Making Faces Tiered Dress

Making Faces Tiered Dress is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with the print! I love this dress! It's not at all something I would normally purchase, but I was so obsessed with the print, so I ordered it immediately. I have a wide back and large chest, so the top portion of the dress fits me really well (it's somewhat baggy). I have a small waist and narrow hips, so the bottom also works well for me. Someone who is smaller on top and wider around the hips might find the fit a bit off. For reference, I am 5'4, 34DD, and usually a size 2 or 4 in pants (or 25-26 in Madewell jeans).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute dress I like the simple print. The dress is comfortable and flexible. The length can be adjusted due to the design. It looks cute. You may get comments: "you look like a ten-years-old" ;).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality This dress is great quality and the pattern is amazing. I have a smaller chest and the top half of the dress is not as suited for that but it still is very cute (just would be nicer if the top half was more tailored).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has potential but it's going back!!! The fit is just strange. I got a small and i'm 34A / 128lbs. The top part is too poofy and square shaped. Meanwhile, the bottom is fitted around the tops of your butt cheeks and flares out. I really wanted to like this because it looked cute on the model and the face design was unique, but ultimately I couldn't ignore something was "off" about the dress. I gave three stars because I think that if I wore this with the right shoes and accessories I might still be able to look decent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elastic waistband makes the fit less flowy when I first looked at the dress, there didn't look to be a waist band but I saw the other comments and figured it was pretty loose. I'm a size 30 and ordered an XL, thinking the waist band would look looser, but instead it's pretty form-fitting. Would have liked the dress more if it were more drop-waist like the image suggests, but good quality overall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super Cute, Off Material? I love the print of the dress, but the fabric was much stiffer than I had thought it would be so the fit is a little off. It also gets super wrinkled, super fast. Still love it though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Odd fit, but love the print! This dress was truly unflattering on my body--I actually laughed out loud when I tried it on. The material and print are so cute, though! I'll be promptly returning this and ordering the button-up shirt in the same print. This dress might be great for someone with slim hips, but for me, it just accentuated all the wrong things and lacked any slimming elements. The outer layer has ruching that can be adjusted to sit on your hips or hang straight, but the lining doesn't, which creates a kind of poofy/marshmallow/Michelin Man effect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awkward puff The pattern and the fabric are great, but it is tailored with elastic around the hip/waist area and is puffy/unflattering. Very disappointed I bought it as a final sale...and the low waistline is not great if you're short like me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weird Fit The fabric is really great quality and the pattern is pretty. But, the fit is really weird. I got a Small (fits TTS) and the ruching over the hips area is just really strange. For it to fit like how it does on the model, you have to not have any hips or probably size up a lot and tailor the shoulders & sleeves down. I wish it fit better since I love the print.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strange fit I love the print and it looked so cute on the model BUT the fit is just super odd. I’m a size small usually and it was just too poofy. The dress is way to big around the midriff and gives your waist absolutely no shape at all. The fabric is just a bit rough as well. I really wish I liked this dress
