I have bought, I believe, to date, 8 of these dresses....all colors, all are the crinkle cotton dress by National!!! I live in Las Vegas and it gets so so hot for many months out of the year. Since I am a transplant, I started out with capris, shorts, sun dresses...I always felt that I was a mess after a few hours in the heat. These are "Heaven sent" I throw them in the washer when I receive them, cold water, woolite, but, have used Tide, gentle cycle. Some I have put in the dryer, some I hang to dry!!! They are just beautiful, and, I end my day, looking as good as I started my day!! I got cute bright jewelry, darling sandels for each and the ladies at church talk to me about my dresses each time I walk in!!!! I am a grandmother, but, I have had much younger ladies come up to me and ask where I get my dresses. I really felt great when I had my granddaughters friend, age 10 years, come up to me and say "I really like you're dress, it has so many bright colors in it, my mom waits to see what you are wearing...tee hee Thank you National, I am one happy lady!!!

I had to reorder this dress TWO sizes smaller than the size my measurements are on the size chart. The sleeves keep riding up on the underside of my arms. Not sure why this is, but I find I have to keep pulling them down. I love the fabric, especially since there is no need to wear a slip. The colors are true for the jade, lilac and blueberry. However, the raspberry, which looks like a soft medium pink online, is actually a very bright fuschia. Pink is a good color for me but I will have to return this as the color is definitely too bright for this plus sized woman to wear!

          the only con to this dress is that it has some wrinkles, but it's no big deal. I have purchased items in the past from the company for my mother-in-law, but this is the first for me. have purchased 2 other items and plan to purchase more. It's hard to choose just one color for this dress. I highly recommend this company. Keep up the good work.

                        The dresses are fine, but length varies widely. Fuchsia is too short and green is slightly to long

                        I bought two of these dresses for my elderly mom. She is very particular about her clothes, BUT she really likes these dresses. They are cool, comfortable, easy to care for and can be dressed up or down with accessories. I hope that they will come in more colors in the near future.

                            I wear this as a house dress, specifically for lounging around in afternoons. It is made well, not flimsy material at all. I go out into yard or to mailbox in it. I love the deep pockets & ruffle on the bottom. I purchased two (pink & lavender) & plan on purchasing more. I do not dry in dryer since I read in other reviews it will shrink. I don't know but chose to drip dry then throw in dryer without heat. I add a fabric softener sheet to dryer. This works very well for me. I plan on purchasing more colors.

                              Very stiff, uncomfortable fabric. Neckline is huge.

                                The fabric is quite a bit heavier than I expected, but the loose fit of the dress should keep it from being too warm. The Cranberry fabric is considerably heavier than the Blueberry; neither is anywhere near 'delicate' but the other colors may be different.

                                I took off two stars, because of the ridiculously huge neckline (on size Sm), which seems to belong on a size L or XL. This issue will prevent me from wearing the dress around anyone other than immediate family.
