Patagonia Summertime Dress - Women's
Outdoor summer weddings are beautiful—they are also hot and can get sweaty fast. The Patagonia Summertime Dress uses lightweight hemp and organic fabric so you stay cool and confident even if everyone else is melting.
- Hemp and organic cotton blend is easy on the environment and easy on your skin
- Empire waist emphasizes your bust and flatters your figure
- Back zipper lets you slip in and out of this top
- Rushing along the front center line adds texture
- Side seam pockets give you somewhere to stash your lip balm and cash.

I love the dress, but for some reason the straps on Patagonia dresses are always way too long. I'm 5'9" and 135 pounds, so you wouldn't think it would be an issue, but I'm relatively small in the bust and the straps are always falling off my shoulders. Could be easily altered by adding a third button. I bought a size six (i am 34"-36" in the chest so I usually go one size up) and it feels relatively true to size.
Go-to "summertime" dress

I bought this in mission olive on clearance from REI (~$54) and I wore it 3 times in one week!....different evening activities w/ different groups. It's comfortable and the material feels nice on my skin, the only issue and I knew this would be a problem when I bought it, is that after sitting for an hour or so it looks terribly wrinkly when I stand up. The minute I sit down in my car to go someplace I know that it's starting to wrinkle. That being said, still great for more casual summer gatherings. I just washed it and laid it out to dry and it cleaned up well and I won't have to iron it prior to my first wearing--I'm not that particular about wrinkles, but the big ones that come from sitting do bother me so I iron it after I wear it and wear it again once or twice before washing. As far as the fit, it's a bit tight through the rib cage on me and loose below that, the skirt has a slight, girly flare to it. My favorite part is the bust with the ruching detail and the seams in general.

Nice fabric, cute cut. I am thicker in the thighs so I had to return it, did't fit. Sad to send it back.
This dress is really cute but the material is a bit thin

Got this for my girlfriend and while it was super cute, the pickled ginger color was a bit on the transparent side, especially when back lit. If you're not modest about what colors you've got on underneath or are just wanting a fun lightweight dress to go to/from the beach then it'd be great. If you're a little self conscious or looking for something to wear to a sunny farmers market, I'd check into something just a little heavier
