Linen Blend 3/4 Sleeve Waisted Midi Dress is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy dress Great fabric, brilliant length dress and sleeves, really comfy to wear, washed and dried quickly, just a quick press and you can wear it again. I also have it Navy. Would be nice to have a floral or checkered pattern too. Really happy with my purchase. Ideal for any occasion, weekends, work or holidays, could be dressed up with scarfs or jewellery, can be worn with a pretty camisole underneath and leaving the top couple of buttons open.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress but... This is a great spring / summer dress. It’s almost exactly the same as a dress I bought in Zara last year which fast became my favourite so was pleased to see this version in different colours. However they’ve ruined it a bit with the elasticated waste - as others have said no need with a drawstring, would have felt much more comfortable & looked more flattering if left as a drawstring. Other than that a great dress & classic style!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes but no but yes but... All the faults noticed by the other reviewers are issues with this dress. Lovely drawstring waist ruined by the inclusion of elastic - major and really quite idiotic design flaw. Yes, it's kind of big on top, but I kind of like that. A bit frumpy? Maybe - I'd describe as more utilitarian. All in all, I like it. The one I got was bit big for me so I plan to size down; let's see how that goes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make sure you go down a size This dress is lovely I ordered my usual 20 but had to drop to an 18 as it is HUGE. Lovely summer easy to wear dress and the linen is of a good quality. I ordered the dress in navy and black and the navy one is 3 inches longer in length than the black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Khaki linen blend dress So glad I bought my khaki dress, so easy to wear up or down, after heeding reviews I successfully sized down from usual 10 to 8. The style is so relaxed but pretty and suits hourglass frame. Would normally go for V neck or slash neck to flatter my upper body but even this dress’s scooped neckline looks good. So! My disappointment at stocks running so low in size 8. Navy - sold out! Cream - available but I can’t keep clean in cream/white! Only other option - black - washes out my fair skin and light/gold hair! Makes me look 10 years older. Drat. Hope more stocks will bring back navy for me. Or even better, grey, chambray, purple, teal please. Meanwhile I’m enchanted by my khaki linen blend dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this so bought two!! In different colours. So pleased with this easy to wear dress. Love the length and the sleeves are extremely flattering! This is going to be so useful, great for shopping, going to the office, and, of course sunny days by the sea. Easy to dress up with chunky earrings or necklace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great useful dress Really nice dress although I ordered a size smaller than normal. I really like the fit and the pockets. Please can we have this style in a brighter colour. Although useful the colours are a bit boring.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have been lovely. This dress is wonderful in every way apart from the elasticated waist which ensures the dress makes me look like a bloomer. Please do this dress with a self tie belt instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing Bought the khaki and navy,,the khaki was noticeably shorter and smaller than the navy. As the navy was very generous I kept them both, but I can’t understand why they would be so different. I think it makes the perfect day dress to walk the dog in or nip to the shops, one you can throw on and your good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy, easy going dress The navy version will be my go to dress for the summer. Loose but not too loose, and finally something long enough. Sleeve length also works well, below the elbow but above the wrist, and pockets are an added bonus. Will cinch in with a leather belt to smarten up, although drawstrings are quite long so will need tucking in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to wear dress I got this dress in khaki. Its first outing was over the Easter weekend, when the weather was warm and sunny and it drew compliments. The dress was cool and comfortable with its elbow-length sleeves and midi length. Went nicely with tan sandals. The buttons mean you can tailor the neckline to your own preference. Despite other comments, I actually liked the tie-waist that was also elasticated - helped give the dress shape. I like this dress so much I'm going to get it in navy too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too baggy for me I wanted to like this dress but there was just too much material on the top half for me. A size down would have meant the dress was a bit tight over the hips. Such a shame as the material is good - the dress hangs well and the linen mix means it won't crease too much. The length was good and the darker colours would have meant I could wear this to the office - but the fit was wrong for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going to be a summer staple Beautiful colour, quality buttons, easy yet stylist fit. Lovely fabric. Would work either for both smart with heeled espadrille sandals; or casual with white trainers. The Per Una clothes this year are easily the best collection yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A light summer dress you can add to I always read the reviews and although slightly on the big size I chose my normal 12. I want to beable to wear my breton tees if cooler underneath, feel cool if it's hot and so wanted it loose. Navy is lovely but, how about a summer colour? Coral, light blue? I am a trendy 57 yr old without trying