Petite Spotted Ruched Skater Dress
Nice idea, poorly executed!
The idea of this dress is lovely. I agree with other reviewers though that the fabric isn't great. I stood in it for a little while trying to work out what I didn't like about it. In the end I think it is the cut. The detail at the neckline is pretty but really poorly stitched. I often have problems with the bust area on dresses stretching. On this one I didn't and was trying an 8, which still felt quite large. But the keyhole detail was not at all straight. Also, the zip seems to go a long way down the skirt, which stops it hanging nicely. The idea of this dress is great, the sleeves and neckline are lovely, the waist shaped. But it wasn't worth £40 given the problems with the finish so I've returned.

Poor quality and badly made although the style is lovely. I could have worn it wih the neck open as it was too tight above the bust but then noticed this was a fault of the gathers being badly sewn.

Bought for my mother, who tried it on and would have fallen in love with it had it not been for the extremely short length.
The picture depicted a good length, below the knee, but it was in fact way above the knee and she is five foot.
Such a shame, she would have loved this dress.
Can we have more petite for the older lady please, not just the young.

I was very disappointed with this dress - the material is like something you would buy on a market. It was very small I got my usual size10 but it was far too small. The only positive thing I can say is the style was very nice. Sorry the worst item I have tried from Marks in the last few years - definitely not your usual quality.
