Perfect Chambray Shirtdress

Perfect Chambray Shirtdress is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! Like the other reviewers mentioned, this is a fantastic dress. I am 5'5, 130lbs, broad shoulders and usually take a size 4, and small fit me perfectly. It looks just like the model. I wanted to wear a tank under it and leave some buttons open, but the white tank was showing through, so I ended up leaving the top 2 buttons open with no tank. It was 90+ degrees out this week in SoCal and this dress kept me cool. If Madewell made this style in other colors and fabrics I would buy them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from definitely perfect I cant tell you how many denim/chambray dresses I have tried and returned this spring/summer. I hesitated with this one because of the price but I should have know madewell would make the perfect one. Perfect light blue color, no irritating/sweaty collar, top part of dress sits open perfectly when not buttoned. light enough for a medium hot day in dc. Love it. For reference I am 5'3" 135-40 size 4-6; got a small in this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first wear I was hesitant about this dress even though I loved the product shot because I couldn't tell how heavy the chambray was or just how boxy it would fit. I am also 5'4" and sometimes these dresses are just a bit too long. However, this dress not only fit perfectly, hits just at the right spot without being too short and feels amazing on. The chambray is so soft and feels great on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Chambray Shirtdress indeed I am in love with this shirt dress. I am 5'4, 130 lbs and typically wear a size small in shirts and a medium in skirts or pants. I ordered a small and I am very happy that I did. Because of the cut at the bottom of the dress, this may not be work appropriate (as it tends to ride up when I sit down or bend over). Overall, this is a lovely summer dress and super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as pictured The denim dress is exactly as it appears online -- and I love it. I'm 5'5" and 115ish and the small fits me perfectly. It's easy fitting and will perfect for the AZ summer...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short (but I'm 6'2") I am used to clothes being hit-or-miss, being 6'2" and all. But for tall girls and girls who like your dresses with more modest hemlines, beware of the shirt-tail cut and the gap below the bottom button on this one. I can normally get away with short dresses (and have to, if I want to shop at any normal stores), but with this one, while it was long enough while standing and sitting, the shirt-tail hem and the gap below the bottom button made it where you could almost see my underwear in the front sitting down and could definitely catch a peek of my bum standing up! Just make sure you try it on and stand, sit, and look at yourself from different angles! Otherwise the fabric is fabulously soft, and I see this being a wonderfully versatile and long-lasting piece for petite girls.
