Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamie19 Many compliments on this dress! Sale price is a great deal.
I purchased this dress for a special event and received maybe a dozen compliments the first time I wore it. I agree that the blue is more grayish in person, and not quite as pretty as it appears online. But, it is still lovely! Bought my normal Madewell size and it fit great. I paid full price, so the sale price is a bargain!

this dress has a solid cotton slip that has adjustable straps that can be snapped to the shoulders of the eyelet dress. The eyelet dress is a soft cotton fabric that is loose fitting with larger armholes than the slip. It fits well and I think this is a great summer dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DMo99 Lovely dress ...
... I was disappointed to find a big hole develop in the front where the embroidery in the eyelet came apart in less than an hour's time wearing the dress. Now I need to spend half an hour or so sewing it up. This would be fine if I'd worn the dress several times over a season, but I'd only had it on the one time. Seems a rather fragile creation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by eyelet26 inner lining rides up when walking
overall a good summer dress. very cool on hot days because of the eyelets. i'm petite and small chested so it's quite roomy on top. The inner thin cotton slip rides up when I walk and sometimes I find myself having to pull it down.

I loved this dress online because I liked the blue color - however in person it is not as much a sky blue as it is a darker grayish blue. Also the top portion is very baggy. If I had liked the color better I would have exchanged this dress for an xs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EDSK Nice fabric, awkward fit
I really wanted to like this dress - which I did, until it was on me. Sadly, I will be returning the size 0 in the blue-grayish color. The color was not an issue, though the previous reviewers were correct in saying it was not a vibrant color. The problem for me is the fit. At 5'3" and with an Asian, petite build, the length is an awkward below-the-knee and not in a flattering way (made my legs look shorter). The overall fit looked confused on my frame: loose and large on top, and slightly tight in the hips (I am pear-shaped so this is a recurring problem for me). For those with better top to bottom proportions, or maybe a more boyish figure, this will be a nice summer dress.
