I always wash new clothes before I wear them for the first time. The Saria Indigo Ikat Plaid dress showed up crisp and wrinkle free. I didn't have time to wash it so I went ahead and wore it to work. I love the fit of the dress and it is very comfortable to wear all day. I came home, took the dress off, and discovered my white cotton bra was now blue. And my upper body including my armpits were also stained blue. I looked like an Indigo Smurf. So my advice is, wash the dress before you wear it. I did wash the dress and have worn it a second time. :) I do love the dress and have received complements both times I wore it.
Great fit, perfect length, and a natural fabric. Does require a safety pin to keep closed.
I purchased this dress as an easy item to wear to work. I have to admit it looks a little like a robe with it's plaid pattern and wrap. I kept it anyhow because I do love the fit. I did have to pin the chest area to make certain I wasn't inappropriate at work but socially I would not care. Overall a nice dress but had I purchased in person I might have bought the polka dot version instead.
