Silk Cargo Dress in Colorblock

Silk Cargo Dress in Colorblock is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress! Ok, I am opposite from the 1st review because I loved this dress - on the model, and in person. I love the colorblock concept and the sleeves (appropriate for work!); the silk does not feel cheap, and I didn't have the experience of the dress falling apart. A great steal for the price. Fits true to size (I'm usually a 12 in Madewell, bought an L); would love it to be longer as I'm tall, but that's a general issue I have with Madewell dresses.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from was great until back seams ripped on first wear Nice silk. Lovely design. Comfortable and chic. Unfortunately, the first time I wore it, when I reached out to pick up my son, the seams on the back of the dress at both shoulders RIPPED. Had to throw it out. Waste.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress, not designed for the real world I love the design of this dress and knew I had to snatch it up as soon as I saw it on the Madewell site. I love that Madewell offers thoughtful and interesting pieces up to a size14/XL, and find XLs to fit very true to size for me in dresses and jumpsuits. I have been living in black and white business dress basics, so this dress seemed like a perfect no-brainer, throw-it-on-and-go, luxe option. However, the fabric and quality simply do not allow this dress to perform in the real world. After a day of non strenuous wear, the seams on the back between my shoulders frayed, showing skin - it felt like they just disintegrated. I understand that the bust of a dress can be a bit strained, but I noticed that the seams in the forearms (a very loose-fitting part of the garment) were loosely stitched, leading me to think this is a problem of quality. Such a bummer on such a beautiful and pricey piece. I'm not sure I can salvage the item or get another wear out of it.
