Rated 5 out of 5 by Give this dress a try I'm not sure why other reviewers reported puckering problem. I have tried two dresses at a store, and both were fine. No puckering at all! Try this dress, it is beautiful! I am usually a small in Madewell dresses, and size 4 (not 2) worked better. Gorgeous silk, and great fit! December 15, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful dress, odd fit. The houndstooth silk is beautiful and comfortable, but the sleeves are incredibly long and don't stay rolled up. I'm 5'6" and usually fit a size 4 but because of the puckering around the placket, I went with a size 6 and I am not busty. Nonetheless, I still love the dress and have found ways to make it work with my outfit. December 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pucker Problem I tried this dress on in the store, had it on for about twenty seconds, loved it, bought it, brought it home. I tried it back on the next day and realized it just wasn't fitting me well - the sleeves are ridiculously long for me (I'm 5'3 and the sleeves had been rolled in the store) and the button placket on the front was puckering in all sorts of weird ways. I am a little busty, but a 10/12 in Madewell dresses usually fits fine (36D, I got the 12). It was tight at all, but no matter what I did or how many buttons I left undone, I could not get it to stay flat, or at least not pull in a weird way as soon as I moved my arms. It's a beautiful dress, the fabric and construction are on point, as usual. I love the piping and the retro print. I'm jealous of the girl who fits this dress, but mine is going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Puckers Oddly Around Chest Although I'm petite (5', 105 lbs), Madewell dresses usually fit me really well. I expected this dress in Size 0 to fit me like other dresses of the past. However, I noticed weird puckering around the placket, and I'm not busty by any means (32B). There's something odd about the button placement. Also the elasticized waist may work better for shorter torsos. I loved the feel and pattern of the fabric and I'm a fan of Madewell's silk. For those who will fit into it fine, this dress will work great for day-to-night situations and as an effortless clothing option. Wish it'd hung better on my frame. November 20, 2013
