The Perfect Summer Jean: Embroidered Edition

The Perfect Summer Jean: Embroidered Edition is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with these jeans! As soon as I saw these jeans I knew I had to have them! I am obsessed with the embroidery trend at the moment and had heard great things about the perfect summer jeans so this was a match made in heaven! These are very flattering, the wash is nice light blue perfect for spring/summer, and the embroidery details are beautiful making the higher price worth it for me. I did not have the fit issues that some of the other reviewers mentioned, but I'm not petite which is what the other reviewers said didn't work for them. For reference I'm 5'5 and always get size 24 in madewell jeans and these were a good fit, not perfect since there is a slight gap at the back on my waist but it's not large/noticeable enough for me to be bothered by it. These jeans are worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exquisitely styled perfect jeans, ultimate 90's look, tons of compliments. The flowers are super cute and channel a summery, light look. Would recommend to everyone, and looks great with a top that ends right above the jean hemline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them These are like the old Perfect Summer jeans - which I have too. I was super excited to get these in the mail since I'm a sucker for embroidery and the fit of these jeans. Like the other reviewers, I'm petite, although slightly less so (5'4", 108lbs) and the length, folded over once, is perfect on me. I would have like to wear these jeans like the model is, but you can't have everything! The fit is nice and snug, although I know they will give somewhat, and the color and embroidery is beautiful. My only complaint is that there is a slight gap at the back of these pants in the arch of my back - the other Perfect Summer jeans don't have that, but it could just be me (the small of my back is really arched and it's possible that this new style was made slightly differently affecting the fit) I bought a 24 and was worried about the small gap, but if I go down to a 23 I won't be able to pull these over my hips - so I think I'll keep these. Can't wait to wear them and hope spring comes soon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love, but not for petite girls with curves! I've converted my whole denim closet to Madewell, and was so excited to see that they had an embroidered pair for spring. I've been searching and trying on different brands and styles, but nothing seemed to have worked so far. I hoped that with Madewell the fit would be better - but sadly, I'll have to keep searching. While the embroidery and wash of this pant is perfect, the fit was all sorts of off! The rise came even higher than my favorite 10" high-riser skinnies, and just felt so uncomfortable. The light wash accentuated every flaw on my stomach and hip area and just felt too tight! Then from the butt down, the leg was straight and loose; everything just looked odd put together. This pair will work for someone taller with a longer torso (and a flatter stomach); on my petite 5'1" frame it just couldn't work. Sadly, these will go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the embroidery! Runs large. Love the jeans & embroidery. I searched the internet for embroidered jeans and these were by far the nicest design. Unfortunately, both sizes I ordered were too large (sizes 29 & 28) and I had to return them. Since you were sold out of sz. 27, I had to order them through another website, tho they are still Madewell. I also like the placement of the embroidery & that its colors are relatively neutral so you can wear just about anything with it. Only 1 "complaint"... they are pretty full cut even for "boyfriend" jeans and would like them a little more fitted. And 1 question/observation: On the 1st 2 jeans I ordered (sizes 29 & 28) the embroidery stitching around the flowers seemed to be whiter, which I prefer. On the size 27, it seems to be more cream colored than white. Is that possible?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very cute The embroidery on these jeans is very nice. The high waist is a flash back!
