Rated 5 out of 5 by Katheryn Buy it!
I saw this dress online and really liked it, but decided to check to see if my local store had it in stock before purchasing. I am glad I did, because I loved it so much that I bought both the red (sold out online) and the black. The dress runs slightly large, but I did stick with my regular size as the dress is washable cotton and could possibly shrink and I liked the extra length. I am 5'1" and the dress falls to the middle of my knee, just the way I like it. If you are on the fence about this lovely dress, go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaisyMabel Wonderful dress!
I got tons of compliments on this. It looks as cute with flat sandals or Converse as it does with heels. Comfortable, and it has pockets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by STLgirl Thank you, Madewell
I LOVE this dress. I typically am sized out of Madewell clothes because I'm petite (5'2") and there clothes are too long or big for me. I get excited when Madewell offers some of their clothing in 00 or XXS because these sizes usually fit me. This dress was perfect in the 00 and it still hit me above the knee. Even though the eyelet is on trend, I believe this cut will be stylish for years to come. Got the black and wish I could get the red also, but sold out in my size. Madewell, I love your tomboy asthetic. Please offer more of your styles in XXS and 00.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saskia Lovely, runs small
A great dress! Summery, but will be appropriate to wear to work on hot days. I usually wear a size 4 or 6-- this dress runs SMALL and I was comfortable in a size 2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sgreen01 lovely but tiny arms!
i wear a 32DDD, so it can be hard to find similar dresses that fit through both the bust and my waist, but this dress does!
i love the cut......except through the arms; it's really tight. if you have anything beyond twig-tiny arms, it will probably be very snug. this is my second madewell dress with this shape (i have a striped songbird dress of theirs too), and they both do that! why, madewell, why???
but it was so flattering that i bought it anyway, despite the limited mobility in my arms. be warned!
i'm 5ft, 32DDD and i got a 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlexandraW Beautiful but poor quality
I bought this dress in red for my graduation recently. It's a beautiful dress and I love how there's straps inside to hold your bra straps. But what I'm disappointed about is that during the first time I wore it, I barely lifted up my arms and the dress tore slightly in the armpit area. It's fixable and I don't know if it's due to poor quality since other's have had the same problem, but it was just disappointing since I paid a lot of money for the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by miszdreyy Adorable
I bought this dress in the red and it's just adorable. It's great in the black and white as well. The red is an actual bright red color instead of the more modern red that is more of a poppy/orange undertone. I guess depending on your style, you could either be in love with this or you'll think it makes you look more like a little girl. I, for one, could really care less, since its my type of dress. The only issue with the fabric is that it does not give. So if the sleeves are fitted, I suggest trying a size up unless you don't mind the seams (where the armpit area is) coming out. It also does wrinkle, if that's a concern. But other than that, it's just the cutest dress you can wear up or down, anywhere and everywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by blondeaudry Size up!
OK, this is beautiful. The eyelet detailing is perfect. But it runs so big! I was swimming in a size 00 (5'6", 100 pounds, 32B-24-34). The sleeves are also bigger/pouffier than they look, and stick out oddly. Slimmer sleeves and a slimmer fit overall and it would be perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by goldenbear Beautiful, but made poorly.
This dress is beautiful and I've received a lot of compliments when I wore it. However, I have only worn it once because in the first few minutes after barely lifting my artm, the dress tore in the armpit area. bought this dress in red for my graduation recently. This is really disappointing, especially after spending a lot of money on this dress.
