Style Number: T1772811
A dress so nice we named it twice. The seemingly simple yet downright bombshell Rosemarie is made of our eco-friendly Samba fabric (Tencel®, organic cotton, spandex), giving it the kind of versatility other dresses only dream of. It breathes and moves and follows your curves. It dresses up and dresses down. It flatters for days with a graceful V-neck, horizontal bust pleats, and an empire seam that flows into a soft, A-line drape. And the best part? A secure hand pocket! Looks like you CAN improve on perfection.

You should never have to settle. That's why we created our exclusive Samba fabric: An all-star blend of eco-friendly fibers that breathes well, has a great drape, good stretch and unparalleled resilience. A slight slub adds texture and dimension, giving it more sway in its step than conventional jersey. Look good, feel good.

Ratings & Reviews
If it ain't broke...
Let me start by saying, I love all things Toad. I love their dresses-been wearing them nonstop at home and abroad for about 6 years and they last and last. Concerning the old Rosemarie-5 stars! I have over 20 of them.
The lines of this dress are clean and simple. The dress hangs without fuss. Here lies the problem--the new addition of the right side zipper pocket. The dress is no longer smooth but bulked up on the seam on that side, and the rt seam pulls strangely when I sit. The dress now appears unbalanced and well, it just hangs plain weird-at least on my body. The stitched shape of the pocket is visible on the front of the dress and doesn't look nice. I realize this is only my opinion, other folks may love the pocket.
Please Toad, reconsider this style change to the Rosemarie (and Rosalinda). Innovation and change are good and welcome. By all means, add many new styles. But as for the Rosemarie...if it ain't broke, then by all means, please don't "fix" it.
By: Toad & CoThank you for your review Jenna! We've passed your valued feedback to the design team.
BEST DRESS EVER
The Rosemarie Dress I could own in every pattern/color. I am 5'3" , 128 lbs. I wear a size small. I have a curvy figure and this dress makes the best of my features and downplays my worst. I could not recommend it enough. It is my spring/summer go to. I can dress it up or down with shoes and accessories, jackets etc. LOVE!
It washes well. I do not need to iron it. However I do hang dry this dress for longevity.
Please no more pocket!
I've been very sad with the recent pocket additions to the dresses. The pockets make the dress look asymmetrical when worn, and feel weirdly uncomfortable. I'm always noticing the zipper tab during the day.
I'm very sad, but will not be buying any more of these dresses with pockets. I'll be looking for a new brand. At least with the new colder and pale colors, I could still choose black, but the pockets are a deal breaker for me.
By: Toad & CoStacey, thanks for your review! Sorry to hear you're not a fan of pockets in our dresses. We'll pass on your feedback to the design team. Always striving to hit the right balance of style, fit, versatility, and function.
Not liking the new design!
I have this dress from year's past, but I'm not liking the new design! Why are you skimping on the material in the armpit area? It's not flattering to people who have a little chub in that area that peeks out from front view (see model wearing coral petal print). Also, I love the idea of pockets, but the pocket seam bunches up along the side. I'm sorry to see that these 'improvements' haven't worked for me.
By: Toad & CoValerie - thank you for the feedback. The side zipper pocket was the only update to Spring 19, so we're sorry to hear you're experiencing a variance in armhole shape/coverage vs. prior season's design. Don't hesitate to reach out to email@example.com to place an exchange.
The Perfect Casual Dress
It seems like I've been looking forever for the perfect casual dress, and this is it. I came upon a Toad store in Golden and bought my first dress, and I'm about to purchase my third. It's comfortable, flattering, not too low or too short, just right. And I love the selection of colors and patterns, you can dress it up or down. I'm personally not having a problem with the pocket, I didn't even realize it was there until I'd been wearing it all day. I'm SO happy with this dress!
No more pockets
I’m afraid I have to agree with others who hate the pocket. I love this dress and collect them in all the different colors, but I will not buy another one as long as it has pockets.
By: Toad & CoWe're so sorry to hear the zipper pocket is a deal breaker for you. This season we committed to offering functional pockets in ALL our women's dresses - a request we were happy to deliver on. Sounds like we may have made a mistake on updating the beloved Rosemarie. Thank you for your honest feedback. Hope to bring the original Rosemarie back so you can continue rockin' it!
Fear of the pocket!
I am a huge fan of your dresses, I own 8 of them! I love how they feel, how they fit, and I love the complements I receive when I wear one. They are totally worth the $.
Most of all, I LOVE my black Rosemarie dress and have worn it regularly year-round (with layers in cooler months) for about three years. It's item # T1172123 / S 16, with no pocket. It has come time to replace the dress (do to an unfortunate laundry incident.) I am thrilled to see you still carry the same style, as it is really the best dress I've ever worn! But after reading the description and learning the new version includes I pocket, I was wary. Then I read the comments which confirmed my concern.
I feel like a kid who lost my favorite blankie - nothing different will suffice.
That being said, I love it enough that I'm willing to give the pocket-version a chance. But if I really don't like it, will you take it back? Better yet, do you have an older version, sans-pocket, available in black in XS or S?
By: Toad & CoThanks for your feedback Heather! As a mother of two young daughters who worship their beloved blankies - I feel you! You absolutely can return the dress if it doesn't live up to your expectations.

For the last two years I have been purchasing the Rosemarie and Rosalinda from T&C. Was very pleased. I totally agree with previous reviews. The zipper pocket is a dealbreaker. Additionally, the patterns and color selection are extraordinarily dull. I have found an alternative option for my dress purchases.
By: Toad & CoThanks for the feedback Angela! We’re continuing to product test different applications of pockets to ensure the addition of pockets on all dresses doesn't interfere with the ease and simplicity of the original design(s). Disappointed to hear you've found an alternative dress supplier. We respect your opinion.
