Backyard Sundress in Burgundy Ikat

Backyard Sundress in Burgundy Ikat is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect casual summer dress I picked this up in-store last month, on sale and I only wish we were not having such a cool weather summer! I've only been able to wear it once but wow, the compliments! The comfort! It's super cute and even has pockets, which I love. It's very roomy so you want to be careful with the sizing. I'm 5'9", 116 lbs, so despite my height, I got the XS and it fits great. The burgundy color is refreshing and it seems like Madewell has more items of that color, which I will definitely be considering. Here's hoping for a hot fall, so I can wear it some more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer/fall dress Love this dress. Great for summer but could easily transition to fall by adding a blazer or sweater. As other reviewers noted runs large so I ordered a size smaller than usual and it fit perfectly. Great value since bought on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Dress I bought this dress a few days ago and I'm obsessed with it. It's light and the shape is perfect for this dog days of summer where anything touching your skin means you're sweating. I think cinching the waist with a cute belt might also work well with this dress. I love the pockets too. The fabric is good quality too, I think this dress will last a few summers. One of the best dresses I've bought from here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I have been looking for a dress that could go from beach, to backyard bbq, to dinner, and I finally have it! I love the unexpected print of this dress, and the fabric feels sturdy enough that it is not see-through and will be long-lasting. The flowy fit makes it perfect for staying cool on hot days. What I am most excited about is the LENGTH!! I am 6'2" and this hits me a few inches above the knees. Thank you thank you for providing me a cute dress that isn't obscenely short! The adjustable straps are an added plus as well for tall girls (and I'm sure they will be for more petite girls also, or for general modesty adjustability!) Love it so much I ordered the similar cross-back dress in blue tie dye. I am wary about that one saying hand wash, however!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress but runs large Love this dress but I'd recommend sizing down. I normally wear a small or size 6 in Madewell dresses and the small is MASSIVE on me, not even a belt could save it. Needed an XS. Super cute and comfortable and perfect for summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable sundress I love this dress! It's simple and cute, made of soft cotton that is very light but drapes well, and it has useful pockets. I like the darker color scheme. It will be a go-to, no fuss dress for the hot days of summer. Unlike several other reviewers, I found it TTS - I'm normally size 12/L and I got it in L, I tried M and there was pulling under arms as I clearly needed my regular size to correctly fit in the bust. I didn't think the skirt was too full in size L.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite summer dress! This is a perfect casual summer dress and just as cute in person as it is online. Word of warning though - this dress runs very big so size down. I am 5'3" 128 lb and normally wear a Small in dresses at Madewell but was drowning in fabric in this one - I ended up getting an XXS in the store and it's perfect! Highly recommend this dress

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been Waiting for This One for Months! When I saw this dress in the Spring preview, I knew I had to have it and it certainly doesn't disappoint! It's an extremely lightweight cotton, making it perfect for the summer months! Also, it looks great worn with or without a belt and can be accessorized so easily! Overall, there's nothing not to like! Perfect go-to dress! I would recommend sizing down, I usually wear a small or extra small depending on the dress and this one is oversized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will be my go-to summer dress of 2014 Gorgeous, chic, comfortable, looks best on me with a belt added to define the waist. Or you can wear loose like the model in the picture does for a shift-like dress look. Best of all no underwear lines even when wearing cotton briefs ;) I've gotten so many compliments on my dress, I imagine it will be sold out fast. I saw a lot of other girls and employees trying it on at the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good summer dress Got this on sale, I don't think I'd get it at full price. It's a very full skirt, and I wore it with a belt, though for a more breezy look, wear it as is. The straps are adjustable, which is nice, and I like that it's a more muted color than the typical bright summer prints. It did have some pulls in the fabric, but it might just be the texture of the fabric.
