Rated 3 out of 5Â by sandys Such a cute dress...
I really liked this dress in the store! I found it on the sale rack in black, XS. Loved the lace, the flowing fabric, and the side details with the lace up look. And I found that if I tied the strings from the sides in the back, the dress had some shape on me. But my husband didn't like it on me, probably because it was still too baggy, so it went back to the store!! For reference, I'm five foot nine inches, weight 125, wear 34B.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by mkiss Meh, it's ok....
When the gray came back in a medium I jumped on it (I typically wear a large, but this dress runs a little larger, and then I tie the sides around my back for a more fitted bust). It's a pretty dress, but it's not as great as the criss cross floral maxi, which is basically the same dress, but with a much lovelier pattern, and no sheer paneling. The gray is a beautiful and soft color, but when push came to shove, I felt like I was wearing nightwear. I might have kept it, because I could easily have layered it with shirts and sweaters to make it more flattering, but I also purchased the French Courtship Slip, and between the two, I would rather keep the slip. It's good that it went on sale, because if I was on the fence that might swing it in favor of keeping. Pretty dress, but all in all, didn't meet my expectations having purchased the criss cross maxi.

The dress is see through, so you ned need to buy a slip. The material is very delicate and the back is a bit longer than the front so heels may be needed as well.

I have wanted this dress for a long time! I finally received mine today after deliberating over it for months. Let me talk about the good parts first: The dress is just beautifully designed. The pleats and the U-shape neckline were a stroke of genius. Even though I am almost completely flat chested, I don't have to wear a bra with this and it is amazingly flattering. It makes me look like I actually have boobs. The lace panels are dreamy and floaty. The length is almost perfect, the longer back hem touches the ground for me but if I wear boots, it is just right. And now, for the bad: The fabric used is WAY TOO DELICATE. This dress looks like it would possibly fall apart after a few washes. My new piece has several of the pleats on the back COMPLETELY fallen apart, the fabric looks like it is ripping around all the stitches. And what's more, the shoulder straps were sewn on the wrong way, making them twist awkwardly with no way of straightening unless I were to take them apart and re-sew them! How could mistakes like this happen for a $168 dress? And how could a store ship this to me without even checking the condition of the dress? I am very disappointed but I love the dress very much and will attempt a replacement. Uploading modeling pics to FPme after I submit this review. For reference, I am 5'0, 85 lbs, 30A/32AA.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by janahfaye nice dress for one day
wore this dress for my wedding day, had it on for just a few hours and the pleats across the chest and back were becoming undone. Definitely needed a slip but don't I recommend the seamless mini. I bought it specifically for this dress but it did not work out. Otherwise, I got many compliments. If I ever want to wear it again the pleats need reinforcement.

I bought this dress in the pale grey, when that colour was available and I have to say that it is one of my favourite FP purchases. I love the alternating lace panels in the skirt and the lace up sides- it makes the dress that little bit different and special. The fabric is heavy but floaty and drapes beautifully. I do think the dress comes up a little large- but then that is the style- I like that it isn't too fitted on the bust and is roomy across my hips. A lovely dress that I have so far saved for special occasions but really should wear more often as I like it so much.

This dress is more beautiful than pictured online. I can see why it is amongst FP customer favorites. The lace is pretty, the style would fit most shapes and sizes. Not too long, even for a petite person as I am. However, does not come with the slip, and for the price it should be.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Natty52 Cool and sexy
With all the coverage that you will need if you wear nude underwear. Absolutely perfect for the hot summer in the Midwest, airy and sexy. Perhaps a bit too sexy for some occasions. Love the bodice of pintucks.
