Afternoon Dress in Stripe

Afternoon Dress in Stripe is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well and very flattering Tried on this dress in store and ended up getting it. Perfect length for me and the fit & fabric are also very comfortable (I'm 5'2 and XXS in all Madewell clothes), but I can definitely see how it could be a little short for taller girls. Wore it to work today with a black cardigan and got compliments! It's so delicate that I can definitely dress it down and wear it during the weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Dress! This dress is absolutely perfect! Purchased it in black and the black stripes. Great for summer or any occasion. I've worn them both so many times already, it's my go to dress! Went with my usual Madewell size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd Front Pleat I really wanted to like this dress! After reading the reviews about the weird front pleat and the possibility that it would make me look pregnant I decided to go ahead and take a chance size I'm a size small and it was on sale on sale. I have to say, the reviews were right. The odd front pleat definitely makes you look slightly pregnant. Only the very very thin will wear this dress and not feel that way. Aside from that, I too, miss the pockets :( On the upside, material is great, fits true to size. stripes are really cute and it's giving me incentive to do that ab work :) I will wear this on days when I'm not going to eat a lot!! It was final sale so I'm making it work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I received a gift card from my sister for "my uniform" (aka the afternoon dress) when it was back in stock. This is not the afternoon dress I know and love. No pockets! I really like the fabric, and I'm desperate for a new dress, so I am going to keep it. I keep reaching for pockets that aren't there. Bring back the pockets and the flattering afternoon cut!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird and unflattering fit I have this dress from previous seasons and LOVE it! I was excited to try this on in the store, however, I was terribly disappointed in this years version. The pleat in the front is very strange and unflattering. Combined with the horizontal stripes, the pleat makes hips look extremely wide and bulges in the waist. I like the texture of the material, however it has very little stretch and is not as comfortable as previous afternoon dresses. Bring back the original version of this classic!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very strange fit! I tried this on in store because the fabric is nice & thick and looks high quality. Unfortunately, it looks really weird on! The pleat at the waist sort of makes your stomach area balloon out so you look huge, & the hem around the collar and arms is very thick. This combined with the contrasting stripes makes your shoulders look very broad and it's not a good look. Not really sure why they went in this direction with this dress.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not flattering - NOT the Afternoon Dress I ordered this because I thought it would be like the Afternoon Dresses that I had ordered in the past. Not at all! NO pockets and the fit was super unflattering - a weird pleat in the front that makes you look 5 months pregnant! Definitely regret the purchase.
