Denim Drop-Hem Shirtdress

Denim Drop-Hem Shirtdress is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
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 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from KEEP EM Coming MADEWELL!!! I make sure to buy every dress that has "Sleeves to the elbows" from here! I have every "Novel" and so far almost every "Shirtdress". However, I do wish this dress was a tad bit thinner of a material. Only because jean can get a little hot but otherwise, perfection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from adorable cut and design–but strange smell from the dye i fell in love with this dress from the moment I saw it but ended up returning because it had a very strong odor which i'm assuming is the dye from the fabric. i didn't want to risk washing this and not being able to return it :(

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 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.
