Easy Silk Dress in Batik Vine

Easy Silk Dress in Batik Vine is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! It's been too cold for me to wear this dress outside of my apartment, but I can hardly wait to wear it this spring! The color is fabulous (more maroon than plum, which was totally fine with me), and the print is really unique. Eye-catching, but still looks effortless. For sizing reference, I'm 5'8 and wear a size 27 in Madewell jeans. I ordered a small, and was worried it would be too short. This was not at all the case–I'm really pleased with the length of the dress, and I love that it's slightly longer in the back. That being said, I could see it not working as well for the shorter gals out there without having to get it hemmed, which is a pain. Other reviews expressed issues with static. It's definitely real, but nothing a dryer sheet or Scotchgard couldn't dispense. I can't imagine letting that stop me from wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer dress Some of the reviews said this dress has a lot of static. It looks awesome on the model so I went ahead and bought it - at extra 40% off sale!! I wore it last weekend and it was fantastic. I ran a metal hanger over the dress and the slip and I did not have static problems, even after dancing for a couple of hours at the end of the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classy style I really like this dress. It's comfortable and classy. It's a bit shorter than I normally wear (I'm 5"8", 140 lbs)--hits well above the knee--so I'm not sure if I'll need to wear it with tights, but I can see it dressing up jeans, being worn on its own to a dinner or a fancy day at the office. It seems really versatile and looks really stylish without being very expensive. And, it works with our without the slip. The slip is not necessary (the silk dress isn't see through), so I foresee wearing it without the slipe (easy to unsnap the slip from the dress at the shoulder) to get the drapey effect of the silk on my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy Dress I absolutely adore this dress. It hangs beautifully. I wore it for the first time today and it was dry and breezy in Southern Cali, but I had zero problem with static. It was 100% the slip that was causing all the static. I ran a wire hanger over the entire thing (the metal grounds the static electricity or something. Just know that it works.). Then I sprayed the slip with Static guard. It lasted my entire work day and it didn't wrinkle either. So as long as the slip is taken care of it seems the dress won't be a pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress! I tried this on in the store yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. My regular Madewell size size is 10/12 and the large is roomy but not tent-like and very comfortable. The color is more maroon than in mentioned but it is a really great dress and I live in LA, so I assume this will be a staple. I am so excited for yet another awesome Madewell dress. Thanks, guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't let the static scare you away! I tried this dress on in the store and encountered the same static nightmare as everyone else. The poly slip was making most of the drama, I tried the shift on without the slip and the difference was night and day. The dress is large and shapeless but because silk is a porous fibre it catches the air when you walk and really really flatters your figure! With the poly slip you would lose all of that airy movement which I'm sure it would then wear like a sack. I've gotten so many compliments and I've only worn it twice so far! I'm 5'7 (34d, 30w, 40 hips) so it's hard to feel flattering in anything other than a cinched waist but this one does the trick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pics don't do it justice I was iffy about this dress but when I saw it on me I was pleasantly surprised by how flattering the cut and print are. (and I am very picky about prints.) The color is more of a maroon to me. I went with my true size medium and I'm glad I did, it's perfectly flowy. Although the small fit, it seemed too fitted through the hip which isn't really how this dress is supposed to be. Love the sleeves too. It comes with a slip so it's not sheer, although the slip does create some static cling. I'm hoping it's nothing a dryer sheet can't handle. Definitely a dress I will wear different ways throughout the year which makes it a worthwhile investment. I'll buy it again if it comes in solid colors.
