    I want a dozen more.

    I now own this dress in every color. I love the navy/black fabric best--one person said "It's like a windbreaker" of the fabric. I've received a hundred compliments on this dress in every iteration (except the white, which I haven't worn yet). It's a perfect piece for everyday wear and it always looks polished and smart.

    Great dress - runs small

    I love the dress, but unfortunately I need to return it. It runs too small through the bust. I recommend it only to those with a small bustline.

    Shirt dress

    I bought black and love it. So ordered navy and the olive. The olive is not a good color for me so am returning. The quality is fabric is excellent.

    Classy and cool

    I am a new Mersea shopper. I’d bought one other item when I decided to buy the Essential Collar Shirt Dress. I was so happy with it when it came. It is a substantial cotton dress with fine detailing that gives a very elevated look. A self-belt comes with but I’ve been wearing it without the belt.

    A Piece To Build Upon

    In my first effort to build a capsule wardrobe, I chose The Essential Collar Shirt Dress as the core piece to build upon. I am pleased with the quality and the attention to detail on the collar and cuffs. There is also the cutest little loop and charming pleated detail on the back. I am looking forward to styling it for all seasons.
