Nice dress - will wear with some heels. Sleeves far too long for me (am 5ft 4) and you have to ruche the dress yourself, but it's lovely and a good price.

Beautiful green colour and as usual for Baukjen clothes, extremely comfortable. I wear it during the day with the coco chambray shirt tied at the waist. Works best with a heel on me (I'm 5"4).

beautiful lavender colour and i just fell in love with the dress when i first opened the parcel. Fit was perfect.

Lovely dress and so useful - can dress up or down, and it doesn't crease.I have this in the blue which is a thicker fabric, I've worn it loads and it still looks great.The bright orange is a fabulous colour, but the material is a lot flimsier than the blue version.

It comes up too small and very figure hugging. Not suitably cut for larger sizes.

This dress it's perfect for a day and night. I have worn for Sunday family diner:)

I have ordered the ruched dress in the past and loved it. Sadly the fit has changed and the rushing is very wide and baggy at the hem of the dress, needed to be closer fitting here. Also the melange fabric is very stiff and suspect incredibly hot, not the soft Jersey if the version I had in khaki previously. Really disappointed.

Beautiful colour . Have worn this dressed up with jewellery and high heels , also with leather jacket & converse for school run . So versatile . Great quality so I have it in black also . Quality product . Would love it in navy blue !!

Beautiful quality jersey dress. Very sexy look and feel. Love the way it can be adjusted to different lengths. Although does tend to rise up as the evening goes on. \nThe only downside was the care label which was sewn into the seam of the dress. It was very scratchy and I had to remove it and then see the dress again. Would make more sense to have an easily detachable label.

I really like this and have no ordered it in another colour. Can be worn as a dress or a top with leggings or skinny jeans. I found the sizing to be good.

7th January 2014

I cant stop wearing my ruched dress. The fit is true to size and the quality is fantastic. The service I received was excellent, keep up the good work. Just please keep the sales coming, an excuse to buy another!

Beautiful prepared to get lots of male attention.

If at first you thought '£90? For a jersey dress?' Don't be fooled. These are thick jersey dresses unlike what you will find on the high street and the colour is beautifully rich. I'm a size 10 and 5ft 2in, and the dress was quite long on me. You can adjust the ruching to an extent, but have to watch that you don't add too much extra volume over the hips. I'd also advise that the dress is very unforgiving of any lumps and bumps. If you have even the slightest bit of extra weight across your abdomen, hips or thighs it will show so I'd recommend some control wear under the dress.

I can't rate this item as I was never sent it. Instead I was sent another black dress that has been swiftly sent back.

19th December 2013

I have recommended this to Friends as it's such a comfortable, stylish dress, perfect for work

19th December 2013

Super dress, elegant but so easy to wear during the day. Very flattering. I'm a size 8 and it's a true size 8. It can also be ruched (and stays so) to desired length on the day. The fabric isn't doubled but this doesn't really matter with this dress and is reflected in the price. I have bought in the Ink, Black and Grey (which isn't too light) and all are fab.

19th December 2013

Suit any age as very stylish and easy to wear. Fit is true to size and very comfortable. Wear with heels or boots - dress up or down it always looks good.

Inspired by the new Autumn colours I've purchased this dress in Ink and Dark Grey Melange. I normally wear a UK size 8 in Baukjen and found the 8 in this style dress fitted just right. This dress is so comfortable, you can almost forget you're wearing it. The fabric is single layered, so if you're hoping for the dress to smooth and contour your lumps and bumps, then you will be disappointed unless you wear it with control underwear. You have to be careful which tights/leggins you wear under it as the seams around the waistband show right through. Very lacy knickers will also leave a visible panty line. On the plus side, the ruching on the skirt enables you to wear this at a longer length in the office, or hitch it up shorter for evenings out, making it a great transitional item. At 5' 6" tall this dress is the perfect length for me. Also the sleeves are not ridiculously skin tight as they are on the Essential Extra Long T. You can put this dress on right after slathering your arms with body lotion, and you don't have to battle the clinging fabric to wrench the sleeves over your arm. Some might say that the sleeves are a little loose, but I find it perfect for work, where I don't want to be wearing a dress that's like a second skin. I will also be ordering this in Berry Melange. Great work Baukjen.

