Rated 4 out of 5Â by Greediguts Oh!!
I do like this dress. I ordered a small. I should have ordered an XS. I may exchange for the smaller size. The dress is fully lined and has a pocket on each hip. Both of those things makes me happy. I also like that it is slightly heavy. I live in Wyoming and it gets chilly here, even in the warm months.
The measurements on the FP website must be wrong or are taken while the dress was laying flat and not in the round. The measurements at the bust are closer to 45in.
I am 36C bust, 33in. waist and 40in. hips.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by susay Original design
First off - ignore the sizing I marked: I couldn't get it to move where I wanted it...read on. Love the lattice design under the arms...it holds the dress in place to prevent revealing your breasts; therefore no bra or T are needed. Im 5' 3" 112# got XS and fit is perfect. I read the review on it being heavy, but i disagree. The dress is lined and very effectively even in white. I intend to wear my skinny jeans or leggings to take it into the fall.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by megandell Oh, so cute!
First to review!! As soon as I spotted this I just had to get it. Did not disappoint! This is over sized and fits just like studio shots, I'm an extra small and its definitely roomy on me. I thought the skirt was a little too much fabric at first but then I ironed it and it is not too puffy.
Will be wearing all spring and summer for sure, grab this one its a keeper!!

I adore this dress.
I wasn't a fan of a normal bra under it, and I haven't tried to go without yet. But, I have a sweet bright blue lace bra that is perfection.
I've worn this piece out to dinner, to travel (pockets!) and to spend a day walking the city.
Yes, it feels like a lot of fabric, but the flow and the weight are freeing, while cut in a flattering way. And, as another reviewer mentioned, if you give it a steam or iron, the "bulk" goes away.
The imperfection of the edges and the open sides are fantastic.
Compliments are constant in this dress - I am much shorter than the model (5'2) and still it manages to be flattering and cute on.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by chelseaannee I LOVE THIS DRESS
I love this dress! the colour is beautiful and it is lined so nicely. I ordered the blue one in an XS and its baggy but in a lovely fun way!

I got this dress in blue. The color is a rich deep blue ever so slightly darker the picture, which I love.
Now about the sizing... People have been saying it looks like a sack, and to some extent, that can be true. I am 5'10", 140lbs and a 32B. I got a size small, but probably should have gone for the xs. When laid flat, there are about 2 inches of extra fabric on each side of the waist.
At first, I thought the sleeves made it look a little too wide for my liking, but after wearing it around, I got lots of compliments and just like the way the dress moves. It's loose and comfortable. I love the lace-up detailing and pockets. Looks great with sandals or boots and I like the look with an oversized sweater over it for chilly evenings. The length is perfect, hits me squarely in the middle of my thigh, which is great for biking! (I commute by bike)
The fabric is great. Only reason for giving it 4 stars is because I think it really does run too big. Smaller people might have to get it altered.

I so wanted to like this. The color was lovely and vibrant, it has pockets which is awesome. Unlike some others I like the weight of the dress. It is a relief to see more lined dresses from free people. I absolutely hate having to search out a slip or something to wear under a dress. Too much effort. The only problem is it was too big. I am an extra small and there is no smaller size. Yes this is supposed to fit somewhat loose but it was too much. Instead of being cutely loose as in the photo it was just bleh. I also suspect that this might be quite lovely on taller girls. I am only 5 feet so it does not quite lay right and is not the right length on me. Maybe if you were able to size down or if you are taller it would work for you... I envy you tall girls this would have been a great dress.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by HRKW Just too big, and dumpy at the bottom
I bought two of these, one in pink and one in blue, and I'm torn as to whether to return these (I hate returning things - the process is so long, it's painful), exchange them for the smallest size, or wear them over a swim suit at the water park. They're just so big, frumpy, and shapeless. The unsewn hem at the bottom, all torn and dangly, just looks messy, not cute, as I'd hoped. The sides are so revealing, also - unless you live in San Francisco, where you can wear anything you like and no one will judge, you'll be taking a chance not wearing something under this dress. The four stars I've given it are because I really don't like giving anything less, the colors are very beautiful and vivid, and I'm thinking that if I could trade them for the small or shrink these dresses somehow, they might just work with a slip underneath. But how do you shrink rayon? I don't know. Might go back, at least to exchange. Perfect for someone with more guts and who lives in a less conservative town than me.
