Embroidered Slit-Sleeve Dress

Embroidered Slit-Sleeve Dress is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG - Eye Catching for Summer Festivals Can't wait to wear this awesome dress to a Diane Krall concert this Summer. I stayed with my usual Medium (36D, 148 pounds, 5'6"), There was still enough room to move and I didn't want it looking like a sack on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfortable Love this pretty dress. I'm 5' 2", 105 lbs, and bought XXS. It is comfortably loose without being too huge. It reveals more cleavage than I expected from the photo, so not quite office appropriate unless I pin it a little or tie it tightly closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, pretty & unique I love this dress! It's got a nice, relaxed fit but isn't frumpy at all. The embroidery is really pretty, and the sleeves give it a unique look. I'm 5'3" and usually wear a size 27/28 in Madewell jeans and a small in their tops. I ordered the small in this dress and it fits TTS. Get this if you're looking for something comfortable with a little special something!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Dress I like this dress a lot. Its lightweight and the V-neck doesn't go down to low on me at all, which is a plus since I have a bigger chest. The embroidery is really pretty. It could just be a smidge longer (I'm 5'4" but bc of chest things always end up a few in. shorter on me) and a little bit less sheer, but its not anything bad at all. I was able to wear this dress to work. I've worn it with black mules and white converse. I always get compliments on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress, Too Short It is a beautiful dress but just far too short for me. I say that as someone who actually prefers a shorter, mid-thigh length. I'm 5'6 and wear an xxs. It may work for others, though. I do have an extra long waist. I purchased the shirt with this same embroidery and absolutely love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super-cute, maybe slightly questionable fabric (yet to be seen) This is adorable, took me a bit to warm up to because I'm always convinced that this type of style makes me look a little fat as a shortie. However, it's definitely a perfect spring dress. The fabric is quite light-weight, I'm hoping it holds up as it was not cheap, but it's really, really freaking cute. One concern if you're tall or planning on doing a lot of reaching overhead, it is pretty short. Like when I reached my arms over my head my butt was showing, so won't be holding the high subway pole in this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from close but not quite Cute but (unlike many other Madewell dresses similar to this) it is not exactly on the level of favorite, wanna live in it everyday. It is a little boxy, and while not too short on paper, still somehow too short to safely reach for something on a shelf or walk outside in the wind. Fabric is thin and not totally opaque in the light, almost like a beach dress, except black. One of the tassel string thingies came off after wearing only once.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really worth the price I had hoped that this would be a summer staple. It's not. Fabrication is cheap and embroidery is just ok. I am returning this dress bc it's just not that great a look for me. Sizing is fine. It just appears to be 'cheap'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I ordered this in both small and medium, and neither size worked. I'm 5'4 130. The small fit through the body, but was too tight across the shoulders and the medium looked baggy and unflattering. The dress is beautiful and reading the other reviews, I just had bad luck with this one. The tassels and ties were a little annoying, but still pretty. I did get the peasant top version of this, and that worked great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap The dress is super cute but the fabric is cheap and see through!! Not worth the $!
