Denim Raw-Edge Dress

Denim Raw-Edge Dress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, comfy summer dress Great dress. Love the wash, the frayed hem and the softness of the denim fabric. I am 5'2", 130 lbs, 34B and bought a size S. Fit is true to size and length is good. Will be an easy throw on and go staple for me this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress Great summer dress. The color of denim is a little bit bluer than depicted in the image, which I was happy about. The material of the dress is a lot thinner than what I expected, but it makes for a nice summer dress. I'm 5'6" and 120lbs. I ordered an XS and it fits perfectly. The other reviews say that the dress is a little tight in the arms, but it's definitely not. I'm a 32 D for comparison. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer comfort Because this chambray dress is fairly thin for the Bay Area, I've only worn it in the dressing room and my own room, but so far I really like it. I'm always a small in Madewell dresses (and usually XS on top and M/6 on the bottom), and I have to admit that it's roomier around my hips than expected. I also think that it's great for curvier bodies, because the dress is shaped such that it feels it would just hang down on straighter figures and you would have to size down accordingly. I didn't feel like the pockets added bulk either, and at 5'4" the hemline is a couple inches above my knees and definitely summer work-safe. The thin quality of the material does make it feel like less of a value since I don't know how durable it will be, but I think I'll appreciate it more in an LA summer than I would in an SF summer. The color of the dress is more accurate in the picture of the dress by itself than when worn by the model, a more jean blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and versatile Perfect dress to take me through spring, summer, and into fall. The pictures online make it look 'stonewashed', but it's really a lot more subtle in person. Kind of like a soft, faded denim. I usually wear a size 12 and the large was just about right (plenty of room, but not a tent). I think you could size down if you wanted a more fitted look, but I actually wanted it to be loose and breezy. This dress is going to be a staple in my wardrobe, for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jury is still out I love this dress, I think it's a great throw on and go kind of dress. I had to go up a size (I'm usually an XS) just because it was a tad tight under the arms. On the model, it looks relatively streamlined but on me it looks a bit like a sack. It's definitely the pockets - they add so much fabric and honestly, I could do without them. The fabric could be a bit thinner and the color a little lighter, but this dress is so versatile in the summer. I will have to see if I end up keeping it - maybe i'll remove the pockets for a better fit. Very well made and comfortable, it's just some details that will make or break it for me.
