Ponte Scoopneck Dress
I own three!
I am 5' 9'' and have so much trouble finding dresses and skirts that cover my knees. These are the perfect length, have a slightly shaped fit that is very flattering, and they wash well. I get compliments every time I wear them. They're much more flattering than the ponte dresses that other companies sell, which are often shapeless sacks, or too short.
I have to say I would prefer full-length sleeves, but at least these sleeves show off bracelets well!
You can wear the dress with regular shoes, or any type of boots for a different look. Wear a great necklace or else a scarf. I wish Appleseed's would offer this in a medium or light gray.

Ordered Wrong Size
I have been going back and forth with this dress for almost a month. The quality is excellent, and the price on this teal sale item was too good to pass up....except it was too small. I am now on my last try as I await Petite Large in both the black and the chocolate. I may have to have the item altered because the Misses L was too baggy/long, but Medium was too snug. Beautiful dress!

Love this dress so much that I ordered one in every size that Appleseed's has. I'd love for Appleseed's to add a blue-red (not orange-red) and a purple, as well as a royal blue to the mix. I'm in line to buy!

Problem with quality control
Dress was well cut, well planned, material was flawed with a streak down the exact middle. I returned it.
I do appreciate Appleseed's making garments suitable for non-teenagers.

Nice for fall
Nicely made dress. Heavier weight fabric compared to a tee-shirt dress. Good for when the weather turns cooler, but I'd want long sleeves in the winter and a less open neckline. Needs a belt, necklace or scarf to spruce up. Overall a nice basic wardrobe foundation.

Order a size down
It's a little baggy, will need some accessorizing.

Beautiful, but too small for me.
I ordered this in Mediterrean Blue, which is actually a turquoise. I love the color, and the knit; however, it was much too small. I ordered a Petite Medium, which I have worn in other Appleseeds clothes. Way too small! And too short for my 5'3" 82 year old figure. I sent it back, and have ordered a Misses Large, based on the fitting measurements in the catalog. If it is too big, I will have it taken in. If not possible, I will send it back. Let's see what happens.

Length to long
The overall fit of this dress was perfect. But the length was to long for my 5ft 5" height. I liked the dress well enough that I returned it for a petite.
