I've worn my on several occasions always receiving compliments. It's truly a dress that makes men gentlemen - and the fabulous female wearing it will surely feel like a queen.
I know that this dress is labeled Dry Clean only, but I actually had to wash it in the washing machine in low temperature, because I spilled red wine on it at my mom's 60th birthday and dry cleaning is ridiculously expensive here in Finland (30€/35$ per dress). I was scared that now I've ruined my favourite dress, but it worked out fine. Not only did I miraculously manage to get rid of the wine stains, the dress was perfectly ok. White was still white (I was afraid it might become pink) and the roses are as vibrant as previously.
So basically cotton sateen generally washes well in the washing machine, but I still wish PUG had more washing machine friendly dresses, since it's ridiculously expensive to have dresses dry cleaned where I live. I'm also such a dress addict that I have more than 30 50's-60's dresses in my wardrobe and just purchased two more Jayne dresses from PUG.
I also have Jenny Snow White and black and white Amanda dress (both in M), but I'm not going to take a risk by washing them in the washing machine. Jenny might do with a handwash since it doesn't have risky colors (but has boning so washing machine is a no-no) but for Amanda I guess I'll just need to not spill anything on it. Definitely not red wine :D

I am a shorty - only 5'2". So for any other short gals out there, keep in mind that this dress WILL be a little longer on you than shown in the picture. If you are okay with this, so much the better! Some of us may need to get the bottom altered slightly, but I think a good pair of pumps can do the trick. :)
The ONLY reason my rating for the dress went down is that the customs/shipping on this was absolutely BRUTAL. I live in Canada and had to pay a $30 customs fee on top of my regular shipping! Definitely a little disappointing.

I think this dress is perfect for every day (I like it with a pair of ballerinas) as well as for weddings and parties if you wear it with heels and a petticoat . A strange thing however : I ordered the same size every time, but the blue one is a little smaller on the waist, almost too tight. And the satin red one is longer - the "summer" ones were just below the knees, which was perfect.
I like the summer cotton fabric more than the satin one, but they're both beautiful.
The matching belts add an elegant final touch to this classy dress.
I strongly recommend the Birdie if you can't decide which dress you want to buy.

I also have worn this to a couple parties, some people think I look like a Stepford wife, and I don't know how to take that other than I look classy?... But everyone loves this dress, especially me. The belt is the perfect accessory for this dress and I mean with how beautiful this dress is, I don't know if I would wear more than that belt to accessorize. Definitely can wear with or without a petticoat; I live in Georgia, so summers and petticoats aren't really a thing. I wear this dress with a pair of red patent leather heels and it is perfect!

This dress fits a little smaller than the long sleeve blue/yellow birdie that I got.
Again, I got a small. I measure 37 (32H), 25 to 26, 36. I am 5'6

I am 5'2", 32dd-27-39 and I got a size small. The waist is snug but comfortable enough, plenty of room for the Girls and the length is perfect, a couple of inches below the knee.The fabric has slight stretch to it and the print is exquisite, fresh and bright. And I really like the shiny, juicy red belt.
You will be noticed in this dress - my husband's jaw dropped when he saw me in it. Actually, it dropped before that, right when he saw the fabric: it is that beautiful. :)

As for fit, I find it to be a teeny bit smaller in the bust than my other Birdies, but still quite bust-friendly overall. My measurements are 41-27-37 and I have it in my normal PUG size, which is Small.

I was lost and bought it strait away...
Ever since we have been looking for the origins of this dress and now we have found it!
The fabric is stunning! It feels nice and soft, but is strong and the colours do not blend or bleach down.
Summer in Europe is not over yet, so I still have many occassions to wear it.
Made a deal with my friend to save up extra cash to place an order together because we absolutely adore your dresses!
