I bought 4 of these sundresses - I wear a size Medium, and these dresses have been a lifesaver during this hot hot summer. I tried to remember what I used to wear in the hot summertime, and I thought "Sundress! and sandals..." so I ordered 1 of these dresses to see if it fit and if it washed washed well without shrinkage (it passed with flying colors), bought some flip flops in bright colors - and after my shower every morning, I put on sunscreen, one of these dresses, and my flips and I'm good to go. And go I do, with a sunhat and tote I'm out and set for the day.

The dress did not shrink: I washed it gentle, cool, and dried it on delicate for 10 minutes, and hung to dry the rest of the way. I might run a quick iron over the skirt, although it's not badly wrinkled at all. If you like crisp pressed clothing, you'll want to iron this; it's optional in my opinion, depending on where I was going to wear it.

Anyhow, don't miss this dress! the price, quality, and the sheer fun of wearing something cool and comfortable even in 103 degree weather - - it's all good with this dress. Buy one or more, I'm back here to write this review, and to pick up two more. They're *that* great!

Having lost 65 pounds, I was in the market for a new wardrobe. National is definitely has my favorite clothing.

This dress, however, was not for me. The armholes and yoke feel somewhat tight. The extra fabric and stitching in the yoke prevents it from "giving". I bought this sleeveless dress for really hot days but it's not cool. Needs ironing, too.

I've only worn this dress once; now it hangs in my closet. I believe it was the most expensive casual dress that I bought and I know it is the least worn.

I wear the dress around my apartment and on the patio, finding it very pretty and comfortable. I dislike ironing and do have to iron the dress, not a large task, however.

        I have 3 of these and love them. The colors are pretty, they fit well, the fabric isn't too thin or too thick. They are much cooler to wear than pants in the summer. Great dress!

              I use this dress within the house only because: 1) the fabric, while nice, is too light and a slip is needed; 2) it's too short for me at 5'10".

                  This item is well-designed and attractive. However, there was overall shrinkage even though I washed it in cold water and hung it to dry.

                    I like most things about this dress however, the yoke is very hard to iron and make it look nice, and you DO have to iron it as well as the rest of the dress. The dress is cotton, like heavy oxford shirting, and so it does not look nice for very long.

                          We have very hot weather in the Central Valley of California. I wanted a cool casual dress to change into in the evenings after work, but I have to iron it every time I take it out of the dryer because it is so wrinkled. It isn't exactly easy care.

                            Looks great enough to wear to Church. It is very comfortable and great for the desert weather.

                              This is a cute patio dress; the top part is quite fitted while below the breast the dress is breezy and roomy. I made a cute beach minidress after hemming off 13 inches of the length to make a really cute beach cover up.

                                    I use these to sleep in and they are very comfortable. I was finally able to find fabric that was not flimsy and see through. I am 60 years old AND NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT.

                                    Very disappointed. While this looked like a cute pool/patio dress. It shrank at the first washing. Even though I was careful to wash it with cold water only. It is impossible to get the wrinkles out and you can see through it. I want and need something for our hot California days and not something that requires a slip.
