Flannel Side-Button Shirtdress in Dark Plaid

Flannel Side-Button Shirtdress in Dark Plaid is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love with this Dress This dress is my new favorite item of clothing! I love the colors, style, and length. Word to the wise - DO NOT WASH THIS DRESS YOURSELF. It is partially wool and will shrink and shrivel in less than expert hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a comfy dress Great with a pair of tights and boots. Love the fit but it runs a lilies larger so buy a size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bike Commuter Love I bought this dress because I thought it would be a good dress for bike commuting. IT IS! The shirtdress style and the buttons on the sides make it very comfortable and easy to move in. The fabric is substantial but not too warm. It is not a brushed cotton flannel or the rumpled fabric that is mentioned in the description. I'm wearing it with black tights and black leather hightops but I will also wear it with boots or sandals. I love it so much I'm coming back for the other color. I paid full price and I have no regrets. Runs true to Madewell sizing. I normally wear a small and I bought the small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but scratchy I loved the look of this flannel dress in the photo, so I went to the store to try it. The dark plaid is beautiful and I loved the side buttons. Unfortunately, although I love all things flannel, this is a flannel/wool mix and it was just to scratchy for me. The small, which is my usual Madewell size, was a little tight through the arms and the medium was just too big elsewhere. Really wanted to love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Style is great, but too itchy I loved the style of this dress but couldn't get over how itchy it was when I tried it on. Sent it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from per usual, sleeves too short i wish Madewell would just make petite sizing instead of making their XS sleeves petite length. it looks cute if you roll up the sleeves, but IMO if i'm buying a long sleeve dress, i want the option to wear the sleeves...well, LONG. for reference, i have the same issue with all Madewell winter button downs + dresses. (i.e. flannels, shirt dresses, etc).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hand-washing ruined dress Bought this dress for the holidays. Love the style of the dress. Fit perfectly. Hand washed it once and hung to dry. Because of the wool it must have shrunk and now I can't get it back the way it was. Tried steaming it and ironing it. Should be labeled dry clean only! So sad I can't wear again :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from shrinking material I loved the style, and black watch pattern and color was exactly what I was looking for. But, black string of the textile shrinks too much. much more than it is shown in photo here. I cannot wear it without ironing it. wore just twice, and gave up. just too much to take care of. too sad. because I love the style so much, I would buy the same if they change the defect I mentioned above.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for shorties This is a cute dress, but it looked like a nightshirt on me. If you're not tall and rail thin, I think this one won't work. Too bad - back it went.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unlined and Itchy Most important measurement for ordering this item is your chest measurement. It's TTS up top. It's way too long for my 5'3" height. comes down past my knees. The snaps on the bottom make it impossible to have altered for length. The fabric is cheap. An itchy, unfortunate wool was used in the blend. Properly made, this dress would have a lining, but of course it doesn't. Silly me, I just assumed it would be properly lined given the price point.
