Bella Coola Print Knit Short Sleeve Dress is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft! This dress is so soft and I don't even need a slip. I wish it could have been cheaper though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fitting lovely dress I had purchased the tunic version earlier in a different color and liked it so much I decided to try the dress. I am so glad I did! The fit is just right for me, it's so comfortable and graceful. I feel that it can go quite casual and could also be dressed up with accessories for a less casual event. I'm very happy with it and may even purchase it again in a different color, but I do love the coral color I purchased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress Sizing has Changed I used to order this dress in a Large (34-36). Now, with the new sizing, I need to order XL. However, the dress is made with good fabric and well constructed. It is a bit too long, so I need to shorten it 3" (I am 5'8"). I will order it again for fall with 3/4 sleeves - I hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect length dress This dress is the perfect length! Below the knee without becoming a midi. It is impossible to find a dress this length! Thank you for making it. I'm looking for it in your fall catalog. An added bonus is that the fabric is pretty, stretchy and feels as comfortable as a nightgown while looking stylish. The proportions are good so the length looks appropriate.

BEST ANSWER: machine
How would you describe the difference between the coral floral and the tropical print?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The coral floral is much more pink, while the tropical print is a mix of pink, orange and green - I tend to think of it as more orange, with some green, and don't really notice the pink.
Please be more specific about what is meant by " bust friendly". Is it just that there is a seam under the bust, or is there extra material in the bust that might be baggy on smaller women? I loved the old Bella Coola, but I am afraid to buy the new one because it sounds as though it will no longer fit well. Could someone please post a more detailed comparison of the fit, especially the all-too-important "friendly" bust? Thanks! :)
A shopper on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have an old Bella Coola and a new one. The difference for me is that the new one is considerably tighter in the bust and waist area. I had to go up a size.
I purchased a bella coola dress last year. When you changed the fitting, did you enlarge the bust?
TerriE on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A bit more fitted and a lot more bust-friendly.
Is the dark color in the Abstract Floral print black or navy?
Archies Mon on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is definitely a navy; absolutely lovely, casual dress. I am very pleased with the fit and have both this color and the black and white print.
Does this dress on this page have ties in the back for good adjustment?
L P on Jun 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this dress does not have ties. If you get the correct size it is very comfortable and will hug your waist.
What about shrinkage?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have at least six of these dresses, none of them have shown any shrinkage. They come out of the dryer wrinkle free.
Do you need to wear a slip with this, I.e., does the outline of your legs show through in the "right" light? Thanks!
Patricia G on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While I always wear a half slip with skirts/dresses...it makes them hang and flow better...I think you can get by without one with this dress fabric. I have two of these dresses...the black floral is def. OK for no slip. The lighter color one...white with blue flowers...is OK though very bright light backlighting you might make your legs visible. In most situations, I think you could get by.
I loved the 46" length of the dresses I bought last year. And the bust fit was perfect! Now I want to order a new color, but am afraid I won t like the fit. Is the bust smaller?
Kay B on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For me, both the bust and the midsection of the dress were smaller in this year's version. Last year's Medium still fits beautifully, but I needed a Large in this year's version to get the same fit.
Mad hatter, Which print goes well with Jade jewelry?
Carlene G on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, recently wore this dress in Hawaii with turquoise/jade colored necklace and it went great. Aqua/turq. background with lots of olive and black sprinkled around should work fine with jade... Peggy, Washington
I own 2 Bella Coola dresses purchased over 1 year ago and the waist seam is above the waist (as in empire styling). Does the "new fit" mean the waist seam was lowered? It appears that way in the photos.
Teresa A on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the waist is lower this year, but it is not a problem for me. I get the styles with lots of pattern in the fabric and you don't even notice the difference because the styling is so forgiving.
For 5'6 or 5'7 would this be about mid calf?
Annette S on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lengths: Misses 43"; Petite 41"; Plus 44"
why is this not adding to my shopping bag?
deborah b on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think this is a systems problem at Sahalie. I have had the same problem and wound up placing my order by phone.

return policy Do you have free shipping on returns?
