Striped Button-Back Tee Dress

Striped Button-Back Tee Dress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique! Love the back Love! Very cute - the buttons in the back really add something. I echo the reviews that say it runs a bit small - it's really just in the hips. If you don't have bigger hips, probably not a problem, but if you do and you're between sizes, maybe size up. I am usually a medium or a large - I took the large in this, but it was just cause of the hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Dress I cannot say enough good things about this dress. I originally bought it in my normal size, which was too small, and had to check obsessively to catch it in stock in a size larger. It was well worth the effort though. The size bigger fits like the model, perfectly oversized. The material is thick and so comfortable. If I could wear this every day, I would. I would love this to come back next summer in solid colors. I would buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it; wish it was just a little longer I'm 5' 2 1/2" and this dress is pretty short on me. I love it so much that I am keeping it anyway. I bought it in my usual size, XS, and it fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfortable The fabric is heavier than I expected but it's still ok for summer. The dress is not boxy. The buttons and stripes really add to the design. Overall this dress is cute and comfortable. I've worn it several times since purchasing. I'm always disappointed when it's in the laundry. I'd wear it every day if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect summer dress I can't wait to wear this dress all summer long. it's such a versatile dress: it's cute on its own, with a denim jacket or even a leather jacket for an extra punch and it looks great with sandals or sneakers! I am typically an XS in madewell dresses, and the XS in this fit, but it was ever so slightly snug in the hips. it looked fine but I would have known it was tight -- I went up to a small and it gives the perfect amount of breathing room without sacrificing comfort. the buttons are such a cute detail

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! My first Madewell purchase! I bought an XS based on the sizing guide (I'm 5'7, 125lbs, 32" bust) and it fits me just right. It isn't form fitting because it's a t-shirt dress, but it's still very flattering. The material is thick enough not to show through. It isn't as soft as I was expecting, but it feels durable. It hits me maybe 4" above the knee but I don't find it too short. It looks great with leggings too! I'm very happy with this dress and the buttons are so cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best t-shirt dress I ordered this in a small due to the other review that said to size up. I ended up exchanging it for an XS (my normal Madewell size) and it is perfect! I have a very straight body and this is the first t-shirt/sheath dress that flatters me without a belt. The length is good for work without a belt and good for weekend with a belt. Madewell, PLEASE make this in some solids like navy and black! Or even other colors in stripes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual and comfortable dress but a tad small It is extremely comfortable and I can see myself wearing this all summer to run errands in and wear around the neighborhood. I usually waver between an XS and S at Madewell. I ordered the XS in this dress and it is slim fitting and a little on the short side. I am only 5'4'' and the XS seemed too short. I am going to return it and get a size S. The material is nice and substantial as well as soft. Thanks, Madewell, for this great casual summer dress!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it runs very small! the colors are nice as is the feel of the cotton. unfortunately it runs very small! i'm typically a sm/med in dresses at madewell (wearing the afternoon dress in a small as i type this) so i went for a medium since i wanted a looser fit. it was form fitting if not tight. i might even suggest sizing up two size if you're looking for the fit that the model is wearing.
