Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyLou Cute Dress!
I love this dress. I just recently bought this in the store and was able to try it on before purchasing. It is obvious in the online photos that this dress is not form fitting. I am surprised when others complain that this doesn't flatter their figure and looks like a potato sack. This is a loose fitting dress that is great for people like me who have had kids and don't have an hourglass figure anymore. I paired this dress with a pair of cognac colored boots and it was a super cute, fun outfit. I wore this outfit for Thanksgiving and received numerous compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cjkitkat1970 Works well for me!
Love this dress! It looks good on me, maybe because I am tall (5'8") and have broad shoulders. My figure isn't that cute anymore so I don't mind having a flowy dress cover my post baby tummy parts. The dress looks amazing over a pair of coral toothpick cords. Can't wait to try out various other combinations with skinny jeans and pants. Glad I gave this dress a try!

Rated 2 out of 5 by leafpeeper Beautiful dress, but too delicate!
Most of my closet staples are Madewell and I was thrilled to add the Etude dress to my collection. It's a divine cut and fabric. I purchased it in my usual size and was pleased with the fit. Sadly, the weave of the silk fabric has shred and nearly ripped apart from the both seams along the back of the dress after just 2 wears. I am taking it to the tailor hoping it can be salvaged. Fair warning!

I was very taken by the fabric of this dress and it's somewhat country/romantic appearance. Despite the other review, I went ahead and purchased it.
I would caution potential buyers of the cut/style of this dress. I am 5'6" and under 125 pounds. The dress cut made it look as though I was wearing a potatoe sack or ove-sized night gown.
I will be returning this dress and looking for something that flatters my cute figure instead.
Again, GORGEOUS fabric and unique details.

Madewell, why are you so against petite-sized clothing. J.Crew does it, why can't you? Even your XS sizes are oversized on us smaller folk. Come on, we're not all 5'7", and 130 lbs. please make the same clothes for the 5'4", 110 lb people. I loved this dress on the model. On the hanger. Online. Just not on me. tried this dress on in XS. It looked like a sad tent on me. A sac tent that went all the way to my knees. I think a sleeping gown would look better than this. I know it's just sizing, if it came in a fit more apt, I would be all over it. Please next time think smaller.
