Silk Fleur Bow-Back Dress in Butterfly Garden

Silk Fleur Bow-Back Dress in Butterfly Garden is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spring/summer piece I tried on this dress at the Miami location and it was the last one in my size and walked away from it basically telling myself I didn’t need it. Oh boy did I need it! It is the most beautiful casual everyday dress I own that I can dress up or down with it’s awesome length. For sure, a great buy. Wish I got the long wrap dress that was the same pattern too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use the buttons! I’m right in between a 25 and 26 in madewell jeans (I go with 25 and they stretch to fit perfectly) have a 31-32 chest so I went with a 0 double guessing myself thinking I should have gotten a 2. This is for anyone who might have the same issue I did. Lol I was so sad when I got it because it wasnt going over my head, so I was like “grr I am a 2, I knew it” *sigh* don’t do what I did it might not fit over your head, butttt if you open the buttons in the front and then slide in, it fits like a glove. I’m very happy with this dress and it’s going to be perfect for summer ! Eeek !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really pretty dress Definitely unbutton the dress when you’re putting it on. I sized up to a 6 but the 4 was ok on me (4 is my usual size but it did seem to run a little small). Once I unbuttoned it to try on, it did not seem as small. I am an hourglass figure and I think this dress flatters a small waist with the sweetheart neckline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely made Well-made lining makes this dress a little fancier-feeling than other spring options. Tie in the back makes it easy to adjust fit on top. (Bigger than A/B cup might want to try in store.) Hits just above the knee on long-legged size 0 - a little longer than expected but still cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous ... VERY fitted around the waist Love this dress, especially the color and the bow back. Warning: it is cut extremely snugly around the waist, and as it's a button dress there's no fudging on that. I could do a size smaller (and would prefer that overall) if it weren't for the narrow waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute runs small I’m a size 26 in madewell jeans and typically an XS or a 2 in tops and dresses. I had to size up to a 4 for this dress because it runs quite small in the waist/chest. Unbutton the buttons to put this dress on-you can not step into it or get it over your head. I absolutely love this dress. Once I sized up t fit perfectly. Very flattering and he perfect length just at the knees. I’m 5’6 but my legs are short so dresses always seem to look too short or too long on me. This was perfect. I got so many compliments and this can easily be dressed up or down. I wear it with a jean jacket and my birks. This dress is more mustardy than pale yellow as shown in the pictures. The only drawback is that the fabric is 100% silk, which is lovely but hard to maintain. The first time I wore this dress I already got a small stain and i can’t get it out. Hopefully the dry cleaners will be able to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to get it altered before it fits right, but worth it I absolutely fell in love with this dress when I first tried it on, however my usual size 0 fit perfectly everywhere except for the torso. The buttons down the front puckered a LOT; the fabric was stretched too tight across my breasts and at my waist. I ended up having to go up to a size 6 before the torso fit well. The buttons don't pucker as much (except for the very top one, which is easily fixed with a safety pin too pull the fabric back together) That being said, the straps on the size 6 are too long for me and fall down. I'm getting them hemmed to fit perfectly, though, and I'm also going to take about an inch off of the length of the dress (it looks great as is, but hits at the knee and I prefer right above the knee). Overall, the alterations to the dress are worth it because it's so beautiful and flattering when it fits all over! I love the color and the shape. Worth it!! For reference, I am 5'0'', chest size 34C or 32D, 125lb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sooo small As the other person mentioned, this dress is so wonderful except it runs incredibly small. I normally wear 14 and the size 16 was nowhere near even buttoning above my waist :( on a happier note, it has pockets!! Wish this would have fit me because I'm so sad to return it and not be able to get it in a size that fits me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from RUNS RIDICULOUSLY SMALL I LOVE this dress. It's so cute in every way. I am very petite but very busty. I am a 36D and usually wear 10 or 12 in Madewell dresses. The length and where it hits at my waist is perfect. But the dress was not petfect. IT RUNS SO CRAZY SMALL. It actually breaks my heart. I loved this dress so much but even in the 14, I thought I was going suffocate not just at my bust. The wist was tiny as well. Hopefully they restock the size 16. I would definitely size up even if you don't have a bust problem.
