Backyard Sundress in Indigo Shibori

Backyard Sundress in Indigo Shibori is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really runs large! First, I love this dress. The fabric I beautiful. I ordered it in several different sizes because Of the other reviews. The x-small fit the best. Usually I wear a medium in Madewell. The biggest problem with this dress is that If you size up the fabric is voluminous. If it helps I am 5'6, 118 punds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for summer! Love this dress! Nice color patterns, comfortable and flattering, you'll definitely adopt this dress for all occasion this summer! I bought this dress on a XS, which is my usual size with Madewell, and I got no big surprise. Be careful: it runs a bit large in length and width, and a little tight on the chest area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love This dress is one of my new favorites. It is comfortable, flattering and definitely something you can wear dressed up or dressed down. I wore it with a fedora and gladiator sandals the other day to a BBQ and got so many compliments! And the print is so eye-catching and cool. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable casual dress for summer time fun! I couldn't be happier with this dress. I am 5'10" and medium build and sometimes I worry that cuts like this will look baggy if there is too much fabric, but I am obsessed with Shibori so took a chance and bought this online. Couldn't be happier with the color, which is exactly as pictured, and the drape which is very flattering! Not too baggy, and the cotton is crisp so it hangs perfectly. I'm tall and the length is like it appears on the model, so beware if you are smaller, although the straps are adjustable so that helps. So cute! Even my often critical mother loved it... Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hot weather dress I received this in the mail on a 90 degree day and immediately put it on. This will be my go to weekend summer dress when it's hot and humid. It's light and very comfortable. I am usually a medium at Madewell but went with a small because it is so loose. The deep pockets are an added bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty, flirty dress Let me start off by saying I adore this dress. I'd say the color and brightness of the white aren't as vibrant as pictured, but it's still a lovely design. It's a bit longer than I'd like. I'm 5'1" and it hits just at the knees. It's a loose-fitting dress, provides no shape at all, but I like dresses like that. The straps are dainty and pretty. The dress is lined but material is light enough that it's wearable on super hot days. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress I bought this dress on sale in an XS and figured it would still run a bit large based on the other reviews. I am petite (5'2 ,110lbs) and as expected, the dress was much too long and wide on me. Thanks to the great sale, I already planned on taking this to the tailor. The dress was surprisingly tight on my chest, which was odd because I do not have a large bust (32b). Overall- quality material, great print, runs large in length and width but tight on the chest area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great summer dress The fabric is of good quality. It is lined but not heavy, making it a light easy dress for summer. Pockets are a big plus too. It is definitely a loose fit so only the back and shoulders are complimented. But on those days that you don't want anything to touch you yet still want to pull off effortless cute, this is the go to dress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute print, horrible design While this dress is of a great fabric and a beautiful print, the design is atrocious. I am usually a size medium/4/6, and even the XS in this dress looked like a paper bag on me - it just hung on me. That silhouette would maybe work with a lighter fabric, but the thickness to the cotton left it standing out.
