Dockside T-Shirt Dress

Dockside T-Shirt Dress is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer beach dress I love this dress. The fabric was even better than expected, with the texture and color. I am fairly short, so this hit right above the knee. Can be dressed up or down. And, the hidden pockets are perfect for storing a little cash if I don't want to take a handbag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than it looks online I liked the simplicity of this t-dress, and ordered it thinking I'd use it for casual wear only, but when it arrived, it was SO much better than it looked in the photo. Heavyweight fabric, very structured, minimalist and fashion forward. Fit is great for curvy girls, it hangs straight from the shoulders as any well-cut shift style dress will. I've had it for 3 weeks and worn it twice already. Will look great in the winter with tights and short boots too. Win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress, so easy and classic! I initially wasn't even going to try this dress on until an associate at the store told me it was worth a try. I'm so glad he did because it has become one of my favorite dresses. For reference I'm 5'4" and 110lbs and bought an XS. It fits slightly boxy, but fits my body really well and has a very structured, casual look. First time I wore it, so many people gave me compliments because of how tailored, simple and classic it fit. The material is nice and thick, but loose enough to stay cool during these hot months. Really great buy, especially being on sale. This dress will always be a go-to for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Offers good hit and is different When I saw it hanging in the store I was drawn to it because it was cute and unique. I always am attracted to clothes that are different but with good quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shift dress This dress is great quality and super cute- it is a boxy dress so definitely do not order a bigger size, if anything size down. Very comfortable and great quality I wish they had it in solid colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Dress to Wear This piece makes getting dressed for the day easy. Plus it has pockets! I'm 5'4 and 107 pounds and I ordered the XS. I can see how the dress might not accommodate all body types like others have mentioned but for mine it worked nicely. The only complaint is the dress is on the stiff side I am hoping after a wash or two it will help break in the fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sweet dress I love the style of this dress and get lots of compliments every time I wear it. My only complaint is that the fabric is quite heavy and I would prefer it be a lighter weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute dress Got this on reduced sale, and I'm really happy with it. I typically order M (5'9" and 145 lbs) and this dress runs true to size. It's the perfect length, loose fitting, and can be worn so many different ways. Took off one star because it does fit like a sack. I tend to gravitate toward oversized items, but it might not suit everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Summer Dress I think this is a really cute nautical patterned summer dress. I am 5'4", 135lbs, and I am usually between a small and medium in Madewell items. I took the medium in this item thanks to the previous review. The seam where the horizontal and vertical stripes meet may create a ballooning effect if you get too small of a size. However, the medium fits straight down on me, and I have wide hips. Overall, I recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks so good! I bought this dress online. I usually wear a M or L in Madewell product. The dress appeared boxy from the photos so I ended up ordering a L and was not concerned about possible fit issues. The fit is actually very very slim through the hips where the vertical stripes start. The seam between the top and bottom piece is very narrow. The dress is lovely - the material is great quality. I was so bummed that the fit is off for me and my shapely hips. Sad that I won't get to use this dress as a staple in my closet. (Also sad that I bought this dress on final sale and won't be able to return it.)
