Silk Embroidered Prologue Dress

Silk Embroidered Prologue Dress is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous blue, beautiful embroidery Wore this to dinner the other night and got four compliments before we were even seated! Yes, it's that beautiful! I tweaked the concept a little - lost the belt and trimmed off the belt loops - and wore it loose. Silk doesn't make great sense in South Texas but as a loose dress, it works! And THANK YOU, MADEWELL for the generous fit under the arms in case it does get a little warm! In the end, it turned out to be nearly perfect because the long sleeves were a great defense against the air-conditioning and the silk gave such a luxurious feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful silk dress, lovely embroidery I love this dress. I've been trying to stock up on long sleeved dresses to deal with my freezing office, but I plan to wear this to Passover this weekend & know I will wear this on all kinds of occasions. Such a gorgeous dress with beautiful and delicate embroidery. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully made. I bought this recently in the Madison in NYC at a great sale price. Fits well with leggings underneath. Often tunics are cut too large in the shoulders and have too much fabric for my small frame. This one is great! I will wear this out to dinner ,parties or brunch. Stylish but appropriate for a 60+ plus woman.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable This dress has great detail and is much less bright blue in person. It does wrinkle but it's silk so it wasn't a total surprise. I like it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress, funny lining This dress is lovely -- especially the embroidery on the placket. I'm not sure if I'm keeping it for two reasons -- the lining is very odd and hard to get in and out of, and the silk seems to wrinkle very easily. But if you don't mind ironing, it's a beautiful, unique dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty dress, odd fit I am 5'5" and 125. I ordered my usual size small and thought the dress did not have enough ease for the style. It looked skimpy, but I think the next size will be too big. It was especially tight through the top of the arms. Also, I think the color was darker and less vibrant in person. I wish it had worked because the embroidery is very pretty.
