This is acrylic and it gets super long and skinny when you wash it, then it stretches back closer to it's original shape when you put it on. This is long enough to be worn as a mini-dress. The synthetic fabric really isn't soft but it's not uncomfortable either. I get compliments on it every time I wear it.
When I saw this Live A Little Women's Brown Plaid Zip Front Dress I HAD to buy it; I already have a tan one. I was really excited yesterday to have this one arrive earlier than expected. Its open style with the zipper makes this dress a breeze to put on and take off. It feels wonderful in long walks. It is a bit short, so have that in mind, but I love the short look anyway. As the season cools, you'll love this dress with a variety of tights, of course. This plaid goes with tan, yellow, white, red and black turtlenecks and I'm looking forward to other combinations. The material is so comfortable, I'm holding onto it right now. The fabric is 40% polyester, 35% acrylic and 25% wool. I wear size 14 skirts and size 14 or Large for other dresses, and this Large dress fits me perfectly. Yesterday I rushed to the store wearing my new dress to show it off; that was a lot of fun. A former co-worker I hadn't seen in several years came up and said hello - that was a nice surprise. This afternoon I went grocery shopping again and got two compliments, the second woman asked where I'd bought the dress, so I was able to give Overstock a well-deserved plug. Expect approving looks when you wear yours!
The fit and fabric of this dress are wonderful. It is not the cheap acrylic type of knit that will "pill" easily. The cut is flattering and I love the 3/4 sleeve and the ruffled front. Very cute with tights and boots.
