Knit Bell-Sleeve Dress

Knit Bell-Sleeve Dress is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Perfect Simple Dress When you don't want to think about what to wear, this is the dress to slip on. It's perfectly tailored and the feminine bell-sleeve adds the special touch that sets it apart from other simple knit dresses. I got so many compliments when I wore it. The dress is so easy to wear and can be dressed up with great jewelry and boots or down with some sneakers and a denim vest. I'll pull out both options this season. I so wish this dress were available in additional colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! This dress could not be any more perfect. Wonderful quality, timeless style and the perfect fit. I'm 5'3", 110 lbs and XXS fit me perfectly. I usually wear XXS or XS in Madewell. Fits me like a glove and can be dressed up or down, though the material isn't particularly dressy so I think it is better served for work and more casual wear, not a wedding or anything. Run, do not walk, to buy this gem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plain cute Good transitional dress, perfect for travel.I tried it on in the store, then thought about it and got it online. I usually stay away from anything even suggesting a ruffle, but these sleeves work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality dress! With Madewell dresses, which size I buy depends on the style (i.e. if it is a looser fit dress I go for an xxs, more fitted style xs). I purchased this dress in an xs and it runs pretty true to size. It is good quality, a definite wear to work staple. It is a very classic, simple dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless Piece My dress arrived today, and it's BEAUTIFUL. The color is great, a nice deep charcoal gray. The fabric is SO soft, and the tailoring is outstanding. Due to its minimal style, I feel that this dress is completely timeless. This will be in style for YEARS. I ordered a size large, due to the fact that I've had a couple babies, and I'm in the over 50 club. It fits perfect. Also,I'm only 5'1, so the dress hits right at my knees. This will look awesome with black tights and flats, as well as with heels or boots. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. A+ Madewell.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile dress This dress is a nice quality and I believe can fit a variety of body types. The sleeve shape is really cute and adds interest. I am 5'2" and 110 lbs. I ordered size XS. It is longer on me than on the model (obviously!) but still above the knee. The sleeves are also longer but not too long and still look great. I think with tights this will transition into fall nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short! I initially got this dress to wear to work. I am 5'7", slender, and got an XS. The dress fits great, but ended up being way too short to wear to work especially after I made the mistake of drying it once. It is even on the short side to wear casually and I am 23. I wish Madewell would introduce a tall line so taller women could wear their styles to the office!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shrank Love the dress - perfect for work and flattering for my post baby figure. But it shrank in the wash and is now much shorter, and the sleeves are shorter. Luckily I can just about still wear it, but it's such a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CLASSIC PIECE WITH COMFORT The charcoal shade is perfect for fall going into lighter winter days... its a wonderful hue to sport with a denim jacket for a casual fare OR with a pair of boots or pumps for a more dress it up look. The fabric is medium weight and soft and overall the dress has a nice flow about it. Its very comfortable and the bell sleeves just give it that added touch and a hint of chic!
