Novel Maxi Dress

Novel Maxi Dress is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it I just received in the mail and wanted to love this! My first impression when I held it up was that it looked like a nurses uniform... the color was not very vibrant and the fabric was stiff and not soft. I'm normally a M or L in Madewell (5'7" 36DD) and once I tried it on I swam in it, so much extra room in the arms and chest area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to love this dress ....but the material is somewhat thin and polyester-ish. If this was jersey material I think I might like it a bit more, and it may hang a bit nicer. Just too thin. The side slits are a quite high and the dress length a bit long for my 5'4" frame. Not the Madewell quality I have come to expect. I do appreciate the sleeves, as it is something I could easily wear to work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High side slits! The dress is not the same as the photo. The side slits come up very high on the sides .... up to my mid/upper thigh! Maybe the one I got was defective? Wish it was more like photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love As Always Im just a fan of Madewell dresses. This one does not disappoint me at all. Very relaxed and I love the length on me. Im 5'2" and this works perfect

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute maxi dress This dress is comfortable and stylish. I'm 5'1 127 pounds and I ordered my usual XS. But I had to return it because I didn't feel like it was a dress for me.
