Stripe-Play Button-Back Tee Dress

Stripe-Play Button-Back Tee Dress is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE please get more colors and patterns I am absolutely in love with this dress. It is my new favorite dress and will probably be the one I wear most this summer. It can be worn casual with sandals or dressed up with heels and red lipstick. I am 5'8 and usually a small (size 4) in shirts and other store's dresses but with madewell I always fit best in XS dresses. This dress fits perfect and it's also not too short which I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, easy summer dress This is the first review I've ever written online! I love this dress! I am 5'4, 32dd, straight otherwise with long legs, and short torso. I am usually a 2 in tops and a 25/26 in pants. I kept the XS. It's so easy to throw on with cute sandals or sneakers. It has pockets! It does fit a little boxy, but not overly so. I would buy it in every color/pattern if it was available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new summer staple This dress is perfection! Recently, Madewell dresses are a 50/50 hit or miss for me, and I'm so happy that this turned out to be an absolute hit. I'm 5'7" and bought my usual size small. The fit is just as it looks on the model - perfectly oversized without being shapeless and the length is just right. The only thing I would change is the buttons - I'd love to see this with a wooden button instead of white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this I just got this at the store. It's an inch longer on me than the picture, I'm 5'8". It has enough fabric in the hem to take it down an inch, which I may do. I haven't washed it yet, but Madewell says fabrics are pre-washed and don't shrink. Love the easy style, it's a draped linen, and flattering on my curvy figure. Runs true to the size chart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Dress I'm a 25 jean, 5"7', 122lbs, 34c, small top, I purchased this dress in an xs and fits perfectly. It lays really well and the perfect length! When I tried it on in the store I immediately asked my sales associate for more colors to purchase. Make more colors please!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short, but Comfy A little shorter that I had anticipated. I think it would be perfect with maybe just 2 inches more on the bottom. But I got it one size up and it hangs loose with a thin belt looks really cute. I love the buttons and its really comfortable. Easy to travel with especially in hot locations it works great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this dress. Great pattern, great fit, great fabric. It did shrink in the wash (even with line dry) so I'm happy I sized up. I'm thinking about stitching the placket on the back closed as I've had some close calls with buttons popping open after sitting down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE but keeps coming unbuttoned I love love this dress - I got it less than a week ago and have already worn in twice. It is definitely a loose fit - I typically order a medium in dresses and bought the small and it fits perfectly. I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs. I don't think it makes my hips look larger, more of a straight fit but definitely loose (in a good way). My only complaint (and its an important one!) is that I noticed after the first day I wore it that the bottom three buttons had come undone at some point! Luckily I was just with family, but I wore it to work this week and had to constantly check and rebutton the bottom couple of buttons. I whole-heartedly recommend this dress but beware that the buttons are not the most reliable! May look into sewing them in somehow since I put it on over my head anyways...
