Silk Poppy Dress in Cactus Flower

Silk Poppy Dress in Cactus Flower is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute, true to size Cute and work appropriate! I'm 5'3" and around 120 lb (usually an XS/26 in jeans) and got the 0 in this dress, which fit perfectly. Most Madewell items run large but this one is TTS. It is flattering around the waist and the V neck isn't as low as it looks in the photo. However, this might not fit as well on bustier gals - the chest area fits pretty slim and doesn't have any give.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Piece Bought this dress under my usual sizing and the fit was perfect. Lovely color combo and a classic piece that I can see myself wearing over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and flattering This dress is everything - great, forgiving fit, cute color and pattern, and it can be dressed up or down in summer, fall, or winter. I can't wait to try this in different combinations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flattering dress I got the black dress in floral print a few months back which has a similar style to this, and I've been wanting more of these badly. Finally I saw this dress and I bought it without hesitation. I was not disappointed, the dress is flattering and the length is just right! Couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect summer to fall transition dress I bought this dress hoping this might be a work is! It is not too low cut in the v-neck and it fits perfectly through the waist and in length. I am 5' 3" and it is a few inches above my knee. In the summer, this looks cute with sandals. In the winter, I plan to wear it with camel colored boots, red tights, and a sweater. Awesome fit, color, everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cut; very flattering! I bought a similar cut dress in spring and received tons of compliments. I wore the other dress over black leggings on cool days and it was still perfect. The material on this dress is a bit more delicate tho, so will have to be careful and steam fabric to keep wrinkles out. Overall beautiful dress to transition into fall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect 10 I got this dress in the tan shade and the colors look ready for fall! The size runs pretty true and fitted. I am typically a 2 and ordered the 2. 5'8 128. I could have also worn a 4 so don't size down. Madewell, this dress is perfection..but please keep us taller girls in mind who love to wear your adorable dresses to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress! I hardly ever write reviews for clothes I have purchased but this dress caught my eye immediately when I saw it on-line. And when I received it, it did not disappoint. It fit me like it was made for me. A lot of Madewell clothing fits on the big size for me. I often have to go down a size but with this dress, a size 4 was perfect. I am 5'6" and 118lbs. I wear a 32D bra size but am narrow through my hips so often what fits on top is too big from the waist down but not true with this dress. The v-neck is not too low cut, which I appreciate. The fabric drapes beautifully. Have not worn yet so I don't know how it wears in terms of wrinkles but I do know I am looking forward to wearing it to a wedding, which is what I bought it for, but will be able to wear for less dressy occasions as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! This cut is perfect for my 5'7" 128 lb 34b frame. Had to size up for length. I get lots of compliments on this dress. Looks fab with my throwback tan wedges and with my Vaneli cafe suede 2" heel boots and jean jacket or camel sweater. It is a great versatile piece that I love every time and every way I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful transition into fall I tried on/bought this dress in person and it is so beautiful! The blue is a more "true" blue in person. The colors of the flowers are so vibrant and I feel that it's the perfect end-of-the-summer and into-the-autumn dress. It is definitely shorter than it looks! I'm 5'2 and 114 lbs and I thought the dress would be past my knees but it fell an inch or two above my knees. I bought a size small. It fit beautifully. I think the price point is a bit steep for what it is, but since I bought it in-store, I received a student discount. :] I highly recommend!
