    Not suitable for Africa – fabrics too hot and excess fabric on a plus size will be awful…..ever worn georgette in 38 degrees C? (100F) – its like wearing a garbage bag. Black? Srsly?

    So cute. So inappropriate for the American South.

    Me, I love that Mrs Roper realness. It’s hot and humid, and I want big floofy dresses made of cotton and linen.

    One question – why do all the plus sizes only go up to a 52 instead of a 60, which is the largest size you have on your sizing sheet. Many of us still have to size up beyond a 52 in order for any of these to fit. It would be nice to not have to do that.

      I’ve wondered that myself Cascadia. It’s a real shame they do stop at 52 :(

    Not sure how I feel about the whole gathered sleeve thing. I can see how it might work in some fabrics, but it just looks too over-the-top for me. But I like everything else. I don’t know if it’s stuff I’d wear, but I like the style. I really like the long cardigan. Very reminiscent of Middle Eastern coats and dresses. You could use some gorgeous middle-eastern fabrics and beautiful trims on it and really make it a showpiece.

    I love these fabric choices, I think the gathered sleeve dress/blouse is really interesting, and I rather enjoy this collection as a whole. Most of all I have to say the model is absolutely gorgeous and I hope that you use her again for future collections :)

    These are gorgeous styles; seventies sort of shapes, & great safari looks all round :P

    Oh dear the dramatic draping sleeve is a thing of ugly wonder – not my favourite by any means. As to the rest yeah-nah I pass. The model however is very beautiful.

    Well, I really like the model. But nothing here I fancy. Oh well.

    Ugh… not liking this collection. These pieces seem to want to say “hide your body” and those garbage-bag arms on that dress and tunic? Do you offer crazy features on your regular-sized clothes too? With the exception of the sleeveless sun dress, everything in the collection looks like a tent meant to hide a woman’s curves.

    These are beautiful, especially the gathered sleeves and scalloped hem coat. Even the culottes are cute & I’m not usually a fan. Most of these I can find analogues for in the standard sizes, but any chance of re-releasing the gathered sleeve dress?
