    I haven't worn it out yet due to it just arriving today but I tried it in and love it. It's roomy and comfy and flattering. This and the dinosaur one which I also bought will be perfect for work (I work in a museum and library) I'm super happy and want to buy more!

    Gorgeous dress at an awesome Black Friday price, but the disparity between the sizing is crazy – I ordered a 12 and 14 to try on. The 14 was waaaay to big and baggy around the top, and the 12 was extremely tight around the waist – more like the difference between a 10 and 16. I’m gutted because the design, style and material (and even buttons!) on this dress are beautiful and it’s a great price.

    Love this dress! The bust darts are a work of art, and combined with the tie that lets me cinch in a place that is very flattering to my size 18 shape, I feel great in it. The print is also fabulous!

    I love this dress! The spines on the books even have titles on them. I wore it to work and received so many compliments. Naturally I responded with a, “Thank you! It has pockets!”

    As usual the sizing at Joanie a little consistent. To overcome this I order two sizes and take advantage of their free returns.

    I love this dress! The pattern is so cute and I always get compliments. It's really comfortable and looks great with black tights and flats or boots. My favourite dress right now!

    The sizes a quite generous (yay!), so I do recommend double checking the size guide before ordering, as you may need a smaller size than you expect.

    I usually can’t go near button up dresses because of my big bust but this one fits well in that area and everywhere else. It’s such a pretty print as well. Please do more Barbara dresses, I will buy all of them!

    This dress is fantastic! It’s light weight without being flyaway, is lined in the top half and the arms are big enough for my bingo wings! I had to size down because it comes up so big but it still comes a bit low/has plenty of room in the chest (I’ve had to add a small stitch because I’m only 5’2 and wear it to work). I wear it with black tights, boots and a cardigan but it will transition well for spring and autumn too. I’ve had this for a couple of months now and it washes well and still looks great - I love it!
