Embroidered Denim Dress

Embroidered Denim Dress is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on curves Love this dress! Was slightly shorter and tighter (I usually go for looser fits) than I had anticipated but it looked great on so I had to keep it. For the record, I am 5'7", 140 lbs, 32 DD. I'm curvy and tall-ish. Bought my usual size 4 and it fit like a glove. Very flattering and forgiving. Highly recommend if you want a go to for feeling effortlessly sexy or if you have a 70's-themed party to attend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this dress! As the other reviewers have said, it's flattering and forgiving -- and the embroidery makes it more unique than other denim dresses. Have worn it a bunch of times already and gotten many compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Chic! 5th denim Madewell dress for me. Obsessed? Yes. I love the material that they use for these dresses, stretch so they are comfy but not too stretchy that they stretch out. I got a 00, I am 5'5'' and 108 lbs. Personally I think they run a little large because at no other company am I a 00 in anything. I love this. Make denim dresses every season and I will buy them!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And it has snaps. It's a win all around. The length isn't too short, the fabric is forgiving and the embroidery is lovely. I'll be paring this with some tights with the weather changes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute! Size ref: 5'1, 110 lbs, 25 inch waist, short waisted Size ordered: 00 (my usual at Madewell) The dress fit slightly big on top, but not enough to bother me, as I think it's not supposed to be fitted. The length was perfect for my height. The denim was also super soft. I think it looks better with the sleeves rolled up as pictured because when undone, they are a tad long on me. Overall, it's a super cute dress I look forward to wear once the weather cools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best thing This dress is beyond amazing. My go to if I want to be comfortable and warm all day. The cut is super flattering and I get compliments on it all the time. I was on the fence about the embellishments but the cut and quality were so great that I looked past it and I am so glad that I did. It's so great that I almost want to buy a backup! I think it would be beyond cool if madewell brought this dress back in the future but in different denim washes and colors without the embellishments. It would be life changing. If you are on the fence about this dress just buy it, you won't regret it! Love love love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me happy I ordered a size 12 and it fit like it was made for me. The flowers are so pretty and really elevate the dress to something special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denim dress perfection The details on this dress are absolutely beautiful. Yes, a little roomy, but I like that in a denim dress, especially for broad shoulders like mine. You do actually have belt loops if you wanted to cinch the waist. The best part for me is where the waist falls. I rarely find dresses that fall at my waist (long torso), and this hits it perfectly.
