Women's Bella Coola Dress 4.3 5 280 280
Stitching was very, very poor! I was disappointed with the overall quality of the dress. The stitching was very noticeably loose on the bodice - something that should never be an issue on a dress of this price. I returned the item. July 30, 2015
Boxy feeling As much as I wanted to like this dress, it felt boxy and unflattering. The fabric, however, felt wonderful! The pattern was too busy for my taste and I felt like I should be about 60 years old and on my way to church. (I am 28). It might fit better on a different personality. July 28, 2015
Online/Catalog photos not actual color! While the fabric texture and style of the dress were what I expected and met my requirements, the color of the actual fabric (Paisley) was totally and completely different than both the online and the catalog photos. It was much more orange/coral in person whereas it appeared in the pictures to be a clear red/cranberry or even running towards purple print. Because they were completely different shades, colors, and tones of what I was looking for to match my wardrobe and what i was ordering, I needed to return it. I am hesitant to trust the colors as depicted in sites and catalogs as a result of this experience. July 24, 2015
Ideal Summer Dress This is my "go to" summer dress--perfect for casual work attire or for many summer activities. The fabric is smooth, soft, and stretchy, and the dress washes (I use delicate cycle) beautifully. It has a lovely drape and flow, I very much appreciate that it is opaque, so no slip needed on a warm summer day. It is as fast and easy way to look great and stay put together all day. I have now purchased two and will look for more as they go on sale. July 23, 2015
Gives a hippy, dumpy look. This dress was anything but flattering - flowing over the hips it looked hippopotamus like (I am an 8-10). Print could have been more interesting. Dress got returned! July 22, 2015
Love This Dress I love the way this dress fits and feels. I now have it in four different colors. The stretchy fabric is so comfy...and nice and cool on hot summer days or add a sweater or wrap for cooler days. It's so easy to care for...just machine wash and dry and hang in your closet! July 21, 2015
Wonderful spring/summer dress The fabric is wonderful! The dress is not clingy, the fit and style is very flattering. May be a little long on some women. I am 5'8", 200 lbs, wear a 14/16 usually and the XL fits like a dream. It comes to about 2 inches below my knee. July 16, 2015
Comfotable Summer Dress. Wonderful dress very comfortable and looks great on! I am 5 3" and 120lbs the petite small was a great fit. July 13, 2015

Do you have a suggestion as to what color cardigan to wear with Paisley Bella Coola Dress?
Pat C on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think the best choices for a cardigan to complement the Paisley Bella Coola Dress would be: pale blue, teal or coral-rose. (The colors appear a bit lighter in the online photo.) There is a hint of yellow in the pattern, but I do not believe that color would best complement this lovely dress. I often opt to wear a jean jacket with the dress, and I accessorize with turquoise jewelry and boots. I've received many compliments. :)
How does this dress fit with a DDD bust?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm DD myself, it may be a little tight.
Where can I find the 3/4 sleeve length for the dress? It was mentioned in someone's comment.
A shopper on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought one a few years ago, but haven't seen it offered this year.
I usually wear a 6/8. Does this dress run small or large? Not sure whether to order a S or M.
Karen L on Mar 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I typically wear a 10, sometimes an 8. I'm 5'8" and 150#. A Medium fit me quite snugly, and I likely would have kept it as I prefer things fitted, but didn't think the pattern did much for me. As other reviews noted, this short sleeve version runs smaller and shorter than the 3/4 length sleeve versions. (2" in width, approx 3" in length) I had ordered both sleeve versions in M and kept only the 3/4 length due to fabric color and pattern preference.
Does the dress length shrink in the wash?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this dress in a petite length and have been extremely satisfied with it...in every way. It hasn't shrunk anywhere and I've worn it (and washed it) many times. It's easy to dress up or down and is so very comfortable. I am planning on purchasing another in a different print. There is no higher praise than that, is there? Edie Mergler, Bloomsburg, PA
Which Bella Coola cardigan bestgoes with the coral dress? Mango? Oatmeal? Olive? Do they all match?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I went with oatmeal
Would a coral sweater work with the tropical print?
Carol R on Mar 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: i have this dress in the bluish color print...i wear a light turquoise shrug with it but i think coral would look great......might look for a coral one myself....lucy
Would the Aruba blue go-with-the-flow wrap match the paisley Bella Coola dress, or would another color look Better?
Mary S on Apr 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have every one of these dresses and have found any wrap, sweater (pullover and cardigan), shirts worn over the dress and even shirts UNDER the dress work. This dress crosses over into every season. The most versatile and flattering dress I have. That's why I have 4 of them and am going to order the new color!
would this dress work for a trip where I have to do sink washing, does it dry quickly, at least overnight?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I did sink wash this dress one time when I was staying in a hotel. I hung it up overnight near the air conditioning vent so there was lots of air movement, and it was dry in the morning. I think how well the dress dries overnight will depend on the weather, how humid or dry the air is. (Don't hang it on the ceiling sprinkler in the hotel room, or it will end up very wet!)
Is the dress washable?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have several Bella Coola dresses and, yes, they are washable. I usually hand to dry, but if you use a gentle drying cycle I would think they would be ok.
I am not quite 5' tall. Will the petite be too long?
A shopper on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. I am five feet one and it was tea length on me. I didn't like that length so I hemmed it to just under the knee and I like it much better. Showing more leg makes a short person look taller. I feel and look much better at that length.
does the dress have pockets? if yes, what type, side seam
A shopper on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No pockets on this dress. It is very comfortable and flattering. I received lots of compliments.
It appears to have a kind of divided top area....how does it look on substantial bosoms?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm a 34B, petite. It gave me a nice full shape on top. I bought it for my daughters wedding (July outside country wedding). First dress I ordered and never looked for another dress. Fabric was so soft and not thin but not heavy and does not wrinkle. Literally carried it in a plastic bag to show to friends before the wedding, never a wrinkle. I love a dress you can put on and just feel and look good in!
Does this dress have a zipper or is a pull over loose fit?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No zipper. It's a pullover. Very comfortable and fits well even without the zip?
which shoes look best with the paisley dress?
A shopper on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought this dress for my wife and she loves it. I showed her this question and she answered and I quote "Red!"
Is there ample bust room? I take a 34 DD and fitted seams sometimes fall short in the bust for me.
Lady Di on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would be a bit wary if I were you. I am a 34B, and ordered the Extra Small in this dress. It fits nicely; is comfortable in the bust. But for someone who is 34DD, the seams probably would be too short.
there are 4 color choices and 5 pictures, what color is the dress shown with the model in the cowboy hat?
A shopper on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe mine is "Paisley"; bought it last year so can't be sure. Mine looked orchid/turq/hot pink in the catalogue so have worn it with a deep(hot) pink accessory. After cataract surgery, I realized that colors are actually turq. & brick red!! I still get compliments but don't pair it with the hot pink anymore!
What percentage of the fabric is cotton?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 56% cotton; 38% modal; 6% spandex
What size to order if I wear a 10 petite?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would say the Medium, but just remember it will be Long, especially if you are a petite. When in doubt, I order two sizes and return one. Good Luck!
Is there a charge for returns?
A shopper on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is no charge for returns, but you have to pay shipping. btw, the dress is awesome, but I don't have the body for it.
Are the length measurements of the Bella Coola dresses from the shoulder or the back of the neck?
Barbara D on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The measurments are taken from the high point of the shoulder.
