Captiva Weekend Dress
What a disappointment!
I purchased the dress for my elderly mother, thinking that it would be easy for her to slip on and off. The fabric is rough/coarse and feels awful. The smell of the dye was strong and I was pretty sure that one wash and it was going to look dreadful.

size is very loose.
I was so happy when I saw the dress, style and color; but was disappointed when I tried it on. I'm in the process of stitching down the side seams to make it fit better. Thanks for making the side seams the last one so it makes it easier for me to adjust. Wish me luck!

I teach grade school, and I love the Captiva for the classroom. It's empire waist is flattering and the loose fit allows for easy movement - much needed to reach to write on the board or down to sit on the floor for a game. I have several colors of the same dress - and just wish they had it in red and black.

This dress looks 100% better in the photo in the catalogue. It is too long, and the top of it which looks as if it should be loose, fits tightly. As a result, I returned it.

Quality item; attractive casual look
I am pleased with the quality of the material and buttons/snap that prevent gaps in closure. Attractive and comfortable for variety of daily activities. And it really doesn't wrinkle!

Too big but just on the bottom, also too long.
The fabric seemed to be of good quality. The color was as expected. Loved the color. I wasn't sure what size to order. After reading the reviews, I decided to order the XL, instead of the 1X. The top fit but the bottom was way too big. The dress was also way longer than it appeared in the photo, maybe that is why she is up on her toes to make it appear a little shorter. The dress came to just over my ankles. I am 5'6", so I am not short. This dress might work well for someone who has a size differential between the top and bottom of her body of 2 sizes, maybe more. I am smaller on top by 1 size, in general. I am going to return it.

I liked this item. I do believe it runs on the full side. It was made well and is comfortable.
