Embroidered Tie-Sleeve Dress

Embroidered Tie-Sleeve Dress is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect, easy summer dress I purchased this dress on the Memorial Day sale. From the picture, the dress looked boxy and a little oversized but I decided to go for it anyway. It is a boxy cut and it is roomy, but somehow it still looks feminine and put together on. The embroidery is gorgeous and the color is so perfect in person. it will go with pretty much anything. The tie sleeves are lovely, too. I'm 5'10" and the length was short but not too short. It was the perfect length for an easy summer shift dress in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love, love this dress, BUT 4 inches shorter than description is a BIG problem!!!! LOVE Madewell & was excited to find a cute, cotton summer dress with sleeves, pockets, liner "that falls 35 5/8" from highest point of bodice". With such a specific (5/8") measurements, I felt confident in buying the dress I loved from first sight online, but had never tried on. I wouldn't have been surprised or written a review if there was a one or two inch length discrepancy, but FOUR & 5/8" is worth writing about in the first review I've ever taken time to write. I still feel 5 stars for style & quality are deserved, because I want to see more Madewell dresses like this, BUT 4 + inches make this a dress I can only wear at certain times in certain situations Since it was a final sale, I have let out the hem & gained another inch & a half, but it is still 4 inches above my knee & I am only 5'4"". MEASURE TWICE CUT ONCE!! Madewell is a cut above the rest, but this cut did not pass my test. Sad instead of glad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute spring/summer dress This dress is super cute and comfy. Easy to throw on and go. I happen to have also purchased the sandals the model is wearing, and they go very nicely together. As a petite person, I purchased an XS and it's a little on the long side so I belt it. There are pockets, and they make the hip area bulge just a bit so I took one star off for appearance. I wish the inside of the pocket had been sewn to the lining to keep it in place better. I may have that done myself, but it's otherwise a great dress and worth the price I got it for (20% off)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty embroidery I was drawn to the embroidery of this dress and decided to order it online since I did not see it at my local store. While it is really pretty in person and flattering for a shift dress, I am returning it. Why? While the bottom part of the dress is lined, the top part (chest up) is unlined. The exposed stitching from the embroidery was scratchy against my skin. If you can get past this aspect of the dress, I recommend ordering it. The fit of the shift is slightly large as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from hospital gownish it surprises that no one else thinks this looks like a hospital gown. online, it looks great. in fact, i bought it with confidence because i've purchased the same style dress in white with black pinstripes and i wear it all the time. when this arrived, the only thing i could think of was, wow this looks like a hospital gown.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I probably eyed this dress for about three weeks and finally caved and bought it, full price – which was a lot for me. I considered it an investment piece because of how expensive it was and how great it would look with my brown Warren sandals. However, when it arrived, it just looked nothing like the photos. The pictured dress appears to be made out of a very light denim color but what arrived is much more BLUE. I agree with the previous review – the lining/pocket situation is weird and cheap-feeling. I think the fabric was thick enough that the extra lining just made this dress suffocating and too tight for me in my normal, go-to size. The pockets were uncomfortably placed, also, and I wish they weren't on the dress altogether. It is a testament to Madewell though that even when I put the dress on it still looked pretty normal: just not GOOD. The construction of the dress makes me think it wouldn't look like it does on the model on anyone.
