I had one of these at university and loved it. This is a lovely soft cotton dress that needs to be belted and styled. I have a great soft black leather waist belt and some summer open boots in black. Teamed with silver/gold bangle stack (the tassles are gold) and matching earrings and I have a modern swing on my fav 80's look. The dress does run big though. I bought the small and it is quite roomy.

I was hoping to wear this in the fall/spring as a tunic with leggings; and a dress or beach coverup in summer. Not going to happen. The fabric is nice and I do like the pattern. But the gathered line of where the billowy fabric starts (on the bust) was a bit awkward and not like on the model. It was sitting right on my bust line. Maybe I could have sized down, but not worth it because the volume of the dress is just enormous! It would make a great 9 months pregnant-in-the summer dress. I tried a few belts to tame the volume and it just added pounds to my waistline and hips. Sigh. For reference I am 6', 145lb. and 34B. I got the M. I do have hips (pear shaped) but overall am slim, so this was disappointing. I'm a big fan of FP and find the clothes I wear constantly get compliments when it works. For me this one did not.

I think this dress is more suitable as a beach cover up than anything else. I purchased it in the medium and found it huge! I am 5'5" and usually run about an 8. Two things to think about when purchasing this dress: 1. It is very transparent, so I recommend layering it if you are going to be somewhere breezy. 2. There are little bells that dangle from the neckline tassels-- they jingle constantly, which was cute at first, but now I feel like a kitten toy. Overall, I think the material could be better for the price point. It is super comfy and flowy, but bunches strangely when I try to belt it at my natural waist and/or hipline for a drop-waist effect. The long and short: I adore the gauzy material, but wish there was less yardage to belt. Still deciding whether or not to return.

I tried this on in the store in the small and it fit more TTS than most FP dresses; hung just a little flouncy as it's meant to be. It was beautiful but I personally don't care to deal w/the gathered/fitted waist because I'm constantly pulling it down from my waist line, so I went w/the voile and lace trapeze dress instead. But this is a well made, high quality tunic that I would highly recommend. Looks even better w/a belt.

It is really comfortable gauzy material , very lightweight, it doesn't have that pleating in the front on top like in the picture, maybe it's just mine...but for the price again it is so comfortable and easy to pack... I have the very old vintage versions of this and they tear easily and are so fragile so it's nice to have this one that is new material. Sizing is accurate.
