Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full of Summer Style Super comfortable with lots of casual style. My sister borrowed mine and decided she needed one as well! Excellent summer staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and stylish--runs a little big I've always loved Madewell denim--any of it! Very soft denim fabric and cute on the arms as another reviewer stated (hangs well on the arms). I probably could have gone down a size (I'm 5'4" and normally a medium in Madewell, but sometimes small in their tops because they often run large and billowy). I bought the medium, but probably could have gone to size small. But it feels comfortable on the arms and I think it might have been more snug in that area if I went down a size. So if you have thicker arms, don't go down a size, I would say. Great for traveling or just going out. Cute with a necklace or bracelet to put some color pop in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Took a risk with final sale and I'm so glad I did. I think the sleeves look cool and the whole thing is super comfortable. More like this please!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortably and Baggy - Not Well-Represented in Photos Tellingly, most of the product photos associated with this item feature the model at odd angles or with her hands on her waist. This is because this dress, as other reviewers have noted, has a large amount of excess fabric toward the back. Still, it's super comfortable, great for work or weekends, and I love the sleeves and pockets. The fabric is also soft & pretty. I'm 5'7 135 lbs and the small fits well. Length is similar to that shown on the model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strange fit I'm a pretty little gal and never had arm problems, but the fit of these sleeves is really disappointing. I've been a consistent xx-small in everything here before, felt confident with my final sale purchase...wrong. The cut of the sleeve is exaggerated enough that the fact that it is WAY tighter than shown on the model is glaringly obvious. There's a lot of material at the "cuff" of the sleeve that just doesn't need to be there. Makes movement uncomfortable at the arms. This is made even more annoying by the excessively baggy fit/cut of the rest of the dress and the much thinner denim than I had anticipated. A little scratchy even. I'm all for the baggy, slouchy shift dress, but the overall vibe is more trashbag and less cute. Really not impressed with the thickness of the fabric either, it's almost sheer somehow. Never seen this before with my other denim dresses from Madewell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the buy I bought this dress in my usual medium. I am an 8 in skirts and 30 in pants. 5'7 and 170 lbs (thick legs and butt, small waist, average bust) The length is good, looks good with flats or heels. It is super baggy where my waist is, especially in the back, but that is something I just have to live with having a big butt with a small waist. It definitely is not form fitting but nice to have to throw on and go and look polished. Also, pockets are ALWAYS a plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this NOW! I pulled this guy out of the bag and I don't think I'll take it off all summer. I'm tall (5'9") and sometime Madewell dresses feel short on me, but this beauty is just right. It might be the perfect throw-on-and-go dress and there are pockets. I got my usual size small. Seriously- BUY IT!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost Great I bought this online and have such mixed feelings about this dress. The fabric is great, and I love the hem, length, sleeves and in general how it looks from the front. My issue is the back of the dress is so billowy, it looks like a poof coming out from the shoulders to my but; I'm not sure what to do about that, maybe iron in some heavy pleats, I really don't know. I noticed there really are no good photos of the back of this dress and now I understand why. For reference, I ordered my normal size XS and am 5 ft 4 inches.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nope I bought this is an XS and it's huge! I look like a sack of potatoes. I'm 5'5, 117, 33-26-34. I don't mind billowy dresses, but it doesn't work with this style because the fabric is too thick. I'm returning. The wash is also lighter in the photos than it is in person.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute and easy, but yes - large i have to agree with other reviewers who love the style and design of the dress (the raw hem, side pockets, sleeves, and oversized front pockets are the types of details i love in madewell-designed pieces) but the back is really billow-y and was not cut to be flattering for my body at all (and apparently others as well). i will keep it as it is a great length (just above the knee for me - i am petite) and a really effortless staple. it's not perfect, though.
