Rated 5 out of 5 by from great summer dress am 5'2 -145 pounds. usually wear a small in Madewell. But bought an M in this dress. The arm hole is big and the inners may show from the side view. Overall great summer dress and great design. Quality design and craftsmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MACHINE WASHABLE! This dress is beyond adorable in person. I ended up wearing this dress for the first time on a 110 degree day - needless to say, it needed a wash afterward. I was a little hesitant to machine wash it, despite the care label instructions. Luckily, it washed up beautifully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful dress I love this dress! I wanted to wait until it was on sale, but decided I couldn't wait after going back on trying it on in the store multiple times :) It is definitely off-white, and the colors around the neckline are very vibrant and pretty. There are a lot of imitation versions of this dress, and I'm glad I went with one that is high quality and that I will keep for a long time. I got an XXS because I wanted it a little more fitted and short than it is on the model since I was wearing it to a party (usually wear an XS or XXS). It is not see through at all, really great dress with beautiful details.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer dress! I love this dress! I ordered it online, without ever seeing it in person, and am still really excited about how perfect it is. Very lightweight, breathes well in hot, Texas summer weather. The liner does a great job of keeping the dress from being see-through without letting it become heavy or hot. I'm 5'9" and went with a size small to keep the dress from being too billowy - very happy I did that. It fits great and I get tons of compliments when I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many compliments! I'd admired this dress online but my body is on the hippy side so I don't always luck out with shift dresses. I tried this on in large originally (I'm 5"4", pant size 8-10) and I definitely needed to size down. I was very surprised that the medium fit me perfectly. I wore it to work for the first time and got non-stop compliments. its a great hot weather dress and the stitching detail up top is so pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love! I just received this dress from the mail today and immediately fall in love with it! This dress is also a collaboration with JM Drygoods which btw I love their new collection. The embroidery is very well made and the color is so beautiful. I always wear xxsmall from Madewell, so is this time. I find this dress true to size. Highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Dress This dress is cute and well made, but unsure if I am going to keep. It runs a little large in my opinion. I am 5'8" 130 lbs, athletic build and got a XS which fits well. Not sure why but doesn't "wow" me like the other reviewers.