to look too young and this is an ideal dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect easy dress received many compliments on this dress already. It's the perfect easy dress to throw on and get on with the day at work or out socially. Light but good quality fabric, and happy that the waist tie is actually at the waist and not too high or low. I bought a size up as I like slightly looser clothing and because I have larger breasts, and this was ideal for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal summer frock Love this, bought the navy in store yesterday and promptly ordered a black one as well - collected today. Unfortunately the drawstring is almost an inch lower on the black one so the top balloons out. Think I’ll look in store again though, as it is a really useful dress. It does come up large though - I bought a size smaller than usual. I really like the elasticated waist as well as the drawstring though I seem to be in the minority on this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer dress I spotted this on the rail in store in navy and bought it after trying on a couple of sizes. As per others’ comments, the dress is cut generously and I’m normally size 12/14 and chose the 12 as it was the best fit across the shoulders. The neckline is flattering with the buttons and the pleating at the back across the shoulders is very pretty and drapes beautifully. This will be a great dress to pack for holiday as it’s versatile and would work for sightseeing as well as for the evening. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely linen dress I saw this dress online and thought how good to have a longer style dress in linen, a comfortable natural fibre. Unfortunately the colours, khaki - white - and navy - were a little bit on the drab side, I bought the navy but even that seemed unsuitable, so sadly I had to return it. Shame because a prettier colour would have been so much nicer. Cheer up M&S and lets have some nicer colours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too short I really liked this dress but at 5'8 it was not midi on me, it fell to an awkward length just below the knee, so sadly returned. It would have been a 'keeper' had a longer length been available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Summer linen dress I went down a size after reading the reviews and it was still very big. The elasticated waist was far too high for me. Did not suit my figure at all. Might suit if you are tall, small busted with short upper body length. Quality was good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! A lovely comfortable casual dress that you can dress up with heels and jewellery or down with sandals. I absolutely love the style with the two pockets. I bought midi although I’m short as I like dresses and skirts to almost reach my ankle. If you are taller, it would probably sit on the calf. I’ve now bought the khaki, black and navy. The material is not very thin, so will take you through Spring and Autumn as well as Summer. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic summer essential Spotted this dress in Esthers style blog and purchased immediately. Fit is on the larger side so I ended up with a 12 (I’m a 14) & have styled with a different belt. A useful staple for many summers to come!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a shame I loved everything about this dress: colour, material, length, sleeve length...... until I tried it on and moved my arms! The waist rode up at the back and it was ugly and uncomfortable. Why M & S have to elasticate the waist and ruin a perfectly good dress is a puzzle. There is a tie belt which would enable you to find your natural waist. I have seen several dresses in this year's range that I would have purchased had they not had an elasticated waist. To me it is a leftover of the old M & S designs. I returned the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s okay I think I like the idea of this dress rather than the reality. I’ve decided to keep it as I think/hope it will be useful but I’m still not sure that it suits me. I’d admired it on a friend but she is small & slender whereas I’m tall and more shapely. I’m worried it makes me look ‘buxom’ and matronly. I sized down after reading reviews. My daughter says it looks nice so I’ve kept it. It’s nicely made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality & Style Unfortunately this dress did not live up to my expectations - it was very big even though I sized down and if Im honest the material made it look like an old sack. I ordered it in navy and khaki - the navy one was slightly better but both came very creased and looked a bit like dishcloths! Wanted to love this but had to send back. Also at 5ft 3" the dress was too long which added to the frumpiness of the look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased my usual size previously (14) and it was huge on me so I gave to my sister. Went down a size and still big!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great linen dress This dress is lovely, I’m 5.3’ and i really liked the mid length. Definitely buy it smaller, i came down two sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked this dress but... I bought this dress in navy. The fabric and colour were fine. I'd wanted a dress that had a waist, but was loose and comfortable, and almost kept this, but it's just not special enough, maybe a bit too loose and comfortable looking.
Date published: 2019-04-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It looked so good online. Like others, the elasticated waist is totally unnecessary when there is already a drawstring. There was so much fabric in it, I went down 3 sizes and it was still bulging out at the back. It would have been fabulous as just a straight dress, with the patch pockets and perhaps a collar, as the neckline was quite strange! Sadly all three returned.
