Denim Shirtdress

Denim Shirtdress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great, comfortable dress This dress is super comfortable. I’m 5’10 135 lbs and the small fit me very well. It’s not for someone who doesn’t like short dresses, very short. It’s also slightly A-line, it doesn’t go straight up and down like the courier shirt dresses, which is kind of nice because it give a little more definition. It also has great, roomy pockets. I love this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, chic and can style up or down I'm 5'7" and weigh about 145 lbs, small upper body, wide hips (27r/28r in jeans). I ordered a medium because I wanted it to be on the shiftier, boxier side. The denim is relatively lightweight and falls nicely on the body. It comes to just above my knee cap when standing. It definitely runs big, but doesn't look sloppy or like I'm drowning in it. This dress has side and front patch pockets which is a dream. I can style this up or down very easily since it's a plain canvas and it can be worn year round. The denim is dark enough and it does not have whiskering (thank god) so it can be work appropriate. Overall I recommend this dress and I know I'll wear it for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute and sassy Ordered this and couldn't wait to receive it and wear it. The fit is great and I will be able to wear it many diffrent ways throughout the year. I figure I will also be able to wear unbuttoned and wear as a light weight duster. Very versatile. Smart purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staple dress If you are looking for staple dress that can cover off on many seasons, this is the dress for you. You can pull it off with tights and boots, heels, flats, oxfords, or even sneakers. The fit is very flattering. I was concerned it would be too "boxy" or "wide" but the dress pulls off the a-line beautifully. The best part...pockets!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Just one more rave review for this dress, in the hopes the style will return in future seasons. I'm definitely going to wear this one out. Super comfortable, delightfully soft, denim, in a flattering style. I probably should just buy a second one to have when this one gives out. I put my hands deeply into the pockets the first time I wore it and tore the pocket stitching a bit. I liked this dress so much I had it repaired and still recommend it. I guess that's the price you pay for more comfortable, lighter-weight, denim, but do be a little gentle with this one. Fits TTT, if not just slightly roomy - not enormous for me, as some have suggested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, great fit This is a classic denim shirtdress. The material is high quality and the fit is fantastic. I was a bit worried about getting a small since I have a large bust, but the style seems to be a bit loose so it hangs nicely. A must for your closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Piece!! Love the cut of this dress, especially the hemline. Denim is firm without being too thick and I know I will be wearing this a lot and layering over it in the winter. Fit is spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 stars!!! If I could rate this dress higher than 5 stars, I would! I bought this when it first came into the store. I have worn it over and over again, because it is so versatile and comfortable. Beautiful wash. I am normally a small/medium at Madewell, depending on the item, and I needed the small. It is loose through the body, so the medium was too big. Sometimes small shirts and jackets are too tight in the shoulders and arms, but this was not the case. Wear it with the Janice boot to dress it up or a pair of sneakers for fun. I have traveled with this, washed and dried it many times and it is still amazing. I might even get a second one if it gets marked down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A smart looking little denim dress Just what you'd hope for in a denim dress. Will be adorable with tights and boots this winter, and, in warm weather, with flats and bare legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best denim dress! I've had a few chambray/denim dresses but this one is by far the best one I've owned. It's simple and perfect. The fabric is a perfect mid-weight, soft, and a versatile dark color. (it looks brighter online) I'm 5'5 and it hits right at my knees making it wearable for work. The pockets are thin enough that they don't add volume to my hips. Love it so much I practically wore it out of the store. I know it's going to be one of those pieces I have to force myself not to wear every day. I'm usually a M/L in Madewell but I went with medium and it's perfect.
