This is a lovely dress and I've received so many compliments every time I wear it. I am petite and it hits me mid-calf, which I think is a great length for wearing year-round. In the winter you can pair it with stockings and a cardigan, and in the summer it can be worn on it's own without being too hot. The flutter sleeves are a nice feminine touch and sit flat under cardigans and jackets. The top is very stretchy and will mold to your bust size, and I find the high waist very flattering. Sizing is accurate.
