Linen Blend 3/4 Sleeve Waisted Midi Dress is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 89.
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 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable, even one size down Saw this on the website and am very glad that I heeded the advice to go for a smaller size. I'm an 18/20, with a broad back and a big bum, but the 16 fits (and flatters) perfectly. I have a very short neck, so was worried the neckline might be unflattering but it is great, and lovely to have the option of unbuttoning. I've bought both the navy and the khaki, but would have loved something brighter: rust or cherry red, say. Not washed them yet, so hoping they'll be quite easy to iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dress of the summer ! I saw @stylemesunday wearing this dress on Instagram& it looked fab! So I bought it in black & navy, worn it lots already .Had so many compliments & have recommended friends to buy it. Its really comfortable, barely creases & hangs beautifully.It washes up well too. Cannot recommend this highly enough ! Nice design M&S!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Khaki dress. I had to get a size smaller in this,to get fit right, which is unusual, I don't normally have to vary my size.. Bought size 8 navy when saw it in store, like others have said came up large. Then an 8 in khaki as reviews had said it came up smaller in khaki, but it bloused too much at back. Finally reordered a 6 in khaki and that is a good fit. I would have preferred a shirred waist like the white cotton dress I ordered as the elastic does ride up a bit, so maybe just a tie. Personal choice. The length I may have to shorten. not decided, but the material is lovely and cool and the front pockets are different, although I prefer them on side seams usually. I'm keeping it as I like it more than not. Got 15% off.

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 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 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 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 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 1 out of 5 by from Awful in all respects The dress arrived, creased and rumpled.So would bode ill for wearing. The colour is a very dull navy. The material feels more like flannel than linen. The style is unflattering with drawstring waist and neckline. A belt would be better for the waist. It hangs unevenly, even if I had ironed it , which I didn’t as could see I would have to return it, with no improvement, as skirt is cut so that it widens out from the hips. !!!. Would not flatter any age group. Younger members of the family wouldn’t consider shopping at M&S, too frumpy. Come on you can do better than this.

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 Linen Blend 3/4 sleeve midi dress Looking for a khaki dress to take me through warm summer days, I spotted this in one of my local stores. Although the colour is described as Dark Almond, it is more of a light khaki. I took a chance and bought in my usual size, 12, and it fits perfectly. Sleeves are a good length, sitting just on the elbow. At 5'6" length too is good, mid calf. Was not sure about an elasticated waist in this style of dress, but it does work well, despite the loose fit of the dress which is very comfortable and easy to wear. It gives a feeling of 'freedom' as you move. Liked it so much I have since bought it in soft white/cream, although this colour way is quite see through, but makes you feel instantly cool. Good value for money, I would happily recommend....if I must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice comfortable dress Bought this after seeing it on a slim staff member. I am a large size 20 but decided to try it on and was pleased with how I looked in it. Bought a navy size 20 and wear it with first 2 buttons undone and chunky style necklace. It has washed well and is a good length on me. Good style to wear with different styles of shoes. Great for my city break to Italy recently. Wish they did it in some brighter colours too. White not good with the grandchildren and Khaki a bit depressing for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Danish chic I’m calling this my Danish Chic dress. It’s got an effortless Scandinavian style to it - natural linen fabric, relaxed fit, sophisticated casual. I’m usually a 14 but the 12 is a perfect fit. I’ve worn it at work in the hot weather, with a leopard print scarf in the evening and with converse trainers for a camping weekend. It’s a great all rounder with pockets for my mobile phone. Love it!

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 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 Fabulous I purchased this dress in store and am so glad that I hadn't read some of the reviews before or I'd have been put off! I actually went up a size because I wanted the lovely, slightly batwing sleeves to be a real feature. The elasticated waist is very comfortable and I can pull it in further with the draw string. It's obvious, from the model on the website, that the loose fit over the bust is intentional and so it's not for those who want a fitted style. I usually buy black but went for navy as it's a beautiful rich, deep shade. I can see myself wearing this dress well into the autumn with a tee shirt underneath. My only gripe is that it comes in regular length only. I'm 6' and would have loved this even more had I been able to purchase in a longer length. The regular sits just below my knees. Calf length would have been amazing

Rated 3 out of 5 by from super length loved the feel and length of the dress but didnt like elastic in waist did think about snipping it but decided against so daly returned

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 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Simple style in blue I bought the blue version of this dress in the sale. I really wanted the almond version of it which had caught my eye in the store, but that was not in the sale as the blue was. When I saw the almond version I was surprised to see that it was Per Una which I normally hate as I find it too fussy and frumpy; so perhaps the brand has turned a corner. Yes, as has been mentioned the dress is roomy, but I think that is how it should look and I am please with it.. Just hoping for the almond to reduce now

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 1 out of 5 by from Promising but ruined by elastic waist! Agree with all the faults reported by many other reviewers. Especially the inclusion of elastic waist placed so high which ruins the style and versatility - major and really quite stupid design flaw. Could have been useful summer item, especially in the variety of colours (a good point) although this waist shaping just makes it end up unflattering and quite frumpy.

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 little everyday dress Bought this dress for holiday, perfect for traveling, sightseeing and casual wear. Comfortable, cool and easy to wear.

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 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.
