Gathered Silk Dress

Gathered Silk Dress is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing colour and fit I love the breeziness of this dress and the vivid colour makes it feel one-of-a-kind. The gathering at the waist is flattering without being too fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit The dress is a great fit, just the right amount of baggy. You can definitely dress it up or down. It looks great with flats, heels, or boots. Color is super bright and pretty. The fabric is really high quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs big I am 5'8"/125 lbs and the zero was really big on me. I expected a loose fit in the top and skirt, but the waist was just too big. The dress was shorter than I expected, too. I read the review saying that it was shorter than pictured, and then read Madewell's comment that the picture has been fixed. I was hoping to be able to wear it to work, but it was pretty short on me -- at least an inch or two shorter than I expected based on the picture. I wasn't overly impressed with the silk, but it's pretty good quality for the price. Overall, a versatile, simple dress -- but not for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chest. Ordered a size 8. I'm 5'5". 135. My chest is a 34 D. Can barely zip up the back. Probably better for someone with smaller chest size. Had I ordered a larger size, the dress would be too big in other places.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too short Beautiful dress, but unfortunately is not as pictured. Dress is much shorter than it appears on the model. I'm 5'5 with a long torso and the dress was a good 4 inches above my knees. I wanted to wear it as a bridesmaid dress but it was too short. Will be returning.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Construction Maybe it was just the one that I got, but there are some pretty serious construction issues around the back zipper on this dress. I loved it when I tried it on-- fit was great, LOVED the yellow color, looked really great. Until the zipper broke, less than 2 minutes after putting it on. Upon further inspection, it was a construction issue with the zipper and the seaming-- one that can't be fixed and unfortunately meant that I had to return this dress. Too bad, too, because it really was adorable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as described This dress is NOT as described. It is MUCH shorter than the picture depicts-- shorter by about 2-3 inches! If you are tall, forget it. The length on a size 10 was 34 inches. I wish I would have known before ordering that it was a mini.
