Smocked Mini Dress

Smocked Mini Dress is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shake things up Shake things up in your wardrobe with this unique dress. The yellow is a bit more mustard than daffodil, but it's still a pretty color. I liked that this dress has a summery feel without being the more predictable white embroidered type I already have in my closet. I usually wear a 10 or 12 in madewell dresses and this worked great in a 10. I didn't think it was too short and found it to hang evenly all around. It's not too heavy and while you might think the gathered waist would accentuate a pooch, it doesn't!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pop of yellow This is a very cute summer dress. It is flattering on my hourglass shape. The smocking makes the waist fit so well! Disappointed it is shorter in real life than the photo (i am 5'7" And bought the 8). So, not versatile in a work to weekend sense. But i love the color, so will keep for casual summer occasions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute Dress for Spring and Summer I'm usually between a 2 and 4 (or xs and s) in Madewell tops and dresses. I ordered this dress in both size 2 and 4, and I decided I prefer the fit of the 2. For reference, my measurements are 34-27-37.5. The only downside is the dress is a little short. I might take it to a tailor to let the hem down. Other than that, I love the color and detailing. I was afraid the smocking and design would widen my hip area, but I actually think the upside down triangles have a slimming effect. Grab it before it's gone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So cute! Loved this dress! The color and style are great! It is a tad bit short but does fit true to size. I would wear it out casually with friends but too short to wear to work. Overall love it though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So close I immediately fell in love with this dress online and ordered it. The color, fabric, and stitching are lovely, but the proportion of the bodice/skirt were off. It was much longer in the top. When the smocking fell at my waist it was very poufy at the top and the skirt barely covered my bottom. I had to send it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color and quality hideous in person The reviews made me go from on the fence to bite the bullet while this was on sale and it was instant regret when I opened my delivery. The color is much more orange in person, the fabric is thin and snag-prone, the "mini dress" is indeed quite miniscule and not meant for anyone with any kind of rump. I am beyond bummed to have wasted so much money on a final sale item that I will definitely never wear. I will not be taking any chances on Madewell things I haven't seen in person or aren't dirt cheap in the future. You lost a customer guys! Stop with the final sale sales.
