M&S Collection Tunic Tweed Dress
Love this dress too
I have bought three dresses this month, all for a new job, and which I'm so pleased with. This one in particular is smart enough for work, but great for casual use too. At 5' 10" I would have preferred it to be a little bit longer, but with thick black tights it still looks good. It is very comfy too. More dresses like this please!

Nice idea, but poor fit
I liked the fabric of this dress. The sleeves were slim fitting and give the dress a smart feel. The tweed fabric was also nice, structured without being stiff. But the cut didn't seem at all shaped to a woman's body. I am petite (5'1") but am often ok with non-tailored non-petite dresses. Sadly, this one was to not be but I think it could work well on someone taller.

Nice dress, but proceed with caution..
Bought this for work, easy to pull on, really comfy, doesn't need ironing and looks stylish. Fit was true to size (I am a curvy size 16 and 5'10), and it falls just above the knee. Had quite a few compliments wearing this, with black opaque tights and flat shoes. Good price too. However, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, it does indeed catch on anything and everything if you're not extremely careful!

Good Everyday Dress
Love this dress as it's quite casual and easy to wear, and has my favourite three quarter length sleeves. The pocket(s) is/are a nice touch, but I wouldn't put anything other than a tissue in it! It's good with black opaque tights and flat-ish shoes. The fit (size 16) is fine on me, if a tiny bit big - having read the other reviews I feel I might be a bit bigger than I thought! My only complaint is that it definitely needs a non-clingy slip and even then the two inches of fabric between the bottom of the slip and the dress length hugs the knees in an irritating way. Would have been better to line the dress and charge a bit more. I haven't washed it yet so can't comment on that, but think it might be better to wash it inside out.
