Silk One-Shoulder Dress

Silk One-Shoulder Dress is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect LBD! I love this dress. I wore it recently to a work event and it was beautiful. Its classy but the one shoulder keeps it young and fun. I see this as a piece I will have for years to come. The pockets were super handy so I could slip my phone in there and have my hands free. I saw other reviews complaining about the pockets, which made me laugh, as that's the main reason I buy dresses at Madewell, I have grown so dependant on the dress pockets, its actually hard for me to shop elsewhere. The fit is perfect, not too short, not too long, and the body is flowy without being overly "fabric-ey".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Engagment Party Piece This dress was perfect for the engagement party I attended. I actually ended up buying in both colors. Dusty red for the engagement party and black for my future work Christmas party. It is a totally tasteful and classic piece to my wardrobe. I found it easy to pair with heels I owned and it looked amazing with sparkly-studded dangling earrings. I looked fabulous and people notice. I also loved the pockets! Thank you so much for making such a timeless dress!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the pockets! Seems like people aren't fans of the pockets.. I like them! It is a loose shape, but I kinda like a dress where I don't need to wear spanx. I ordered the "dusty burgundy" and it is definitely dusty (more so than the picture), but I like it. I'm 5'6 and ordered a size 10. It falls just above my knees. I was afraid it would be too short based on the picture- but length is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute with tweaks as the reviewer said above the pockets need to go - i took it to my seamstress and had her remove the pockets and sew up the sides, and make it a little more flattering by taking in the seams on the sides for a better fit. it's perfect now. Not everyone will want to spend the additional $$ altering the dress, but I'm used to altering things as I am only 5'2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great find Excited that I got this dress with a great promo--I usually wear xs/s in Madewell dresses and ordered a size 4--fits well on me (5'4" 125). It is non-waisted--which is flattering on my figure---the silk drapes well and it is not too baggy. The cut of this dress makes the one shoulder style feel more classic vs too trendy (I am in the over 40 set and this works for me). And, the pockets are awesome, I don't find them unflattering or bulky as some reviewers have noted. I am high waisted, so that may affect where they hit?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pockets ruin the dress! I ordered this dress for a wedding and was so disappointed by the way it fit. The pockets are placed really low on the hips and do not sit right - completely ruins the dress and fit and makes for an unflattering shape. I am 5'10, 140 lbs. The top fits beautifully! If only those pockets weren't there!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has polyester lining I wish I'd read the description more closely. This silk dress has a polyester lining which is a shame because one of the main reasons to wear silk is its breathability and how nice it feels against the skin. I was just so confident that a Madewell garment would be well... well made. If they had to use a non-silk lining, presumably to keep the costs down they should have chosen a fabric that breathed, such as Rayon. Regarding fit, it was baggier than I expected considering I ordered an XS and too broad across the shoulders for me. Would like to return it but having to pay for return shipping across the pond doesn't make it worth my while.
