Utility Shirtdress

Utility Shirtdress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short dress or long top for leggings/tights This dress is a great color--and the fabric is terrific. It's nicely styled--even for winter--it works as a long top with cords or leggings. It's heavy and washes and dries almost totally ready to wear. It is boxy, yet great with a leaner cords--and looks great with short boots. It will also be great when the weather is warmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from all around great dress I love this dress, however it does run a bit large, I had to exchange it for a smaller size. I am anxious for the new on to arrive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Comfy and you can wear many ways. Looks great with a skinny belt and heels/booties; with a denim vest and flats... It's oversized and forgiving - just style it the right way. Have worn it all through spring and summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go to drees for Fall! This is the perfect dress for Fall. It can be paired with bare legs and booties while the weather cools down, layered with tights and riding boots through the winter and then stripped back down and thrown on with sandals for Spring. A must have silouette in every girls closet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun fit for me I'm 5'6" and weigh 120lbs -- I love the way this dress fits. It's definitely baggy, but it's short and will be fun with booties. I ordered XS. It will likely be a staple this fall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Extremely Large This dress is great and I love the boxy cut, olive color, and style, however, it runs extremely large. I ordered a small (I'm 5'6" and 115 pounds) and when I went back for an extra small it was sold out so I had to give it to my mom. I'm not even sure an XS would've fit, that is how big it is. Three stars given because of the size issue, if it would have fit me it would have been given 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from maternity potato sack there is a pleat under the placket that makes this dress huge and shapeless. it runs large. the fabric is substantial and it's constructed like a work shirt- but it wold have been more flattering in a thinner fabric. it's very plain in a bad way- i sent it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I'd hoped for. I was obsessed with this shirtdress when I first saw it online. I don't have a MadeWell near by, so I planned on ordering this dress but it had sold out! After some time, I saw that the dress was restocked and on sale. I ordered it but was disappointed when it arrived. It looks so adorable on the model in the photo but in person it was like a potato sack on me. I tried belting it and there was still so much material. Normally, I love drapey dresses but this was just too much for me. The material is also very thick and heavy. So sad but back to the store it went.
