Like the style.
The size I ordered was the only size left and is normally the size I wear. It turned out to be too snug but I could still wear it. I bought it to match my daughters dresses so I didn't want to return it. it'll do just was a bit tight.

This dress makes me happy
Hanna fashions have been my go-to gift for children for years, but I'd never bought Hanna for myself until now. I love all the dresses I purchased recently, but I'm glad I viewed the size chart first.
At a good, classic Boston retailer, I usually wear a Size 10/Medium. Ordering a Size 12 on this dress was the right call. The fit couldn't be better on my 5'7", 155-pound frame. It fits at waist, armholes and bust; my bust isn't out-sized, but it often feels smashed in other dresses. On the skirt, the soft inverted pleats give freshness and fit without much fullness, and I appreciate the side-seam pockets.
One reviewer was unhappy that the Patio Dress isn't lined. For me that's a plus, as lined dresses I've had like this sometimes feel hot and stiff. The lack of lining makes this less formal, and that's OK. The grosgrain tie belt is casual, too. It's cute on this style, and for a different look I change it out with black leather belts.
I bought this in the black Moroccan tile pattern, which I love; the tile look is hot now in fashion and home design. The dress is so versatile, though, I'm ordering another in Blue Pool or Tiger Orange.

The fabric is so soft and the cut is a little forgiving and not too tight. I gave up the belt as too cute but I did order the matching daughter dress!

Comfy, feminine, and flattering
Not to mention I love that I "matched" my 3 year old daughter without feeling like I was dressing like a 3 year old. I would buy this dress in another pattern.

These dresses are versatile and fit very well
I bought two, loved the way they fit, waited for the sale and bought two more! Can be dressed up or down, length is not grandmommy nor two short. I haven't washed them so I don't know what they'll look like post wash pre-iron; however, the dresses I've bought for my girls have always washed beautifully. Only complaint--Hanna runs out of patterns way too quickly, doesn't restock said patterns, and doesn't carry womens clothing in their stores...

Very disappointed with the quality.
for this price and brand name I would expect the dress to be lined. Very disappointed with the quality. The print is really cute as well as the style. I would expect to pay under $35.00 for this dress.

I bought matching dresses for my two little girls and thought it would be fun to have a matching dress with them. The dress looks much cheaper than a $90 dress. It actually has a ribbon for a belt tied around the waist.... it was also a loose fit through the chest and armholes..

cut of dress aweful
I was so disappointed with this dress! The fabric is beautiful, and the style looked like it would be perfect, but the fit was just terrible. While it fit across the chest, the waist was exceptionally high and large, as was the cut at the hips. The armholes were tight. It was just wrong all around for me. This style of dress if generally one that always fits me, but this dress made me look like a very colorful whale... I returned it along with the matching dress for my daughter. So bummed.
