Product Details
Specially garment-dyed for dimensional color, this apron dress is particularly sexy from behind thanks to the crisscross straps and the buttons all the way down. We love it layered over a tee or tank.

Garment-Dyed Apron Maxi Dress

Garment-Dyed Apron Maxi Dress is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dress that sings I’m so happy with this purchase! The overall design is everything I want on a hot summer day. The button closures and cut of the dress keeps the hot sun off your legs and chest, but still allows a beautiful breeze and the sun to kiss your shoulders. The pockets are in the perfect place and the large size makes this such a practical wear. It’s soft as clouds and the color is dreamy. I was hesitant to purchase as I don’t tend to wear dresses often and don’t want to spend the money on something that gets left in the back of the closet, but I’m glad I took a chance. First Madewell purchase. First online review, sorry for the ramble. I’m in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Checks all the boxes Love the color, style and material of this dress. Also love that it's machine washable and has adjustable straps. (I have a short torso and didn't want the back to be too low on me, so adjusted to the highest strap.) Usually, I stay away from dresses that require sticky bras, but this was worth it. I am 5'8, a size small (4 in tops and most dresses, 6 in bottoms). I bought the size 4. It fits true to size---fitted at the top but still loose and flowy on the bottom. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, floaty, lovely dress! Pros: the soft material drapes perfectly, adjustable straps let you get the waist placement just right, gorgeous washed-coral color flatters many skin tones, machine washable, fits true-to-size Cons: can't wear with a conventional bra, BUT if you don't mind wearing an adhesive bra, it works perfectly (C cup here for reference). You can pick adhesive bras up online or at a department store with a good lingerie section. I swear they've changed my summer-wardrobe life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Great! Going to Italy in June and this dress is perfect! Not to mention perfect for all summer as well! It's perfectly true to size! It's not tight or too loose, it's comfy and effortless in fit which is just what everyone wants! I am 5'6 and it's a perfect midi dress! I have a slim/althletic build and the 2 fit just right! Totally recommend and the straps are adjustable which is so nice for longer torsos like myself! Great job Madewell please more dress like this quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection This dress is amazing! I'm a shorty so it was more maxi than midi on me but it still looked fantastic. I went sans bra and used pasties instead. I'm 5'2", 112 lbs, 34B. A size 0 fit perfect. I highly recommend. My only complaint is that the fabric stains very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite dress in my closet. I never write reviews, but I feel like this dress deserved one because it is what dreams are made of. Think of the perfect summer vintage dress that you would want to wear roaming around the streets of old France, and you've got it. Everything from the beautiful bright color of the dress and brown, caramel buttons against the pockets (gotta love dresses that come with pockets) and sexy button down back that you wouldn't expect looking at it from the front. The good people of Madewell were kind enough to find me a dress in my size after it sold out immediately and had it ordered and delivered to me tout de suite. I don't think I've ever received better customer service from a retail store. ANYWAYS....I can't say enough about this dress. Buy it. Just make sure you have someone around to secure the tricky buttons on the back of the dress for you...;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Dress Unique and simple! I ordered my usual size and a size smaller. I could fit in the smaller size but it didn't hang right so I stuck with my usual size. Tad big in the chest but it's ok. Love the color too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from goergeous, but ran small this is pretty much my ideal dress. I'd love to have more color options! the fabric is great and it fits gorgeously. I did need to go up a size or two from my normal madewell sizes - in particular the waist band is quite snug and has no give due to the style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beeauutiful! this dress fits so amazing! im so glad i bought it. I was weary of the purchase at first, because honestly, the last few Madewell trips havent been successful. But this totally made up for it! As far as sizing down as some of the reviews stated, i would find that to be true. Because wearing a bra would be tricky, i wanted the top to fit a bit more snug. im average sized in my bust, and feel comfortable without a bra if the top is snug. so i ordered a 00 instead of my usual 0 and it worked out perfect. i even adjusted the straps to be a little tighter as well for even more support. the waistband is a little snug though, but im not concerned. it has a nice linen feel to it, perfect for summer! im so glad i ordered it and didnt wait, because now i see that most sizes are sold out :/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New fav dress I called before ordering to get the measurements for this dress since sometimes I wear a 0 and other styles a 2. I went ahead and ordered the 0 and it fits perfectly! The adjustable straps are great and I can wear it without anything underneath or in the fall later it with a tshirt. It's so soft and the material is a gorgeous color. This may be the best dress in my closet!
