Bell-Sleeve Dress in Leighton Plaid

Bell-Sleeve Dress in Leighton Plaid is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from So cute, Too short I wanted to love this dress! The sleeves are adorable and the fabric is beautiful. It's just too short! I am only 5'3 and didn't feel comfortable wearing it outside by house. I can't imagine if I were taller. Madewell, make it again, but longer!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Small The pattern and design of this dress are darling. This dress is cut VERY small. I had to size up two sizes, and the cotton is stiff. I haven't decided if I will keep it. It's not very comfortable, but it's so cute!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why so short?? This style and print are to die for, but seriously, why must this be so short? Madewell dresses are getting shorter and shorter, after this one I may just give up and stop even trying them on. Short skirts are not the look I'm going for. Add 4" to this dress and make it in every color and I will buy them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super cute I disagree with the other reviewers about the sizing -- I'm 5 foot 4, 115 pounds and the 0 fit well. I tried on the 2 also but thought the length was too long to be cute and flirty. Could see this being a beachy dress or something for a slightly formal occasion. the sleeves are super cute. Just wish it came in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute dress I am 5' 2" 140 lbs and got this in a size 6. I'm not sure why everyone thinks it's too short. Maybe it fits me differently, but i think its a little long. The sleeves and print are so super cute. i don't find the neckline super flattering but it looks better with a giant necklace.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from :( Hearing that this dress ran small, I jumped on it hoping it would work. At 5'2" 90lbs I can't wear most madewell dresses or formal shirts, finding them all to run oversized and shapeless. Unfortunately this one didn't work either. It was really huge in the body but short (not TOO short for vacation wear, but anyone taller may disagree), and the v-neck went down way too far. Otherwise cute but had to be returned. Madewell, please make petite sizing...I would buy so much.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from if you plan to move in this dress, plan to show everything. i'm 5'7" 126 lbs and i tried on the 2 and 4.. the 2 had a better fit overall but it was a little too short so i bought the 4 (a no brainer as it was on sale). unfortunately, while wearing for five minutes around the house, i realized the 4 was also too short - the second i would lift my arms or lean over even slightly, it would show everything. if you're under like 5'3" or will only be standing still, go for it. otherwise, this is a hard no.
