Tailored Silk Dress in Safari Sketch

Tailored Silk Dress in Safari Sketch is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different than in the picture You must try this dress on before purchasing it because it looks very different than on the model. She must be wearing a size or two larger than her actual size. The dress is much more flattering than in the picture. I am 5'8 and 120 lbs and I wear a 0 and it looks great. It accentuates my waist much more and is shorter than in the picture. I love it! The fabric is amazing quality and the print is beautiful and unique. I wore a nude colored slip underneath to solve the bra issue and paired it with a turquoise statement necklace and some nude gladiator heels and got so many compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so unique! I love this dress. I've been looking for a different dress that can dress up itself. The back is a little difficult, but I just go bra-less:) I'm excited to pair it with cute tights and booties for the fall as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, versatile dress The pattern never fails to generate compliments whenever I wear this dress. It's a great talking point! As for the bra problem - I deal with the fact that part of my bra is always going to show. I wear a dark brown bra with this dress, so at least it matches well and isn't very flashy. Otherwise I wear a shrug or blazer with it. This dress has become a staple in my wardrobe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Fun Dress but Prepare to Bare This dress is really awesome but like the reviewer below I have no idea what I am going to wear for a bra. I think you will have to be OK with whatever bra you choose to show as the dress is very sheer and the slit in the back. Best choice would be not to wear a bra but don't go into any air conditioned rooms. The color is not true black but definitely more brown. It's definitely the standout dress that your closet needs but my closet doesn't need a standout dress. I do. So, unless I can figure out what to wear or not wear underneath the dress will have to go back. If Madewell could figure this out or make some good suggestions this dress would be my standout instead of my closet's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable, but see-through! Too bad because this dress is unique and fun... unless you are prepared to wear a slip underneath it, you'll be showing all you got. Another issue: you'd have to go bra-less to deal with the back slit or spend a ton of money finding the bra that hooks at the lower back... if those even exist. Great concept, bad execution. Returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Print! Love this dress, although it comes a bit big. I usually wear the cami silk dress style size 4 and went down to a 2 on this one. A 0 might fit too since the back waistline is stretchy. The sheer back with the slit is great, definitely a great buy. I am heavier in the hip area and this flattered my shape.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun & Casual but not super special The dress is nice. I got it on final sale, so I can't return it. It fits fine, but the top boob part is kind of weird, it looks like the lining inside is lopsided. I like it for casual use, but it's nothing that really stands out to me.
