Central Shirtdress in Thompson Plaid

Central Shirtdress in Thompson Plaid is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this before it's gone! For real. I'm 5'1" and around 110-115 lbs and this is THE MOST AMAZING DRESS. Get it before it's gone. The fabric is breezy and comfortable without being see-through, the pattern is adorable, and it actually fits me like it fits the model (never happens when you're petite/short). If they had 50 more colors I would buy them all. It's my favorite purchase in the past year of anything I've bought and anywhere I've shopped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless dress This dress is a great transition. It can be worn with tights or leggings, a leather jacket, and boots when it's cold. It can also be worn with strappy flats in the summer with a sunhat. Love it! It's big, but that's the style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual dress I'm 5 10 150 lbs and went with the large size which is perfect. On me the length hits like on the model, being a tad on the short side, but still able to wear on its own (I usually wear bike shorts under anyways just to be safe). The fabric is really light, gunna be great for summer. Love this dress and glad I snagged while on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT transition piece I'm obsessed with this dress. It's the perfect mix of dressy and casual, and the material is a perfect all season transition piece. The fabric is thin but by no means too shear and fit is super flattering despite the looseness. I will be wearing this all year and totally recommend the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Dress The dress is made of rayon, which means that it's perfect for hot summers. I am 5'4 and 100, and xs fits perfectly. The length is also great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fits more like a tunic :/ I have a Central button down shirt that I love and was expecting to love this dress, but when I tried it on in person it looked all wrong. First, the dress is incredibly short! I'm 5'8 and I wouldn't be able to wear it out on its own. Moreover, the fabric is incredibly thin and feels chap. Here's to hoping Madewell reworks this style next time around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tall Girls Need Not Apply This is far too short to call itself an XL -- or a "dress" for that matter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from why so short fits more like a tunic than a dress. wish it was just a couple inches longer. also, do not like the synthetic fabric. looks cheap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nothing Special This dess was just OK, not the usual quality of Madwell products. Material is very thin. If this had not been on sale/final I would probably return it.
