Sunrise Shirt dress review
I love how crisp a white cotton dress can look in the summertime! But my own clumsiness usually means I avoid the hue for my own wardrobe. Still I saw this Sunrise Shirtdress with its pretty, white embroidery and decided it couldn't hurt to try. On the hanger, it looked blousey so I grabbed a 6 (one size down from what I would typically try in this style). The 6 was small in the bust so I'd say this runs true to size for a shirtdress. It has side ties and a formidable slip layer. The quality is definitely there but I am not sure about the cut. The sleeves puff but aren't so puffy that it would be annoying to layer over top. The skirt has some volume which might deter some. I am going to pass on this, even once it hits the sale because I have more flattering, less-easy-to-stain shirtdresses in my closet. Maybe I would feel differently if I tried the 8? It comes in a very spring-like sea foam green as well as black. The green might be on my radar if the 8 is a better fit.
