Denim Shirtdress

Denim Shirtdress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the softest denim! So soft and falls just right, definitely going to become a timeless closet staple piece. Not too heavy. Will look great in the fall with boots. Runs big compared to other brands but true to size for madewell dresses. 5'6/ 115 and the XXS fits perfectly. XS was a little too boxy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect wardrobe piece Love this little dress. It's going to be perfect to wear with boots, tights and as a layering piece like a jacket. It's super soft. Big plus is the side pockets. Wish the denim was just a tad darker since it will fade over time. I'm 5'2", 130lbs, medium is the perfect fit for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good cut and material but lose the pockets! I really like this dress except for the flappy, bulky pockets! I'm having them cut and sewn shut so that they don't add bulk to what is otherwise a very cute dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from huge for petites I'm 5'2 and 103 pounds and I tried on the xxs. It was super baggy and long. If you're small, it probably won't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is a great "mom" dress as I think of it. I am a new mom but don't want to give up on myself! It's great with black tights and heels or scarf and chucks. Great oversized fit that's still flattering. Win win I am 145 and 5'3" and medium is perfect
