sunja link raglan sleeve dress (for sale)


so my sunja link dress arrived the other day, and it's really lovely, but unfortunately for me, a bit too snug in the shoulders. with a small baby to look after, i need maximum flexibility when it comes to my arms, so this dress isn't going to make sense for me. i ordered it directly from sunja link, and she doesn't accept returns. sigh. when will i ever learn to try things on before ordering them from places that don't accept returns??

if anyone is interested, please email me.

size--M (fits a 6 or small 8)
fabric--55% linen, 45% rayon, black and white weave (looks greyish). i think this fabric will become very soft with repeated wearings.
shoulders--15.5" (approximately, raglan sleeves)
chest--19.5" (best for smaller chest, probably no bigger than a 34B)
empire waist--17.5"
length--27" from empire waist

this dress will work better with someone with narrower shoulders. i am 5'5" and it falls slightly below the knees on me. the v-neck is quite deep, also, so i would recommend wearing a camisole underneath. it is such an easy dress to wear, you just pull it over your shoulders. so perfect for spring and summer. i would pair it with leggings and an open-front cardigan. it also works well with a long-sleeved shirt underneath.

i paid $230, new without tags, asking $150, including shipping.
there's also an XS for sale (same price, $150, free shipping) on ebay.

cute dress! i'm on a shopping diet right now, but this is a perfect blank palette dress.

Argh. How disappointing.

That trying on issue is such a problem when you live so far away from stores that carry awesome clothes.

oh, i love it...
i'd buy it in a second, but i am not the fit you described either. what a bummer it didn't work for you.

what a bummer! if this is too tight in the shoulders for you, then it definitely is for me. how strange - i can't even think of the last time that i wore a size large dress?

The dress looks great on you. Sorry that the top is too snug. I'm selling my XS on ebay for the same reason.
