Rated 5 out of 5Â by blue9girl9 My new favorite fall/winter staple
I rarely buy Free People items full price but between the Free People sale the other day and reading the reviews the word "staple" stood out and it is true. This can be worn at work, worn out with funky accessories or worn to lounge around! I won't be lounging in it.
This dress is so soft, a great length and not just a drab black dress. I love it!
I am 5'9 about 140lbs (not sure) and it fits perfectly. Even makes my backside look bigger!

This is a great dress to either wear as is or with a jumper over the top. Extremely comfy and I know I will get lots of wear out of it either casually or dressed up for work. I didnt find the bottom material cheap and flimsy as some other reviews but keep in mind it is quite see through at you may need to either wear tights or a slip underneath.

I have to agree with the last reviewer this is a great basic dress. It has a understated class and simplicity and will be very easy to accessorize for different looks. I bought the black and it is a true black. I was afraid it would be too washed out but it's not. The material is very soft and comfortable with some subtle detailing on the skirt part. I love simple easy to wear dresses like this. I am a medium/large in FP dresses and went with the medium for this one, so I would suggest sizing down. I am very happy with my purchase, it will be a great wardrobe staple!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by studio Agree to disagree
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer, I think that this dress is one of the best basics from FP. The upper portion is soft ribbed cotton which fits a little loose but still follows your shape, subtly showing your waist and other curves. I find it very flattering. Because I am petite, the sleeves are a bit long (not unusual with FP long-sleeve tops anyway). Curiously, the length overall is NOT a maxi on me at 5 ft tall, it falls to where it falls on the model in the ivory version (4th and 6th photos) so it may be shorter on taller girls if the length is consistent. The bottom part is a nice 100% cotton fabric with texture and some embroidery, yes, it may be a bit crinkly but not in a bad way, at least in the black version. I loved this dress and have worn it at least 3 times already with different accessories. It is a great canvas to play with. Can be worn plain (understated elegance) or you can get creative and dress it up with whatever you want for the look you feel like that day. For reference I am 5 ft 101 lbs and ordered the XS in black.

Heartbroken. The bottom portion is made of thin cheap crinkly fabric and the fit of the dress is just off - I went according to the measurements online but even in my size it is not flattering. The shoulders and waist are loose. I simply looked like a dowdy milk maiden.
