This is a winner
To me this dress is sort of 70's retro It is true to size, a medium is fine even at a 38 bust its not tight.I would imagine that goes with the other sizes also.The belt is garbage but everybody has belts to replace this one. I now have this dress in black and rust and love both.I like the fact Brian uses lining with his dresses.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased this dress a few months ago and I've been wearing it for business. It's very comfortable and it looks professional with some flair. The inside lining is very comfortable and fits perfectly if you purchase your size. Whenever I don't know what to wear, I will put it on as there's no thinking involved. I've also added my own belt to make it more personal. I'm surprised that at this price this dress is still available.

could be worn when on a a side saddle
from North Vancouver
My purchase was the moss which is a warmer green than the blue-green pictured online.The belt that is provided is useless as there is nothing to keep it fastened.Luckily I have a beautiful black belt that works.The lining is snug but overall it is an attractive design that fits well..Has a nice weight to it.....G
Cut out the linings!!!!!
I spent all day trying to decide how to modify this dress, and it was so simple. Just cut out the lining to release the tension in the dress, sew up the collar, and add a ruched belt of the lining material. Now I feel comfortable, instead of feeling like a stuffed sausage. Thank you so much for the extra material of the linings, I use them for other projects. I have curves and I need the elasticity for them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great everyday dress
By sewing susan
from Scarborough, Ontario
The fit of this dress is great. I love the way it drapes and moves. The only negative comment is about the belt - it does not stay secure and keeps sliding open. I will have to replace it, but the dress itself more than makes up for that.

I purchased this in Moss. The colour and cut is EXTREMELY flattering to a full figure. I was surprised to see the lower waistline and belt ( I normally never wear one )is actually what I loved on this dress. The cut and fit are perfect. The dress is warm and with a jacket and boots it is the perfect go to town dress in winter weather.The material is rich and figure hugging and the lower portion swings and sways when walking against ones legs making you feel ultra feminine. Wonderful cure for the winter wear blase' blues! It doesn't have to be always jeans and sweaters and boots!

Pattern NOT MATCHED
from FORT ERIE
I previously reviewed this before wearing it. However after wearing it, I realized the pattern (rust multi) which is large and pronounced, is not matched on the two front pieces and the sleeves. The back is good and the skirt seemed ok, but I expected not to have this problem from Brian. It overall looks unbalanced because of the mismatched BOLD pattern. I had also been concerned that the inner skirt would be too warm or ride up, but it was fine. At the hem, however, the WHITE REVERSE of the fabric shows when the skirt moves. I am picky. I sew well, and one of my pet peeves with prints is the white showing of the reverse if it happens to flip open or over in this case. I do like the dress, but I will hang a scarf around the neck to distract from the mismatch. If I had looked carefully, the online sample is not matched well either, so I would have passed it by. In fairness, the solid colours are probably fine, but I am tired of matte jersey. I would recommend the solids.

I bought this dress in the rust print which I loved on the show. I was a bit concerned that the fabric might be too "wooly", but it is a very fine knit. I am long waisted so the drop waist is not so dropped on me, and I love it! I am not sure the self lining was necessary, but I appreciate the lavish use of fabric. I have not worn the dress yet and I hope the lining does not make it too warm, if it does I can just cut it out! Sorry Brian! I do look forward to wearing the dress. It is worth every penny!
