Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fall staple dress I am really pleased with this dress! SO glad that I ordered ws not in my local store. Fits true to size. Perfect daytime length. The denim is on the lighter side so this is a great Fall to early Winter dress...well at least for Nashville TN temps! The tie waist is very unique and flattering. I do think that the long sleeves look better when cuffed or rolled up like shown on the model. Its easy, effortless style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect transition dress I wasn't sure about the wrap around part at first but it is very cute and flattering dress. I plan to wear for the rest of the summer and transition into fall with boots. Denim is soft and very comfortable as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits great! I LOVE THIS DRESS! The jean is light-weight, it's a flattering style and it fits true to size. I'm a 12-14 and the XL fit perfectly. Note that when you untie the waist, your back thigh/butt will show so you might want to wear a slip (I don't personally need one).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks great in the picture but why no back view? Madewell, it would be helpful to see the back of this dress. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An itty bitty bit too big After a steamy summer where my waist pretty much disappeared under loose, waistless dresses, I liked the slightly more fitted look of this shirtdress. Unfortunately, the small might actually be a tiny bit too large below the waist. If I tie the wrap the way it's supposed to be tied, it makes me look like I have a gut. If I tie the wrap so it fits, it makes the rest of the dress pleat in funny places. (For reference, I'm 5'7, 128lbs, 27" natural waist, and I'm usually an XS or a S in Madewell dresses and tops.) I'm going to return this for the XS and hope it's not too tight on top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gaping, buttons popping open Very cute design but the stretchiness of the fabric and the size of the button holes leaves those of us with a bust in danger. Even when it's not popping loose, there is still significant gaping. I sized up and the problem was still there but the fit was off in the shoulders and underarms. I had high hopes for this but unfortunately had to return.
