    Promising review: "This dress is a very soft fabric and can be dressed up by adding a few accessories. It is very comfortable and fits true to size. The length of the dress is perfect for me, because the hem falls just below my knee and it is not a clingy fabric. The pockets are great and the 3/4 sleeves are great for cooler evenings." —kd8krr
