Kalle Ponte Tank Dress

This is a beautiful dress, rich fabric with a flattering fit. I got the washed navy and am delighted with the purchase. In my opinion it is worth the investment. It can be dressed up with heels or could also be worn with flats for a more casual look. I like the lines and the zipper back. Not only is it elegant looking, it is very comfortable. I have several items from this company and so far, this is one of my favorites and the only one I decided to write a review on.

A different Kalle

The fabric has a different structure and texture from Kalle 1.0--it's smoother, softer, more pliable, has less structure.
It's longer--I'm 5'6", and the dress approaches a midi-style on me (very different from the models pictured on the site, who are both two or three inches taller than I am). The bottom is rather loose and looks like flaps around my legs, and it falls just below my knees.
The zipper is longer, but oddly, I don't need the zipper at all--I can just pull the dress on and off over my head easily.
The top part of the dress flows beautifully to just about the thigh, where the skirt becomes wider and interrupts the flow of the design.
The pockets are really neat, but I fight the urge to jam my hands in them and stretch the dress downward because the middle part of the dress somehow thickens my waistline (more than it actually is, haha).
The Aegean teal color is rich, blue-green, and beautiful.
I may exchange this for a small, but I'm concerned that the overall proportions might be off and the problem with the skirt is still going to be there. I could have it altered, I suppose.

Perfect work dress with sizing up

I wear a small in Camillia and Sierra, a medium in Margot, but I sized up for Kalle. Also, because I am vertically challenged, it needed shortening. Awesome work dress. I will be able to wear this to professional conferences. Thank you for including pockets!

Kalle is great business attire

I love the flattering fit and the pockets.
If this were a MAXI length, I’d wear it every day!!
As it is just at knee length, I end up pairing it with leggings and boots more often.
I understand the complaints about the larger-than-necessary arm holes, but that was easily solved by wearing a black bra.

Cute, professional, easy layering

Really liking Kalle so far, my only complaint is that the top neck/shoulder/armpit area seems bigger than it should, so it doesn't QUITE hug like I'd like it to. This is unexpected as I feel I have average top-to-bottom distribution haha. I'll likely have it altered and then she'll be perfect. Fabric is very sturdy and pockets don't sag at all with the weight of my phone, so that's great.
