Cattail Tiered Dress

Cattail Tiered Dress is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I had the opposite reaction too. I love, LOVE poplin. I think this dress is perfect. It’s a comfortable length. Most of madewell dresses are too short for me. The dress hangs and is not see through. So freakin cute and unusual. I’ll through it on with rubber flip flops, hair in pony tail and sun glasses. It’s me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I saw the reviews and thought the dress would look like an oversized, shapeless bag on me, but I was surprised. I was at the store and decided to try it on a whim. I am a XS (5'1, 105lbs), but there was only a S which I tried on. It was roomy, but it looked good on me. Out of all the dresses I tried on at Madewell that day, it was my favorite dress. I am now planning to buy it in XS. I just wish it was offered in other colors. I realize this may not be for everyone (and I thought I was in that group, too) until I tried on the dress. I guess my point is give it a try. You may be surprised like me. Besides more colors, I would have loved pockets, but I like it enough without the pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer dress So looking at the first reviews I was a little scared to get the dress... Taking the dress out of the package when received, I had the total opposite reaction! Love at first site. Substantial, crisp cotton without being too heavy. Wore it to work with sneakers and a jean jacket the next day. Length is great (5'7''), not sheer at all. If it goes on sale, I will buy another and dye it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Piece I personally loved this dress. I know another reviewer described it as having the same feel as sheets and I get it but still love it! The weight of the heavier cotton works for this dress giving it a drapery flow. For reference, I am 5’1 and this dress hits me at the ankle. I prefer it to be shorter but nothing a easy hemming can’t fix. Overall, give this dress a chance! I felt and looked amazing in it; received a bunch of compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer dress! Adorable lightweight cotton summer dress! I love that the fabric is not see through and that the cut is a bit more modest. It is flowy and breezy and fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxed fit I really wanted to give this dress all 5 stars but couldn't. It really is an adorable dress. Casual, not form fitting. The material is very stiff. One reviewer said it felt like a bed sheet. I would agree. I'm happy with the dress, just wished a different cotton would have been used.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks like a shower curtain I pulled this out of the box and immediately knew I would hate it. The fabric is so stiff. It looked and felt like my shower curtain... don’t know how this would be flattering on anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feels like I am wearing my bedsheets Honestly felt like my bedsheets, fabric is absolutely awful! If it were flowy, it would look like sky though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what i expected Loved this style in the photo online. When it arrived- the material felt like scratchy, rumpled sheets. Very stiff, not soft and flowy looking as pictured. Overall fit/style is as pictured.
