Silk Ruffle-Hem Dress in Paint Plaid

Silk Ruffle-Hem Dress in Paint Plaid is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This dress is feel comfortable to wear and the fabric feel very good . I love the silk and unique pattern of the fabric. I got the b&w color and you can wear this dress all year long. Sizing I size down I wear 0 or 2 and xs but I got this in xxs I am 5'2 it still a little over my knees. I agreed that it will look best if you have a thin legs because the ruffle .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I really liked the dress. The silk felt great against my skin. The length was perfect, too. The fit was true to size. I am 5'5", 33-26-36 and I ordered the Size 2. I do not have skinny lower legs so the ruffle hem emphasized this. Sadly, I returned the dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compliment-getter Extraordinaire. I get multiple compliments on this dress every time I wear it. It is comfortable and flattering, and the ruffle adds a great unexpected bit of style and sophistication.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please re-stock B & W dress! Agree that this style sold out too quickly. You didn't make enough of these! Please make more, especially in the black & white!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy!! Very interesting and unexpectedly successful use of ruffles. Runs LARGE. As with most Madewell items this runs large; I'm 5'3" and usually wear Small in most brands, but even the XS of this one feels oversized in the body as well as in the sleeves. The bracelet style sleeves are not as easy to keep rolled up as with a button-down shirt, if you are curious. It's very comfortable and soft to wear, however! I could live in it forever. I can even run around in it without feeling constricted, which is great. The dress is much more close-fitting throughout on the model in the photo, but on me it really feels kind of "kooky" and tent-y and somehow I keep thinking of Yayoi Kusama because of the bold patterning and big shape. The floatiness of the silk really pulls this design together though. The quality of construction and comfort level are both solid, so now I'm just trying to decide if the artsy mod-y flavor fits my shy tastes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please bring the B&W back! I'm not usually one for frilled-hems or checkered prints, but this incorporates both so beautifully that it is like a breath of fresh air. I bought this in a size M as the S sold out before I got the chance to purchase it. It is quite loose, but it is so cute I will be keeping it, due to the loose style I think I'll get away with the excess fabric. I do wish the lining weren't 100% polyester though, and were viscose or rayon instead, any breathable material really, since the outer is a lovely light silk. I do hope the B&W is restocked, as I'll purchase another for sure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The 80's called...they want their dress back I know there area so many positive reviews for this dress and I tried it in both the white and blue versions, but I just could not get over the 80's vibe. Throw in a couple shoulder pads and you might have seen Melanie Griffin wear it in 'Working Girl". That being said I'm sure I'll see someone with it on and think it looks really cute - just did not work for me! It appears well made and I found it ran on the bigger side.
