I Really Wanted to Keep This Dress, But...

I admired this dress since it first appeared in the Blue Canoe catalog and was happy to buy it when it went on sale. I absolutely love the indescribably soft fabric, which lends the perfect drape and weight for Fall and Winter. The mock turtle neck is attractive and the classic cut and dress length suits my tall, thin frame perfectly. Sadly, I cannot tolerate the sleeves on this dress. The sleeves are too short to be "full-length" as advertised and too long to be 3/4-length. I might have put up with that flaw except that the ribbed, clunky cuffs (3-1/4") simply do not suit the design of the dress at all. The sleeves meet the cuff in a gathered seam that might have been OK if the sleeves were longer and if the cuff seam fell near my wrist, but the too-short sleeves mean the fullness of the sleeve/cuff seam falls in a weird place on my forearms I tried the dress on with a variety of jackets and sweaters to see if I could tolerate the shorter sleeves, but the sleeve/cuff fullness showed through at the middle of my forearms and felt annoying. Worst of all, in certain lights, the long-ish ribbed cuffs aren't even the same deep black as the dress fabric; they appear as if they were an attempt to compensate for not cutting the sleeves long enough. I'm afraid I am going to have to return this dress. Please, Blue Canoe, re-think the design of the sleeves of this otherwise beautiful dress. I would vote for simply longer sleeves that end in a simple hem with no cuff.

Material and fit

Beautiful material. But very tight. I usually wear a 10 Or may be a 12 In some euro clothing lines. I ordered a medium sent back for a large and even that felt like a leotard. Sad to say I could not make it work. You would have to be pencil thin for this to work.

Favorite dress!

I use this product mainly at work. My friend saw me in this dress and exclaimed that it was her favorite of all the dresses I own! Really nice fit and flattering on me - not too tight, not too lose, and just the right length!
