Wrinkle Resistant

TENCEL® is a branded lyocell fiber that comes from the pulp of trees that are grown on sustainably run farms certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

The eucalyptus wood pulp is dissolved in a non-toxic organic solvent. The solution is extruded through fine holes to produce fiber and the solvent is recycled in a closed-loop process – more than 99% of the solvent is recovered and reused. We ensure that the fabric processing of TENCEL® lyocell fiber does not utilize any harmful chemicals (like formaldehyde).

TENCEL lyocell is a high-tenacity cellulosic fiber, which gives high strength properties to the fabric which can then be used in place of other regenerated cellulose fibers such as viscose rayon.

Women's Lightweight Pataloha™ Dress is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The material is so soft! The length is great for me since I am only 5'1". Awesome for hot summer days!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lovely fabric, less than ideal fit I was so excited to try this dress for the breezy, beautifully printed fabric. Unfortunately the fit is... unorthodox. It's not clear to me where the waist is supposed to fall: just under-bust (empire-style) makes the overall length very short and the bust strangely baggy, but trying to settle the gather at my natural waist by lengthening the straps meant next to no coverage up top - and I'm short-waisted. I might take it in at the top and wear it with leggings, though that would sadly diminish its airy feel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was Excited For This - But Odd/Poor Fit I was super psyched to bring this on a trip but alas, the fit was weird and it didn't work. The fabric and pattern options are great. The bottom fits well enough. Pockets are always a perk. But the fit is on top is way abnormal. I'm not sure who it would fit properly... someone pretty full on top? The V of the top is very low and despite the adjustable shoulder straps, there was no way this was going to work. (I'm a small on top, B-cup kinda gal). I would've had to wear a cami underneath (any bra would've looked weird) and the cami would take away from the airy feel and desired style of the dress. The drawstring cinch doesn't actually do much to help make anything fit. I'm not sure what size/model this fits, as I got a small and there was no hope. Please fix for next season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Dress This dress is gorgeous, so soft and very well made, love the pattern (Mountain Dogwood). The fit is great except in the bust it is looser than I would like, but I am very small chested. I am 32A, 5'1 116 lbs and I bought an x-small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress I love the fabric and dress style but runs big. Had to sew some adjustments as I bought for a trip and didn't have time to return/exchange. It's frustrating with Patagonia. I love the products, have many, but fit is often an issue. I wish that was more consistent for me. I am 5'4", 120 lb, bought a small, needed an extra small, but able to make it work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for every occasion! This dress is very soft and washes/irons well. I've worn it to concerts and dinners and nights out. The cross body front is flattering and straps are adjustable. For reference - 130#s, 5'5", 32B and XS fits perfectly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and fun, but very loose I've had this dress for about a month now, and I've worn it a few times since I got it and washed it once. Every time I've worn it, I've gotten compliments about how nice it looks. The fabric of this dress is lovely. It feels soft and washes very well, and hasn't lost any of its vibrance after the first wash. I love this dress, and the only thing that's keeping me from giving it five stars is how low cut it is. I like low cut dresses. I'll wear lower cut dresses than anybody I know, and still it's too low for me. Tank tops and the like don't look good underneath it. I wear it with the straps as short as possible, which helps quite a bit, but I still have a hard time keeping myself covered when I'm out and about and frequently have to readjust. The dress looks great, but nobody wants to spend their whole day worrying it's fallen out of place. From what I've seen, this is a common problem with Patagonia's dresses. All things considered, though, I love this dress and will not be returning it. It fits me well, it looks good, and the fabric is great and seems like it's going to hold up for a long time. If you're considering this dress, I would recommend checking the size chart against your own measurements. If you fall between two sizes, choose a size up. This dress looks best when you give it a bit of breathing room. If it's not loose around the stomach and waist, it's too small for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty fabric, confusing fit. I ordered this dress in S and M hoping one would fit, and neither worked at all - much too much gape at my chest. I'm 5'5", 140 lbs, 34C, usually wear M. The wrap front gaped wide enough and deep enough that the center of my bra was exposed in both sizes, with not enough slack to pin it together even, and the straps were precarious. It felt like to have enough support it needed to either have no elastic at the back so that the sides wouldn't be pulled apart, or to have the straps in a racerback format, which I tried pinning, but even then there just wasn't enough fabric. I may order a L, because I had my heart set on the Galah Green print, but it will likely be too big in the waist/skirt. I'm not even that busty, but it seems this is not to be recommended for busty women? The fabric was high quality though, pretty and very soft! I wish it had fit better!
