Silk Gather Dress

Silk Gather Dress is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer dress I bought this as part of the recent sale and picked up the dress in the white. The dress is very flattering, and drops to a great length for this season and the fabric is a good choice as it helps the gathering to sit well and not appear bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply lovely This is just what I was looking for in a summer white dress. Simple yet elegant. This can easily be dressed up or down for a variety of looks. I was glad to see that it was lined although this was not included in the item description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely dress, runs pretty big I bought this dress in a medium in white to wear in my engagement photos. I'm usually a size 6, 34D, kind of on the border between small and medium (usually when things are a bit more fit on the bottom, I'm a medium. Otherwise, I'm a small). The medium was way too big, but I liked the dress, so found a small in one of the Madewell stores that they shipped to me. It fit perfectly. Without the ribbon sash, it's very loose and not very flattering, but if you like to have a defined waste like I do, it's a great dress with the sash. Our engagment photos turned out great, and this flowy, flattering dress definitely added to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grecian Goddess I ordered this dress in white and debated for 2 days whether or not I should order a size medium or small. I'm 5'10 and have come to discover that with most Madewell dresses, a medium (or size 6) fits better when there's gathering at the waist. I finally went with a small and the dress fits perfectly! The fabric is so soft and flowy and makes me feel like a Greek Goddess. SO happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, not for my shape I'm 5' 10" and usually between a small and medium at Madewell--I'm also quite busty. I went with the small in white, and the dress was lovely, but didn't do anything for my shape–made me look a little "short-waisted" and bulky. The fabric is luxurious and soft, and very nice quality–it's definitely more of a special occasion dress for me, I would be afraid to have summer picnics in it, especially in white.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from photo is misleading In the photo of both the black and the white dress on the website the model is putting her hand in a pocket.This dress I received does not have pockets. I looked everywhere. Nothing. I chatted with an associate who informed me -- the dress does not have pockets. Wondering why Madewell chose to misrepresent the item on their website. Also wonder how many other products will be a slightly different version of what is shown when they arrive. Bummer.
