I love cashmere as I cannot wear regular wool (too itchy) and I loved this dress. It's incredibly soft, one of the softest cashmere dresses I've ever had. I bought the oatmeal colour and it is lovely. The ruffle at the hem makes it different from other dresses I have. The reason I deduced a star from my rating is that the style is very boxy, I am a normal UK size 12 but had to order an extra small in this style as the S was huge on me. That doesn't make sense. But I will keep it as the XS is lovely and it's hard to find cashmere in such a lovely, pale colour.
