Sophia Two-Piece Dress
Love this dress!
I took the advice of other purchasers and ordered a size smaller than normal and the dress fits perfectly. It is very becoming and covers those midriff bulges; also love the flare of the skirt. I ordered the blue and am very pleased with it. I have not worn it yet but it should be great for New Year's Eve and an upcoming cruise. I would not pay full price and i agree that the shipping is too expensive, especially if you have to return it....it pays to read the reviews.

I'm usually very happy with Appleseed's clothes, but not this time. The top just hangs there making me look fat. I liked the two-layered bottom, but the waist was too large. I tried to tuck in the top and add a scarf around the waist, but it still was too big and I still felt frumpy. The periwinkle blue color is gorgeous. Sorry, but it's coming back.

The blue dress is a very nice color..runs large.
I bought this item for my husband's 70th BDay party.
Color is nice and the fabric is light and airy.
BUT....the top fits OK....slightly big......the skirt waistband was
VERY: loose. I paid $18. at the tailor's ...just to take in the elastic.
And I am NOT skinny!!! I wear a 14-16. This dress was a 16 top and a size 18+ skirt!!!! When you factor in the tailoring fee....this dress was not inexpensive! If you order this dress.....order DOWN at least one size.....and you still may have to fix the waistband.

Nice dress with flattering lines
I love the color and the drape of this dress. It was a little big so I returned it for a smaller size, which is perfect.

good quality and comfort
Looking forward to wearing this to a wedding. Other review said runs big and it does. Bought a size smaller and is still roomy which is fine as it is not a form fitting style. Looks great on me-

Not made to fit me.
I loved the color. And the construction and workmanship seemed very well done. Unfortunately they must use a measurement standard that is nothing like my shape. The skirt over all, was much to large and long, while the top was snug in the shoulders and bust,but too loose in the belly hip area. So even if I could have ordered the two pieces as separates, it wouldn't have worked for me.

I had to return the size 24 as it was way too big. I re ordered the 22 and I think that will be just right.
BTW the color is NOT fuschia. It is more of a flamingo pink!

In the catalog it looked outstanding but just average when I got it.
