I love this dress. I read the reviews and ordered down from my normal large in PUG to a medium and it fits great. There is a lot of extra room in the chest area but it doesn't look bad with the way it is cut. I am a 36 bust 30 waist. There is still a bit of extra room in the waist but not enough that I could go down another size. I am so happy I bought this just before winter as it will be perfect in the cooler months. I wear mine with a petticoat. And I am only 5 feet tall but the dress still looks great and the length isn't to overkill like I found the jenny skirts are on shorter people. I have had so many compliments on this dress. Elegant, beautiful. I adore this dress. Absolutely perfect. I wish they would make a few more patterned ones in this style. (Posted on 11/4/2014)

When I received this dress, I was a little upset that the sleeves were so tight, however, once I put it on the arms stretched and the dress felt so comfortable. It is such a pretty dress and I love the skulls on the sleeves. I went one size down because I read the reviews and it fit perfect. This is my 3rd PUG dress and I am truly satisfied with the style, material and comfort of your dresses. (Posted on 9/24/2014)

I love the print! I think the bust runs big but maybe that's because I'm a 36b. My measurements are B: 36 W:27 H: 37. I went with the small. I can't wait for the colder weather to wear this out. The little skulls on the sleeves set this dress apart from all the others. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

This dress is amazing!
After falling in love with this dress online and much umming and ahhing I finally go it and let me tell you, Mr Postman was my favourite person that day!
The dress is such and elegant design and the fit is so exquisite, it's an instant confidence boost just putting it on. I got a size large and although it fit a little snug around my arms I wouldn't trade it for the world!
At first glance the dress is unmistakeably beautiful but when you look closer and pay attention to the small detail you will be blown away, from the piping on the collar down to the fun little skull buttons, the Deadly Dames haunted Housewife dress is a favourite for me and a wardrobe must for any pin up collection.

After owning the black haunted housewife it really was a no brained to purchase this print also. When it arrived I gasped! The fabric is just so beautiful! The dress fits true to size like my other size L dress. My waist is around a 35 at the moment and bust a 42 and it fits perfectly. It's a great dress for work, the skully buttons at the sleeves are awesome but subtle enough to wear in the office. I ALWAYS get compliments when I wear this dress and its so comfortable too!

Highly recommend you get yourself a haunted housewife! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I absolutely adore this dress. Like everyone else, I ordered a size down; I ordered a medium whereas I usually fit a large. I am 5'2", 38-29-36. When I put it on it was love at first sight and of course I received compliments all evening! I might shorten it eventually but, as is usual with PUG, I felt like a million bucks.

This dress is so flattering and well-made. The print got so many compliments when I wore it! And the skull buttons on the sleeves are an excellent touch! Runs a little bigger than other DD dresses I have. Size down if between sizes! Made in the USA! Love Deadly Dames!! (Posted on 6/2/2014)

i have loved all the PUG dresses i have bought so far, but this one surpasses even the Birdie. The colours and pattern are beautiful and unique, and the fit on this dress is the best of any style for me. The amount of stretch is just right, i usually need an XL for my waist,and then the top will be a bit open or low, but this one in L is a perfect fit for me. i am 39-33-40.
i got complements on this dress all day, and my friend told me it was totally " me" , lol.
she was the only one who noticed rhe skull cuff links. A touch of goth, victorian print and 50's style, the best of 3 worlds... love this dress to pieces. i wish more PUG dresses fit me this perfectly.
oh, the colours are slightly less vibrant than in the picture, and more pink roses than i realized, but its perfect. (Posted on 5/23/2014)

I've always been a rose fan so when Michelline posted a poll her FB page a while back asking which rose print to make production, I chose this one, and I'm so glad this particular print won!

It really is a stunning dress and as expected, beautifully made. I do agree with most of the reviews thus far, in that this particular style runs large. I usually wear a med in PUG/DD etc but I was able to size down to a small for this (for reference, my measurements are 36" bust, 28" waist). I didn't feel like the sleeves were tight at all and there was no excess fabric at the bust and shoulders for me. Usually, this is the problem areas for me as I also have a shortish torso, and I would have to have the shoulders taken up. Not for the rose HH dress - it fits like a dream! Really love it.

I might have to get the Courtesan swing version as well ;)

Thanks PUG! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I adore the red rose Victorian print but was never convinced of wearing it all over a Haunted Housewife dress until I saw a girl on a Facebook page wearing it - she completely sold it to me! I was obsessed and needed it and glad I got one before they completely sell out.

The fabric isn't as shiney as it appears on the product page, which I am happy about. Also, after much research on the size reviews, I sized down from my usual Medium to a Small and it fits perfectly. I own the red HH in a Medium, so the red rose ones may be cut a bit bigger. My upper measurements are 36C bust / 28" waist.

