Lightstitch Tunic Dress

Lightstitch Tunic Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy dress! I purchased this dress last minute for a birthday dinner. I thought the dress I had brought with me was too dressy. I paired this with a loose fish tail braid and black Birkenstocks. Effortlessly cool. The dress is really comfortable and will be easy to transition into fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TUNIC DRESS I love this dress…I wore it to Beyonce and Jay Z concert with my Camille sandals from Madewell and the outfit was just as I pictured. I am such a fan of Madewell as they are apart of Jcrew my other favorite store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for slender arms i have muscular shoulders and arms, so this was a tighter fit for me. I had to snip the seam in the armpit to make room for my biceps haha. i like the ease through the body, it's loose but doesn't make you look fat. There is no stretch, so it can be a little restrictive when sitting, bending over, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice dress but... I'm very petite and ordered the smallest size. It's a nice dress, but it looked sort of like a sack. I took it to a tailor and had darts put in the back, which solved the problem a little (still a little looser than I would prefer). I do like the dress, but I don't like that I had to have it tailored.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, Casual Dress I coveted this dress for a long time and even though the stores no longer stock it, was able to purchase the black/orange one online and I'm so glad I did. It's a really cute casual dress and I can't wait to pair it with boots and tights this fall. I'm 5'7" and 155lbs and the M size fits well. I belted the dress to give it a little more shape and that worked very nicely too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dress is short, runs a bit large I am 5'4, 132 lbs. I ordered sz Small without trying it on in the store. I normally wear sz 8. I was worried that it may be tight at the hip. However, it fits me perfectly. The dress is quite short, 3 to 4 inches above my knees. I do wear it to work but have to be careful when i sit down. If you are taller than 5 feet 4, this dress would be too short for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I took a risk ordering this dress on final sale. I ordered the small and the sleeves are really tight and the material itself isn't overly flattering or comfy. I was hoping for more of a cottony feel, but it is very heavy. I got it in white and it does have a slip underneath so it isn't see through. I will wear it because I can't take it back but I would suggest to get to look like the model is wearing it then order up a size. I do like the print, I have a skirt with the same print so that wasn't disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, but doesn't wear well I wore this dress once, to work, and by the end of the day I felt like I was wearing a burlap sack. I typically like shift dresses, but the heavy material on this one contributes to a unflattering shape after a day filled with sitting and moving about. Perhaps it would be different for a super thin gal, but on generally average me, it made me feel bigger than I actually am, which is 5'6, 145 (I got my normal size M). I wish I could return it, but it's so clearly been worn. My hope is that it'll transition to fall/winter and be great with tights and a blazer.
