful linen. I like the comfort of this dress but downsized for a less volumous look. The rouge is more a lovely pink red

This is a beautifully made, quality garment which fits to perfection. It is one of the nicest dresses I have ever bought.

I bought the rouge colour. The fabric hangs well and it washes well. It’s a great Christmas dress. I’m thinking of the blue one now…

I just adore this dress, I purchased it in the rouge colour and have now purchased it in the blue. The fabric is just beautiful and sits well. Very pleased with my purchase. Another lovely dress from Blue Illusion. Thank you.

Lovely dress. Easy to wear and very comfortable. As a larger woman this fits really well and you feel good in it. I brought the 3L, usually size 20 and it has plenty of room.

This is my first Blue Illusion purchase. I love everything about the dress, the cool fabric, size and the red colour. I’m a size 10 and the extra small size is perfect.

So happy with the comfort and sizing of this linen dress. I am a generous size 18 on top and size 20 on bottom and bought the red in 3L for something different as I have so much blue and black in my wardrobe already. So easy to throw on the go. Perfect for hot days and with a denim jacket for cooler evenings. Will be my xmas dress - so comfy and flowy. Love the length & the pockets too!

Waiting for the warmer weather to be able to enjoy the full benefits of this dress. Delighted with the colour, I have plans involving various shoes and scarves to create many different looks.

Absolutely stunning dress, even on my fuller torso. Shop had it with Iris Leaf necklace looked subtlety great and with ragey reds either wine or post box red....look equally good.

The dress is just as described. It’s very comfortable to wear and I would buy it again if there were more colours.

(Posted on 28 Feb 2020)

I have bought this dress in all three colours. It is flattering - slightly below the knee, flowing silhouette and with sleeves - and the linen is lovely and great for summer. I would love more in designs like this and bold colours, as the yellow is my favourite.

Wore this dress Thursday in 38 degrees temps in Canberra. A lovely silhouette and light linen fabric. Totally comfortable and cool. I bought the chambray colour, but the mustard will look great on people with warm toned skin. Just a stunning dress, think I need to get a backup!