All in all, what a gorgeous dress. It is eye-catching and garners compliments from men, women and children...seriously!

Also, I puchased this dress from the Foxy Shoppe, a PUG stockist in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The owner, Pamela, was an absolute doll to do business with. So since I did not purchase this straight from PUG, the 5-star in the service category is for the Foxy Shoppe :) (Posted on 12/4/2013)

This dress is amazing. I received so many compliments when I wore it. It looks beautiful with a petticoat underneath. I agree with the other reviewers that the dress runs larger than some other dresses I have ordered. I ordered one size down from my regular size I wear on Pin-up Girl and the dress fit perfectly.

Im a 35-30-37 and a small fits me like a dream. I think it needs a petticoat to help fill out the skirt a bit but i've already ordered one! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

After a substantial clothes crush on the Red Rose HH I finally couldn't resist any more. I always liked the look of the HH, but was concerned that the deep V-neck wouldn't work on my body shape. Feedback from fans on fb convinced me to take the plunge (ahem) anyway & I am so pleased I did! As other reviewers yes she does run a little large but better than running small. I have a 36" bust with a good push-up bra & 29" waist so I went for M but S could have been OK. Even the belt could use another grommet or 2 much to my surprise, but that is about all the alteration I will get done as I like a more relaxed fit.

This dress has a great quality of medium-weight fabric and excellent finish on the details. The print is absolutely divine with variations in tones of rich red, pink & green in the floral pattern. The white piping & skulls provide great contrast & a funky edge. The Aussie Summer weather is too hot to wear her right now but I cannot wait for the first really cool evening to take her out!

I ordered this dress in a Medium, It is a little bit big, but I don't mind it a little loose. I would agree you could size down the dress for a better fit. Great quality and fabric. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I wanted the black or red dresses but they both sold out immediatly, as soon as the website emailed me that they were in stock. So I decided this must be a nice dress and I got the print. I don't like many prints. But when I got this and put it on I felt very happy and the print is growing on me. The dress fits very nice. I have 40dd breasts and the xl is very roomy for me. I didn't have to upzip the zipper on the side even. I am approximatly 41 31 39ish. XL works great. It slipped right over my head. It is so comfortable. The material and quality of the dress is top rate. It is refreshing to find quality clothing. I even wore this to the office and I think it worked out fine. I just flipped the cuffs on the sleves down to hide the skull buttons. Easy fix there. I will probably try to get the black and red dress of this some time in the future. I am 5 8 and you can see how the dress falls. It was longer then I thought it would be but I am not really concerned about that. I think if you are iffy about the dress, you will decide you like it once you try it. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I stalked the site for this dress when I saw a preview photo for it on facebook. It did not disappoint once I finally got it. The print is gorgeous. I gasped when I pulled it out of the bag. Fit is on the larger end. I'm a solid medium in most of the other dresses I have (Heidi, Lana, Grace, Film Noir-just to name a few) and this this I had to exchange for a small as the medium was too big. Even in the size down I didn't feel like the sleeves or waist were too tight. The only "issue" I had was the top gaping a little when I sat down. But I did wear it to work and sit pretty much all day in a fairly conservative workplace. Next time I plan to just pin it together to I don''t have to adjust all day long. Other than that, dress is divine! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Usually I'm too lazy to write a review, but this dress is so amazing that I will make an exception.

This might have become my favorite PUG dress (the honorable title previously held by the Heidi in Cherry print). I was a little concerned that the bust would be too big and gaping, as I am not so well endowed in that area but the fit is perfect throughout. The fabric is gorgeous, not as shiny as I had imagined based on the photos, which is a positive for me since I plan to wear this to work. The fabric is medium weight and doesn't seem like it would wrinkle too easily. Overall, perfection. If this dress came in other prints (leopard!!) I'm fairly certain I would get them all, so perhaps it's better for my wallet that they don't.

I am 5'2 (and a half!), 33-24-36 and ordered the XS. The skirt hits right below the knee. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
This is the best of the Haunted Housewife dresses, in my opinion. Review by Bonnie

I just got this dress in a medium, and tried it on today. Seriously, the photos (for once) actually under-emphasize how beautiful this print is! It's the best Haunted Housewife dress I've purchased yet (I also have had both of the other ones, but this one takes the cake!).

The top part is still a little roomy, even after I ordered a size down (I originally bought a large, but it was too big surprisingly!). The hem is longer, and the sleeves seem a tad shorter than the older version, which is really nice! In my opinion, this dress should be ordered a size lower than you're used to, because it needs to be a snug fit. But, that's my two cents. :)

My measurements are 36D/30.5/41.
