Button-Sleeve Sweater-Dress in Stripe

Button-Sleeve Sweater-Dress in Stripe is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Wave dream This dress is pure wool, has a flattering straight cut. and looks like something Anna Karina would've worn tooling around on Jean-Paul Belmondo's motorbike. What's not to love? Okay, the buttons gape a bit, so if you're outdoors, the wind runs right up your arms. Annoying, but if it's cold enough to wear a wool dress, it's cold enough to wear a turtleneck underneath, too, so moot point. The cut is big, as other reviewers have noted, but again, it's a winter dress--you want to be able to add layers. For reference, I'm 5'6", 115 pounds, and got an XS. I could've sized down to an XXS -- my usual size in Madewell dresses -- but I wanted a roomy fit. Also, since it's wool, I'm guessing it'll shrink in the wash. Only real complain is no pockets. Madewell is usually so good about designing dresses with pockets. Still totally worth the sale price, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Cute! Just purchased this dress and I love it. I had to go down a size because the XS was a little too baggy on me. The XXS small fit perfectly. The arms are not too long or short and the dress hits right at my knees. I am 5'1 for height reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain Dress I really don’t understand the negative reviews for this dress. It’s a bargain and if you heed the advice of others and buy one size smaller, it’s a great deal. I went into the purchase viewing this as using this as a tunic sweater instead of a dress. I’m5’7”, 120 pounds and I purchased an extra small. I wear a long sleeve black T-shirt underneath and I pair it with black leggings and black suede ankle boots. I received tons of compliments on the dress. The buttons on the sleeve really make it unique. I have no doubt that women were googling where to find the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute Very cute dress, stylish and simple. Goes with or without leggings. True to size. I purchased a small and fits to my liking (5'2.5"; 127 lbs). Great quality as you would expect from Madewell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It'll Do I wore this dress Christmas day. I'm 5'3 34DD usual size 6 in pants and got a medium in this. It was just a HAIR big. I expected this since it's a sweater dress. When I put it on, I looked like a sack. The bell sleeves, plus the stripes, plus the non-waist, plus my huge bust didn't look right. After wearing it around for a bit I felt a little better about it and wore it to my three family gatherings. A few things, 1.) If you're busty, you may want to consider either not buying this dress at all or wearing a scarf, because the stripes plus the loose fit will NOT make you look smaller. 2.) The buttons are a cool feature that I like a lot, however your hair WILL get stuck in the buttons if it's past your shoulders. 3.) A belt might make it better, or maybe it's just meant for people who aren't as curvy. I'm keeping it, but I probably won't wear it as much as I thought I would.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very large bell sleeves the sweater dress is thicker than I anticipated and the bell sleeves really flare out, a lot more than it looks on the picture. it wasn't too flattering on me and the knit was slightly itchy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made for long armed ladies I am 5’3.5 and a size medium. The sleeves on this dress are too long by at least 6 inches ☹️. Will cost a fortune to shorten. Cannot return as it is final sale. So disappointing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Runs very big The design looked so cute online with the button sleeves. However, when I tried it on after it was delivered I was very surprised at how large it runs. For reference I'm 5'3 138lbs and I ordered a small. The sleeves go almost to the end of my fingers and the top and mid section are so baggy. I never would have thought that a small would not fit me. It sucks because it was a no return item....