Perfect dress, as always!
11th June 2013

I have now purchased 6 IO/Baujken dresses over the past 2 years, and have always been very happy with them. They wash well, wear well, fit well and are perfect for work and into the evening. I always get compliments and several of my friends now purchase them too. The fabrics seem to differ for each dress and colour, and this one isn't as soft as some of the others, and the fabric is a bit thinner, but still looks good. The colour is a kind of smokey blue melange - difficult to describe but a nice summer colour. I wear it, as with all the others, with bare legs and nude heels. I'm 5'9.5" and a size 8 but I usually size down to a 6 in these dresses. Length and fit is then perfect.

Love it! love it! Love it! Any chance of a red one AW13?

Love this dress!
5th May 2013

I bought a variation on this dress (with asymetrical neckline) in grey last summer and I've had loads of wear out of it. I was given the black and the green in this style as a birthday present and can't wait to wear them. I love the versatility of these dresses, they can be dressed up or down and all my IO/Baukjen dresses are fail-safe, I know I can put them on and look and feel great, no matter what the occasion. Tip: Wear the dresses bare legged, as I wore my grey one with tights last week and it created a little friction and I had to keep tugging the dress down. Or wear with a belt when you wear tights!

Ruched Jersey Dress
30th April 2013

I have several of these dresses and will probably acquire more as new colours are launched! This dress works as a long top with jeans or leggings or a dress which can be worn either with opaque tights in the winter or bare legs in the summer. Travels really well and washes without any need for ironing. Comes up big so for the best effect order a size down. Perfect!

Not for me
24th April 2013

This may be a good dress for others, but not for me. The ruches do not quite hold up, and keep slipping down esp in the front. The material is nice- soft and thin for the summer.

Fab fitting dress - even for little old me!
19th March 2013

This is a truly fabulous little black dress. Being only 5'1" I struggle with finding dresses that are short enough - with the ruching, this one was the perfect fit. I bought this dress (fairly last minute and it came well in time and packaged in the usual Baukjen loveliness) because I had a 'smart casual' function to go and was unsure what to wear. Catering for both I wore the dress with a smart set of accessories and had a back up set of more casual ones in my bag - the ideal outfit to dress up or down. Thank you once again Baukjen for a beautiful dress with unbeatable service.

22nd February 2013

Have this dress in Blue Melange (which I love), so ordered it in Dusted Khaki (same size 8). However, when it arrived it was 2 inches bigger than the blue version and hung like a pair of curtains. Very disappointing.The designs are lovely, but I really feel that quality inconsistencies in size/length let the brand down and are a really disaster when buying mail order and you expect parity across sizes/designs.

So Comfy & Cute
6th February 2013

Great purchase - super cute and comfy. Can be dressed up for winter with boots and tights, then nice for spring with sneaks!

Flattering and versatile
10th January 2013

I wore this dress in blue melange over Christmas, and dressed it up with heels. I also wear it with a jumper and trainers and it looks great. Comfortable, flattering and very versatile.

Fantastic forever dress!
4th January 2013

Love this dress! Great shape, fit & super comfy! Will wear this dressed down with boots & then dressed up with heels.

I must say I am impressed
10th December 2012

I am 5.9 and it fits perfectly. Most importantly it is very comfortable.

Amazing dress!!
13th November 2012

Love this dress - bought it in blue melange also! Fits perfectly - so flattering and already so many comments!!

I'm so glad I bought this, its going to be a real staple in my wardrobe. Great thick fabric, very stretchy, adjustable to whatever length you need by ruching it more or less. It works with a jacket or cardi for day, pulled down for a longer length, and also with heels plus statement necklace for night. Five stars!

28th September 2012

An amazing dress! I chose a green one in size 8, and it's just what I expected - nice fit, good quality, great colour.

3rd September 2012

This is a gorgeous dress that can be accessorised up or down. I'm between a size 8 and 10 and gave all the usual lumps and bumps so was a little nervous of this dress, but it really is flattering. The gathered material hides a multitude of sins. My husband also gives it a thumbs up! Delivered with the usual care and quality.
