Rated 4 out of 5Â by LFP Charming
I ordered and received the black one online. I gave this one 4 stars: most pros but one con.
My dress arrived with a small hole around the neckline. Instead of returning it I simply mended it. When i wore it, I notice another hole in the front lower layer of the dress. Fortunately it was not noticeable and I couldn't fix it at the time since I as already out. So for you gals who have or have ordered this dress beware of holes along the seams. I was disappointed becaused i waited a while before receiving this and for the price, I think the quality should be better. I'm a new fp fan (my new addiction since Anthro#, I may have to ponder a bit more about my fuure purchases.
Now for the pros, of which, are many. I have the xs and it fits like the model except the front hits me just above the knee and the sleeves just below my elbows. I'm 5'5, 108lbs for ref. The material is light and delicate - it the kind of cotton that i love in fp clothing. It comes with a slip which i didn't find see-through. It's femine, trendy, and has a good amount of lace and gathers that lends to a modern twist to victorian style. This dress is so comfortable and hangs well on many body types #I've checked out some fp pics) including my own.
I definitely will get lots of use in the summer. I'm just hoping it will not fall apart in the process. I still recommend this dress because it is so very charming!

I have read all the reviews and I must agree with the FP employee saying not to size down, DEFINITELY agree. If you want it to look like the model, then I would size up. I am 36-37 inch around the bust and normally a size 8-10/small. I bought the XS and with the measurements given for a small, XS has always worked for me with FP. However, the dress is wayyy too tight. Shame, I have waited so long for the dress and I have to send it back and our summer will be over by the time I get my size up!! But I will definitely go up to a medium, I don't think a small will work either. The dress is meant to be flowy in an elegant way, not fitted. The length in the front is perfect and unlike the Drippy Jersey Dress which sits quite high at the front. So do I like it??! ... Yes, it just needs a good iron and the right fit.

Â by noogagirlblue I LOVE it.
I was very hesitant to purchase this because a) I am not anywhere near the height and size of uh, a model, and b) I'm 40.
But I gave it a shot, because I fell in love with it. I'm glad I did. I am 5'8" and measurements are 34/28/38. A shapeless dress is not usually what I go for But in this case, it worked out.
I did not size up, because if the dress is already shapeless, I didn't want to make it too big on top of that. It turned out to be a good call. The shoulders were perfect, so it IS true to size, for my purposes. This pic is the outfit I planned for the dress even before it got here!! I was very happy with it.

This picture does not do it justice. I love, love this dress. Both colors are wonderful, I went with the cream color. The dress runs large, so be sure to size down. A piece that will carry you through all seasons. I especially like the fit in the sleeves, non-constricting. The structure is wonderful.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by GEL500 Love it!
I loved this when I saw it online, but even more in person! The way it drapes is beautiful, and the fabric feels nice as well. You would think it would be shapeless, but the lace gives it a nice form, and I love the way it falls. I usually wear a large in Free People's dresses, and I sized down on this to a medium and it works well!

If you have any boobs this will be an empire waist dress, there is no zipper so I did not put it all the way on as I was afraid to rip the lace under the bust. The rest of the dress is very FLOUNCY !! Like a little tutu is stuck under the dress to make it puff out. I'm sure you would just want to twirl the day away wearing it. It's an odd length as well, too short to wear alone(unless you are a very young girl ) and too long to be a cute tunic. I was hoping for beachy laid back shapeless chic and I got fit and flare "Blossom" ! I just needed a hat with a big sunflower and some high tops and I'd be ready for a 90's dance party! So..yeah. I sent it back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LisM beautifully detailed dress
This dress is the perfect combination of detailed yet incredibly wearable. The lace detailing makes it seem delicate and feminine, but the cut of the dress makes it extremely comfortable. I would even go so far as to say that it is even more flattering on than the pictures let on... I saw this dress online and had no intention of buying it, but in the store I tried it on out of impulse, and wound up loving it.
I am usually a S in FP dresses, and I bought an XS in order for it to be a bit more fitted in the waist. It really depends on what look you are going for, and I could have bought either size and been completely content.
I plan to wear this dress with tall socks and boots until it gets warmer, and then with sandals in the summer! Bottom line: this is a gorgeous, everyday piece to add to your wardrobe!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by midnightlove Beautiful piece!
This dress is very versatile and almost any piece of jewelry can bring it together. Since I am very petite 4'11 it was a bit loose but since it's meant to be a flowy dress it was perfect. I'm so happy with my purchase, definitely worth the price!
