Fine Little Mama.


Late afternoon, when the sun hits the water at a slant. You’re lingering over a glass of Le Tre Sorelle’s house white and the freshest mussels you’ve ever tasted.

A man, nearby, vying for your attention.

“I love your dress,” he whispers into your ear.

His Italian accent, intriguing. His cadence slides and spills, leaving you off balance, oddly excited.

Maybe it’s the sun. You imagine things.

Soft skin under your wrist. Valleys of skin between fingers. Places behind your ear. Your eyelash touching his throat.

Never mind. You saunter off, imagining how the sway of your cotton dress looks in the Italian autumn sun (of course, he’s watching).

Then a phrase, floating like a wisp, something your niece said last week: YOLO.

Melilla Dress (No. 5003). Pure soft cotton. Fully lined. Crossover V-neck bodice with elastic smocked waistband. Gathered waist gore skirt. Falls to the lower calf. Built for dancing on the edge. Made in India.

Had to return
I'm 5'8 and the gathering that should have been around my waist was on my chest. If you are very short waisted this might hit you in the right spot. In addition to that the fabric placement was different than pictured and I had huge horizontal stripes across my hips. I'm a size Small and I looked swallowed up in fabric. The print, color and fabric were nice, but everything else was wrong.

This dress just arrived today. I tried it on immediately. How does Peterman do it? It's lined, it's soft, it fits beautifully. It's made like my seamstress mom would have done it. Can't praise it more highly. And the colors!

Classy, Creative, Unique
The dress just arrived & I can't wait to wear it. The lining is a blessing the armhole isn't too deep to show my bra it's so feminine & flattering. The shoulders & vee-neck add some width to my slightly narrow shoulders. I think the whole look is creative/classy without being over the top. I'm a senior citizen so I have to be careful about wearing certain pieces. This dress suits many ages & won't go out of style anytime soon. It's a great investment.

Beautiful, flirty, comfy dress
Like the dress and the full lining is a plus. The armholes are small (for American women) so I had to adapt with a bit of elastic under the arm but otherwise, its a keeper. An easy fix for someone who sews or has a tailor on speed dial. It will be my travelling dress.
